Seriously. Trinidad needs to go away.

i wouldnt want to see him (tito) trying to cotend for a title or even in the run for it but i see no problem with specialty fights like this... i think its an interesting fight... tito actually got with jones early in their fight... i can see this being a good scrap...

Who knows what to believe these days. Cotto moving to 154 is kinda desperate. He gets out-punched and pushed around at 147. The names at 154 might not be that of 147 but those dudes are just bigger and Cotto cant compete at just 5'7''.

Cotto KO 5

Trinidad is shot!

But a prime Tito KO's Cotto viciously...

This.

But the article was just a joke for "El dia de los santos innocentes" its like the spanish version of april fools.

I wouldn't mind seeing Trinidad come back against someone he can beat. The problem is that he has too much heart to just come back against any old schmuck.

The only thing Tito should be entering these days is some form of food eating contest.

i agree... but i think a fight with trinidad would be safe and an entertaining scrap... personally id like to see him take THESE kinda fights or retire... he's starting to get hurt in there...

God, if the first fight wasn't shitty enough.. I personally don't want to see DLH in anything, some poster said it best, the guy lost every big fight he was ever in.

Cotto did his country proud. Sad, Cotto's career was cut short but he should retire, he was really beat down bad in his last fight.

I disagree Fitz on both fights...you know I'd say Oscar proved to be more skilled fighter of the two against Tito..but the fact is he faded and did nothing in the last rounds of the fight and let Tito outwork him. It happened again in the Mosley rematch - GREAT start but let Mosley comeback later in the fight. I had both 114-114. But I remember that the best you could give Mosley in that rematch was a draw. To me it was either a draw or a DLH win.

Oscar does have some big wins.. I'd say his wins over Chavez are pretty big even though Chavez was past his prime. He also beat Whitaker in a close fight that could've been a draw. But his win over Quartey was serious BS now THAT was a robbery. I had 7-4-1 clearly for Quartey.

But he beat several good champions...Genaro Hernandez, Rafael Ruelas, Jesse James Leija, Arturo Gatti, Fernando Vargas, John John Malinga, Hector Camacho, Javier Castillejo, Ricardo Mayorga....

Great fighter who will be in the Hall Of Fame...

He fought everyone too...from the p4p kings of the 90's (Chavez, Whitaker, Trinidad)...to the P4P kings of the 2000's (Mayweather, Mosley, Pacquiao)....and the fucking legend that is BERNARD HOPKINS!!! (who has probably P4P in both decades)

I still consider him a greater fighter than the likes of Calzaghe...just my opinion..

I agree that Oscar fought everyone but I think he will be in the hall of fame due to his popularity rather than his accomplishments in the ring.

Something has always seemed off about him though. He is like a comic book villain to me always smiling and upbeat in public but behind closed doors he is probably plotting his next evil plan to kill superman and enslave millions Lex Luthor style.

Yeah but ultimately it simply comes down to who won more rounds not who looked better in the 12th? I really thought Oscar won more rounds than Trinidad in that fight.

Did I like his strategy towrads the end? Nope but I still felt he won the fight. I felt he edged the 2nd Mosley fight as well (and I'm a bigger fan of Shane than Oscar).

The Quartey fight is tougher for me to score than you. I've watched it a few times and keep getting a different score everytime!! cray.gif

Agree DLH won the Trinidad fight.

Disagree he won Mosley 2. He was in bad shape at the end of that fight. Mosley gave him a beating to the body. Fans often complain that judges dont score body punching all that well, in that fight they actually did and many people had a problem with it.
