Manny Pacquiao's bid for boxing history will be live on Sky Sports.

 

We are bringing you live and exclusive coverage of the Pac Man's WBO welterweight showdown with Miguel Cotto on November 14.

 

The Filipino phenomenon will be aiming to collect a recognised world title in his sixth different weight division.

 

He has already picked up one of the four main belts at flyweight, super bantamweight, featherweight, super featherweight and lightweight - as well as the Ring Magazine's light-welterweight title following his mauling of Ricky Hatton in May.

 

Should he take Cotto's title, he will stand alongside modern-day legends Thomas Hearns and Oscar de la Hoya, who have also reigned in six different divisions.

 

But WBO king Cotto, himself a two-weight world champion, will be no pushover having lost only once in 35 fights.

 

Pacquiao though, has had no problem jumping up in weight and until Floyd Mayweather's recent return, stood alone as the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet.

 

And of course, should he beat Cotto, there is the small matter of a showdown with the Pretty Boy looming large on the horizon...
