Another good reason not to include the WBO in the roster of recognised belts. Seriously, if you're a Frank Warren fighter and you can string together ten good wins it makes you an automatic WBO mandatory.

It's not going to matter Cotto is going to punish Jennings and stop him in 5.

With the exception of Jose Luis Cruz, I don't think I've ever seen a more padded record than Jennings'.

I don't have any problem with Cotto taking a confidence building fight right now, but Jennings is a bit rediculous. And the fact that it would be for a belt is comical.

Salvador, I agree with you... but then again cotto has always said "Im just a boxer and I will fight who ever my company chooses" which is actually one thing I respect about him, he never dodges fights no matter how easy or bad they could be.

Rumor is now, That Cotto-MArgarito II may happen in Feb! I hope this isn't true!, Cotto needs a tune up fight
