I'm Puertorican and of course huuuge Miguel Cotto fan!
After watching Mayweather and Hatton fight last night I would not want Cotto to fight neither of them but for different reasons.
First on topic, Wow! What a fight, that was the ugliest most beautiful boxing fight I have watch in a while and I'm a regular boxing fan. It just
surprise me that Hatton ran out of gas, too me he was the ultimate endurance fighter in the world, at the same time he was talking way too much
punishment from FM when he was trying to come inside, specially late in the fight.
Round 8 was the fight right there, a tired fighter, anykind of fighter against FM is going to get hurt, because he's accurate and has power, and
Hatton just look like a punching bag in that round. After that round Ricky never recovered, he was done.
My hat off to FM, I hate his guts, but that guy is the best fighter I ever seen in my generation, and I have seen good ones but he's the best. He
just wins, ugly, pretty, boxing, fighting he gets it done.
Ricky, what can you say? He just know one direction, forward, the only way he's going to give is if you put him on the floor and that what it took,
but he's is outstanding and his career is not over, not by a longshot.
For Cotto his direction is patience, he can not beat FM right now and a fight with RH would make it a rebound fight for Hatton and I would not want to
face him in those conditions, probably fighting for his career. Cotto should do the mandatory fight, then take on Margarito, and later Williams, IF
and is a big IF he beats Williams then try to put something toghether with and older, rustier version on Floyd.
Great fight last night!
BTW! The ref did what best he could IMO, it was a hard fight to ref, but apparently not to score because all the judges had FM winning at the end of
the fight and it wasn't even close.
