Default Re: Pick out interesting tune ups for Marquez and Pacquiao

Josesito is neither "a journeyman type fighter, or a fighter that is washed up to the point of being one really."
That's where our opinion differs- When I think of a tune-up, I think of someone like Pablo Cesar Cano or Likar Ramos

Cotto isn't a tuneup for anyone yet imo but from they way you put it, it sounds like he's going to be very soon
