Cotto vs. Saul Alvarez: Is there still a demand for this fight?

kiko

it would be very sad to see cotto take another beatting .. cotto is a nice guy but please not more cotto ….

kiko

there is no need for canelo to fight cotto. ater his loss to margarito cotto was expossed and has never been the same. maybe cotto should retire. there is nothing left for him to prove. he is taking way to many beattings . please cotto no more…

Trout is a bum

Canelo is the better fighter, and the better name; with a much more earning potential then Trout, who needs to stand in line. A Trout will not generate much money. Golden boy is making the right decision here, Canelo, and Cotto can attract a bigger crowd, and money, they both deserve it. Mexican and Puerto Ricans will make this fight a big event. Arriva la raza!!!

upper cut

Trout vs canelo on showtime or hbo… Canelo vs cotto definately a pay-per-view fight. You be the judge!! The fans don’t care if trout is underfeated… He is boring and no one will spend their hard earn money watching canelo chasing trout. These days to hell with the belts.. its all about good exiting fighters. Canelo vs cotto all day!!!

If Cotto Vs. Alverez is made, it will be a sad day for Cotto fans. Please rewatch the Trout/Cotto fight. Trout was hurting him by continuing to go to the body of the aging former champ….and going to the body is Canelos bread and butter. I truly want Cotto to continue fighting, but he should NOT fight Canelo next. Set Cotto up with some softer opposition so that he can gain confidence. Three losses in a row would be devastating for him. DONT LET IT HAPPEN!

fight trout…cotto is my favorite fighter and i don’t want to see him take this fight and get hurt…and this what is going to happen if he fights canelo…why is it good enough for mayweather to fight guerrerro and not good for canelo to fight trout

Most response rather not see Cotto vs Canelo. If you folks like boxing, this is 1 match that should be made. The money is right, the match up is right, the rivalry between Puerto Rico & Mexico has always paid off and 2 big names in the sport will likely put up a good fight. 1 will be favored and 1 will be crowned. I feel any 1 of them could win the fight, no matter how bad people put down cotto or doubt him, same wit canelo, calling him a safe fighter. This will be a push up for boxing.

Yeah Cotto has been beat, but the man has done some big things in his career. So who knows whats next, he could just domalish his nex opponent. This is boxing, anything can go down.

Cotto is near the end of his career. But he can still be dangrous. He has experience and the heart to fight. Not many fighters have put up great fights like Cotto. Many have, but many havent. I say Canelo will be favored, but you shouldnt count Cotto out. It would be a great fight all around.

@The Real and True Boxing Fan:

Your article although hard to read was mostly true. I am a Puerto Rican with a huge admiration for Cotto along with fighters similar to his style. As you said they are usually mexican fighters… I do disagree with you in a couple of things.. First you made no mention of Margarito and his handwraps.. At this point this is common knowledge. Second you said that in the second fight with Margarito that he looked the same.. No way… he outperformed Margarito… by the 10th he was up ready to fight and was sticking to his game plan… other than that you are right. Canelo is younger and more powerful.. the old cotto would have picked him apart.. this new cotto can win but doesnt have the stamina for it.. I still would love to see the fight but cotto most likely loses… the great miguel cotto is not that great physically anymore.. However he is game… he doesnt really care who he fights… he just fights.. i think Canelo is the same way but his handlers get in the way… if you had a cash cow you would hold on too… however i think that he should get more credit from his handlers.. He is actually a decent bull.. i think at his age and with his power he could bum rush alot of fighters.. him versus thurman would be epic.. I think thurman would win that cuz he seems to have a fight til i drop mentality.. talk about a bull.. but he is also inexperienced so it would make a great fight

If they still fight,I’ll lose a chunk of love for this sport.

It’s only right for Canelo to fight Trout.

Their basically giving all the fans a big F YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Boxing is on the last strings of death

i don’t mind seeing this fight on the undercard of floyd-guerrero but it doesn’t belong as a stand alone main event on a ppv card. canelo-cotto should fit the pattern golden boy has stayed with concerning canelo’s foes. an ex-champ on the decline. but i believe golden boy is nervous making his one cause cotto still got fight left in him and austin trout was just a bad style matchup for him. they don’t wanna ruin canelo’s september date with floyd so they’ll go with an easier matchup. my dark horse would be james kirkland. he’s still a top ten 154 fighter with a lot of defensive holes that canelo can exploit.

Canelo vs coto will be good. I’d love to see Canelo destroy coto.

Cotto is nowhere near the fighter that he was prior to the Pacquiao fight and does not have the desire to go all out to win anymore. He is a shot fighter and is only looking for paydays!!! He needs to take a look as his career and decide if he wants to continue to damage his legacy. It’s time for Miguel to call it a day! He does not have the balls or the fire to die in the ring to win…

Cotto vs Canelo is the only fight out there that makes sense. You can say whatever you want about Cotto but take a second and think about Canelo’s record. Cotto fought everyone. How about Canelo? Fact of the matter is Canelo don’t want part of Trout, and I dont blame Canelo. I think Trout would be him and then what. Let see how Canelo looks against Cotto and then talk.

I think Cotto is still a much bigger attraction than Trout and beating him would still count for more than beating Trout at this point despite Austin beating Miguel. I would to see Cotto vs Canelo

trout beat cotto in the same way bradley beat pacquiao: cotto got much better with is trainer diaz and he look sharp and energetic again : he fought a hard 12 rounds fight vs austin trout who has a very good plan but fail to stick with it couse he’s hed was wobling bad from cotto punches. he was run , run , run and try to hold cotoo arms to avoid to get connected from the right strait of cotto. i did not score these fight close but to me was a hard earned fight that miguel manage to win my score was 115 to 113 for cotto. miguel was the harder and faster out there , trout was connected with a couter puches harder and consistently. cotto vs alvarez is already a done deal. trout will fight and lose from some bum like angulo , ishida or kirland.

Boxing has always been a business!!! I would love cotto to fight Canelo and get a good payday$$$$lol

Resist N Smoke

I feel bad for Canelo , seems like the guy cant get a fight, he was suppose to fight Kirkland, Paul williams, Victor Ortiz etc etc, all the fights that people would of given him more credit for, and they all keep falling apart for one reason or another.

Canelo has spoken openly about wanting Martinez, Floyd and Cotto. i would argue tha with the exception of Cotto, Martinez and Floyd are his most dangerous picks, due to experience over his youth.

So the guy is calling out the best, but who knows what his cheesy promoters got in mind, will probably see him fight kirkland or angulo.

cypresschill

people dont realise that there were alot of people had cotto winning against trout and some also had it a draw , so it was actually quite close , i think cotto still got the goods to win another title

Posted January 7, 2013  


Anto

The writter of this article always show some kind of hate for Miguel cotto Now cotto is the best fight for canelo

Posted January 7, 2013  


chipster

WHAT I ADMIRE ABOUT COTTO IS, HE WOULD TAKE THE CANELO FIGHT, COS HE`S A WARRIOR AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN, SO IS SHANE MOSLEY, LOOK AT HIS LAST 10 FIGHTS THEY WERE ALL HARD FIGHTS. IF SHANE DOES WIN A VERSION OF THE 147LB TITLE THIS YEAR THERE`S A COUPLE OF BIG PAYDAYS THERE FOR HIM BUT HE WILL PROBABLY CALL IT A DAY AGAIN LATER IN 2013, AS WILL MARQUEZ AND PACMAN AND MAYBE COTTO. ITS A SHAME WHEN YOUR FAVOURITE FIGHTERS GET OLD AND RETIRE, BUT THOSE GUYS ABOVE HAVE LEFT US WITH LOADS OF GREAT FIGHTS TO WATCH. BUT AS FOR FLOYD MAYWEATHER`S FIGHT LEGACY, I CAN`T SEE MYSELF WATCHING ANY OF HIS OLD FIGHTS.

Posted January 7, 2013  


a.l.

cotto vs alvarez has everything needed to bring in great ppv numbers. The fan base both fighters bring, the rivalry, the old warrior vs the young gun, cotto’s last shot at a title and redemption for his last two loses, this may b cotto’s last fight. love to see it, personaly, I’ve got my money on cotto.

Posted January 7, 2013  


Over the top

Why would we want to see a fight that knows the result??? That’s bs! Cotto is just a stepping stone. Canelo need to fight trout! Wtf? Why is Canelo fighting the loser for? Cotto’s been ruin since cheato mess him up. Man, I don’t get it. Cotto should be in show time or espn or something. No ppv for sure! What’s worst, Floyd needs to put Canelo on his cards so they can sell more cuz Guerrero doesn’t have much fans. This is why boxing sucks! Put Floyd with Sergio Canelo vs trout Guerrero vs Rios broner vs gamboa.

Posted January 7, 2013  


Nate2011

There’s still a reasonably luke-hot like demand for an Alvarez vs Cotto match, just not a completely high demand giving Cotto’s recent loss to A.Trout who I most certainly want to see in a big money matchup soon. (Perhaps Trout vs K-9 Boundrage) I just feel that with Cotto being on the receiving end in his last fight that Alvarez-Cotto is just now reduced slightly to a co-event as opposed to the main event and if they make this fight as such to the Mayweather vs Guerrero (main) event then it should still help bring in some major #’s as far as PPV buys is concerned.

Posted January 7, 2013  


RNS

in a interview in the build up to to the Trout fight Cotto was in tears talking about his love for his family and retiring. Cotto looked like a man semi retired before that fight and then fought like one. GBP are determined to make this fight for some reason even though it is clear most boxing fans would rather see Canelo face Trout. it is a joke fight involving a once good but now faded fighter against a complete joke of a world champion.

Posted January 7, 2013  


Alucard 400

it would sell better than Trout, who nobody knows, even though it’s doesn’t mean as much since Cotto has been losing.

let’s see how Canelo does against Cotto, and compare him to how Trout did.

i mean, if you’re willing to give Trout credit for beating Cotto, then i guess you will give Canelo credit for beating Cotto too.

Boricua Bomber

The sad thing is that even at his actual state Cotto will be a the best Canelo has faced since he was gifted that belt, really sad.

Posted January 7, 2013  


Torbero

From a stylistic prospective the Cotto fight is more appealing. Their styles will make for a good action packed fight and the fans would be entertained and I believe happy with that matchup. From a sporting prospective, Trout maybe deserves it more since he just beat Cotto, but his style against that of Canelo would make for a real boring fight.
The problem I see is that although I believe Canelo beats Trout, he would have to do it in a very slow and methodical way that will leave fans questioning if Canelo is really that good. No matter what we say, the Trout fight is a no win situation for Canelo. If he beats him everyone will point to Trouts lack of experience and good quality opposition (other than Cotto). And if by miracle Trout wins, everyone will say that Canelo was overrated and a hyped fighter.
Cotto and Canelo will trade in the middle of the ring and both will probably be hurt at some point in the fight. While the Trout fight will be boring with Canelo chasing Trout around while he boxes away.
What is the right fight at this point to set up fans to be excited about a Canelo vs. Mayweather? I’ll leave that up to you.

i rather see a fight with canelo and cotto then see on with canelo and trout. trout may have beaten cotto but he didn’t gain any fans from that win. boxing fans are not entertained with how trout fights. he didn’t want to go toe to toe with cotto and give the fans what they wanted to see. he cared more about just winning the fight instead of entertaining the boxing fans. trout has no fan base compared to cottos and he wont bring anywhere near the amount of money cotto can.

Posted January 7, 2013

Absolutley not..Cotto has been done since Margarito 2…Unless he wants another loss

Posted January 7, 2013

Cotto should retire already.
