No, I don't.

Foreman's most significant punches came early on, I think it was round two or three, before his knee went out. So no, he wasn't getting smacked up by a one legged man. Foreman's worn a brace before, but he wasn't a one legged man going into the fight because of it.

Obviously this fight didn't show whether or not he can take pressure now, he fought a guy who's the exact opposite of a pressure fighter.

He's D improved a little. He wasn't a whole lot and since he wasn't putting all his weight over his front foot and leaning over, he won't be as open to uppercuts.

This was a Top Rank "Event" so of course there was no OST they wouldn't even allow Foremans corner to throw in the towel after his knee was clearly ****ed up. The highlights are funny as well from HBO as well...

I think maybe you're being a little harsh on Cotto because the TS is maybe being a little too positive about Cotto's performance.

Yuri's knee didn't give out until the 7th round and he was still losing that fight 5 rounds to 1 (2 if you wanna be generous). Cotto's defense has never really been the greatest, but at this point that's not something that will get fixed overnight if not ever. In comparison to Cotto's last few fights, he did look much better.

if Foreman used xylocaine for his right leg before the fight he probably would have saved his zero

I wasn't joking about his defense not improving at all, he still looks very easy to hit and ineffective when he cannot get set to punch. Any real fight even with a guy like Spinks would be very difficult being that he cannot fight going backwards and is so eay to hit even a guy like Spinks would be a nightmare for him at this point. As I said it's not Cotto's fault the ref insisted the fight continue until Cotto scored a KO, but his performance against a one legged man is his fault and showed that he has improved really at all outside of his jab which wasn't a real huge issue anyway, he's always been effective with it.
