-deepwater :

This fight shouldn't even have a press conference. cotto should be ashamed and keep this farce away from the fans. delvin will jab for two rounds then get put out. if it is any way close, cotto is done as a top guy.

-Carmine Cas :

Harsh DW damn lol, but I guess you're right. I don't like Cotto's choice of Roach

-brownsugar :

Mayweather said that the moment you fall off the top rung the fans networks and sponsors will keep kicking you until you stay down. I'll never forget Cotton vs Judah...classic Cotto at his best. I'm looking forward to seeing if Roach can bring back "Savage" Cotto..... the Version of Cotton who went missing after the f I r s t Margarito fight. But I fear that Cotto may be lost forever. Rodriquez will be watching Cotto very closely...searching for every crack ..every fissure...any weakness he can turn to his advantage...I dont expect Delvin to go away quietly.

-the Roast :

I'm with deepwater for the most part here. If Cotto can't KO Rodriguez he's done at the top. That being said I think its an unwise choice of opponent. Devin will jab and move, maybe even run to try to get Cotto into the late rounds. Hard to look good against someone like that.

-Radam G :

Wow! The Roast, "Cotto can't KO Rodriguez." Delvin has been stopped once when he was ill. He shouldn't ever fought fan-thrilla fighter. Cotto should win easily. But maybe you should forget about the knockout. I don't see him getting it. Holla!

-amayseng :

Wow there's a press conference for everything now days. I'll be arriving in west palm beach for thanksgiving this year I expect a press conference awaiting. No shame in degrading physically as cotto has. However he better make some adjustments if he loses his fight he'll be finished.

-Radam G :

Hehehehe! A-Seng, you have on your comedy hat nowadays. Holla!
