The only guys crying about Cotto and Chad are the boxing fans that post on forums like this and the East. Posting on sites like this is very fun and at times can be informative and at times you meet with some great posters, but we as posters do not hold any weight when it comes to rankings, win credits, or ATG status. We are just semi trolls and semi hard core fans of boxing that like to express our opinions from time to time. Nothing we say matters, it's just fun to read and past the time with.
As for nobody complaining about Dawson and weight drain? I sure as **** am reading a LOT more complains about Dawson being drained then when Cotto fought and lost to Pac.
but there is no complaining from the same people who slam Pacquiao over draining opponents. This is the hypocrisy, the so called people who say they are not pacquiao haters but always blame him for draining fighters are giving Ward full credit, I thought they were against fighters coming down, if Pacquiao were Ward and he fought a guy coming down in weight they would say its a BS fight. But for some reason Ward is okay in their book, just not Pacquiao. They would even discredit the win saying the guy pac fought was dead and say the guy didnt throw a jab, and find all excuses, but with Ward his win was spectacular and he took Dawsons jab away even though Dawson never threw much punches or jabs in that fight.
