COTTO has to lose 1 ****ing pound from his last weigh in and put up his vacant acquired belt...

COTTO is making $15 million, more than double than any fight he has had...

Why the hell are you homos crying and whining like biznatches????

If Miguel Cotto really wants a piece of the Pacquiao cake, he's either going to have to take it or let it be. What Cotto wants however is to take the cake and eat it as well.

It's a simple dilemma really. Cotto wants to fight Pacquiao for the money a fight with Boxing's cash cow presents but doesn't want to stake his WBO welterweight crown in the process.

Well, something's got to give. And if Cotto is truly as confident as he says in knocking Pacquiao out then I don't see why he has to be so stingy with his "ABC" belt.

Is it a matter of principle?

Cotto has volunteered to relinquish his belt if the WBO insists that he put it on the line against the Pacman. In Cotto's opinion, belts should not be accorded to fights fought at a catch-weight.

In reality however, such occurances have happened in the past. When Oscar De la Hoya fought Bernard Hopkins in 2004, they fought at a catch-weight of 158, two pounds below the middleweight limit with Hopkins' titles on the line as well as De la Hoya's. Sugar Ray Leonard won two titles against Donny Lalonde in 1988 at a catch-weight. The list goes on.

I am not saying Cotto is wrong in his stand but if he truly feels so all he has to do is "just say no".

Pardon me for that unnecessary childhood flashback, I was simply making a point. (you have to give me props though from finding that in the archives and getting a spanish translation at that for Cotto lol)

Let's face it, Pacquiao has the "aces" when it comes to the negotiating table by virtue of being the best pound-for-pound fighter in the sport and currently the biggest money fight in boxing. Well, Pacquiao has decided to play his cards and all Cotto has left to do is put up or shut up. Pacquiao has options, Miguel needs to pick his. In poker terms, he can go "all-in" or "fold". Enough of all this posturing. 145 is a fair catch-weight for both men. Cotto is definitely much bigger than Pacman. Two pounds isn't a lot of weight either.

So what's it gonna be Miguel?

If 2 pounds isn't much and doesn't make any difference then why make him go down 2 pounds?

You don't actually think logic will convince a fanatical fan.they're so clearly caught up in the hype of this circus. Would they actually listen to you??? Look at it... step back and think about this. Diamond belts and catch weights. Clearly Pac is the poster boy of boxing so they will hand him everything on a silver platter... excuse me diamond encrusted belt. It only makes him a ATG. He's not looking to see if he'll actually be considered as a G.O.A.T.
