I have Cotto-Mayorga on showtime ondemand right now and just saw the quit again. And there has been no x-rays or nothing to prove that broken hand from what I've heard so far. Which brings me to my question.

What are some of the biggest quits in boxing without there being a knockdown right before it?

Biggest quit has to be Duran's famous 'no mas' against Leonard.

Agreed, thats the Daddy.


Victor Ortiz was Knocked down vs Maidana but his quit was still pretty shameful

And of course there is quiting without quiting like fighters lying they cant see with a lil cut and so on

A lot of Cotto's earlier fights ended with the poor guy in the other corner just saying **** this and quiting after taking a tanking

Duran/Leonard has too be the biggest as mentioned

The way Ortiz quit against Maidana and the fact that he just admitted he quit afterwards was pretty shocking

Im sure Cotto fans were pretty shocked when their boy got on his nees for margarito too

As expected Leonard-Duran has been mentioned. But yeah, that's the most unbelivable 'No mas' ever probably.

Liston quitting on his stool in Liston-Ali 1 was pretty huge too.

I've heard people say his corner stopped it as well as accounts of him quitting, unsure.

Alexander vs Bradley of more recent times.

Cotto didnt quit his body did, he took a helluva lot of punishment and u could feel his last burst of punches was him completely emptying the tank. He did his fans proud. Where as Ortiz for example appeared still in the fight and had energy in him left.

Tszyu not coming out for the last against Hatton was surprising

Does anone believe Sonny was lit in his withdrawl or was it a case of he knew he was in with a better man and couldnt win?

I was shocked too see Cotto take a knee too be honest,probably because i didnt expect Margarito too break him down like he did

Ortiz flat out quit and it was sad too see,and saying he doesnt want too get beaten up i was like wtf! your in the wrong sport then buddy

I think Tsyzu realized he wasnt going too get a decision that night,also realized he didnt have a sledgehammer in which too stop Hatton with and probably decided his old body had had enough punishment for one night,i was slightly surprised too though as it was only one round,but 3 minutes can be a long time in a boxing ring when things arent going your way

Vitali quitting to the much smaller Chris Byrd with only 1 round to go comes to my mind.

Not the biggest but Andrew Lewis vs Dalton, Lewis ahead on all cards quit because he had to take a ****.

Quitali is the obvious answer but his little bro shouldnt be overshadowed.

Julio Cesar Chavez quit in fight 2 with Frankie Randall and also in his rematch with Oscar Delahoya.

Oscar quitting vs Pacquiao.

Tyson quit after taking a one sided hiding to Kevin McBride.

I wanna say that Arguello "quit" in his second fight vs Pryor. He just sat there and refused to get up because he was being totally outworked.

In an interview he said he was fine and coherent and while he was sitting there it seemed like an eternity for the ref to count to 10 and Arguello was saying to himself "Just hurry up and get to 10 already, I am done."

Would you guys consider that a quit?

He did quit. He adknowledges he quit.

He was out of his depth in his 4th weight class Vs one of the best Jr Welterweights of all time. He adknowledged that too.

I saw an interview - before Chavez-Taylor? - where he said something like I realized he was the better fighter and accepted it.

i give The Bull a pass. He shouldnt have even been in the ring, he needed to stay in rehab to be honest. Guy had a nervous breakdown IN THE RING. Lewis didnt make him quit imo, but his own demons.

I don't really think some of the ones mentioned are quitting as the word applies here. Duran quit against Leonard. Oscar quit the fight against Pac, but not as what is being implied here. He was beaten. As good as if he had been knocked out. To me, that is not quitting as what Duran did. That is just losing a fight and knowing it and not being able to win.

Same with Cotto I think. He was a beaten fighter. He didn't quit. He had been dropped, was getting beaten up and had nothing left to give and go on with. When a fighter has given it his all and has nothing left and no way to win, I don't see that as quitting. If he had done that in the fourth round when he probably realised he was in for a long night but still winning the rounds, then I could see it. However, he had tried everything he could and had lost.

That's what it comes down to. He had lost the fight already. Was he meant to stand back and get knocked down again, and again, and again until he got knocked out for the count? What exactly is the point when you've lost the fight and have nothing left with which to win? He had no power, no legs and was getting beaten up bad.

Ahh, ok. Well he pretty much said he didn't want any more of Pryor at the point he took the count.

If you take Benny's definition, which I can see where he's coming from, Arguello didn't actually quit.

But what he did do was adknowledge he lost the fight and wasn't going to win the fight, thus took the 10 count when he could have got up if he wanted. But what would be the point? For Pryor to just pound his skull in? Because that's what would have happened. But Arguello could have got up, he just knew he wasn't going to win. Plus the first fight was much closer than this fight, in this fight he definitely wasn't going to win on the cards aswell.

Arguello just couldn't hurt him, he hit him with his hardest shots and he just could not hurt Pryor and that really effected him in the fight.

At 140, Arguello was out of his depth, atleast against an ATG Jr Welter in Pryor. And that's why he wept after the fight, because he wanted to be that guy who won 4 titles in 4 divisions but he just couldn't do it.

This is the truth. Cotto (and others) had nothing left and a loss was inevitable.

Pryor's trainer Carlos Panama gave him some dope in the waterbottle the round prior to that. His victory over Arguello is not valid it's tainted.

Dundee stopped that fight. Even fans who hated Ali wanted it stopped. It was a travesty, and if Ali ran his mouth it was just to sell tickets.
