There is a reason he's used his bike in every fight where his opponent pressed... and all of his best performances are when his opponent tried to use their bike against him.
He's best when pressuring, but is ONLY comfortable doing it if his opponent is backing up. Otherwise.. he will find a home on his heels.
Not true. Cotto in his early fights did box a lot.
