. . . and that’s the point. the ONLY reason Cotto remains in the fight-game is to collect some final paydays. Canelo would be the biggest payday of his career. he’s a giant P*SS if he doesn’t give his fanboys the finger and confirms a mega-PPV bout v. Canelo. in fact, he can make it up to them by defeating Quintana afterwards. after all, a win v. a B-level opponent seems to be all it takes to win them back. they’re THAT desperate.

It’s me, Public Ernie

Lara, GGG, Quillin, Rosado, and Delvin Rodriguez is the competitive bracket that Cotto is “campaigning” in.. Canelo convincingly defeated the man who boxed the crap out of Cotto, which places him at the top of the 154lb food chain.. compared to Canelo, Cotto is walking roadkill..

Boxing can be a tough business if you’re a dynamite puncher…

Guys like Golovkin, Kovalev, and Wilder are going to have a hard time getting appropriate fights. Rigondeaux will as well.

What do you do if appropriate matchups won’t fight you??? You fight inappropriate opponents. You can only fight the willing.

Why would Cotto fight GGG when he’s NOT the “Real MW” Champ and he brings FARRRRRRR less $$$$$$$ to the table than Sergio Martinez??? It makes no BOXING or Business sense, if Cotto beat Martinez that’s a huge boost for his resume due to his accomplishments and possible future HOF induction (Sergio) GGG is a nobody who has NOT even defeated a Quillin level fighter as of yet…Cotto is NOT cut out for 160 if he’s gonna go there he should make it worth his while in terms of glory and $$$$$$….

it’s gone beyond funny to pathetic the way Cotto’s fanboys are desperately trying to squash any talk about a future matchup v. Canelo, but what if Canelo challenges anyway? then what? does Cotto run and hide with his chubby assistant under the same blanket? in any case, i think Martinez KTFO of Cotto as well. just less brutally than Canelo would have. or maybe he still will(?). unfortunately, i think the memory of Trout’s convincing win over Cotto combined with Canelo’s decisive defeat of Trout will remain the determining factor in Cotto deciding to avoid Canelo, which is fine for some people. his fans will simply have to be reminded of and acknowledge this Fact before touting Cotto’s presumed “greatness”. neither Chavez, DLH, or Marquez ever avoided their primary rivals, but that’s just one standard of greatness, which Cotto can either live up to, or not.

EZ, I don’t thing anyone is talking about Canelo vs May rematch so how you end up going there..?? I guess you gotta do what you gotta do to further steer Cotto away from fighting Canelo..You so called knowledgeable fight fans make me laugh, dumbing yourselves down over fandom..Lol!

MAD You’re correct, the gro$$ of Floyd vs Canelo BLEW AWAY the proceeds of Floyd vs Cotto AND.. Floyd BLEW AWAY Canelo, something he didn’t do to Cotto. Who would really pay to see ANOTHER Floyd vs Canelo BLOW OUT?? hmmm…. Well, the answer to that one is easy, ONLY YOU & ABBOTT!! (p.s. Did you do your homework??) Paz to Mad Science!!

Looks like Cotto vs Martinez is in the works for the eve of the PR parade..this outta make alot of the Cotto fanatics happy not having to witness their hero getting beat up at the hands of a mexican fighter even if it means more money for him..even an injured prone Martinez beats up Cotto at 160lbs but I guess Miguel’s fans are fine with that as long as it ain’t Canelo who was involved in the highest grossing fight wich blew the Cotto/May PPV out the water with Kid Cinnamon fighting in the co-feature..

TITOPA What’s up with Victor “Billy Goat” Ortiz?? The last we heard of him he was saying, “My yaw ish bro” while actually attempting to say “My jaw is broke”. LOL! After a good tuneup of his own Team Canelo might consider him a possible future opponent. Being a medium sized WELTERWEIGHT should make him a VERY ACCEPTABLE rival for Canelo. The weight for such an affair will probably be set at about 156-160Lbs, suiting Canelo just fine. MAKE IT HAPPEN!! LOL!!

Depends which Cotto turns up vs Alvarez..a razor sharp Cotto would win. If he’s a little off his game Alvarez would win

Titopa- so Canelo needs to fight a B level fighter at 154lbs to see how he does before getting in the ring with the upper echelon of the division..that’s Cotto right there, he brings a name and B level ability at 154lbs..it makes all the sense in the world for all parties involved don’t you think..?? Let’s keep it real, the Mayweather rematch is not happening and Cotto will make more money fighting Canelo instead of Martinez..everyone knows including yourself that Martinez basically has one foot out the door and is only holding the belt hostage for one last huge payday..so what does Miguel really stand to gain fighting Martinez other than a false sense of accomplishment if he wins wich I seriously doubt..

Posted October 7, 2013 8:31 pm

Canelo needs to fight a B level fighter at 154lbs to see how he fairs, cause he showed us he ain’t ready for the upper echelon of the 154lb division.

TARK – I’m HUGE GGG fan, but c’mon, as much as we’d LOVE for Cotto or Martinez to fight him, it AIN’T happening….NONE of the ‘big names’ are eager to fight GGG, and for good reason. Canelo too wouldn’t dare step in the ring with him….he’s too much of a rik with hardly ANY reward. Personally, I’d love to see Cotto tangle with GGG, but if you were Cotto, who would you pick to fight? The lineal CHAMP who’s looked like he’s slowed down but can still generate a huge fight, or the WBA titlist who isn’t well known but continues to slaughter everyone he touches? If I were Cotto, I’d pick Martinez, boxing is also a business.

Posted October 7, 2013 6:04 pm

Cotto is getting this shot at Martinez because he’s a much easier mark than Grennady Golovkin… Martinez knows that if Floyd and Trout can route Cotto He should be able to stop him, even at 39 years of age.

Posted October 7, 2013 5:40 pm 


Titopa

Y’all can think Canelo’s “great” or the best at 154 if want to, but remember, his BIGGEST fight was a humiliating loss, a fight in which he was thoroughly outclassed and made to look like a sparring partner…don’t forget that. Canelo WAS the best at 154, he’s now back to where he was before he fought a 147lb Mathew Hatton, as where Cotto is on his way to ANOTHER championship.

The Mad Scientist – At least Cotto’s willing to fight at 160, what about Canelo? Oh yeah, he’s at 154lb and “willing” to fight anyone from 147 down LOL

Posted October 7, 2013 5:10 pm 


Titopa

The Mad Scientist – He stands to gain nothing?? UM. Did you forget that Martinez is STILL the Middleweight champion? So, Cotto will WIN a championship in ANOTHER division. It’s been 3 days since Cotto’s win and he’s already lining up his next fight in a higher division, Where’s Canelo? I’m sure he’s still licking his wound and pondering which Jr. Welter he can attack next to boost his confidence after being humiliated.

Folks, I honestly don’t expect Oscar to pit Canelo in with ANY dangerous opponent just yet. He didn’t do it much before he got nearly shutout by Floyd and won’t do it now. Don’t expect him to fight Lara, Quillin, GGG… or anybody of their caliber. Another loss will greatly harm market power. That exactly what Arum did with Oscar after his loss to Tito. King tried desperately to make the rematch but Arum (not Oscar) outright refused!! After the Reid fight King attempted again. Publicly Arum said “yes” but..nada! After Trinidad stopped Fernando Vargas, it was HIGHLY profitable time for ALL involved for the rematch. An informal meeting was set up, Arum never arrived. Years later Arum himself admitted that another loss to Trinidad at the time would’ve nearly destroyed Oscar’s “golden” image. Oscar surely learned a thing or two during his tenure with The Bobfather, Cotto too. Anyway, Canelo will get a tune-up (maybe vs Delvin Rodriguez LOL) and then they’ll decide what weight division Canelo will settle into. He WILL be champion once more, he’s too valuable a commodity for $uliaman or any org not to “fix it” that way. As for Cotto, I kind’a expect to see him fighting Martinez. DiBella will jump at the opportunity. Canelo vs Martinez?? No, too dangerous for now. Just like the ill-fated Tito vs Oscar II, they won’t risk back-to-back loses. Peace to all!!

MAD SCIENTIST, even they know what p*ssys they sound like trying to justify Cotto avoiding Canelo and it’s not because they don’t think he’s something special. in fact, they Know that Canelo’s the Man at 154lbs who DOMINATED the contender that beat the s**t out of their beloved “Junito”. my disdain for these dumbs**ts will be evident and enduring. they are solidly among the 90% boxing-ignorant imbeciles that contaminate this site and I suspect that they all came out of Public Enema’s sloppy b**thole, e.g., “Ernie” no longer knows what to do with himself since I exposed him as Public Douche . . .

If you are referring to Cotto facing Martinez don’t kid yourself..every knowledgeable fight fan knows that if Sergio was looking like the man he was 2,3 years ago we wouldn’t be having this nonsense conversation..Cotto stands to gain nothing beating Martinez at this stage so he might as well cash in against Canelo..boxing is a business first and you kids need to start acting like you know.

TITOPA, stop embarrassing yourself. Floyd has no intention of “defending” that belt for anything less than another record-breaking payday that Cotto can’t come near generating. besides, Mayweather’s already slapped Cotto around withOut his A-game. he would simply box Cotto silly in a rematch and . . . (zzzzzzzzz). NObody’s paying for that crap and definitely not in record numbers, i.e., makes no money, makes no sense, doesn’t register on “Money’s” radar. get real and stop making excuses for Cotto. it smells like P*ssy.

te tumbo – Don’t be mad that a door of opportunity opened for Cotto at 160 and Canelo’s left with NOTHING. Let Canelo tangle with the rest at 154 since he obviously isn’t hungry enough to do what Cotto’s willing to do (fight at 160).

Canelo Rule$ 154lbs. there’s no way around it. ALL roads lead through Canelo. Cotto may P*ssyfoot his way around Canelo but it will be duly noted in his ring-legacy: “P*ssy avoided primary rival” it will read next to his profile under the HOF category of “Puto-Rican fighters”. the Cotto Bandwagon hasn’t even completed a single lap and Cotto is already preparing to kneel-down before the opening bell of the most logical matchup(?!). his fans must be “Boricua-proud” of Cotto for trying to get something without paying for it.

At this point, it would be a a privilege for Canelo to fight Cotto, cause Cotto’s been on a big stage several times and he’s won more than he’s lost….and against the VERY best boxing had to offer…Canelo got his chance and failed miserably. HUGE difference there…Cotto’s put in the work, it’s time for him to move UP for a bigger/better challenge that will ONLY add to his stellar career.

B-level opponents. Trout demonstrated what Cotto can expect from a legitimate 154lbr. what’s Cotto gonna do? fight a bigger opponent for less?!? . . . P*SSSEEE . . . (lol).

Cotto’s been malingering at 154lbs long enough. it was only the ass-kicking administered by Trout that qualified Trout to become Canelo’s next victim during which he was DOMINATED no less than Guerrero was by Mayweather. not a SINGLE category that ANY Canelo-Hater can claim on behalf of Trout (lol). the same Trout that had his way v. Cotto. after which everyone was counting the days until his retirement. Cotto made a mistake by loitering in Canelo’s division. he will now have to pay the tax. he better keep his kneepads handy.

Posted October 7, 2013 3:34 pm 


te tumbo

Canelo will remain focused on dragging Cotto into a boxing ring to face him in HIS weight-class of 154lbs, which will also be the weight limit. meanwhile, simultaneously hilarious and repulsive the way Cotto’s desperate little fanboys are desperately trying to protect him from Canelo (lol). we smell the fear seeping out of their collective snatch. the anxiety that really every 154lb contender poses a legitimate threat to Cotto’s illusory resurgence v. a B-level opponent who didn’t even fight back. Mayweather has already had his way with Cotto and he’s not applying for smaller paydays. Floyd would only defeat Cotto worse in a rematch and everyone knows it. Canelo will DEMOLISH Cotto at 154lbs and EVERYbody would like to see that . . . except for the clutch of mother hens desperately trying to herd Cotto back into the chicken-coop.

“as long as Canelo..” does whatever the F’k he wants. Cotto’s squatting on Canelo’s turf and he’ll either face Canelo on Canelo’s terms or skulk and hide like a p***yfooting island-pygmy. 154lbs is the weight and that’s the ONLY “concession” he’ll get from Canelo. he’s got NO balls or honor if he tries to redefine his own 154lb legitimacy according to his fear of legitimate 154lbrs and Canelo is #1 among them All. Cotto better Step-Up or his legacy will be that he’s ONLY a PR “legend” NOT ATG like Chavez Sr. who fought them ALL and brutalized every territorial “latino” he ever met in a boxing ring.

Te gumbo no need to get all racial up in here. Facts are accurate Canelo is afraid to fight in his own division. Canelo wants respect he needs to fight triple G, Froch, Ward. Any of those fighters would mean something if he won. Coming in 20 pounds heavier than your oppent is no different than using peds for an advantage.

Canelo’s been WANTing Cotto and now Cotto’s impressive win over a B-level opponent has made him marketable once again. he poses less risk than Lara or Molina but a bigger payday thanks to his desperate fanbase who imagine him to be some sort of 154lb threat (LoL). i Endorse their Fantasy. whatever it takes to set the stage for aNother Rican legend to be Brutally, and Mercilessly DEMOLISHED and Retired by a Mexican fighter. if my fantasy comes true, this “showdown” will take place in no other than Cagas, Puelto Lico, which will be added to the list along with San Juan, Bayamon, Guaynabo, and Isla Verde as other sites of previous slaughters of “cash cows” by Mexican butchers.

“they will never demand that Canelo move up and challenge a real dangerous Challenger..” I’M demanding that Cotto face Canelo or that Canelo face Cotto or whatever the f’k that is contrary to Cotto’s fanboys NOT wanting to mention Canelo in the same breath as Cotto, which is understandable. after all, Canelo applied his own version of “shock and awe” to beat the f’k out of the dude who beat the s**t out of Cotto. Btw, Canelo also beat the s**t out of Cotto’s little bro too. Wtf does it take for these island-pygmies to finally stand up for themselves? does Canelo have to sock-up Cotto’s blanket-buddy now too, or Wtf?!? it’s the most natural and lucrative matchup at 154lbs and Canelo’s been wanting and waiting for it. if Cotto wants to go out in a blaze of glory and revive his home territory’s boxing profile, even if only as a courageous victim, a PPV-bout v. Canelo will compensate him for his troubles. otherwise, it would be a damn Shame and Disgraceful to think that Cotto would rather kneel-down even before the opening bell(?!) . . . que verguenza!

Tachyon – Although I agree…it’s not JUST weight and NO skills, Canelo certainly has skills, but his “power” is due to fighting guys who simply can’t withstand it, guys who are much smaller and easier to hit, that’s what makes him look “Great”. Against guys his own size, he has looked less than stellar.

Public Enemy good post Oscar is playing the weight game trying to give Canelo an advantage it’s what Oscar did last half of his career no skills just ballon up 20 pounds heavier and expect to win on fight night. Canelo would lose to any one in his on weight division so we want see him against triple G etch. Oscar will try to setup PAC vs Canelo if he can. As for Mayweather he does not like 154 but due to his skills he can fight there. Boxing needs to change the rules back to weigh in on fight night. this would even the field create better matchups and keep posers like Canelo in the correct weight division.

Posted October 7, 2013 11:45 am

Public Enemy – Nah. Golden Boy learned that Canelo must fight guys 1-2 divisions below him to look big and strong…..they will once again resort to fooling Canelo’s “fans” into thinking their man is GREAT by matching him with guys who are WAY too small. I’ve read ridiculous things like “Canelo should fight Danny Garcia to prove what he’s made of”…LMAO! Sounds about right, 140lber to get beat up by a guy weighing 170lbs.

Here’s a novel idea! How about Canelo just fighting the guys at his own weight division that he’s been avoiding for almost 2 years like Cuban Lara? Rosado? how’bout that?

Why is it that you never see the Canelo Kool Aid Drinking Chihuahuas talk about Canelo moving up to take on a real Challenger?? they’re always quick to demand another fighter move up to take on bigger Challenger like Cotto taking on Martinez or Floyd taking on GGG but they will never demand that Canelo move up and challenge a real dangerous Challenger.. But hey, would you expect anything different from them? LOL what cowardly losers..

Te Tumbo- Circling the wagons? It’s Golden Boy who’s going to circle the wagons around Canelo and not let him face a top guy for the next three years, until Quillin and GGG move out of the middleweight division. Cotto wanted to fight Canelo when he fought Trout, it was DLH who didn’t want to make the fight. Canelo’s next fight is probably going to be someone like Robert Guerrero, while Cotto is shooting for Martinez.

Posted October 7, 2013 11:06 am

Peej, Cotto has said he will fight Martinez at 160 which is fine with me Cotto is a SMALL Jr MW by height, reach etc but he is dense… His goal should be to come in at the limit and box at the top of his ability… Its risky because Martinez can hit at 160 but its a lucrative eye catching bout for Miguel… I always wish him well!

Posted October 7, 2013 10:55 am 


PEEJ

Looks like Cotto will probably be fighting Martinez for his Championship Belt. Martinez team said they would be willing to meet him at a catch weight of 158. Which of course backs up what I have been saying. He cannot make 154. He is only willing to come down to 158. If he was able to make 154, he should agree to come down to 155 so the belt will still be on the line and that would show that he could make it that low to get that lottery pay day.

Posted October 7, 2013 10:50 am

ES, your contention about Mayweather is RIDICULOUS…. Floyd took on TWO Champions at 154 pounds one of them the UNIFIED Champ at the weight who already defeated Austin Trout…How did Austin Trout ACTUALLY get on the map? He did it by beating Miguel Cotto who Floyd Mayweather had ALREADY defeated before him so trying to sell Mayweather as avoiding threats at that weight is ridiculous he faced the MOST decorated boxers in the division NOT guys “You or some other dude THINK could be somebody”…. Cotto is a 3 weight Champ and HOFER Mayweather came up in weight to fight him and Miguel acquitted himself well on a relative basis and still came up short… Mayweather is pushing 37 and you guys are STILL making excuses about how easy Canelo and Cotto are on paper… Well the 60 boxers they knocked out between them would disagree including Delvin Rodriguez who went a FULL 12 with Austin Trout….

Cotto doesn’t have to fight at 154 to please anyone anymore than Floyd doesn’t have to. Although, I give much more credit to Cotto for taking fights he knows are not easy and fights he knows he may not win, for example, against Trout. Floyd has never had this type of mentality or fortitude that makes great champions. There is still another IBF title holder in Molina that Cotto could fight but at this stage in his career, I think he may be chasing the money sort of what Floyd has been doing all of his career……high reward….low risk. he could fight for the vacant WBO 154lb strap or, Molina for the IBF 154lbs. Floyd’s mandatory for this WBA 154lb strap is Lara….I think Floyd’s testicles have strunk at the thought of fighting someone who is formidable and will also not bring as much money to the table as someone from PR or Mex. Besides, it’s about money, not legacy for Floyd. Opponents for this two 154lbs straps will not be anyone currently and rightfully in line to fight for them. He will defend them against someone from 160 in a catchweight fight…..gee, what a surprise…..or defend his 147lb title against some unworthy champion that appears strong and appeals to the latino community thereby making it seem Floyd is doing some sort of impossible pysical feat but in reality…..is just another scam fight. Thurman, has one of the minor titles but a minor fighter he is definitely not however, this is one fighter Floyd WILL NOT face..he also will not face Kell Brooks….much the same way Bradley has avoided them. A bit of advice to Floyd……RETIRE!!

BARLOW With all due respects but Cotto isn’t interested in being ‘good paydays’ for the likes of Brook, Guerrero, Alexander… He’s looking the the BEST $$$ he can make for himself. And.. NO, NO, NO, he cant make an optimum & healthy 147Lbs anymore. Believe me, he CAN’T and WON’T!! We’ve already seen the last of a welter Cotto a long time ago. I frequently speak with members of his team at pro and amateur fight cards here on the Island and they’ve assured me enough times in the past to know that he’ll NEVER fight at welter again.

Posted October 7, 2013 8:08 am 


Boxing Barlow

Cotto’s biggest problem in my opinion is his size. He was strong and natural at light welter and welterweight. But at light middle against bigger opponents he looks to small to me. I think against the likes of GGG, Alvarez and maybe even Martinez, Cotto starts on a disadvantage through being too small for the weight and those guys have the skills that even if Cotto is a superior boxer his skills are not enough to make up for the disadvantage. For me Cotto looses all day long to Martinez, GGG and Alvarez due to his size and looses to Mayweather due to skills. Now if look at guys who are currently fighting at welter moving up to a catch weight between welter and light middle, the likes of Bradley, Alexander, Marquez, Guerro and Brook I think they look far more competative fights for Cotto, and Cotto’s name ensures big pay days for all of those fighters.

You are right! It is a hard pill to swallow but that is the state of affairs in boxing nowadays. Thurman seems to be a good fighter but I am afraid that he might not get a shot because he is deemed dangerous. Rigo is another victim of the corruption that goes on in boxing. The P4P ranking is a made of fantasy that is not always a depiction of reality.

DIMELO Let’s not forget that Oscar owns part of the Ring Magazine so naturally his fighters will appear, be hyped up, receive UN-earned ranking positions, Canelo being one. True, there are other very good non-GBP Mexican fighters that belong that are being snubbed/denied their just ranking positions. It’s just another way of Oscar OVER-hyping his fighters and trying to force/”convince” other fighters and managers to join his promo group. That’s just the the game goes these days. I occasionally work with a couple of fighters signed with Lou Dibella, another from Gary Shaw’s group and one from GBP, you’d be surprised the BS that they sell to the fans and get away with. “Sudden” cancellations, “visa problems”, fake injuries, fights that “fell through” that NEVER were actually going to take place to begin with, purposely OVER-pricing their fighters….

wow, lots of people commenting on Cotto’s Victory. I would like to address the comments regarding Canelo, Mexican fighters and Mexican-American fighters. He is famous because he is white that is the only thing I can conclude with such amount of fame. I just finished looking at the ring magazine’s P4P list and they had Broner and Canelo on the list. Do they deserve to be on the list with the type of opposition they had faced? I can go down a list of Mexican fighters that should be in the P4P list; yet, they are nohwere to be found. Take a look at the 126 weight category: scary division. What about 140? So the boxing P4P ranking is not very acurate sometimes times. There are people out of the P4P that have fought better opponents than Broner and Canelo and yet has not received the accolades that these two hypes have received.

Canelo is very uncomfortable at 154… He’s definitely outgrown the division. The only problem at 160 is Grennady Golovkin… But Martinez doesn’t want to fight GGG either … so Martinez-Alvarez is a natural.

He’s also had stamina issues that he’s somewhat addressed BUT so does Canelo. Now, keeping it real, if they are to meet it better be SOONER than later. Cotto’s clock is ticking. At the same time, besides Floyd, has Canelo fought anyone with Miguel’s credentials?? Obviously the answer is a resounding NO! If you’re expecting Cotto to go down like Alfonso Gomez or Kermit “The Frog” Cintron… you’re sadly mistaken. Honestly, I’m FOR THIS FIGHT!!

Cotto’s suspect chin? Say what? How long has Cotto been fighting? How long will it take you to know whether or not Cotto has a fighter’s chin? Cotto has been fighting a long time. By now, everyone should know whether or not he has a glass chin. Will you be “suspecting” his chin all the way to retirement?

Huge cotto fan but keep it real yall! Rodríguez was cherry picked for a reason! No way in hell cotto beats a top guy at 154. Not floyd, not trout, not canelo! Just too short, no reach, not enough power! Now at 147 he is a monster! Can beat anyone not name floyd! Canelo will stop him late rd tko. Canelo was outclassed by the best fighter on the planet so dont get it twisted! Canelo is still the best at 154! The victory over trout proved it!

Cotto and Canelo is the logical next big event fight. Canelo will restore some of the fame he lost after losing badly to Floyd, and Cotto can retire with a huge legacy ending payday, rather he wins or loses, and I give him a good chance to win style wise.

Mad Scientist, well if Cotto wants to make that one lat pay day then he should fight Canelo. This would generate more money than any other match up. He would take a beating though. Canelo destroys him. He won’t have to take a knee because Canelo knock him out or the referee stops the beating. Cotto ha taken a lot of punishment throughout his career, and it’s all going to add up eventually. I hope he doesn’t end up like the great Wilfred Benitez. Cotto has nothing left to prove. And trust me, once he retires, he’s going to end up mumbling and stumbling like all the great courageous fighters that took all those punches to please his fans.

Yeah that’s just ridiculous Cotto took a knee because he was being hit with illegal weapons no one in the sport is tougher or has more heart than Cotto. I was worried about him fighting Canelo but after seeing Canelos inability to cut the ring off and pressure Cotto would give Canelo a boxing lesson. After seeing Floyd control Canelo with the jab Cotto has the best jab in the sport hed rip Canelo with it all night . Canelo doesn’t have the footwork to box the way he does and guys like Cotto, Lara and Martinez would school him. Canelos a good fighter but won’t ever be great hes to limited for elite fighters. They better keep matching Canelo up with mid ranked wws.

Mad scientist- Canelo being part of the highest grossing fight in history only means the whole world saw him lose every minute of every round against older, smaller Floyd. There’s no way Canelo makes more money than Cotto if they fight.

MAD SCIENCE Thanks, you made my point. like you said, “IF Martinez is his old self”. Sergio has be showing his age lately he’s coming from a rather long layoff after looking pretty beatable vs relatively unknown but worthy Martin Murray. Judging from that particular fight I don’t think Sergio will win 11 out of 12 rounds from Cotto like he did vs Chavez.

Miguel Cotto did a great job lat night and nothing less was expected becaue Delvin Rodriguez was the selected opponent that was tailor made for him. Delvin was scared and wanted nothing to do with the legend. We now have a lot of people thinking Miguel Cotto is back and will beat one of the champion or top contenders. Promoter can ride Miguel’s name all the way to the bank, but the reality is that his bet days have gone by, and he shouldn’t be fighting Canelo, Floyd, GGG, Trout or any other young top fighter. It’ only a matter of time before the promoters give him one last hurrah championship fight or a big time fight vs Canelo. Canelo would be in tough for 2-3 rounds and then he would destroy and stop Cotto. Canelo has too much for Cotto. This fight would end badly. Let Miguel retire gracefully before he takes a beating and is forced to retire. He’s a great fighter and human being. Miguel, don’t be fooled by the puppet they put in front of you last night. It’ time for you to hang em up champ.

Canelo have no business at the 154 div due to stamina problems, with the help of a nutritionist he should consider moving back to the 147 div and fight bigger name$$$$ like Bradley, Marquez, Thurman, Pacquiao, Rios, Alexander, Peterson, Khan, Ortiz, Guerrero, Garcia, Broner, Madiana and Mathhyes and then if Floyd is still around a rematch but after Canelo beats all of the above fighters mentioned….but his COCAINE ADDICTED promoter for some reason doesn’t see it that way and wants/Forcing Canelo to stamina problems at the 154 div.

Canelo doesn’t stand a chance against Cotto in the 154 div. maybe in the 147 div. but not 154, Canelo doesn’t have what it takes to handle so much weight but for some STUPID reason his COCAINE addicted promoter thinks otherwise.

I watced Cotto since the Olympics. I’m glad to see him back in the win column, but this fight didn’t really mean anything to me. DR was just a lifeless fighter who did nothing well except stand against the ropes and let Cotto knock him out. He offered absolutely no resistance. That being said, Miguel needed this fight just for the confidence boost. To be honest, I don’t know why Cotto still does it. I don’t think he’s broke and maybe he’s having fun as a promoter, but there just aren’t any good match-ups for him anymore. Cotto is one of my favorite fighters from this era, and while I wouldn’t mind seeing him ride into the sunset (He’s done soo much) As long as he’s happy still fighting then God Bless.

EDGAR I agree. It’ll be Cotto vs Martinez. If he fails.. well, the Canelo fight might still be there, depending on the circumstances. If he wins… Floyd II?? Or… he will be in the position to call the shots vs Canelo, who will have to concede more than demand.

Posted October 6, 2013 5:58 pm 


prideofvirginiabeach

Cotto can’t beat a guy at Alvarez’s level anymore. This looked as good as when Berto beat Hernandez for a reason. Delvin is a solid B-level fighter, but will never be good enough to win a title short of vieing for a vacant one against another undeserving guy. Martinez seems a viable alternative only because Martinez is becoming shot after a hard, exciting run that started with making Pavlik wear his own blood for a mask and really ended when JCC lucked out in the 12th round of their fight. He legitmately eked (barelly from what I saw) a win off of Murray, and could actually lose to the likes of a small middle as Cotto would be.

Cotto made a worthy opponent look like a twig. Which other top fighters operate like this? The Roach/Cotto combo will demolish both Sergio & Canelo. Has Canelo ever fought a tough guy his size? Watch that baby cry.

time to confirm a Canelo v.

Posted October 6, 2013 4:42 pm 


Papo

Soon after the fight, one poster stated that Cotto fought a bum, in other words, he shouldn’t be given any credit for the win. People that make such comments don’t understand the components of boxing. Most boxing fans, including me, appreciate a good back and forth hit and get hit fight, but those types of fights can take a lot from a fighter’s ability and confidence.

Cotto had lost two of his previous fights and needed this fight. Should he be given credit for his win? Most definitely…he knew another lost would have been devastating to his career and that despite his boxing experience, he needed help in getting back into the game. So he picked a no too dangerous fighter as his opponent, hired Roach as his trainer and work hard to ensure he was in top shape for his fight.

I don’t know is Roach is the right trainer for Cotto, but it sure appears that way. I’m sure Roach is a happy man today, as he needed this win…perhaps as much as Cotto. I have been critical of Roach before, but he certainly knew what he was talking about when he stated that Cotto needed to go back to be his old self.

A fight against Canelo would be great for Cotto, as well as boxing fans. However, from the standpoint of his career, I would choose Martinez for a few reasons: he’ll get Martinez at a low point of his (Sergio’s) career; the fight will sell; other than the fight, he doesn’t have much to lose and a lot to win. If he loses, it’ll be against a middleweight and can always get back to junior middleweight. But if he wins, and the odds are in his favor, he’ll be crowned the middleweight champion of the world…cementing his legacy as one of the best boxers ever. But he better hurry before Floyd decides to take on Maravilla and spoil Cotto’s chances of getting his 4th division championship belt.

Concerning Floyd, at this point, a rematch doesn’t really makes much sense…at least to me. Even after such spectacular win by Cotto, Floyd would still be in the driver seat dictating the terms of the rematch. If I were part of Cotto’s handlers, I would wait for Floyd to run out of options before proposing a rematch. Floyd may choose to fight the winner of Bradley-Marquez or take on Khan, but Cotto would bring better pay-per-view numbers.

I was way wrong with this one. I though Rodriguez with his height, length, and being a true Jr. middleweight (and Cotto being better at 147) would be problems for Cotto. But Cotto never let him get comfortable, or in any sort of rhythm. From the opening bell Rodriguez acted like a goldfish suddenly dropped into a bowl with a piranha. Well done, Miguel! Now how about going after that kid named Canelo?

Maybe Cotto can be the one to finally bridge the gap between Arum and Golden Boy and make the fight with Canelo and open up the doors for more good fights. I still think Canelo is too big for Cotto, but Cotto is certainly the better offensive fighter of the two, so it’s not a gimme for Canelo. Rodriguez was never in the same league as Cotto, but what Miguel showed yesterday is that he can still run over guys at the level below (take notice Crawford). I would go for Martinez if I were team Cotto. He always wanted a 4th belt.

I THINK COTTO WON 4 CLEAR ROUNDS AGAINST MAYWEATHER. WOULD LOVE TO SEE ANOTHER EVEN IF MAYWEATHER WINS AGAIN.

MARTINEZ WILL HABVE TO GO DOWN TO 156 NO MORE FOR COTTO TO HAVE A CHANCE SINCE HE IS EVEN SMALL FOR 154.

Posted October 6, 2013 2:55 pm

This Cotto reminded me of the Cotto that took care of Quintana back in 2006. Moving around beautifully, cutting the ring and quick reflexes. He looked great; in good shape, light on his feet and strong. Though I admit two weeks ago I said he should retire, he sure changed his mind with his performance; he still has plenty left in his tank.

I know someone here mentioned that he fought a bum; in other words, this fight was setup for Cotto to look good. I must agree Rodriguez resume is not even close to that of Cotto or other top 154 fighter, but it was the smart choice of opponent. Fighters like Cotto, who had fought many tough fights and, especially coming off two consecutive loses, need this type of opponent to climb back into better fights.

He, or his handlers, made the mistake of going for Trout after Cotto’s lost to Floyd. This time around they did the right thing. This fight will surely bring his confidence back, but more importantly, it provides a good idea of where he stands and the level of opponent he should be fighting next.

I would love to see him fighting Canelo next and must give Cotto the edge. Against Floyd, Canelo show, not just his lack of experience in the ring, but also he was too cautious, as if he wasn’t sure if he could take Floyd’s power. Cotto has much more power on his punches than Floyd and that will definitely be a factor. Canelo is accustomed to fight smaller fighters and none at Cotto’s level…other than Floyd and Trout. I would expect a very cautious Canelo trying to outbox Cotto and Cotto hurting Canelo to the body…love to see that fight can be made.

A Martinez would be a good fight for Cotto. Martinez has not fought since his no-too-great win against over Martin Murray and has been recuperating from his surgery. At his age and due to his long layoff from the ring, Martinez will be at the disadvantage. It’ll be a great fight and, at this point, I believe Cotto can beat Martinez.
