The Miguel Cotto vs Manny Pacquiao fight is slated to be one of the best boxing fights of the year. At a press conference Wednesday night in Las Vegas, both Miguel Cotto, 29 and Manny Pacquiao, 29 weighed in and talked about the fight.

The Miguel Cotto vs Manny Pacquiao fight time is scheduled for 6 pm pacific time on Saturday, November 14, 2009 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It can also be watched on PPV for $54.95 on HBO. See the link below for live stream information.

Miguel Cotto (34-1, 27 KOs) vs Manny Pacquiao (49-3-2, 37 KOs) are two of biggest-money making stars in boxing today, and they have been compared to some of the boxing greats in the 1980s, including Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Roberto Duran and Tommy Hearns.

A few months ago, the Mayweather-Marquez fight drew more than 1,000,000 PPV customers, and HBO believes the Miguel Cotto vs Manny Pacquiao might do even better than that.

Cotto had a catch weight Wednesday night of 145 pounds, two pounds under the welterweight limit, and he is considered the underdog in this fight, but no one knows what might happen. Cotto brings the rich Puerto Rico boxing tradition with him and a lot of determination.

"He is coming from a lower weight division and if he thinks he's going to have the same power as Miguel Cotto, his thinking is very wrong,'' Cotto said at the press conference. "I am prepared for anything he can bring me that night. He has a lot of things besides speed. I have to be prepared for all that he can show me."

A native of the Phillipines, Pacquiao is the favorite in Saturday’s fight and could become the first boxer to win world titles in seven weight divisions.

Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach said that he will win by a "spectacular knockout," but Pacquiao said that his objective is to do his best to uphold the pride of his country. "But if I knock him out, that will make me happy, too," he said Wednesday.

In an ESPN forum Friday, Tyler C. from Salt Lake City, Utah asked Pacquiao, “Manny, How are you going to account for Cotto's strong left hook?”

Pacquiao responded: “We've been training in the gym to overcome and counteract his strength. I think I'm the faster and quicker fighter so it all depends on who lands it fight. We have a good game plan to overcome Cotto.”
