Default Re: Not sure how anyone could dislike Cotto...

Dont like the coined term "warrior" for a guy who doesnt train all that hard and has quit before in a fight and constantly backpeddles and sits on ropes to rest during the backpeddling. I feel he's another fighter who has Floyd to thank for being liked. Plus he was always green and really is the generic version of Oscar De La Hoya in not winning against his best competition. Also his skills are so overhyped for being the only conventional boxer who's left handed where usually you only see right handed fighters pretend to be southpaws. Also he was the prototype to what Manny is to Floyd and fell short since he could never beat the top guys he fought other than Shane Mosely. But the same **** about Floyd ducking Cotto is the same **** used for Manny now. More on this point just like Manny he was spoon fed Floyd's leftovers and given more credit when he beat them. Anyone who's watched boxing over 5 years knows exactly what I'm talking about.
