According to Freddy Roach, Miguel turned down 7.5 million bones to fight Manny.

Cotto is a fugging "G" for not bending over to Pac and Aarum. That proves that there was more than just money! CW, and may be OST testing are the real cause.

What else was there?

Ring size?
Glove Size?
Venue?

Comments?

Glad Cotto called his bluff(threatening to spoil his date). Made fools out of the Pac camp, and has them in all sorts of disarray.

Good on him. He's the third biggest star in boxing (in terms of draw and PPV attraction). He doesn't have to kill himself to make stupid weights or give into any other of Arum's demands.

Funny how roach never mentioned the catchweight, which was the deal breaker. lol

The REAL reason is that Cotto knows he can't beat Manny, all other excuses are BS

I wished Manny could be the champion his fans think he is.....instead of throwing money at Cotto to get an advantage why not just agree to fight at 154 Lbs.

Yeah, that's why he fought a much better fighter in his last fight.

Pacquiao just made $6 Million in his last fight....But ready to pay Cotto almost $8 Million?

Better 'technically' as a boxer but that's about it. Pac had him on his **** twice and went on to stop him.
