Miguel Cotto fought everyone in their prime and he was clean the entire time. He deserves more!

    Miguel Cotto is the most dangerous man from the 2000 era. He was a great boxer with excellent skill and power and he never popped for or was suspected of cheating in any part of his career. He fought some of the top guys at 140 ,147, and 154 in their primes and always gave them hell (except Trout).

    Cotto vs Judah
    Judah was still the man even though Tszyu clipped him at 140 Zab went on to be undisputed at 147 against Spinks and drop Mayweather clean, even though the ref ruled it as a slip. Cotto went in an made the ref stop the fight against a game Judah. That was the last clean reputable fighter Cotto would ever face at the top.


    Cotto vs Mosley
    Mosley went on be apart of the BALCO scandal. Was Mosley clean in this fight?


    Cotto vs Margarito
    Antonio wore loaded wraps. No need to argue the **** was tested it was not gauze. Cotto still boxed his head in until those dry wall wraps caught up to him.


    Cotto vs Pacquiao
    This is the fight that really cemented Pacquiao as a ATG but also marked him as a steroid cheat. Cotto was putting a beating on Pac-Man until those "Ariza Shakes" kicked in.


    Other fights include:
    Mayweather who was probably clean for Cotto but not Pacquiao. C'mon, now that the boxing/racial/Floyd this/Pac that war is over and everyone is in their right minds, Mayweather had an entire medical staff show up to his house to administer salt water?! He could have just drank 2 Gatorades and gotten the same re-hydration.

    Canelo Alvarez who went on blame his PED issues on cow meat but was probably clean for Cotto.

    After Trout, Cotto wasn't even half the fighter he use to be. The only fight he showed up for was Canelo anyway. He drained Martinez and Geale and for great reasons ducked GGG. Oscar tried to sell him out to Errol Spence so Spence could get a Canelo fight, but Cotto went on to be beaten by weak ass Sadam Ali.
    Cotto was truly against all the odds his entire career.

    Total diva, and weirdo. Can't stand him, he preyed upon the weak and vulnerable, yet showed quit every time the match starting slipping away from him, he should have several more losses on his ledger. Easily one of the most overrated boxers of his generation.

    Yep, very good on top fighter, one or two performances where I thought he was the real deal, but seen quit in him a few times, or if it got tough he wilted. Hatton just after Tszyu would've stopped him at 140 when it was spoken about

    Hatton demolishes him at 140 , Trinidad at 147 and Oscar at 154.

    His nut shots to Judah still hurt now.

    People hate Miguel because they don't get to motorboat Melissa's glorious ordeñadoras.

    Glorious thick little goddess, but plastic surgery has her face looking like she's preparing to play Michael Jackson in a biopic.

    LOLWHUT.

    Cotto popped Pac with some sweet jabs and a 3 punch combo after Pac invited him in for free shots. And then there was a left hook in round 3. Other than that, Pac's speed and angles tore Cotto up. Pac hit him with everything and the kitchen sink and couldn't get him out of there until Bayless stopped the fight for dramatic effect . Had Pac been juiced, Cotto would have died.

    Floyd's been cheating his entire career. It's just that we only know of the 3 fights where shady things went down — 2 fights where he had a lower T/E ratio than Bob Arum and of course, IV-Gate.

    If they were that elite, he'd have performed better against actual elites. He will like his sills, always be second tier or a level or 2 below genuine elites.
