Boxing isn't what it used to be, but any time there is a prize fight, the sports world pays attention.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0) is listed as a 6-to-1 favorite over Miguel Cotto (37-2) for Saturday night's fight, but Cotto won't be backing down.

Despite being an underdog, Cotto has been the better fighter in the past three years. He's competed in more fights, continues to improve his overall game and continues to gain confidence from his performances.

Mayweather Jr. has only fought three times since 2009; Cotto has fought six times en route to defeating Antonio Margarito—one of his two blemishes in his career.

Cotto has a great opportunity to shock the boxing world on Saturday night.

What Would Happen to Boxing If Cotto Upset Mayweather Jr.?

You had to think about this before, right? With Manny Pacquiao and Mayweather Jr. fighting other boxers, there is a chance that one could get upset.

Then who cares about the potential super fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather Jr.?

I certainly wouldn't.

Boxing fans want to see the super fight while both are still in their prime. We continue to play the waiting game, and I'm not sure we will ever see it.

And we shouldn't see it if Mayweather Jr. loses to Cotto on Saturday.
