    He got his eye socket fractured by a Margarito uppercut in sparring;




    Rashad himself believes that Margarito hit him with plaster in their session. Or he believed it in 2010, I don't know if he still believes it now.

    But Steve Cunningham buys the Tyson Fury Glovegate theory, and believes himself a victim of it.

    You have to take it with a pinch of salt. Guys will seize on a story that might soothe their pride in some way (not all guys, but some).

    It's like that book goon, the guy couldn't even skate, telling stories of having to take steroids just to make it. When they asked other players about it they responded that he probably just sucked and needed the roids just cause he had no talent. Goons in hockey are a real thing, but that book was made to profit the individual who wrote it, not really a story based on what goes on in the league.

    George's larouque was like the Lennox Lewis' of the NHL! Honorable mention goes to ty domie, Bob probert. Scrappy mfers. I guess Floyd falls into the category of ducked fights then, due to margarito.

    What I know about hockey couldn't fill a postage stamp, the boxing parallel goes way over my head. :lol:

    Margarito is the only guy Floyd ever really swerved, in my book;

    Believe it or not, I used to be a fan of Melon Head Miguel too when he was campaigning down at 140-147

    To any Puerto Rican -- Cotto never even existed compared to Trinidad. Tito takes a backseat only to Gomez and Benitez in PR boxing.

    Tito. I asked my PR friends and almost everybody loved him, not so with Cotto.
    Some points:
    Tito never learned English and Cotto did. Many PR like that. I don't agree with this one. You should learn the language of the area you mostly fight in. The Klitschko's speak German.
    Almost nobody likes a primadonna. In all countries. Point Tito.
    Tito never lost to a Mexican. PR has a rivalry Mexico.
    Tito was a Knockout artist. Cotto was not.
    Lastly, I thought Tito looked invincible not Cotto.
    Until Hopkins KO'ed him (Tito was a heavy favorite in that fight) many people were talking about him fighting and beating a prime Roy Jones.
    Tito owns the hearts of PR boxing fans. Not Cotto.

    I agree with half your statement. Went Tito was in trouble he did go low. Tito vs Vargas.
    But I believed he had true power, even at middleweight. Hopkins has a outstanding chin and I don't think he even hit Wright cleanly with a good powershot. Also Wright had a good chin.
    He didn't have the power at light-heavy through.

    Yes, you are easily swayed by rumors. That's how easily dumb people are fooled.

    Fooled by rumors??? Hell no!! Just facts, who did Margarito beat or stop since getting caught??? As for Tito he didn't even come close in hurting Hopkins, Wright and never again had a elite win, not mention Tito needed like 1000 hooks to stop blown up Mayorga , when DLH easliy dropped him in the very first round and had a easier time with Mayorga .
