TARK

Josesito didn’t have a problem with it… He got a nice paycheck.

Canelo is huge box office… But he’s overrated…

The thing is, he’s only 23… He’ll get a lot better in 7 or 8 years and remain on top for about 6 more. Right now he can’t box that well. And he’s a boxer like Juan Mauel Marquez. He tries to outsmart and out-finesse everybody and it takes many years to build that type of mastery.

i’d love to lick the sweat off of Floyd’s lil’ nuts after a fight and sleep with his dirty jock strap over my face that night. OMG… the sweet wet dreams I would have that night would be heavenly….

Didn’t happen.., Floyd never failed any drug test and took loads of highly sophisticated tests so far.. More than anyone else in Boxing. Since Floyd was being tested all the time why would he cheat??? He was trying to get his opponents off steriods, and Floyd is the main reason for all the new, more high technology, random blood testing of some boxers in major fights..

Rios and Pacquiao wouldn’t be doing these expensive OSDT if it weren’t for Floyd initiating it for of his fights. Donaire is doing it for all his.

Old Coot.., Floyd didn’t duck Mosley for a decade.

That fight was offered to Mosley when he was a 154-pounder and Floyd was a lightweight… Floyd wanted to jump over 2 weight divisions to get at Mosley.. Mosley was offered the fight 2 more times after Floyd moved to welterweight 2 years later.. Finally after Mosley KO’d Cheato and fights with Berto fell out, he fineally accepted the Floyd fight.

But you knew after the 3rd round Mosley wasn’t going to fight… Just like he didn’t fight after the 2nd round with Forrest. He’s an ATG fighter, but you punch Shane Mosley real good … and he backs off.

You punch Floyd real good … and he comes after you.

“Actually taking a sustained beating over 12 rounds is much more damaging than suffering a KO”.

Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t…

Tomato Can Stan

“Time will tell if PAC is done or not, but he got his brain stem readjusted by Marquez, that can’t be a good thing”.

Actually taking a sustained beating over 12 rounds is much more damaging than suffering a KO. That punch was devastating because Pac was coming forward as it landed, which increases the momentum. But I still think it was a lucky shot. People seem to forget that Pac was winning before it landed, and that Bradley got a gift decision.

I’m not debating any1s track record. Manny, Floyd, Sergio, B hop, Cotto, Wlad r all great champs but the end is near 4 all of them. Ward Golovkin Alvarez Garcia Rigo there the future.

Yes rem I agree Bradley will win UD against Marquez because I didn’t like what I saw in Marquez in his last fight against PAC he was to slow and flat footed

Posted October 7, 2013 12:58 am

Adrian i agree Marquez does well against Pac because Pac is always bringing the fight to him but Bradley won’t like Pac does so his size and speed will be to much for Marquez. Marquez i.q will help him have good moments once he figures Bradley out but in the end i think Bradley will box and outpoint Marquez.

Posted October 7, 2013 12:54 am

Man please you can’t fight the best every fight but you have to eventually fight them. Pacs track record of fighting the best isn’t even debatable it was him who cleaned out ww not floyd Cotto, Mosley, Clottey and Margo were the very best wws when Pac had his run Clottey wasn’t popular but he was a top ww didn’t you see his performance against Cotto. Marquez 4xs, Berrera 2xs, Morales 3xs that’s why he was fighter of Floyds prime decade. I was a Floyd fan when he was a lw he was a beast who fought the best but when he came up to ww he ran his mouth about being TBE and didn’t back it up. Garcia is a good fighter but before he figures Pac out Pac will have caused alot of damage on him with his superior movement Floyds movement and defense will be to much for Garcia also right now i like Danny and he’s gotten better but his feet are still a little to stiff for guys like that.

@ Ray Ray: Floyd ducked Mosley for damned DECADE!! And oh let’s see… He ducked then prime unbeaten versions of Cotto, Pre-cheat Margarito, and Paul Williams. Faked retirement to avoid a rematch with Oscar. and Hatton (who got cheated by Floyd’s personal Referee Joe Cortez more than Floyd)… And the biggest tactic… Use NO evidence to accuse Pacman of cheating, and demand total nonsense to kill the fight again and again. Yeah… Floyd REALLY quacks like a duck!

Pacman is close 2 done….he’s ageing quickly, getting hit more and more each fight. His ring age is far more than his age on paper… Manny has 2-3 fights left max, as does Marquez and Floyd won’t b far behind them. Rios is not world class Manny should smoke him. After that he may b in trouble.

Sredmond is nuts… Pacquiao will give Floyd a good fight when they finally get it on.. Pacquiao is a very smart and aggressive ATG fighter.. He has tons of skills.. He simply ran into a perfect punch after fighting 54 rounds with one of the greatest fighters of all time.. I think Floyd will beat Pacquiao — but it will possibly be one of the greatest fights of all time. It is a fight both men want, and that has been brewing for 5 years… It will be explosive. It will be spectacular. The world’s eyes will be glued to the action … the night the fight takes place in Macau.

If Pacquiao beats Rios impressively he’ll get Floyd next year … in China.

I simply don’t accept the concept that anything concerning Top Rank and Golden Boy is never going to happen. No REAL boxing fan should blindly accept that political B.S. That means that pro-boxing has become 100% dysfunctional and real fans should NEVER accept that.

As far as I’m concerned, your just another FMJ nuthuggin’ whigger from Ohio who’s part of the SREDMOND/Supreme Clown/PEEJ/Proud African posse. Consider yourself dismissed, MFer. Floyd MUST be willing to negotiate with Top Rank. just as Top Rank must be willing to negotiate with The Money Team and Golden Boy.

Tachyon Pac was always willing to test he just wanted a cuttoff date because he felt his loss to Morales was due to having blood drawn close to fight night. Judah, Corley, Oscar and Cotto all lefties all landed well on Floyd. You Floyd fans are in denial because its odvious that despite the fact that Floyd can beat Pac he’s just to big of a risk. Pac is in his head and has his heart.

Posted October 6, 2013 10:39 pm

@ SRedmond: In their last fight Pacquiao out-landed Marquez, in total punches, 37% to 21%, he oulanded Juan in jabs 24% to 11%, and in power punches a whopping, 46% to 27%… Those are Pacquiao’s highest percentages of all four fights! So how in Hell was Manny performing at his worst or looking washed up?

“Unless Cotto wants to take on the winner of Marytirosyan/Andrade or fight Carlos Molina for the IBF title, he’l have to fight Sergio Martinez if he wants to fight on HBO.”

I’d love to see Cotto take the title from Molina. I’d also think Cotto would beat Martinez at this point in time but I need to see Martinez train and spar first before I’m firm on that.

Posted October 6, 2013 9:28 pm

Its just foolish to say Pac has little chance against Floyd when Floyd has never fought someone with the tools Pac has. With Pacs hand/footspeed and sudden sharp movements out of the southpaw stance he’s gonna nail Floyd. Floyd passed up 100 mil that says it all.

SREDMOND: Who said, quote- “Pacquiaos performances against Marquez have Gotten WORSE… A lot of people thought he lost the 3rd fight then he was knocked COLD by a close to 40 year old version of JMM… Pacs a GREAT fighter but he presents little threat to Mayweather”

WHAT?!! As I said previously… In their last fight Pacman was his most dominant of ALL the four fights! To include the KO round. He was on his way to a clear UD!

And funny how it took hiring a PROVEN Cheater named Heredia and huge muscles for Marquez to even knock Manny down for the first time.

Posted October 6, 2013 8:31 pm 


logic

Cotto was like a boxer,slugger & pressure fighter all-in-one against Rodriguez. Although against Trout he didn’t seem to want to mix it up as much.Although Trout didnt seem to want to mix it up with Rodriguez,so who the hell knows what’s going on with that?

Floyd was able to fight Canelo because he wasn’t getting hit much – the few times he was hit he was hurt (like his arm was hurting after the fight). But Cotto is hittable so he risks getting annihilated against Canelo. But not against Floyd who doesnt hit as hard. However Cotto had the skills and stamina to actually hit Floyd. There it is.

No, Pacquiao has never tested positive like Roy and Floyd. Do you even have a brain?

Floyd’s high boxing IQ told him to avoid Pacquioao like the plague. And to be fair to him he did.

Posted October 6, 2013 6:30 pm 


Thunder

If he presented little threat Floyd wouldn’t have refused to fight him unless he underwent additional testing. Do you even have a brain?

You any good at math?

If so, then add up all of Pacquiao’s previous opponents who refused to fight him unless he took the test and tell me what the number is.

The number of course is a zero. Floyd is terrified of losing his zero, that’s why he wanted nothing to do with Pacquiao is why he is so averse to fighting legitimate threats when their threat is still legitimate.

Add up the number of great fighters he fought in their prime too.

What’s the answer? I’ll wait. I’ve been waiting for years for him to fight one but I know he never will. Because he’s scared of losing his zero. We’ve just gone full circle again. All the way back to zero again.

Posted October 6, 2013 6:28 pm 


Tomato Can Stan

Racemond – I beg to differ. The fourth fight was Pac’s most dominate effort yet against his arch rival. And you don’t have a low ring IQ against the likes of Cotto, Mosley, Hatton and de la Hoya, whom Pac dispatched in more devastating fashion than Mayweather.

Posted October 6, 2013 6:22 pm

Pacquiao CANT fight Marquez or anyone like Floyd, he’s NOT Floyd his Ring IQ is not on that level nor his defense… Pacquiaos performances against Marquez have Gotten WORSE… A lot of people thought he lost the 3rd fight then he was knocked COLD by a close to 40 year old version of JMM… Pacs a GREAT fighter but he presents little threat to Mayweather….

Marquez knocked PAC on his rear HARD in round 3, PAC mans PUNY lead was of no consequence ask his wife if she was reading the scorecards while he laid there almost dead… Of course Floyd was NOT letting Marquez counter him, he’s too damn good and fast… Was he supposed to?

Floyd is a genius. He has an extremely high ring IQ, right? I think he’s far better qualified to assess how a fight between Pacquiao and him would go down than you are. He didn’t want that fight for a reason. He never wanted it. He never wanted it because he knew something you don’t. That he would’ve gotten beat. That’s why he was the only fighter in the world who refused to fight Pacquiao unless he underwent additional testing. The irony is that he demanded Pacquiao undergo additional testing but he’s the only one of them who has ever tested positive.

@SRedmond: LOL!!! Are you serious? Marquez was outscored by a third or more. in nearly every round of the last fight… Including the Knock down and KO rounds. And Floyd only beat Marquez because Floyd refused to ever give him a chance to counter… If Pac fought Marquez like Floyd… He’d dominate too… And he still dominated, even though unlike Floyd who just pot-shoted Marquez, Manny gives him a chance to score shots.

Compubox stats would never save the Great Pacquiao against Mayweather he could not even overwhelm Marquez with his “vaunted offense” JMM took his measure and clipped him during MANY of those bursts during the 3rd and 4th bouts culminating in a devastating KO…. Marquez is an incredible technician yet he does NOT have Floyd’s speed or skill he was swinging at air against Mayweather, put that together with Floyd’s defense and 5inch reach PAC mans an eassssssyyyyyyy night that you would be boring us to tears discussing refs, etc.. PAC man loves to discuss how “Marquez is difficult and a counterpuncher” meanwhile Mayweathers the BEST catch and return man in boxing…Pacquiaos not stopping 147 pounders so how’s he gonna win? Outbox Mayweather?? HAHAHAHAHAHA I love Manny but lets see him impress against Brandon Rios for gods sake…Like ALL Mayweather opponents Pacs volume will dwindle when he starts sucking down those HARD right hand counters..

Posted October 6, 2013 5:42 pm 


Tomato Can Stan

I see no signs of Pac being a “has-been.” He clearly won the Bradley fight and was winning the Marquez bout until that lucky shot. He losses were due to bad misfortune, not any decline in skill. He looked sensational against Marquez, especially with the improved head movement. If these two losses do not psychologically effect his confidence, then Pac has got some great fights left.

Posted October 6, 2013 5:41 pm

@ B-Red: Well alrighty then… Tell ole Floyd to cut the obvious smokescreens and give Pacman the “washed up, has-been” (Floyd’s words) a fight straight up without all the BS demands then… Why all the antic for a has-been? Because as Manny himself said, directed at Floyd, on ESPN, not long ago… “If I am a ‘has-been’, then Floyd should have and easy fight… Right?”… Yeah Floyd, and B-Red… RIGHT?!!… LOL!!!

Posted October 6, 2013 5:19 pm 


Old Coot

@ SREDMOND: HAAAH!!! Floyd don’t hit hard enough to keep me off him… Much less a two gunned juggernaut like Pacquiao… Plus, at the most, Floyd throws like 40 to 50 punches a round to Manny’ 80 to 100 or more… Which given Floyd’s defense would admittedly cause Manny’s output to drop to 60 to 80… So even if Floyd made Manny miss 30 shots, which is unlikely, given Manny’s aggression, agility, and hand and foot speed. Whereas, Manny would still land 20 or more out of say, 70 punches. Because not even Floyd can make someone like Manny miss that much when throwing that many, mostly, power shots. And besides, with Manny’s improved head and upper body movement even if Floyd’s accuracy lands him 15 out of 40… It still won’t be enough against Manny… Not to mention, Manny’s landed power shots would almost certainly do much more damage than even Cotto did! Which was more than Floyd is used to.

Posted October 6, 2013 5:11 pm

@ Tomato Can Stan: Yep… If you ask me, I thought Cortez helped Floyd defeat Hatton. And as for the first Castillo VS Mayweather fight… I was at the Grand that night, back when I was still a MAYWEATHER fan, because he was still a real fighter then… And even I thought Floyd lost to Castillo… So did nearly everyone in attendance and watching on HBO too!

Old Coot

@ Tomato Can Stan: Yeah. Well watch the Hatton/Mayweather fight again. Hatton with his great foot speed was on Floyd’s ASS!! He ran and walked Floyd down & mauled him in the corners… That’s what you gotta do against Floyd… Now had Referee Joe Cortez stopped CONSTANTLY interfering with Hatton’s mauling style, then letting Floyd get away with the CONSTANT holding, I think Hatton would have worn Floyd down with his body shots. Finally all Cortez’ needless interference that helped Floyd, frustrated & mentally drained Hatton, that is when he got fatigued, and Floyd accumulated a KO! Plus, having that cut in the 3rd round didn’t help the rest of the fight either. Bottom line Floyd chooses slow-footed fighters because he has trouble with foot speed and aggression! Especially against southpaws like Pacquiao.

Earlier I agreed with Murderman, that Canelo would wear Cotto down… But then I went re-visited some of their notable fights and I now think that because Cotto has much quicker feet and head movement than Canelo, it would actually be a really interesting fight… And while it’s true that if Canelo catches Cotto good, it could be light-out! Cotto would have to nix any notion of brawling with Canelo and instead rely on his great in and out footwork to avoid Canelo’s power and wear Canelo down with this new Roach trained, “body snatcher” technique… And as for those who said 3G is a real challenge for Floyd… I think that like Canelo 3G has a punchers shot at perhaps KO’ing Floyd. But his head movement & feet are just too slow. Truly testing Floyd, requires the types of opponents he avoids like the plague.. Those being the all around speedy, high volume punchers such as Broner, Martinez, & especially Pacquiao!… Even, perhaps a rematch with Ortiz… (Because let’s get real… Floyd was so defensive against Larry Merchant, because Floyd and everybody honest, knew damned well that he won by sucker punch. No matter if Ortiz WAS careless or not). Or perhaps a rematch with this new, improved, Roach-trained version of “Cotto the Body Snatcher”… But of course we know Floyd won’t pick ANY of em!

You had 2 ATG’s basically abandon technique and start throwing bombs without regard… At the end of the 3 rounds Hearns was flattened and needed to be carried out of the ring like someone’s new bride… There’s no question as to who dominated what unless you are crazy this was supposed to be a full length contest and Hagler ended it in 3 despite some excellent action…Now you’re just arguing because you like the taste of the back of my hand across your mouth… Silly Man

You don’t need to rewrite history in order to elevate him… Fact is when the bouts were relevant Tommy was stopped by Ray and Hagler (QUICK by Marvin) leads during a 3 rounder where you get knocked out are almost as laughable as leads after 6 rounds where you get bludgeoned and stopped (Wlad vs Brewster)

Expect Cotto to go through with the Sergio Martinez fight during the first quarter of 2014 as planned.

If he wants to compete at 154 pounds, he’ll have to work with Golden Boy Promotions and fight on Showtime. GBP has a near monopoly at 154.

Unless Cotto wants to take on the winner of Marytirosyan/Andrade or fight Carlos Molina for the IBF title, he’l have to fight Sergio Martinez if he wants to fight on HBO.

@ Tomato Can Stan: I agree that while Marquez WAS waiting to counter as usual, he didn’t plan a KO… Mostly he just got lucky that his punch landed with such a perfect storm of circumstances… i.e. to a large degree, his new muscle mass; setting down on that punch; and more than anything, as you said, Pacquiao’s overzealousness, and aggressive foot speed, that actually gave his lunging forward so much momentum, til it likely nearly doubled the connect power of Marquez’ punch, etc… (In fact, Marquez was lucky to not have hurt his hand)… But All that made the KO happen… Another thing… When you view the KO footage… You can see that Marquez was as surprised as anyone watching… He is standing over Pacquiao with his mouth gaped open in shocked surprise at what he had just accomplished. But of course he’ll say he planned it.

Cotto aint gonna risk Molina or Lara nor leaving Arum/HBO unless its a rematch with Floyd. He probably wont risk it with the winner of Martirosyan/Andrade either and definitely not GGG so that leaves Martinez as the logical pick. Beating Martinez could also possibly attract a Mayweather rematch

How do you earn a rematch with Floyd after losing to Trout and then beating a B level fighter? He has more work to do than that. Floyd clearly beat him in their fight. There really is no need for a rematch.

Roach has study Mayweather for many years and almost had a victory with Oscar. I think any fighter coach by Roach Will make an a good fight against Floyd plus Cotto knows now Floyd speed and timing having 12 rounds against him.

Cotto looked great last night, but the reality is that Delvin is a D level fighter that was scared. This fight was picked for a reason. Cotto is a class one guy and a boxing legend, but he gets destroyed if eh fights Canelo, Trout, Floyd or Lara. This fight was very misleading, but Cotto fans will think he’s back. I wish him well, but he best retire.

Posted October 6, 2013 1:24 pm

HIDALGO, good post, but ultimately Cotto is an undersized and ringowrn 154lbr. steamrolling Rodriguez only renewed his creds as a legitimate contender. it doesn’t prove that he’s better than Trout nor does it improve his chances v. Canelo. in fact, he’s in the same competitive bracket as Lara, Molina, et. al. he certainly hasn’t proven that he’s any better. Cotto remains vulnerable and we won’t know precisely what he has left until he steps Up, again.

Old Coot – Marquez acts as though he secretly planned that shot. He got lucky due to Pac’s recklessness. If he really planned it, then surely Marquez would of landed that shot in their last three fights. It was because, as you said, due to Pac’s overzealousness and Marquez beefing up. Pac was ahead on points in all four fights, had more knock downs, but is still criticized for those victories because of Marquez’s counterpunching. So Pac goes in there more aggressive this time, to KO him and leave no doubt and not leave it in the judges hands, now he is criticized for being KOed. The guy can’t win.

As for Bradley VS Marquez… Win or lose, Bradley must re-match with Pacquiao! See if he can REALLY earn a win. Because reviewing their fight again… You can clearly tell that Pacman never took Bradley seriously and underestimated him… So Pacman did what he THOUGHT, was enough to win, And that cost him. I’ll betcha the rematch would be MUCH different! Because you’d see the Pacquiao who was beating the crap out of Marquez in their fourth fight, that is until he got carelessly KO’d from running headlong into Marquez new muscle punch!

Te tumbo, WTF is Carlos Molina on Miguel Cotto’s playing field? Lara had trouble with Molina and Cotto will walk over Molina.

Lara would have a hard time dealing with the type of pressure Miguel applies. And that pressure is backed up by a very high skill level, mucho ring savvy, and plenty of power. The only way Lara can beat Cotto is to fight from a distance and hunt and peck his way to a points win. Lara will be on his bicycle for most of the fight too–Lara loves his bicycle. Lara ain’t Mayweather. Miguel will find and hurt him.

Cotto would stop Rosado dead in his tracks–and/or just beat him to a pulp, and Miguel would probably beat Angulo as well by knocking his dog collar down his throat.

The only one in this group of fighters with enough technical skills to beat Cotto–or any kind of skills for that matter, is Lara and I sincerely don’t think Lara could handle Cotto’s storm.

By the way, yes, Rodriguez could be considered to be a ‘B’ level fighter. But while Trout earned only a sloppy UD win over Delvin, Cotto hammered him down in short time.

Moral of the story: Never underestimate Miguel Cotto.

“Tommy Hearns came up short against Leonard and Hagler (both knocked him out)” – Hearns had Hagler badly hurt and was winning the Leonard match until he got KOed. He was the only man ever to put Duran to sleep and I think he deserved the the nod in the rematch with Leonard.

The versions of Margo and Pacquiao that got Cotto were gonna be trouble for any fighter NOT named Floyd Mayweather… Miguel Cotto is a cruel puncher certainly at 147, and Margarito’ chin that night was like nothing I’ve seen since Tex Cobb against Holmes or a Rocky Movies, short of plastic explosives he was not being stopped… Pacquiao was throwing 8 shots with speed and power while eating 3 he was a tornado at that point… Miguel Cotto has NEVER lost to a SCRUB, or even a guy who was not a Champion or ATG… Tommy Hearns came up short against Leonard and Hagler (both knocked him out) we know Cottos not the top fighter in the sport but he’s certainly an upper tier World Class fighter who on a given night can deliver elite level performances…. Guys like GGG, Broner or Canelo have a FRACTION (GGG none) of Cottos experience against World class foes… He was 30-0 or something like that before Margo took that 0….

You’ve got to hand it to Cotto really. The dude has got balls ten times the size of Floyd’s. He fought Pacquiao when Floyd was running scared of him. Margarito when Floyd was quaking in his boots at the thought of getting in a ring with the Mexican. He fought Mosley when he still had something left. All the Floydstans will try and convince you that Floyd actually wanted those fights and it was the all those other dudes are too blame for the fights never happening back then, but that’s a crock of piss. They keep tripping over themselves all the time. In one breath they’ll you how everybody is desperate to to be part of the Floyd sweepstakes, but they whistle a completely different tune with another when it suits their agenda. It wasn’t Floyd’s fault. Everybody was ducking the ducker.

Cotto fought Pacquiao. Floyd, Margarito, Mosley but Floyd would never take a string of fights against killers like that in a billion years. Not the versions Cotto fought.

Pacquiao fought prime Barrera twice, prime Morales 3 times, and Marquez 4 times That craps on anything Floyd has ever done. He would’ve ducked the piss out of those dudes in their primes if the were the same weight as him. History proves that. All these fighters can fight greats in the primes except Floyd, who has even admitted he cherrypicks cans and then uses the media to build them up like they’re good. He’s even admitted he’s more concerned with getting hurt than he is in taking on his biggest threat. Ducks Pacquiao for years, retires for nearly 2 years when the division he fights in is at it’s best in years, and takes performance enhancing drugs.

Don’t be fools!! Canelo doesn’t need to go anywhere or beat anyone to fight Miguel Cotto. Boxing is about money. And Canelo sells, period. Thats the only reason Floyd fought him. His boxing skiils are very limited. But he is very strong. I always said Miguel really doesn’t belong at 154lbs. And after a few weeks training even Roach agreed with me. Size will be his only disadvantage against Canelo. Cotto @ 100% should win. But it could also be a very long night for Cotto.

Plus there is Angulo and if some how Kirkland can make a small come back that is even more money.

When are you dim-witted 20-watt retards finally going to wake up and realize that it’s NOT cheating as long as you can make weight at the official weight-ins??? Taking PEDs, using plaster wraps and lightened gloves is cheating. BIG difference.

FMJ needs to man-up and fight Lara and 3G at 154lbs. Cotto needs to man up and finally agree to fight Canelo at Jr. MW. He DUCKED Canelo and chose to fight Trout instead.

154 is not a poor division. Heck is it a very good division and there is money to be made at that division. There is much more money at 154 than there is at 160

Rodriguez did look at the ref when he stopped and was saying he was good. It was a quick stoppage. Like I said there is a reason for the 10 count. He could of started counting and once he got to 8 asked if he could continue, if not then stop the fight. But jumping in right away should not be how it goes. That is like a foot ball player running with the ball and then pulls a muscle and he slows down or stops running. If he does not go out of bounds then he is going to get tackled. You don’t see the ref jumping in and saying oh he is hurt don’t tackle him. Rodriguez got knocked down, and with the very first punch landed, yes it was a hard punch that landed, he jumped right in. I still say that is a bad stoppage. These guys are fighters and they know what they signed up for. And like I said he could of counted to 8 and then asked if he was alright.

Canelo does not worth a fight with Cotto, he is the bigger fraud in recent boxing history. 154 is a poor division. A shame Cotto will not fight anymore at 147. Garcia and Mathysse moving at 147, pacman, bradley, marquez and khan and we dont need anymore.

Posted October 6, 2013 10:29 am 


PEEJ

I also think it was a bad stoppage. The ref jumped in as soon as the first punch landed. He should get the 10 count. That is why it is there. If he didn’t think he could continue then he could of stopped it at 8. But to jump in as soon as he was hit was terrible. And yeah Rodriguez has never beat an A level fighter and Cotto is an elite fighter. I figured it to go a few more rounds but figured as long as Cotto had some gas in the tank he would win by stoppage.

Posted October 6, 2013 10:02 am 


PEEJ

Floyd already beat Cotto clearly and there really is no need for a rematch. Just because he looked great agains Rodriguez, someone who has never been able to beat an A level opponent does not get you a fight with Floyd. Also Floyd would not be getting hit with those same punches Rodriguez got him by. And to say Floyd is running from someone he clearly beat his ridiculous.

Posted October 6, 2013 9:39 am

I was very happy to see the passion from Cotto. I feel he needs to move back to 147. He is not built for 154.

If he stays at 154 he needs a few more confident fights like tonight then go for the bigger pay days.

Posted October 6, 2013 9:33 am 


el chapo

I thought it was a bad stoppage, but the outcome would have been worse if Delvin had continued. Regardless, Cotto beat up a good fighter and got the warm-up he needed to move up to fry the bigger fish. Canelo hype train was derailed by Mayweather, and would be put in the scrap yard by Cotto. Heck, Canelo looked so amateurish against Mayweather, Cotto shouldn’t even bother wasting his time. On the other hand, he would get paid handsomely for the boxing lesson – if it were to happen – considering how Mexicans have flocked to this kid like zombies in a Micheal Jackson video. Martinez would be an interesting match-up, but Cott’o’s aggressiveness and intelligence should give him the edge.

Floyd Lieweather

I agree. Weight makes a big difference. Especially when it comes to punchers, brawlers fighting each other where one uses their size, weight, power size to overpower a smaller opponent. But Lieweather is a defensive specialist and his speed is his bread and butter so it’s not really an issue with him. You can’t hit what you can’t see. He cherry-picks bigger slower bums who are too slow to hit him and then he pretends like he was at a big disadvantage when really he wasn’t.

Posted October 6, 2013 8:49 am

If you’re opponent is faster and bigger than you, then you got problems.

If they got a longer reach too, not good.

Posted October 6, 2013 8:41 am 


Floyd Lieweather

Lieweather’s bread and butter is his speed. He has that advantage over bigger, heavier opponents. So all the size disparity stuff is way overblown. Remember how he got battered in sparring by the smaller, quicker Paul Spadaforda? That was embarrassing. Spadaforda boxed his ears off.

The bottom line is that is DOENS”T MATTER what a fighter weights on fight nights. The ONLY thing that matters is whether or not a fighter can make at the official weigh-ins. I can tell than you guys never boxed or wrestled, otherwise you wouldn’t constantly complain about cutting weight and re-hydrating. It’s a MAJOR part of boxing, MMA and wrestling, so if you don’t like it….it’s time for you to find a new sport.

Let me recommend basketball, tennis and figure skating.

Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Lion King of Beat Street)

All REAL boxing fans recognize that 3g is now the best MW in the world; they also recognize that he’s a small MW who weighs less on Fight Nights than most Jr. MWs.

SREDMOND/Supreme Clown refuses to recognize these obvious facts because he’s NOT a REAL boxing fan. He, along with PEEJ, are the biggest FMJ fan-boyz in the world.

Team GGG would’ve have bothered to call out all the top Champions at 154lbs for the past two years, if they couldn’t make weight. Of course this skinny Russian can make weight, but he the most avoided boxer in the world for a reason. I’d bet everything I own he can even make a 151lbs catch-weight — since FMJ refuses to defend all his Jr. MW titles at 154lbs. WTF??? If he refuses to fight at 154lbs, then he should be STRIPPED of those titles ASAP. Fight Lara at 154lbs like a real champion while 3G’s reputation and following are blowing up!

Posted October 6, 2013 7:55 am

Cotto is a World Class boxer and he might lose to the younger, bigger Alvarez but the bout will be competitive… Cotto got leather on Mayweather whereas Canelo hit air all night long… It’s a fight that’s likely gonna happen there is good $$$$ involved…

Posted October 6, 2013 7:44 am 


SREDMOND

No GGG is a beltholder with a PADDED resume at 160, NO “everyone does NOT know he can make 154″ because he’s NEVER DONE it as a pro fighter…What we do ACTUALLY KNOW is that Mayweather EASILY makes 147 pounds because he has a belt there, and because 42 of his 45 fights were 147 or below, because he never hit 154 even on the day of the fight… It’s Academic, Golovkin will probably NEVER fight at 154 and it certainly will NOT be against Floyd Mayweather…. Sooner or later he’s gonna have to stop chasing a soon to be 37 year old WW and do something big at 160… Mayweathers NOT gonna solve his financial problems

3G is best MW in the world, hands down. And everyone who knows anything about boxing knows it. Plus he holds two major titles at 160lsn, so that’s what he’d done to earn a short at Duckweather.

Plus, 3G is small MW and everyone knows it. He can easily make weight at 154lb, but cherry-picker with NEVER fight him in a hundred years. Just like he ducked PacMan and Martinez for years. 3G simply presents too much danger and risk and all FMJ cares about is protecting his precious “O” while making as much money as possible.

44-1 is damn good record, but he can NEVER get rid of that ugly Loss to Castillo.

Posted October 6, 2013 7:32 am 


Hey, That’s my Bike!!!

Really Squared Circle please tell me you are not calling Cotto a ducker. I agree that Cotto vs Canelo would make big $$$$ and I currently give Cotto the edge in favouritism. That would be a great fight and PPV worthy even without a belt. But besides how Pacman looks against Rios, you are grasping at straws for his other opposition at 147lb. GGG is a MW and the others are nobodies. Broner barely beat Malignaggi and Bradley has lost (not officially) his last two fights. Just trying to keep a neutral perspective on things.

Good job junior you clearly picked up my sarcasm. Let me spell it out for you boy. Until Cotto can beat any contender (which I doubt) he is just going to be a notch on others belts. The point is that he should at least face some no names that are in the ring’s top ten much like Geale and Barker are before anyone should take him seriously again.

Posted October 6, 2013 6:41 am

There is no doubt that this was something of a mismatch but all the same this reminded me why Cotto is my favourite fighter, I really admire the performances against Mosley and the second Margarito fight where Cotto showed some sublime boxing skills but its this wrecking ball hooker that we all love. This guy really is elite and has only ever been really clearly beaten by FMJ and Manny, I too would love to see him vs Trout or Canelo.

Old Coot,

Go back and re-watch Bradley Pacquioa and count the punches yourself you will find that punch stat did a great dishonor to Bradley. That is if you really count the punches. Bradley out worked Pacquioa the whole fight, Pacquioa started trying to win the ends of the rounds to make an impression. it didnt work and he lost, the judges dont rely on punch stat to judge the fight.

I will give Manny the Bradley fight or a draw at beat C.J. Ross is a joke as a judge, this is the same woman who scored Mayweather even with Canelo. But Mannys last 3 outings seemed average he was not the wrecking ball of the past. Michael Moore was trained by Roach, and he told everyone what Manny was on, every since the P.E.D. question came up he has been looking average at best no K.O. Power he stood in there and traded with Margerarito like its wasnt nothing a bigger guy with more power and took it, Anyone knows the steroids make you string like that , He couldnt K.O. feather punching Bradley then Marquez dropped him twice, Then he turned down 30 million to fight Floyd because he is scared of needles what a crock of b.s. the dude has tatoos anyone who wont take a drug test is using simple as that . Manny could have made more in one fight than in ten,

You have to sometimes admire the enduring hope Mayweather haters have for a Floyd conqueror(however pathetic it appears to us boxing fans). The poor fools search for hope in almost every fight that happens between 168lbs- 135lbs- Golovkin, martinez, garcia, matthysse etc.. now Cotto. Somehow beating an “espn Friday night fights” b level fighter in rodriguez, somehow catapaults him into a challenger in these Floyd haters eyes[ sad but that is what they have been reduced to]. THis is after they just watched Floyd put on a show against a bigger, faster, & heavier handed fighter in Canelo- who i might add, would put Cotto to sleep in six rounds if he ever dares to try and walk him down!!!!! I wonder if its because in Roach, he is working with the most overratted trainer in boxing history. A guy that failed to do anything for Amir Khan(khan fired him)or Chavez jr. who should have lost his last fight and has failed to improve over the years & lets not even talk about Jorge Linares( De la hoya even publicly said linares needed a new trainer ).
All in all, Today changes NOTHING except that Cotto gets to fight one more time- and that doesnt mean a big fight, just another fight!!!!

@ Anonymous: Manny out-landed Bradley 253-159 in total punches & had a 190-108 edge in power shots landed. Manny out-landed Bradley in 10 of 12 rounds.

Looking deeper at the stats & the judges scores, Pacquiao had a 22-8 edge in total punches landed in round 5, yet Ross & Ford gave that round to Bradley? Pacquaio had a 27-11 edge in total punches landed in round 7, yet ALL 3 judges gave that round to Bradley? WOW!!

And in Marquez VS Pacquiao IV, right up to the KO in round 6, Manny was winning more rounds more convincingly at the same stage in that fight, than he had in any of the previous 3 fights. Even WITH the knockdown by Marquez in round 3.

@ Murderman: Now we agree… Floyd does have slight issues with southpaws. One reason is that his famous ‘shoulder-roll’ is Taylored to righties, leaving his right torso and to a lessor degree his head vulnerable to speedy lefts. However, I’m not so certain about Devon. Like Floyd he hates getting hit, and thus is not very adept at attacking coming forward, –like Marquez, rather more at countering, like Floyd.

Umm… Like Pacman and Bradley, Marquez is Mr. Super Heart… He doesn’t care about getting “busted up”. Not by a “dome” or otherwise… He KO’d Pacman with a broken, clogged nose. If Bradley carelessly comes in with the head he’ll get counter rocked as was the case against Provodnikov.

@ Murderman: Floyd won’t have a choice… He hates getting hit and when someone with heart, speed and power aggresses him, he is rather easily driven to the ropes… Hatton did it (Until referee Cortez kept interfering) Oscar did it (until he stopped jabbing due to his usual fatigue issues) and Cotto did it, due to sheer determination, foot and relative handspeed and power.

@ Crushed Tomato Can: Of course not… That is why Floyd picked Marquez to start with… Then demanded he bulk up 10 lbs of rip in less than 6 weeks, because Floyd knew that gaining muscle in such a short time would slow him down alot and he’s not have time to properly adjust his speed to the muscle. As was the case… That and the fact that Marquez has no clue how to attack… ONLY COUNTER… Still Floyd was worried about him, which is why he cheated on the contracted weight and refused to weigh-in on fight night as a gentleman would… During the match, Floyd only became comfy in the ring when he saw that Marquez was indeed as slow as he’d hoped he’d be and as I already said, had no clue how to attack like say a Pacquiao certainly would attack Floyd… So as it turned out, all was left for Floyd to do was to wait for Marquez to TRY to attack him (mainly when the fans booed because Floyd wouldn’t). And that is the same thing that Marquez does to Pacquiao when he DOES attack.

PE, I understand your point. I just don’t think little Cotto has enough clout or pull to bring Alvarez to any weight agreement. Which is why I see Canelo breaking down Cotto if they fight at 154 or above.

@ old coot – ever heard of bob arum? When cotto was undefeated arum wouldnt make the fight. Cotto briefly left arum they fight. Top rank and gbp beef is real. Gbp and top rank fighter never fight! I believe marquéz left top rank briefly when he fought floyd. Like floyd or not u got to give him props as the best fighter in our generation and im almost 40.

@pe – u did see the 1st money vs cotto right? What makes u think cotto can beat floyd in a rematch? Also i think canelo will be too much for cotto at 154. If they were fighting at 147 then id pick cotto. Cotto is just too small and not enough power to be the elite at 154, like trout, may, canelo, lara. He belong at 147 where he was a monster!

PE we have enough catch weight fights. There”s no need for a Cotto/Alvarez catch weight fight, is there? And at 154 that would be a great fight, but it ain’t happening unless something changes soon. I’d pick Canelo to break down Cotto at 154, though.

I know who Delvin Rodriguez is. He’s a good fighter, but he’s a B level guy at best. Guess what if he was more than that he would have already proved that point.

@ murderman: Shows what you know… The Floyd Marquez fight was a conjob for rubes… Floyd would always whoop Marquez… Because he is a counter puncher like Floyd who doesn’t know how to attack like say Pacquiao (which as you recall was the only real reason he KO’d Pacman) who was winning by a large margin, when he came forward for the kill, right into Marquez’ waiting right counter, whereas Floyd would always run from Marquez and counter HIM in the ring. BORING!!

LMAO, Old Kook… Well good luck with that. In the mean time don’t forget both guys already lost to Mayweather. And if their lucky enough to get another shot at Mayweather hopefully we’ll see good fights. But as it stands, Mayweather already proved he can beat both of em, pretty easy too. Cotto won no more than 4 rounds, and fans like you want to give him another chance….

Murderman, styles make a fight. Marquez gets paid to fight not predict fight outcomes. If I’m correct Pac was beating him until he landed that KO punch. He can speak for his style versus Pac, which he was headed for a loss had the punch not landed. But he has no clue how Pac’s style would effect Floyd and vice versa.

Posted October 6, 2013 12:57 am 


Cognitor

That was impressive win for Cotto. I hope you people know that Delvyn Rodriguez is no bum. Delvyn knows how to fight and that was serious risk that Cotto took tonight. Cotto had to stop Delvyn early. Freddy Roach is a master of creating aggressive punchers. This version of Cotto with all the passion rejuvenated would be favored in a Trout rematch. For all the Mayweather lovers and haters, I would be the first to admit that Mayweather and Wladimir Clinchko use what works in boxing and have succeeded to win so I won’t criticize them here. They don’t create excitement but if it works in boxing , why change it? We can all just change the channel. At least Cotto’s three round destruction saved me from enduring almost several hours of boring boxing prior to Cotto’s fight.

Cotto, moved to the softer side, he’s fighting Top Rank fighters now. GBP, has the better 154 pounders right now.

Old Coot, it’s long time that you recognize that the effen networks and promoters are not letting fights take place across networks and promotional teams. The only way it’ll happen is if Cotto leaves top rank, and the fight happens on Showtime… So, do you think Cotto is going to leave Top Rank, move over to Showtime, and retain Roach in order to make a fight with Mayweather?????? I would love to see it, I’m sure Showtime would love to broadcast it,,, but is such a fight even close to being possible?

@ Leaky Tomato Can: Floyd won’t want to lay on the ropes… But he won’t have a choice… As he barely did last time… I suspect in the rematch Cotto would chase Floyd down even better. Which is what you must do to whoop Floyd, and exactly why he won’t fight The Pacman!!

Posted October 6, 2013 12:29 am

Murderman, if in fact Cotto weighed 168 as Mayweather claims he did when they fought, and if he comes into the ring at 168 against Canelo (if that fight happens), it won’t be a terrible mismatch.

Looked a bit too easy for Cotto. He was too powerful for Rodriguez and we knew that. The stoppage looked premature but if he made the 10 with so much time left,ultimately he would have been on the canvas again within 30secs and possibly seriously hurt. Cotto needs another,more testing fight before considering any elite fighters.

Old Kook, see’s a knock out, and he gets beside himself and thinks that means Mayweather will lay against the ropes and let Cotto tee off on him like that. Mayweather’s coming off a 3 lopsided wins, (including the Cotto fight), but he’s going already making excuses to avoid Cotto… Come on Man!!!!

Posted October 6, 2013 12:23 am

Lets not go over board. Rodríguez was picked for a reason. To make cotto look good. Cotto is too small for canelo. No need for rematch w floyd. Fight will go the same way floyd by ud. Still dont think cotto is big enough for any real 154lber. 147 is calling his name!

I don’t agree, he is the major champ, why not show his fights? That’s why boxing is going down hill. If they pick and choose when it comes to the heavyweight champ it will be far less interesting. If they don’t show the champ, you may as well throw the whole heavyweight division out with him.

Why do they make it seem like Cotto is washed up after losing two fights in a row? It’s not like he fought Wilder type of opponents! He fought Trout who is a very good boxer and lost and FMJ (he actually gave Floyd the most trouble of any fight I saw, Floyd was bloody). No shame in losing to those guys, his career is ok.

I think WK, is a very good fighter. But today he had to set the record for most push downs in a fight that were scored knock downs. On top of that he was getting away with leaning down on top of Povetkin durning every exchange, and didn’t get one warning for it. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that either.. That was an ugly fight to say the least.

Well Crawford shut out but he really missed an opportunity today to win some fans with a KO. It was a easy sparring session and he has given away any surprise factor he might have had by showing every future opponent he can fight half decent as a southpaw as opposed to his usual orthodox stance.
