The fighters were on the scales in Vegas earlier this evening, making weight for their HBO pay-per-view clashes for the event that will be headlined by Floyd Mayweather vs. Miguel Cotto. What was a fairly standard affair, with the only odd moment being Shane Mosley coming in half a pound heavy for his bout with Canelo Alvarez, got a bit heated after Mayweather and Cotto hit the scales.
The two men engaged in a lengthy staredown with both refusing to back down. Floyd chomped on a piece of gum, grinning at Cotto, while Cotto shot back an icy stare. Eventually Cotto began jawing with Floyd a little bit, Floyd jawed back (as did his entourage, which refuses to ever shut up) and eventually the two men had to be separated.
Let's take a look at some photos from the evening. All photos courtesy of Tom Hogan - Hoganphotos/Golden Boy Promotions.
