Re: Fighters that flourished in the face of adversity . . . . . . .
Cotto was never meant to be a fighter with immense stamina, so to see him roaring back at torres, corley, and other instances where he was hurt, really showed how a cornered jackal is always more dangerous.
I appreciate Juan Manuel Lopez too, it hurts him more than helps. For example, I dont think Ive ever seen the man clinch in my life. Its truly astonishing. But with those big, thick legs, he manages to fight round after round on queer street. And with that power, a wounded JML is as dangerous as anybody. I rarely see a guy be able to fight 5+ godamn rounds on queer street the entire time. The mtagwa fight gives me chills to this day. Heart & ego make up 99% of that guy.
Unfortinately if he doesnt smarten up soon and get a new trainer, or atleast learn to clinch when hes hurt. His career will be a short one.
