Miguel Cotto: “I will prepare as never before to defend my title on May 5 in Las Vegas and return to Puerto Rico on May 6 as champion. I guarantee it.”

Floyd Mayweather: “When it comes down to it, one man has to rise to the occasion and that will be me….Floyd Mayweather is not a cheater like Antonio Margarito and Manny Pacquiao.”
