Default the truth about Cotto and Trout and some other things.

Cotto is a very good fighter nothing more nothing less.
Cotto has no buisness at 154, if a guy like BHOP could make 160 while actuality being a lightheavy at 6'1' what is Cotto at 5'7" doing at 154.
Trout won but the scoring was ridiculous.
Trout will get his ass handed to him by Canelo.
Trout is a very good fighter nothing more nothing less.
The great thing about Cotto was his willingness to fight the best and his crowd pleasing style.
Cotto should have switched to southpaw during the fight his foot positioning vs the southpaw Trout had him out of position. Cotto has absoulutely no right hand, what else is new.
Dwyer hasnt said **** about Camacho since his death yet talked about Stewards upon his death, makes me wonder.
Cotto has always been missing that one gear that would have made him great. I believe its stamina and a right hand.
Cotto should retire.

Cotto can't fight any lower then 154 anymore dude. Well unless he's fighting Margarito then he can make 150 but other then that he can't even make 153 .

Why do you think he would skip a fight with Pac for a ton of $$$...cause he can't make 150. Well unless its Margarito .

Huh? Hopkins walked around within five pounds of the Middleweight limit even when he was in between training camps when he fought in that division.

my point being he kept his weight at that level through discipline and hard work while having the muscularity and frame of a light heavy and at 6'1" what the **** is miguels excuse for being at 154 at 5 7?

Hey, is stamina a under-rated skill for most boxers nowadays?

I agree in that Cotto would be a very different fighter if not for almost always letting up after 8/9 rounds.

I think Cotto's problem is that he kind of balloons up in weight when he's not fighting and then gets back in shape during his camps, and it looks like he's coming in with a net loss of muscle each time. He says he's more comfortable at 154, but I think it's all because he has to lose less weight during his camps. I think his natural weight class was probably 147, but I think he can still be a force at 154 if he dedicates himself to his strength and conditioning.

I won't think him any lesser of a man if he doesn't though, because he does have a family to take care of.

If you think Canelo is anything better than an even fight against Trout you don't know **** about boxing.

Default Re: the truth about Cotto and Trout and some other things.

i dont think its so much his stamina as much as his recuperative power, which has been ruined by the horrible beatings he has taken. after a few rds of geting hit, his body starts to numb out and he loses a split second of reaction time which starts to set him up to geting hit by punches that werent catching him earlier in the fight.

the dwyer thing dont make me wonder, i expect such from such.
