It’s Me, Ernie

As much as it pains me to agree with the Tard, Sulianto is an idiot. It’s obvious Manos de stucco had loaded gloves for several of his fights.

I NEVER SAID that Dirrell slapped Abraham. YOU SAID that. And YOU were WRONG as was the Ref….. I SAID that he punched Abraham in the SIDE of the neck and made him fly like a RAG doll. How can a SLAP make someone fly in the air when they’re over 100 pounds??? Nice try on the brain washing but I KNOW what I SAID. YOU saying something and making ME believe that I SAID it may work for Bugs Bunny but it doesn’t work HERE….I SAID that Calzaghe slapped alot and he got credit for it because it wasn’t considered INTENTIONAL. IF he didnt’ get credit for his slaps how did he WIN any decisions???

You’re an idiot Sulianto… Pacquiao is 10 times the fighter Cheato is so he doesn’t need plaster. Cotto presented photographic proof that Cheato used plaster. Cotto beat the hell out of Cheato in the rematch to prove he was cheated… How many KO’s has Cheato scored since he was caught before the Mosley fight??? ZERO!!!

Funny thing.. Cotto beat Mosley — but Mosley smashed Cheato after the Cheater was forced to rewrap his hands and change gloves … Make him fight fair and he’s a dud.

Sulianto

Tark, Turd or whatever. It has been WIDELY discussed and everybody in boxing circuits is pretty damn sure Margarito DID NOT CHEAT in his fight against Cotto. Even Cotto’s team verified this version (only to change it prior to the rematch). Truth is Pacquiao busted Cotto’s face more impressively than margarito and caused more damage overall. Was Pacquiao also hiding bricks in his gloves? LOL!

You insist that Dirrell scored a 7th round knockdown over Abraham 2:55 into the round—in a case where the referee ruled NO KNOCKDOWN because the contact was made with the palm of the glove, which isn’t a legal scoring surface … You repeatedly try to strengthen your premise by insisting Joe Calzaghe frequently slapped with the palm and was given credit for the slaps, which is also fallacious. In both cases, either your eyes are really bad and you don’t know the rules of Boxing, or you’re selling.

In the MargaCheato fight Cotto realized something was terribly wrong. Cheato wasn’t catching him with sharp punches, but they felt like sledge hammers. Finally he goes WTF is this, and takes a knee. He realized he had to quit or be damaged so it was the smartest move of his career.

Cotto made more money AFTER the 1st Cheato fight than all of his fights before that sad night — so it was a critical decision to get out of there.

Posted December 3, 2012 1:44 pm 


Scott

I scored the fight 9-3 for Trout. Cotto had some good moments but he wasn’t consistent and wasn’t (or couldn’t) pulling the trigger. Trout won this fight not because he was more talented or expereinced but because he outworked Cotto who seemed to wait and wait and wait and wait before throwing anything. Cotto let Trout get off first the entire night and you can’t win a fight with a performance like that.

I really felt for Cotto. He hasn’t been the same fighter he was since his loss to Margarito and the mental and physical fallout of that fight is finally catching up to him.

Alvarez obviously would have wanted the Cotto payday, however the real fight is Trout. Both are top drawer guys that have been brought alon the right way. Both well schooled athleats in there prime.

TARK

Floyd had a bloody nose and a couple of marks on his face from Cotto’s sharp shots, and after the 12-round struggle said, “Cotto is the toughest man I ever fought.”

Trout was unmarked at the press conference immediately afterward—and looked anything like a guy who just went 12 rounds with Miguel Cotto.. It was another day at the office for a relaxed Trout, as he answered questions and called Canelo out 3 or 4 times..

Canelo disappeared after the fight. He probably would have appeared at the press conference had Cotto won as Golden Boy Promotions planned—but he didn’t want to answer any questions about Trout. Trout whipped his brother and Cotto so why not?

At the end of the day it was great seeing Cottos amazing timing and masterful technique upclose and personal he put on a great show for us last night and his talents were on full display he had us going crazy popping Trout with lefthooks at will and Trout never had us worried we knew the damage on Cottos face was from the size difference and Cotto built such a lead early that he only needed 1or 2 rounds in the 2nd half of the fight.

Posted December 2, 2012 3:25 pm 


srminimo

BTW- I had the fight 7-5 for Trout, so I was surprised the judges saw it so wide. Seeing it live it didn’t seem Tout really landed that many heavy punches, but Cotto looked like he had been put through the ringer after a couple of rounds, so I wonder if Trout was perhaps catching Cotto coming in more than we could see live. I’m eager to see it on tv to see if it really was that wide.

Posted December 2, 2012 3:17 pm

I don’t think Cotto has the work ethic nor the discipline to make a healthy 147lbs again so he’s pretty much done at the top level of any weight class..Trout/Canelo should be next, no excuses.

Ive always said Cotto isnt a true jmw look at how marked up he was from a light punching jmw. Hes still top of the foodchain though if he goes back to 147 hes still the 3rd best behind Pac and Floyd the 2 best p4p fighters in the world. Doesnt change the fact that the only way Trout outscored him is if the judges scored points for Trouts head against Cottos lefthook.

Posted December 2, 2012 2:24 pm 


The Mad Scientist

I think the top guys at 147lbs would beat Miguel Cotto at this point as well..Miguel’s only chance is to blow guys out the water in the first half of the fight before his stamina issues bite him in the ass in the second half..I always thought Canelo would put a serious ass beating on Cotto and Trout pretty much confirmed that and Im no longer interested in a Cotto/Canelo bout..bring on Trout/Canelo instead.

Posted December 2, 2012 2:24 pm

Every time Canelo gets a chance for a big fight, the wrong guy wins. Canelo isn’t afraid of Trout, he’s just knows he lost the chance at getting the Cotto fight.

Posted December 2, 2012 2:22 pm 


te tumbo

IMO, Cotto’s best chance at 154lbs is to blow opponents out early but he doesn’t possess the sure-fire power to blow-out legitimate 154lbrs without his A-game and some luck. Cotto remains dangerous but i would not favor him v. the likes of Kirkland, Molina, Thurman, Martirosyan, Angulo, or even Lara. i wouldn’t mind seeing Cotto v. Ortiz or Berto though(?). like i said, some creative matchmaking and Cotto’s remains in the hunt.

Posted December 2, 2012 2:11 pm 


te tumbo

i think Cotto still craves the competition but not any more punishment. Cotto has always had a tendency to fade late but at 154lbs it’s become a fatal flaw. his name still comands a couple more paydays and even one more punishing loss but it won’t come cheap or easy. nonetheless, i anticipate that by the end of 2013, careful matchmaking and/or promotional sleight-of-hand will once again place Cotto riding shotgun in a PPV matchup v. Alvarez or his equivalent. that is, If Cotto still wants some.

8-4 Trout. Jab and straight left to the body found a home all night. Cotto fought well but most of the flurries were parried/blocked/avoided. Was impressed with Trout and look forward to the unification fight with Canelo. Cotto still looked good it was just a tough matchup, physically. There’s no reason for Cotto to hang em up unless he doesn’t want it any more…

The Best!

Again, as much as I like Cotto he got worked all 12 rounds he probably only connected 5-10 decent hits in the whole fights whatever he did hit Trout with didnt phase him one bit. I honestly think the guys at 154 are too big for Cotto and he should go to 147 where he can look like the Cotto of old.

Adaliade Byrd is such a r@c!st and a b!g0t, she actually had Popkins over Calzaghe, no surprise she had it so skewed in favor of the brutha. Trout one, but not 11 rounds to 1.

Posted December 2, 2012 12:17 pm 


te tumbo

Cotto has been an undersized and glorified gatekeeper at 154lbs all along. only the loyalty and delusional faith of his fans have kept him relevant. otherwise, he’s been done as a truly elite fighter since he left 147lbs. perhaps, Lara, Kirkland, or Angulo will present him with an opportunity to perform a miracle(?). it would bring discredit to Alvarez’s ring-profile to face Cotto now, which is why i wanted him to be the first to drop the curtains on title-contention for Cotto. it’s one or two more paydays for (if he wins) and the curtains to Cotto’s great career will finally draw to a close.

Yeah I thought this fight was much closer. I didn’t score it but some rounds I thought Cotto won cause he seemed to be landing the harder punches. Everytime Cotto landed he would wobble trouts head all around. Cotto looked busted up but that is not really an indicator on who won. But it was a good fight

Trout surprisingly looked more calm though it was the biggest test to date for him. Cotto has been in with top fighters forever and looked a lot more tense. I think it was closer than the score but Trout beat him for sure. I like Cotto but it is what it is. He seemed out of his normal self when he was leaving the ring… Like he was robbed and even said “ask the fans” when Jim gray asked him if he thinks he won the fight. Of course the fans would say he won when its in his back yard and even when he swings and misses they scream.

Cotto was never in the fight Trout looked still fresh and ready for more . I think too much hype has been put on Cotto and for me, I’d like him to really think and retire
Packman took his soul years ago and he can bounce around to different trainers and strength coaches but the fight in him has diminished,. He had no fight in him last night
How he could say he was in the fight is way beyond me. Yea,, he was there, but his heart and soul were somewhere else. He fought to survive NOT to win . Retire champ you ‘ve given us some great fights but it’s just not there anymore … PEACE

At the risk of soundking like I’m amaking excuses, Trout was obviously the much bigger guy in the Ring, he smoothered Cotto and was holding a hell of a lot.. that being said, it’s part of fighting and if Cotto couldn’t figure out a way to overcome those tactics then he definitely lost the rounds.. Trouts low blows also took a lot of steam out of Cotto can’t say they were intentional but intentional or not they had an effect on Cottos power… Good win for Trout Cotto has to seriously regroup and in my opinion go back to his Uncle and end his career with the guy who got him to the top… The Cuban Trainer is not baqd just not a guy who can get the most out of Cottos natural Body Snatcher style.. too much time spent trying to make Cotto an Elite light on his feet Boxer??? why???

Posted December 2, 2012 10:53 am 


Public Enemy

The fight was a little closer then the judges had it but Cotto lost.. it wasn’t a spectacular fight, too much holding and avoiding exchanbes but no duubt trout won the majority of rounds.. Cotto better seriously start thinking of calling it a day.. he just doesn’t have that killer instinct like he had when he was younger and training with the Cuban in my opinion has been terrible for him.. The Cuban has been trying to turn Cotto into a Boxer which is not Cottos strength. When Cotto was crowding Trout like he did with Mayweather he had success but then he tries to bout box these guys wh are naturally much better pure Boxers… stupid strategy..Good win for Trout and now it seems like trout and Canelo can get it on… Cotto can make a few more fights but his better days are definitely behind him.. Good champ but all things come to an end…

Posted December 2, 2012 10:49 am 


Love-the-Sport

Another big outcome of the Cotto-Trout fight is what it means for Mayweather. Cotto was too small, too short, too old for Trout. What does this say about Mayweather? Mayweather says that Cotto gave him one of the hardest fights in Mayweather’s career. If that is true and Cotto is small, short, and old for the elite fighters – then maybe Mayweather is not really in a position to fight the big tough guys at 154. I think the outcome of Cotto-Trout says that not only will Cotto retire — but Mayweather is NEVER going to fight Canelo Alvarez and he is probably NEVER going to fight Trout or Lara or Kirkland or Angulor or Martinez coming down from 160. I think Cotto vs. Trout kills all of those fights because Cotto looked awful against a real 154 and he looked strong against Mayweather. In an outcome that may be good for boxing, the Cotto vs. Trout fight may have cemented a Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight because Mayweather is likely to go down to 147. He may fight Guerrero to get a tune-up against a lefty and then Pacquiao.

Posted December 2, 2012 10:40 am 


Love-the-Sport

Anybody who says the fight went as expected is lying. This fight had a lot of uncertainty. Most people would say that Cotto would have had more power but he turned out to be too small and too short. Cotto showed more experience in the fight but he also showed age and he faded in the end. This fight was difficult to predict what would happen. I thought Trout looked good but not great. The fight was more about Cotto being too small, too short, and too old. After this fight, Cotto would be a huge underdog against everybody at 154: Alvarez, Lara, Kirkland, Angulo. And Cotto would be an underdog against most of the guys at 147: Manny Pacquiao, Robert Guerrero, Josesito Lopez. Cotto would only have and edge against the smaller guys at 147: Paulie Malignaggi, Timothy Bradley, Devon Alexander — but even these guys would give Cotto a hard fight because of speed and number of punches they would throw. Cotto should probably retire.

An off night for Cotto, but respect anyway for a very good and humble ambassador for the sport. Hats off to Trout for the boxing clinic. He will be ducked for a few fights from the bigger names but will eventually catch up to the money. Hopefully he can maintain and stay busy and his biggest days are yet to come. Thanks Cotto, time to rest up and rethink priorities. Respect.

I was wrong in my prediction. I thought Cotto would beat Trout via 12-round UD.

trout fought a great fight but you have to remember that before cotto fought junior everyone including myself had wrote cotto off but against a really good 154 fighter cotto had his work cut out for him trout would beat canelo though he has a punchers chance ..canelo must be bleeding as well as goldenshower the numbers cotto VS canelo would have done $$$$$$$ ….

Paulie Malinaggi said that Cotto won… 115-114. Trout clearly beat Cotto.

The fight went as I expected and the scores were more generous to Trout than I expected… I had it 117-111 for Trout, Steve Farhood, Brian Kenny, and 2 of the judges had it 117-111 for Trout.. Adalaide Byrd, who I never thought could score a fight had it 119-109 for Trout—but Paulie Malignaggi had the other extreme at 114-114..

You figure Paulie would be a better expert than anyone else there, but I’ve always known fighters to favor guys whom they fought.. Nobody wants to be the guy who never fought anybody really good, so their scores will be skewed in cases like this.
