Boxing should respect Miguel Cotto
He loses a close-ish decision to Trout - a guy who has all the advantages - reach, height, strength & speed. Watching Cotto v Trout looked like a welter v middleweight. I don't think it's as bad as it first seemed.
If he can, Cotto should get back to 147lbs. How he can even talk about a move to 160lbs is beyond me. Or if he stays at 154lbs he needs to pick the right fights. Trout had all the advantages and was just too slippery.
Have 1 or 2 more and hang 'em up. He's a all-of-famer & one of the great fighters of the modern era.
I watch boxing because of champions like Cotto, how any neutral fan can dislike him is incomprehensible. That guy oozes class and he deserves a big win to go out on. A credit to boxing.
And congrats to Mr Trout!
