Public Enemy

I pointed out years ago that the Cuban Coach was all wrong for Cotto, nice guy but all wrong and that Cotto should hook up with Freddie Roach, I guess Cotto took my advice.. even though our resident Chihuahuas said I was crazy… Who’s crazy now? LOL

Public doushbag-Rios by knockout. Pacquio is over the hill, over rated, never good.

“How about Roach’s career? He should be just about finished as well I would think.”

It’s amazing to me jwb, that Roach can still train fighters at the level that he does. I mean sometimes, he looks like he can hardly walk. Yet he leads boxers like Pacquiao and Cotto through some murderous workouts. Surely his Parkinson’s Disease is taking over, but Roach is going to do the best he can til the very end.

Big Al, or from Povetkin for ducking deep and shoving his elbow in Vladimiir’s face.

Doesn’t surprise me at all. This is the type of trainer Roach is. And honestly, Cotto’s weakness for the last 8 years has been the same. He can (and probably will) be hurt at some point during the fight. That’s what makes him a “must watch”. Much respect to Cotto…love you man. Hope you do alright tonight

I’m not doubting Cotto wanting to fight Floyd. Nor am I doing it with Pac. I’ve said it from the beginning when the first negotiations crumbled with the Pac fight. Arum does not want to deal with Golden Boy or Floyd. Plain and simple. It was evident when Golden Boy sent them a contract for Mares to fight Donaire and the did nothing with it.

“Sorry but when Floyd wanted to fight Cotto, Arum and his greedy old self said no Cotto wasn’t ready.”

That’s fine Peej. But the important thing to remember is that Arum wasn’t the one doing the fighting. Cotto wanted to fight Mayweather and he publicly announced his desire to do so. So don’t blame Miguel for what Arum did. You know as well as anyone else that if Arum doesn’t want to make a fight, he’s not going to make it. And as long as Cotto was under contract to him, Cotto had to take what Arum gave him.

So what if Arum said Cotto wasn’t ready for Mayweather? He also claimed a bigger arena had to be built in Las Vegas before Pacquiao could fight Floyd.

“Roach used to train Hopkins, he told Hopkins to retire after he lose to Calzaghe, and Hopkins continued fighting and still won three championship belt.”

So what, muchacho? Why don’t you tell the whole story regarding Roach’s advice to Hopkins? Roach and Hopkins are also good friends. Roach was very concerned about Bernard’s ability to fight Kelly Pavlik after the way he acted in his fight with Calzaghe. Hopkins walked to the wrong corner, between rounds, four times inthat bout, prompting a flurry of jokes about Hopkins. Doing so also prompted a lot of concern from Freddie who trained Hopkins for that fight. In what fight before or after his bout with Calzaghe has Hopkins ever done that? Freddie thought Kelly would be too dangerous for him so he advised him not to fight him and to retire.

Big deal. Freddie was wrong. It’s not the first time a trainer has been wrong about his fighter. Won’t be the last either. But at least Roach wasn’t wrong in a way that harmed Hopkins.

“The thing that Roach and Cotto needs to worry about this fight is not getting too aggressive. Roach had the same wish for Manny Pacquiao in his last fight in saying that he wanted him to go back to the aggressive fighter that he was earlier in his career.”

Smith is comparing apples to oranges. I bet you all noticed that Smith also used yet another article to bash Manny Pacquiao. And Freddie Roach.

“Aggressive” does not directly translate to “foolish.” Cotto has always been a devastating body puncher. Across the board he’s a much better fighter than Delvin Rodriguez.

Cotto will handle Rodriguez. He might even TKO him. Go back to bed, Smith.

Cotto should get this win via decision, unless Freddie truly made some real improvements in Cotto’s mental and technical state then I would predict a late TKO, Rodriguez is no push over, and like Trout, fighting Cotto pushes any boxer to train harder than ever, either way it goes I think fans will get to see a good fight, with mixes of boxing and at times action, if Cotto wins without controversy, I think a fight with the new 154lbs champ Molina is the best line of action, becoming a champ once again will give Cotto the upper hand with future huge fights like Canelo or Sergio,,and if Cotto beats Canelo or Sergio,,doesn’t need to beat both but just one, Cotto can claim a rematch with the best boxer of his generation PFM, and if Cotto makes it that far,,,I won’t bet on it but I do hope so, this meaning Freddie has had a positive impact on Cotto,,,styles make fights, look at 1st fight PFM vs Cotto, and Cotto surely at that moment would deserve the rematch and fans can bet on a sure hard fight for PFM,,,this sounds too good to be possible,,lol,,,Peace

Time for Freddie to retire, he have no confidence to his fighter, Cotto need to retire if he lose, Manny need to retire if he lose, fighter hires you to make them good, if you cannot make them good you better retire. as a coach, never accept defeat when the fight is not even happen yet.

Posted October 5, 2013 11:36 am 


What kind of jackass trainer would go out and announce that his fighter is washed up if he doesn’t get a win!?! No Roach, you’re a washed up trainer.
It didn’t sink in yet.

Posted October 5, 2013 11:23 am 


I like how people try to down play floyds win over cotto by saying cotto is washed up. Last time i check cotto was 32, floyd 36. That means money is washed up too and still beating these dudes! Amazing!

God’s P.A

Mayweather jus didn’t have the balls to fight the ‘Prime’ Cotto (pre AM) FM had to take him on after he had been defeated, yet another reason why ^TheBoss^ simply cannot stand Floyd Mayweather! (Plus the ducking of AM and all the little guys he brings up to 147, oh yer the Manny thing too… And other things…)

God’s P.A

We would love to see MG on the road to another World Title, A true fighter ducking none in his path, Cotto by wide UD

Posted October 5, 2013 9:32 am 

Mr Gav

If cotto is still hall of fame standerd then he should beat a very decent fighter in Rodriquez impressively. I do agree cotto was never the same from his first defeat to AM. But was it proven that AM was cheating or do we just have to assume he did?

100% prepared *

Changing trainers was his biggest mistake … He was never really 100 % after Mosley fight …

Tom can-ur right….I don’t think Freddy is the man 4 Cotto. 2 things started Cotto’s demise….getting bashed by handwraparitto and bed hoping from trainer 2 trainer, Feddie isn’t the answer. I’m still hopeful of a Cotto though.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:43 am 

Tomato Can

That’s exactly what I wouldn’t want to hear my first time out with a new trainer!

Posted October 5, 2013 2:44 am 


Cotto should have retired already. These fights, win or lose mean nothing. His legacy is cemented. This was a great fighter that will slowly destroy his reputation. A once great boxer and role model to many will go down the path of past greats. There is nothing left to prove Mr. Cotto. Hang em up before someone makes you hang em up.

david d.

1) That statement should have never been uttered to anyone outside the Cotto camp. 2) That said, Freddie is not a defensive minded trainer. 3) Cotto lost his way after that illegal, brutal beaten at the hands of AM….

Posted October 5, 2013 12:17 am 


Cotto is done at 154. Too small n lack of power to complete at 154. Cotto is better suited for 147. He should strongly consider going back to 147 if he can make wieght.

It’s always been about offence and aggression 4 Freddy… That can only take u so far. He has a few guys who r at cross roads of there careers. I’d like 2 c Cotto with an impressive win, get back in the mix with the big boys.

Posted October 4, 2013 11:41 pm 


Poor Freddie he looks like he’s crying
