He picks Roach as his Trainer. I wonder if this was really a deep seeded move by HBO to get a star in that weight class on their network. I'd love to see Cotto go back to 147 and start getting with the Bradley's, Alexander's and Mayweather Jr Jr's of the world. He's not built for 154. PLEASE Miguel go back to 147 and become a bigger legend. he can beat all of the top guys at 147 and retire a stud.

it had nothing to do with his uncle evangelista, in fact they hated each other and created negativity in the camp which is never good. When cotto was with evangelista and winning all those fights it was because he was strong as shit and in his prime. cotto has always been his own boss, and has always only needed a trainer to get him in shape, not really teach him. cotto knows how to fight and is a very intelligent fighter, but it looks like he takes a beating because his facial features swell up and make him look a lot worse then it really is. He is a very clever fighter and he knows how to use his experience in the ring.

He would be a great test for canelo to go 12 rounds against IMO. I believe he would go the distance and give canelo a mayweather type of performance under roach. I believe roach will do for him much like he did for ruslan and get his ferociousness back and his aggressive ness and offensive timing perfected again. He will get him into cotto mode like that of old. The only thing he needs is a good punching style match up such as a come forward toe to toe fighter. Thats where cotto will really shine. He seems to be in the pacquiao boat, where they both need fights to shine again.

I would love to see a fight between cotto and James Kirkland since Kirkland is free. give his bum as 100 grand and let them fight on hbo, fuck it why not? i would have loved to see either of angulo or lara fight cotto and i was really hoping for that but maybe down the road.

I like the macthup, but I think a trained and focused Kirkland stops Cotto. In fact I dont even think Cotto is a top 5 Jr MW. I can immediately think of 5 dudes ahead of him in the pecking order, that will beat him right out of the box. I'm a Cotto fan and think he is a great guy for the sport and a great, legendary fighter.


The 5 are(since I mentioned it)
Trout
Canelo
Lara
Molina
Kirkland

There may be more, like Angulo, who I think Cotto may beat if they fought, but those 5 are guys Cotto shouldnt go near.
