    Was at the first Khan vs Peterson fight . Once Khan starting running , I knew he was going to lose . You cant be the champ and run.

    I am not so sure about that Khan was more scared of those body shots than anything . Peterson needs to get his stamina up this fight , cause he was dragging late in the first fight . I believe Peterson won the first fight , but it was because of the point deductions ( which were valid ) not because he so much out boxed Khan

    Just about to say this. Watching those interviews from Fight Hype was painful. Son sounded like someone's granddad. "Basically ... basically ... basically ... Then I ... Then I ..."

    I want to say it's nerves, but he's been in the game damn near 20 years getting interviewed. I repeat myself when I get nervous, but I think he might need to get a brain scan in a hurry. This must've been what it was like to watch Sugar Ray Robinson's decline.

    Also Cotto going backward isn't a bad thing. He did his best work against Manny going backward, if I recall. By the time he started doing it, though, the fight was pretty much over.

    I was reading an article on Floyd today. I don't know why he won't say he's scared of Manny when he is. The only thing is, he feels his fear is valid because he thinks Manny's on steroids. But he's still afraid of him.

    not happening its impossible

    That is untrue, Mosely gave him a scare in their fight. If Mosely had stayed smart, you probably could of seen floyd going down. Remember, Mosely is a old kat and still had enough power to effect floyd when he did. And although this is waaay back in floyd's career, Zab confused floyd as well in the earlier rounds of their fight...just both two fighters were not smart enough to maintain their good fortunes..and floyd like the intelligent boxer he is, found a way to overcome that.

    not saying Cotto will floor him, but he has the power to.

    khan couldn't beat perterson on the inside and got hurt everytime peterson fought his way in.....thta's why he got on his wheels......


    he wasn't countering and out boxing peterson, and making him iss... he was running from the body attack and retreating everytime he got caught

    cotto can definitely make the fight interesting early......

    but as it gets deep in the fight......nature will take it's course

    Timothy Bradley Wants Mayweather After Pacquiao

    Top junior welterweight Timothy Bradley has grown increasingly confident (some would say cocky and boastful) about his June 9 fight with Manny Pacquiao, saying recently that the fight will be easy for him, and that he expects to win without much trouble.

    Now, Bradley tells Chris Robinson of the Examiner that after he's done with Pacquiao, he'll set his sights on Floyd Mayweather, and he feels that he's got Floyd figured out, too:

    "Floyd Mayweather is beatable too. He’s the next one on my list, after I take care of Pacquiao, I’m going to take care of Floyd Mayweather next. ... You can’t outbox Mayweather, you’ve just got to hit him anywhere you possibly can. You can’t swing at the head, you got to attack the body, stay close to him, and don’t let him work. And that’s how you beat Floyd Mayweather, you keep him busy. And if you keep him busy and you are able to elude the counter punches, you’re in the fight."

    As much as this may sound like a "blueprint" to beat Floyd, it also sounds kind of like saying, "Listen, here's how the Knicks can beat the Heat. Carmelo has to be better than he is and they can't let LeBron and Wade score many points."

    Rofl at this nigga thinking he could beat money may.. nigga your not even going to be able to get pass Pacroid.. I think all those headbutts he gaves out is starting to effect his brain...

    Cotto can punch, yes or no (whose has more, that's not for me to debate) the fact is, can box, has skill, and power.

    if Mosely at the age he fought F.M. at, can effect him, so can Cotto.
