Man, its hard to take some of those cats in Mexico seriously. No disrespect to anyones culture or country. This was just an observation and perception. I know its a culture thing, but their entrance music many times, sounds like carnival music. I know these guys have a rich history of fighters, but I cant imagine coming from the school of hard knocks and going into battle with that music. It was very evident in the Mares/Gonzales fight. I know everyone doesnt wanna come in to "Mama Said Knock You Out," but damn.

To a degree, I agree with you. It's hard to fathom getting amp'd for combat, while listening to Speedy Gonzalez's "Mexican Hat dance" music. That being said, ever notice how these guys are singing along to their song, with "taking a shower" like pride? That alone is enough for me to know, that stuff means something to them, far BEYOND how it makes them look.

A lot of Mexican music has a strong German influence which is why I can't take it. They love it so, I can't hate. I actually get tired of the sorry ass rapper who you never heard of walking guys down the ring. And the ones that are known, you can't understand a damn thing that they are saying. The live music from the Mexicans actually sounds the same to me, but again, I am not hating. Being different makes this world great.

Canelo should come out with 'Into the lungs of hell' by Megadeth, since Dave Mustaine is probably his real father

Hence, the reason I said, these guys are singing w/ "in the shower" like behavior (translation= with pride and w/o shame). I'm not passing judgement....not in the least.

This.

I'm Mexican but I don't really like the music, but most of their songs are about drugs guns fighting and hard living. So maybe if you guys new what it meant like the fighters do it would be your cup of tea.

Cotto and Lucas usually come out to bad ass songs tho, cotto probably comes out to the most intense. When he came into the marg rematch to seven nation army I got goosebumps.
