Miguel Cotto's resume speaks for itself, he's fought more guys at the top of their game than anyone I can remember. Winkys picture still in dictionary next to under hyped. But I'm with you on your point, and we are rapidly running out of the old guard. MMA does the same, maybe even worse, unless you think Ken Shamrock still has one great fight in him.
