People wonder why Cotto can sell out MSG jerking off? Its because the guy doesn't let his fans down. He gives every person that has even a little love for the sport a big smile. Not to mention he is a great family man. Miguel is a no non sense/bull**** guy and I have never respected a fighter more than I respect him.
Cmon man you gotta check that Hero stuff... You putting him, a boxer on a high pedestol.. Great family man? I thought great family man would work out marriage troubles to keep his wiz and kids togather.
He is a solid fighter who is a class act, but on the real..hero status? Also there have been fighters who fight with big gashes or swollen foreheads as well.. they could have stopped, but they kept plugging away till the ref had to stop it.. (Vitali,MAB,Vargas,etc)
