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 ***** 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 ***** 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.
