i agree with you all.
an athlete should not be allowed to use any type of drug before or during a fight.
a champion takes on all challengers. in the case of boxing, the champion should clean out his weight class. a great fighter moves up in weight and
challenges the bigger guys. like roberto duran for example; he was a beast at light weight. he had to rely on his boxing skill at middle weight and
higher to compete. a good guy and a great fighter. another example: henry armstrong; he almost had half of the belts. he owned three of the eight and
almost had a fourth. he ended a middleweight fight to a draw and failed to get the fourth title. everytime floyd says he's the greatest of all time
the words make me cringe.
one thing i like about miguel cotto is his willingness to fight all challengers. win or lose he earned my respect as a fan and as a pay per view
subscriber. i will order the fight because i like cotto and respect his competitive spirit.
