Yes I remember that.
There was a lot of pressure on Cotto to put the belt on the line as the fight was billed as 7th title in as many weight divisions for Manny.
Not just that but if he didnt take the catch weight he wouldnt had got the Pac fight and he wouldnt re upped with Arum. Remember Cotto golfing and shyt with Oscar?
