Why?

Now the onus is on you to prove that you’re not a 1000x stupider than I am, because I’ve just completely ripped you and everything you said to pieces.

Posted August 23, 2014 1:22 pm 


Why?

SREDMOND

But of course I can debate my points with you, because that’s exactly what I’m trying to do.

You say I don’t make sense but none of your responses make any sense at all.

You say you’ve got me backed into a corner but it’s you who can’t answer any of the questions I asked you.

You say I cannot debate any of your points but again it’s you who’s running away from the debate because you have no answers.

You’re implying that I want you to stop voicing your opinion when I’m actually trying to get you to do the exact opposite.

How can you be cleverly than me when I’m the one who has got you backed into a corner and running in the opposite direction in fear?

I’m actually giving you the platform to prove that you’re cleverer than I am but you can’t because you know that it will inevitably end in failure.

If you were so clever it should be easy for you to answer those questions and prove me wrong, but again you can’t.

Nothing you say makes any sense. Even a person of average intelligence wouldn’t contradict themselves as much as you do.

An intelligent person shouldn’t need someone of less intelligence to explain their contradictions to them.

If you were smarter than me you would already be aware of them, which you should be because they were really obvious.

It wasn’t just a minor slip up, virtually everything you’ve said is completely contradictory

But you’re totally unaware of it.

That’s the mark of low intelligence.

You probably think not being able to answer questions is the mark of high debating ability too.

If what I’ve said is nonsense it should be easy for you to prove it.

Answering those questions will only prise open the gateway to debate and that’s the very thing you’re so afraid of doing.

Because you know that it will end in inevitable failure for you.

Te Tumbo, I certainly see Cotto as a “Blood and Guts type” he absorbed some hard beatings from Margo and Pac Man and did not succumb until the latter rounds… Against Margarito he simply could endure no more pounding from a fighter that was not going to be deterred that evening and had the size to continually trap and punish Cotto… To his credit he rematched a banged up Margo and got his version of revenge, against Clottey he fought with a BAD cut from a butt, he had a war of attrition against a still very good version of Shane Mosley and pulled it out, he was swallowing blood against Judah and stopped him… Cotto has fought the toughest schedule of WW fighters of any active boxer Mayweather, Pac Man, Margo, Mosley, Clottey, still good Judah in addition to wild cards like Trout and a bigger man like Martinez… He has never shied away from engagement (to his detriment) the guy is a warrior and top not professional who despite being written off has continued to move forward at the upper echelons of the sport… He will be an VERY good test for Canelo, both are not the fleetest of foot but both men can box better than folk think and can certainly hurt you if they land clean…

Joilet Jake, first of all I understand GGG wanting to cash in BUT his fans treat him like he will fight anyone anytime and that’s not exactly what I am seeing… The ONLY big noise he made at 168 was for Chavez Jr who does not have much in the way of chops in that division..Secondly Cotto and GGG are NOT the same level of boxer historically, Miguel is a 4 weight World Champion and sure fire HOF fighter who has taken on the best, and earned the right to cash in on the years of hardwork and sacrifice he has put into the sport fighting at the World Class Level, meanwhile Golovkin his 2 World Class opponents on his resume, Macklin and Geale and neither was a big time player…

Posted August 22, 2014 9:59 am 


Neil (pomy)

No way, Cotto fights GGG. He will be hoping to tempt Floyd up from welterweight. Don’t expect to see Cotto with any dangerous, legitimate middleweights. It will be blown-up welterweights and light middleweights for Cotto …. or a move back down to light middleweight to face Canelo.

Posted August 22, 2014 8:44 am 


Joliet Jake

Ward should have capitalized on his Irish ancestry because Irish fans really get behind their fighters. They would have elevated his status. He is nearly unbeatable at 168, but he should move up to his natural weight and fight at 175.

Posted August 22, 2014 6:33 am 


Joliet Jake

SREDMOND, you applaud Cotto for wanting the tilt With Canelo over GGG because of the money. Fair enough, but in the same post you criticize GGG for wanting to fight Chavez Jr. over Ward at 168. There is no money in the Ward fight. The Chavez or Froch fights are the ONLY PPV fights at 168. Nobody will pay to see Ward hug anybody to death!

What extremes are golden shower and their team going to go to ……To keep Saul fighting welterweights at 154 …When he comes in weighting at 168 …..? Just like Junior Chavez he was GIFTED the green belt …….And his last 15 fights…… Canelo is truly a kook …….

“Lee was coming off of an impressive KO win and matched Chavez Jr’s. size”

Andy Lee never looked impressive against anyone. He just lacks good strength, speed, punching power, or high grade skills.

And he must have given up 20 pounds to Chavez… He didn’t have a prayer in the world.

Zbik was no good and will never be heard from again.

The Rubio fight was a good win for Chavez. Rubio is a tough guy. But the fight showed Jr’s lack of basic skills: stance.. jab.. footwork.. and defense. No crisp combination punching.. no finished skills are there.

Chavez is a very big, tall, strong, and tough super middleweight — but the aging and hobbling Martinez is the only good boxer he ever faced.

Posted August 22, 2014 1:51 am 


te tumbo

EZ, he was not particularly favored v. Zbik and almost lost except for landing the harder punches. Lee was coming off of an impressive KO win and matched Chavez Jr’s. size if not grit. Rubio was coming off a 10-fight win streak including a TKO of the undefeated Lemieux and Vanda who he dispatched withOut controversy. the vato’s got like an 80% KO rate and notorious for his own grit. he was not a soft-touch for Chavez by any means. of course no serious fight-fan gave Fredo much of a chance but there were a few Haters that did. meanwhile, we both know that Lopez earned the shot by busting up the scheduled Ortiz who himself was a last resort following declined challenges from Cotto and Kirkland. followed by Trout coming off of a dominating win v. Cotto, followed by Mayweather, Angulo, and Lara. Canelo’s not only started to step up at 22, he’s completed a virtual sweep of the entire 154lb weight-class. something that Cotto never did during four years in the same weight-class. C’mon homie(?!). how can you even compare? . . . Paz.

Posted August 21, 2014 11:01 pm 


EZ E

TUMBO With mi respeto Carnal, but you might be missing my point a bit. Jr wasn’t favored vs Zbik? Lee? Rubio? Manfredo? Yes he was. The road was paved and sometimes bumpy, but that’s because of the fact that he lacked a bit in talent. (And missed a few piss test and official weigh’ins in between, LOL!!) NONE were the best/more deserved challengers, you gotta admit. How long did it take for him, his dad, and the multiple ridiculous excuses before he FI-nally face mandatory Martinez? Almost 2 years. The same goes for Canelo before he Fi-nally stepped up. Com’on Carnal, Mosley?? 40yr old Mosley? Hatton, Kermit The Frog? Josesito? Rhodes? Alfonso Lopez? OVER 2 years as well. If Cotto would go that route now you, ME and all hell would be in an uproar. LOL!! Es verdad Compa, que no? Within year after winning the title Cotto fought Margarito 2, a fight which MOST expected Cotto to lose as well, and then Floyd. No, Cotto really didn’t accomplish much at 154Lb but CERTAINLY didn’t sit on his title for TWO years like Junior or Canelo. My point Carnal is still that next May/June is not that far away. Let’s give him a fair shake, and be “Equal Opportunity Fans”. LOL!! But it’s all good, como siempre!! Al’rrato y Paz!

Broner should NOT bow down to pressure to move up in weight, boxing is NOT a game if he is comfortable at 135, then he should dominate at the weight till he feels it is time to move on..

Posted January 14, 2013 10:18 am

SREDMOND

Broner is NOT that big as a LW and if he can make the weight SO WHAT?? Oscar was 5?10 at LW, Diego Corrales was 5?10 1/2 fighting at Superfeatherweight… Shane Mosley was 5?9 at LW knocking guys out….Roberto Duran was 5’7 around the SAME height as Broner, Mayweather is 5?8 taller than Broner fought at LW, Amir Khan was 5?10 fighting at LW, Bredis Prescott was 5?11 when he knocked out Khan at LW…Erik Morales was 5?8 fighting at 130 pounds… I know you guys are NOT fans of facts and become VERY offended when presented with them but Adrian Broner is NOT some sort of massive LW by historical standards and if he is big for the weight… AGAIN this whole argument centers around you guys NOT liking Broner dominating guys in his division he did NOT ask Rees to come up, Rees came DOWN from bigger….

Posted February 19, 2013 10:45 am

SREDMOND

Broner is fighting guys his own size he makes 135 easy!! And no one gave Kotelnik hell when he stopped Rees at 140??? Matthysee came in at 163 according to HBO why is he not facing 154 pounders? Rees and Broner both weighed 150 fight night that’s boxing.. Who cares I’d he was short???

Posted February 19, 2013 1:26 am

SREDMOND

80-1 falls under the heading of irrational exuberance there is no question that Broner was the prohibitive favorite but any odds that get much beyond 15-1 are not credible because they offer not the slightest possibility of another outcome… Broner is getting attacked because he is seeking to clean out a division and staying active while he does it…. If you are fighting every 3 months you are not going to be in the ring with a World Champion every night but Rees was a FORMER Champion and Demarco was the standing Champion the night Broner beat him damn near to death….Broner is actively seeking a fight with Burns to unify, that will look DAMN good down the road when people review and say Broner unifed 135 then moved on OR he unified and defended a few times…Penalizing Broner for his talent is bizarre in the extreme…

Someone on the WBC will say, “I didn’t agree with a new vote, but Canelo came up with a majority this time. It was a democratic process so Canelo is the rightful mandatory challenger … What can I say?” … NSS!!!”

“Canelo will get his chance provided both win the economics dictate that summit meeting” a guaranteed $10 million payday exceeds any of Cotto’s previous “economic” conditions. also, Canelo has been challenging Cotto for years. if he’s aged during that time it’s not because Canelo didn’t try to face him when he was younger.

Posted August 21, 2014 5:13 pm 


te tumbo

IMO, Cotto is too much of a gentleman (snob?) to be considered a true “throwback fighter”, but if blood and guts isn’t included in your definition of that type of fighter, he compares favorably with fighters from any era.

Posted August 21, 2014 5:10 pm 


te tumbo

Btw, with the exception of Josesito who was a last but logical resort following his derailing of Ortiz and declined challenges to Cotto and Kirkland, every one of Saul’s listed opponents was either favored or considered very live dogs for Canelo to overcome. accordingly, Canelo is the Man at 154lbs.

Posted August 21, 2014 5:06 pm 


SREDMOND

Te Tumbo, disagree with that statement Cotto definitely fell on hard times at 154 post Mayweather that said he did not run around scared he went for a good fight at 160 and prevailed… Canelo will get an older version of Cotto to bang on so he cannot complain as Sauls prime will extent for a long time unless he takes copious headshots….Many told Cotto that Trout stylistically was a bad choice and he took him right AFTER the Mayweather loss which was proved to be folly… Cotto is one of the GREATS of this era and a throwback fighter, Canelo will get his chance provided both win the economics dictate that summit meeting..

Posted August 21, 2014 5:01 pm 


te tumbo

REDMOND, Mayweather was not just a challenge for Cotto but the ultimate PPV destination. he would fight and lose to Mayweather every three months for that payday. Trout was a designated underdog carefully-selected to make Cotto look good. however, he was underestimated and Cotto was vastly overestimated resulting in a convincing loss but elevating Trout was not the promotional plan. that leaves who cares? four years at 154lbs and only losses to Mayweather and Trout to show for it is a classic example of a carefully-managed and protected cash-calf. after all, even single-digit multi-millions is nothing to dismiss.

Posted August 21, 2014 5:00 pm 


SREDMOND

The1, how do you KNOW GGG will “fight anyone” he has NOT been willing to move up absent a fight with a PPV guy like Chavez Jr who is NOT a player at 168… Abel Sanchez rhetoric is strong but we see him parked at 160 so this “anyone title” is more talk than action… Even Ward said that his name had been used by that camp…

Posted August 21, 2014 4:59 pm

Q-Vo EZ E. Canelo’s recent ring-resume reads Mosley, Lopez, Trout, Mayweather, Angulo, and Lara and includes multiple challenges to Cotto and Kirkland, which were delcined. this qualifies as a virtual sweep of the entire 154lb weight-class, which easily eclipses Cotto’s four-year tenure at 154lbs during which his most prominent bouts were losses to Mayweather and Trout. Btw, Josesito was a stay-busy bout for Canelo following declined challenges to Cotto and Kirkland. otherwise, Canelo was not particularly favored to win any of the other bouts. Chavez Jr. is another fighter who is consistently panned and was not particularly favored in bouts v. Zbik, Rubio, Lee, Martinez, or even Vera who he immediately rematched to remove any doubt who was the better fighter. con todo respeto, i don’t see any comparison between the expectations of a young phenom or consistently panned “son of the legend” and an established PPV-draw and “legend” like Cotto. if you ask me, “Junito” is the one who continues to coddled and protected for nothing more than promotional interest$. as always, Paz y Respeto to EZ E.

SREDMOND

Fight Aficionado, I disagree that “Everyone is ducking Golovkin” in fact I think it has become a LAZY excuse for a fighter who’s resume does NOT match the hype…Reality is that Golovkin has compiled the bulk of these stoppages against C level boxers and a couple of solid guys like Geale and Macklin who are still NO big deal… Cotto can fight GGG if he wishes but I certainly understand him fighting Canelo for FAR more $$$$ just like GGG wanted Chavez Jr instead of Ward for MORE $$$ the only difference is that Cotto is a HOFER who has earned the right to secure his future in mega bouts, Golovkin is a guy with a big reputation and a pretty weak resume who’s fans erroneously think the world his owed to him….

TUMBO “if Cotto is only a promotional champion he should vacate 160lbs and return to 154lbs or exit the sport altogether. fight-fans should be excited that the sport’s champions are not allowed to rest on their laurels and dictate terms that doN’T result in the best matchups.’

Con todo respeto but I kind’a smell a double standard there Carnal. You might remember, that’s basically what I was saying all along when Suliaman PERSONALLY & UNDESERVEDLY made Canelo and Chavez Jr his ‘pet champions’ with NO rightful credentials. Their ardent non-objective fans got irrationally upset with my comments. Cotto has only been champion a few months and has earned his right to take his time and will NOT take TWO years like it took Canelo and Chavez Jr before they FI-nally stepped it up a bit, practically sitting on their gift titles. Cotto won the title by upsetting the RECOGNIZED lineal champion, no gimme, 90% of the fans predicted he was gonna get smoked! Excuses were made for Junior and Canelo: “They shouldn’t be rushed” “They’re too young” “They ain’t ready yet”… Well if that was true then they shouldn’t have been “fabricated’ as champs in the first place. They were cut YEARS of slack, most any fan would agree. Canelo has proven that he’s got the goods. How good? Only time will tell. Al’rrato, paz y respeto.

Fact is GGG has challenged all the big names at 160 to fight and none have answered. Martinez ducked him 2 years and now it’s Cotto’s turn. Quillin won’t say his name. Neither with Jacobs. So fact is they’re all ducking GGG until one of them grows balls and decides to prove otherwise.

Guy wanting to build Golovkins reputation off this notion that the whole sport thinks about him day and night really undermine what he has ACTUALLY accomplished… They don’t award belts or titles for “most avoided according to ESB posters” GGG is NOT Floyd Mayweather Jr where ALOT of guys are thinking about him for the riches… Most of these fighters want to make some $$$$$ and are looking for the best opportunities available and GGG is not bringing that kind of $$$$ at this point.

That’ll be intersting. If GGG becomes Cotto’s mandatory they won’t enforce it for a year though. And by then Cotto could lose or simply give up the belt to avoid GGG.

I feel Cotto is a professional boxer and chose his career. He throws hands for a living and anyone that fears for him in any sense doesn’t quite get that. I don’t care if klitschko fights lomachenko as long as they both agree nobody else should.

The1, GGG is a natural MW and he is a bigger and stronger man than Cotto it would certainly be a dangerous fight considering Miguel began his career at 140… I disagree with “Fear” being the primary motivator , truth is that Golovkin is not bringing a lot of BANK to the table and in comparison to Canelo it is not even a discussion.. Cotto vs Canelo might do 500k-700k in PPV at $60 that’s 30-42 million to divide up… Not an inconsequential sum for a fighter that is closing in on 34….

Posted August 21, 2014 11:38 am 


SREDMOND

Te Tumbo, if Cotto remains at 160 he will eventually have to fight GGG that said I doubt he does that and the odds of him facing Golovkin before he faces Canelo assuming both win their next bouts is remote… The monies are TOO large and that’s simply NOT going to happen… When GGG sought a PPV bout who did he target at 168? NOT Ward, he targeted Chavez Jr who has no real credentials at that weight because of the $$$$$$… So really how does this differ from Cottos stance on the matter????

Posted August 21, 2014 11:32 am

Agreed.. cotto has been a warrior and i wouldn’t fault him for taking the easy pass after a battle tested career. But when people say Golovkin doesn’t deserve or couldn’t touch Cotto have clearly separated themselves from what we know to be reality.

Posted August 21, 2014 11:31 am

The1, I have respect for GGG but I don’t have respect for the way people want to use him as a lever to dismiss fighters with greater resumes and accomplishments..His record has scant quality on it and that is indeed a fact…I have no issue with Cotto facing him at some point but the reality is that Cotto is in position to make the kind of payday that GGG would drop down to 140 to get (12-15mill) against Canelo… Miguels willingness to bang with the best and climb the scales give him the right to chart his own course.. Do I think he will fight at MW for 3 years? I doubt it he is just too small, that said a Canelo bout would be a Mega Fight and no one is passing on that because Golovkin needs better names on his resume…

The simple matter of it all is…… If Golovkin does become Cotto’s mandatory?…….and vacates the title… by not fighting Golovkin….. then all eyes will be open to what has truly happened .I am with Pauli M. on this one. I would give Cotto a pass on it. It would be understandably why as well. Those of you who have worshiped Cotto for his ring bravery over his tenure in the sport,should realize that Cotto fighting Golovkin would not be in his best interest … especially after what he has accomplished in the sport. It would not end well for Cotto, if he decided to fight. Cotto Scared to fight? No … not at all. Cotto does not need this. But the reality is…. it will look questionable if he does vacate…. he does hold the belt at 160…. no way around it at all. Other Boxers have vacated belts in choosing not to fight Golovkin. It will not end here either….. with Boxers vacating belts to avoid other boxers. Simply…. sometimes… this is done from time to time.

i can’t even remotely fathom why anybody would object to boxing-politics resulting in Golovkin having to face Cotto? something is More wrong when presumed fight-fans contrive excuses for showdowns not(?!?) to happen. i can only hope and Pray that Canelo or “Zurdo” Ramirez were declared mandatory challengers for Golovkin or Cotto. bottomline, IF Cotto’s a legitimate middleweight champion then it only figures that he would be set up v. the most-promising contende(S)r. if Cotto is only a promotional champion he should vacate 160lbs and return to 154lbs or exit the sport altogether. fight-fans should be excited that the sport’s champions are not allowed to rest on their laurels and dictate terms that doN’T result in the best matchups.

Cotto is NOT scared of GGG or anyone and he has earned the right for me to say that..Fcuk GGG in comparison to Cotto who has had a TON of World Championship fights against Mosley, Mayweather, Pacquiao, Clottey, Judah, Margarito, Trout, Martinez, Malignaggi all damn good or peak versions of these fighters…If Cotto is lining up a shot at Canelo for more money than Golovkin will likely make in his career then GOOD for Cotto! he fought the lineal MW Champ at 155 pounds and TKOed him after moving up 4 weight classes… Golovkin does NOT run boxing that’s why he is gonna have to pay his dues the way Cotto, Mayweather, Marquez, and Pacquiao did… GGG is fighting Kelly Pavlik vic Rubio next so how in the HELL can he fight Cotto in Dec?? GTFOH with the “World is scared of Golovkin” schtick it is OLD…

Not sure how GGG can be Cottos mandatory. Are the sanctioning bodies now ranking other fighters that have titles in their rankings now? I know they came to an agreement about unifying but have heard nothing about them being ranked. I know it was talked about but not sure if they came to an agreement.

Posted August 21, 2014 10:10 am

Hmmm…I could be “wrong” but.. it looks like young Suliaman is no different than his dad. First he allows Floyd to hold TWO titles simultaneously without ordering him to make any MANDATORY defenses. “Why”? The reason$ are as clear bottled water. In an attempt to clean that up he’s considering sanctioning the Floyd vs Maidana 2 for BOTH titles. “Wow” kid, you really came out of that one “smelling like a rose”, huh? LOL! Now it “$eem$” that he’s deep into Oscar’s pocket$. He’s ORDERING that the Rubio vs GGG fight winner Cotto’s mandatory, as if there’s a “mystery” on the winner. Since when has the WBC made a champion from ANOTHER org their #1 mandatory challenger?? Why?? It’s clear to see that younger Suliaman trying to “indirectly” force a Cotto vs Canelo fight, for the sake of GBP. Nothing new, just another day in the WBC office. Let me make this clear, I have NO problems with a Cotto vs Canelo, I have said this many times, and HOPE it’s made for May or June. Why not stop the BS and ORDER a Canelo vs GGG fight, winner being the mandatory?? hmmm.. Most ALL fans would’ve LOVED it and AGREED except….. GBP and a large portion of Canelo fans. Why?? Well, I believe 99% of the fans know the answer to that one. Anyway, Suliaman knows that trying to make Team Canelo accept a title eliminator vs GGG would be a waste and make Team Canelo/Oscar look bad. Not that Canelo doesn’t have a chance, he does, but it’s TOO RISKY. One thing perfectly clear, this young Suliaman is definitely “a chip off the old block”. Peace to all!

Most people thought Cotto was going to lose to Martinez because they had no idea how shot Martinez was going into the fight. Martinez was a pale shadow of the fighter he once was. He had nothing left except pride.

Cotto’s victory owes more to luck and perfect timing than anything else. Martinez’s slippage was evident against Barker, Macklin, and Murray, who many feel actually beat him. Murray couldn’t punch his way out of a wet paper bag but he still managed drop Martinez twice.

Cotto beat a pair of one-legged cripples to win his 154 and 160 straps, he’s in for rude and harsh awakening if fights Golovkin.

Why would cotto fight GGG ? Cotto deserves to fight whoever he wants. He still needs to adjust to 160 before he can take on GGG. I ask why doesn’t GGG move up in weight to fight people his own size. Fight froch, ward or even groves. GGG is wasting his time at middleweight .

Cotto has been great for the game. Not much bs. Not scared to step up. Has overcome major set backs. Doesn’t beat up his missus. And recently his ring iq and an implementation has been excellent. G man will get tested by cotto but I see the naturally bigger stronger man prevailing. The only thing I don’t like abt him is his habit of referring to himself in the 3rd person. And his wife is a bit hefty around the hips for my particular preference. I will forgive him for the former.

Cotto was a small light middle i don’t think there’s any shame in him moving back down and admitting that middle isn’t his division. Martinez was an opportunity he could not turn down against another small middleweight but actually campaigning at the weight is another matter. I don’t see anyone beating Golovkin at middleweight so the natural order is he clears up the belts at middle then moves up to face the challenges at super middle. Cotto should look to make the fight with Canelo at light middle – if Canelo can make that weight still.

“If Cotto decides to vacate the WBC title rather than face Golovkin, he’s going to look like he’s running from him” but right into Canelo’s waiting arms (lol) . . . loving it. reminds me of when Pacquiao* plucked the cherry orchard clean only to turn around and realize that he had painted himself into a corner and Mayweather and Marquez were now blocking his exit and staring right at him. Pacquiao* chose Marquez and the rest is BRUTAL-KO history. meanwhile, big props to Rubio for taking matters into his own hands and facilitating Sulaiman’s decree. now Cotto finds himself in a corner of his own making with Golovkin (or Rubio) blocking his path and Canelo waiting below with open arms.

Jo jo.. if you think a fighter who aged and was shot moreso over the last few fights (long replaced from his prime untouchable self) in Martinez was a big deal and a mountain for Cotto, then i have a couple plates of cow $hit i can put icing on so you can think it’s cake. It’s quite apparent that over the last several fights Martinez has proven ongoing decline and vulnerability not to mention bad knee(s). To compare beating a progressively declining fighter to an absolute killer has no logic. Miguel Cotto is gonna be beaten half way to death. At best, he’ll do the same as Rosado and leak from every orifice before his team throws in the towel. As Soon as Cotto get’s caught solid he will go into his shell and get picked apart until he concedes one way or another. He wont see the final bell and absolutely won’t win against Golovkin. You think cotto is gonna pick his shots and move? I don’t! Golovkin will cut the ring off and make him fight.. its all down hill from there for Cotto. You have a better chance of see a skittle $hittin’ unicorn than a Cotto win over Golovkin.

Freddie you’re protecting YOUR fighter because you KNOW full well that Golovkin would hammer Cotto.

Talk for yourself, That not cotto real fighting weight, and he crush Martinez, so no harm or shame to vacate if he did so. Cotto has balls, and a very defense I could see GGG not landing flush on cotto and he upsetting on points alone.

In other words.. from this article, i gather two pieces of information. 1) Rubio has an a$$ whoopin’ coming. 2) Golovkin is gonna get a new strap.

Rubio

Let me be the first to say, if boxtradamuas picks ggg I am now doubtful when I was once sure he’d stop cotto.
