I've been reading around, and hearing this guy say that he will sit down with certain guys (Martinez, Chavez, Alvarez, etc) after he's done with the Trout fight. Im not even sure if Cotto wins that fight, but my point is...why in the hell is this guy taking one hard fight after another, when he's in control of his career?
I'm usually against this, but Miguel should honestly make some of these BIG welterweights move up to fight him. Let's be real, these guys dont have to be do-gooders and make 154 on the head, 150 or 152 is perfectly fine.
I only like when free agents exercise the power to make their own decisions, especially when they're a draw like Cotto. Again, no need for him to take one hard fight after another, when he can make Canelo's punk ass fight somebody of note, who's an able-bodied fighter. Canelo's not a punk, maybe Oscar's the blame for making it seem that way.
Dude gives some of these fighters waaay too much respect, when they still have a bit of work to do. He's getting older, so again, he can chill a bit with these hard fights, and make these young guys actually work for something in the sport.
Half of those mofos just sign on the dotted line of a promotional company, and hope to get weaseled to the top by fighting dead bodies, or incompetent competition (oxymoron).
With Manny's opponent selection being controlled by Bob, and Mayweather being the undecided, money-driven, opportunist that he is...Cotto should put his foot down and run shit, until something changes on both of their ends.
No need to be the nice guy so soon and give these subpar fighters a chance at glory. If you think about it, the older "name" fighters, usually get fed to the young hungry fighters any damn way, especially when the older fighter has lost his edge. So why not stay active, and make your own big fights until you lose your step, and THEN give the young guys a chance?
