My understanding is that Cotto wanted the Pacquiao fight but this time at his weight of 154 lbs. He was'n willing to sacrifice and be possibly weakened trying to make weight, as possibly could have had some effect on him last time.
I certainly cannot blame Cotto for that.
I'd say being in Cotto's position is tough. I dont think he has that much time as a champion. He's lost to the elites, and there' is'nt much time for him to make real money.
I just cant knock a fighter who risks his health everytime they climb a ring.
More so than any other sport out there, I think fighters deserve as much money as they can get.
Having said that, it would have been nice of Cotto had he let Puerto Rico watch for free.
