    Miguel Cotto should not make the Hall of Fame

    We just can't overlook Margarito taking his heart

    Yes the 🤬 we can

    That 🤬 Margarito got caught with bricks in his gloves

    Margarito career and that fight in particular has a big ass asterik over it

    Who knows how long he had been using that 🤬

    Cotto went up against solid competition throughout his career

    And held his own for the most part

    🤬 bruises worse than a 🤬

    But hes allowed in

    Bruh thats a pure boxers fight

    No casual fan is going to be interested

    It still should be promoted. Since its not being promoted 🤬 are either fighter paying their promoters for. Cause to me right now the promoters not doing their jobs.

    🤬 yourself B

    if you really look at the fight.. he beat the 🤬 out of Margarito.. they beat the 🤬 out of each other.. but.. Margs had cement in his hand.. Miguel Cotto is a no doubt HOF'er .. anything you are saying about this fight is irrelevant in the grand scheme of a hall of fame career

    If Cotto makes it into the HOF or doesn't make it, I'm good with either decision.

    Margo ain't get caught with 🤬 in his gloves that fight so I ain't putting it on him.

    The 2nd fight was playing out just like the 1st one. Dude was about to quit

    What's his best win? When I think of Cotto, I think of superb matchmaking and an opportunist

    He fought a blind Margarito and called it redemption and if he really believe he cheated, I ain't mad at that but he was about to quit again

    Is Judah his best win?Clottey?

    Arum: HBO's Nelson is an Amateur, SHO's Espinoza is Competent!

    Earlier this year, Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum parted ways with HBO and signed an exclusive multi-year content agreement with ESPN.

    In various interviews, Arum has been very critical with the type of programming to hit HBO's airwaves in 2017.

    And who's to blame? Arum believes the cause of HBO's issues, when it comes to their boxing content, is the head of HBO Sports Peter Nelson, who was elevated to that position in December 2015 - following the departure of Ken Hershman.

    Arum spoke to Mike "Easy Work" Coppinger of Ringtv.com and explained why he's so unsatisfied with the current state of HBO's boxing content.

    “Look at his lineup of fights, what is he thinking? He has (Sergey) Kovalev against a guy nobody ever heard of (Vyacheslav Shabranskyy) and he has Cotto against a guy Jessie Vargas, who isn’t the biggest puncher in the world, just knocked out (Sadam Ali)," Arum told Coppinger.

    “That’s money they can use to put on really good fights. On December 16, he has an interesting fight (Billy Joe Saunders-David Lemieux), I think that’s a good fight. No one is arguing with that. It’s almost like that was an accident. Hey, we got a good fight. Hey, we made a mistake.”

    Arum explained that he believes Stephen Espinoza, who handles the boxing programming for Showtime, is a competent executive.

    He doesn't share the same opinion when it comes to Nelson.

    “I just think he’s not competent,” Arum continued. “They need professional people over at HBO. It’s a great network, they have great entertainment, but they have a guy who is running their sports department who has no experience and who is an amateur. He’s the kind of guy who thinks he’s smarter than everybody else."

    What really fueled Arum's fury, was Nelson's decision to go head to head with his highly anticipated fight on December 9, when Olympic champions Vasyl Lomachenko and Guillermo Rigondeaux collide in New York City, in an ESPN televised main event. HBO will televise a tripleheader that night, with Orlando Salido battling Miguel Roman in the main event.

    “The guy who’s the head of HBO Sports has really very, very little experience doing it,” Arum expressed. “I’ve had a lot of disagreements, for example, with (Showtime’s) Stephen Espinoza, but I consider him to be a very competent executive. Now, anybody who’s a competent executive, in my opinion, doesn’t waste money on a show like they’re planning to do on December 9 to put it up against a fight that every boxing fan wants to watch.

    “Why would you do that? Why in heavens would they do that? What is the reason for it? I can’t figure it out. I look it as being pathetic."

    Kind of disturbed that they want $607+fees for floor seats for the Spence vs Peterson fight.

    I would've bought mine but my wife wants to go and I wasn't planning on spending damn near $1300 for tickets.

    Boxing is the only sport my wife actually likes and watches. Taken her to basketball and football games she couldn't care 🤬 less. Taken her to boxing matches she actually pays attention only pics up her phone to take pics or video of the fight other than that she's paying attention.
