    I don’t think people are angry with Cotto, I think there just disappointed that he isn’t going out against a big name. I don’t think anyone really wanted to see him get beat up by Golovkin in his final fight. He’d easily handle Khan or Brook and those would have been bigger names and better fights for him to bow out with so I think it’s more disappointment than hate (could be wrong)
    I was talking about this with a lad at work today, I don't have any problem with the fight, he could have took Khan he could have took Brook, whether he would have handled them easily is another question but they are good fighters and if he handles them easily then there will always be the question in Cottos head of 'how far can I push this' this is his swan song, he is bowing out, he is officially retiring, let him have an easy fight, the cunt deserves it, I believe him when he says he is done, finish on an exhibition and make a few quid.

    fair play to him

    Beating Khan or Brook wouldn’t mean much and wouldn’t prove he was ready to make a run against the main men (Andrade, Charlo, Lara) Khan hasn’t fought in years and the last time he did fight he was savagely knocked out and Brook is coming off of back to back stoppage defeats (they’re not elite fighters)

    Cotto has received far more breaks than majority of fighters who don't have a grand stage or gimme trinkets simply handed to them after 2 yrs absent. He's effectively been dictating own terms since losing to Trout with CW nonsense right down to team trying to take ol knobby knees Martinez braces ffs .

    I wish him the best but as of today Ali isn't ranked in top 15 of wbo 154. Hell he's not even top 15 at wbo 147.

    You have me in stitches! "Celebrate this great fighter, let him go out on his own terms." Yeah, are you gonna pay for that ? Would you PPV it? Nah, would you bollocks.
    He still wants good dollar for a soft finale, who pays for that little luxury.
    @powerpuncher hit the nail on the head. Fight who you want, but don't expect the big bucks because of what you USED TO BE.
    I like Cotto, this isn't anything against him. But this is Boxing, people are there to hurt each other, if you don't want that , don't have a last fight, just retire. That's when tragedies happen. No such thing as an easy touch when people are trying to knock you out!

    Yes there is. When you fight Conor McGregor.

    So Mickey Garcia says that in order to fight Cotto he had to sign a 4 fight deal with GBP. He said he would have done a two fight deal (To fight Cotto and Linares), but he didn’t want to get stuck into another promotional contract.

    It seems like that was the deal for the better fighters. GBP was hoping that they could sign a bigger name for multiple fights by allowing them to fight Cotto. It looks like it didn’t work out for them.

    Think Berto’s been raped enough. His promoter must feel more like a pimp

    Now the sick person in me would say that would have been a fun final fight to be made but glad it is not happening.

    I can't get passed the division jump and how viciously Vargas broke up Ali in first big test. They were both knocked around in last fights late rounds and Margarito had everyone from Doctor to cut man trying to give him an 'out' as he sat there on his stool tired. I just always wanted Cotto to go out as a man demanding entrée fee from a respectable opponent.

    I'm not really surprised with the way Roach and Cotto have been going the last few years with the catch weight demands and such.
