UFC president Dana White has always been very clear that he is a boxing fan. He may have his issues with how boxing does business (who doesn't?) but he does know a fair amount about the sport and enjoys watching big fights.
In a recent Yahoo! video, Dana sat down to discuss Saturday night's bout between Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto as well as talk about the potential fight between Floyd and Manny Pacquiao:
Transcript after the jump...From the video:
Cotto Vs. Mayweather is an interesting fight. I think the question in this fight is what does Cotto have left? A lot of people question really what he has after that beating he took from Margarito. Came back and he beat Margarito. But Floyd Mayweather? I truly do believe that Floyd is one of the best ever. His defense is awesome, he hasn't fought in a long time. Floyd's taking these big layoffs now and Floyd's not that young. He's 34-35 years old. But I think he should beat Cotto, he should beat Cotto pretty easilly. The fight I'm interested in, as is the rest of the world, is the Manny Pacquiao/Floyd Mayweather fight. Which I'm dying to see that fight. And I actually think that Pacquiao has the style to beat Floyd. A lot of people don't think so now because he fought that last fight. If you do him and Marquez ten times, that fight looks exactly the same ten times because that's how they match up. Him and Floyd? I still think...Floyd's whole game is speed and Pacquiao's whole game is counterpunching...POWER counterpunches and I think that he'll end up clipping Floyd with something. But who knows? We could sit here and argue this fight all day. People who think Pacquiao would win, people who think Floyd would win and there's only one way to find out, and that's for them to fight. That fight needs to happen and it needs to happen soon.
