I know he's retired, but I think Felix Trinidad is the best Puerto Rican fighter out there and I hope he returns to the ring.

Without question. The greatest puerto rican boxer ever was Felix Trinidad. Its a shame he retired. He was World Champion in 3 different weight classes!!

Very impressive! There's no doubt he still has the potential to be the best, but you cant blame him for hanging up the gloves. Some fighters fight way too long in my opinion, destroying thier brain and their image. I wouldn't be surprisd to see him come back though.

Yes Trinidad WAS a great fighter with a awesome record but what about the fighters now.

Cotto in my opinion seems to be the best,i heard that after he won one of his fights everybody was given a day off work.

Miguel Cotto is a good Prospect. And I mean prospect. He has yet to prove himself against World Class Boxers. So I take a wait and see approach on him. As for Trinidad he was the best and if he decided tor return I think he would be the best again. Trinidad defeated the best fighters out there during his career and he KO'd most of them except for his loss to Hopkins.

"Killer" Cintron Update: Team Cintron says the welterweight prospect's progress has far surpassed their expectations and they are very happy with advances made in finalising their third week of the recovery trail.

It appears that the healing process has been an overall success thus far; all doubts concerning the success of the surgery, or more specifically, whether or not it would affect his devastating power, has been dismissed as far as Camp Cintron is concerned. Much of said progress being attributed to strength and conditioning coach John Schaeffer.
