Bob Arum of Top Rank, promoter of Miguel Cotto, was asked after Cotto-Margarito 2 about how Cotto was able to have such success rebounding from his loss two years ago to Manny Pacquiao.

“Because he lost to Pacquiao. That’s no disgrace,” Arum said. “The first four rounds with Manny, if you remember, were touch and go, and then Manny overwhelmed him with his speed. So he lost the fight. That didn’t mean the end of Miguel Cotto.

“Obviously he’s a very good fighter, and so we gave him a big fight in Yankees Stadium with Yuri Foreman, and then he fought Mayorga on a very successful pay-per-view, and now Margarito. I didn’t do anything to build him back up. We just provided him with the type of fights that were appropriate.

“There were three knockouts, but he had plenty of knockouts before. He’s a terrific fighter. He’s really one of the top fighters of this era. Make no mistake about it — I think he’s a sure shot to be a Hall of Famer one day.”

[QUOTE=WESS]Cotto looked good fighting Margarito.... Cotto has been looking good because he's been fighting bums. Much to the same with Pac. Once you put them in with solid fighters they look bad.[/QUOTE] You know me on here for a while now Wess and you know that I have always been adamant abo...

People need to stop making excuses and give Miguel Cotto his props. I had a question mark over him going into the rematch but he changed his game plan and fought a smarter fight. I read Margarito fans saying how Cotto should thank Pacquiao for his eye being messed up but that's BS because the D...

[QUOTE=hbonnie21]MY POINT EXACTLY lol he hasnt beaten anyone thats ranked lol[/QUOTE] Yuri Foreman or "the peg legged Jew" that you two morons are referring about was ranked in the top 10 by most credible boxing sites (ring, espn, boxrec, etc), a title holder @ 154 and undefeated. Mayorga and ...
