Yea they did, my bad they were both light middleweights. Idk hopefully for bertos sake the weight is the problem with his stamina and chin or else I don't see it holding up against bigger guys


i believe his stamina issues have everything to do with nervous energy and being too tense in the ring. the simple solution: relax and breathe. i guess it's easier said than done for most.

That sounds sort of like Devon Alexanders problem too

that's usually a problem for people who have just started to box, it's not really a good sign when your a professional fighter having that problem. being too tense in the ring creates a world of problems from lack of focus to stamina issues.

Reminds me of that scene from Diggstown, when the guy kept passing gas after the fight started, because he was hella nervous. Lol

u'd be surprised how many fighters have this simple problem. even the great george foreman had it coming up. he was a beast....until he came across ali. he credits a big part of his success in the comeback to being more relaxed and pacing himself.

that's real! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) i had a guy who every time he was getting ready to fight...he had stomach issues. he threw up one time before a fight. nerves will get the best of them.

tbh a few mates had that problem even after fighting quite a few times, i never understood why. I mean my first fight ever I gassed so quickly, no idea why and this was just a normal 3 round fight lol. but after that it was just comfortable being in there

to be in a state of calm when the lights are shining....the crowd is roaring...and ur opponent is trying to take ur head off..etc..etc.. is not something u can practice. all those things add up to serious pressure that would make some of the strongest men break. it takes a certain demeanor and ability to perform under extreme pressures to thrive in situations like that. u know it when u see it...but trying to become that...or trying to develop that in a fighter is not easy. experience is the best teacher.

Going back to Cotto, today i read in our local newspaper (el nuevo dia) that Cotto is going to Big Bear for 22 days for high altitude training, that shows he is taking this fight very serious. Cotto alwas prepared to fight in PR or in Florida. Im puertorrican and it has always struck me that PR Boxers lately they dont commit to developing stamina as it should (in my humble opinion).

Tito Trinidad was a limited fighter (i even admit to that) and one if the things that carried him was that mofo had such great stamina, and his recovery between rounds was second to none. Obviously he had a great team of sports doctors that helped him with that.
