My friend replied to me saying that he thought that I was a “hardcore fight fan” and he could not believe that I had no intention to watch it live. Read the rest of this entry »

cotto6788By Dan Ambrose: If trainer Freddie Roach is going to be the one that makes the decision on who WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32 KOs) fights next, it’s not going to be WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.
