60 is 10% of that.... it's a lot of money.



still, though, you've got people who want to see him knocked unconscious?
that's a bit much. i'd be devastated after seeing miguel cotto out and on the ground like that. it's miguel f#cking cotto. show some respect.

I make 75K a year and $50/60 for Cotto-Trout and a bunch of no names is not a good deal. **** I would not have a problem paying like $30 for this shiet.

You know what is really ****ed up? Imagine I pay the $60 for the HD PPV and then the replay is shown on showtime the very next day as they do when they show fights for free.

Damn, ya'll been paying for Top Rank and PR Best JuanMa and Calderon PPVs forever and now get salty because Cotto has a damn business to run.

And you people are acting like you are the only ones feeling a pinch

Everyone going to the actual fight live have to pay the same fees to watch Cotto/Trout as we did to watch Cotto/Margarito II. But for me, I understand. He has his fighters now that he has to promote and it'll help him cover his costs. And if I have to pay a little more so he can showcase new talent, then so be it. I'll be there riding, whether you fair weather fans ride or not

Larry and Pac-Boy know what they're talking about...I agree with EVERYTHING they said!!

I feel where the TS is coming from though...I fully understand his complaint..but I wouldn't hate Cotto for this...it is what it is!!
