By Dan Ambrose Ricardo Mayorga says he’s going to retire WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto this Saturday night at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

By Dan Ambrose: When promoters plan out fights they sometimes overlook opponents due to their age.

By Dan Ambrose: WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (35-2, 28 KO’s) probably has no business fighting in the junior middleweight division, because at only 5’7″, he’s little more than the typical height for lightweights.

By Dan Ambrose: WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (35-2, 28 KO’s) has lost two out of his last five fights, and you can make a good argument that Cotto should have lost three out of his last fight bouts, because one of his victories was a questionable 12 round decision over Joshua Clottey in […]
