Man, I hate this. I feel like I loose more than a fight. I will say one thing.... Mayweather represents the bad winning over good, he is the arrogant, stupid, bad mouth one and he wins....???? S**t!!!!!!!! This is like bad movie you hate to pay for it.... what a hard blow to my chin and pride.... the worst thing is we don't have other boxers coming up who can give us the standing we are use to in Puerto Rico. .NO juanma, no wilfred vazquez, no Ivan Calderon, no nothing exciting new. That hurts the most. For Mayweather and uncle Roger... I truly wish them to go to jail if they deserve it. Bad should not win... in this ring or any ring. To those who will make fun or have a parade on Miguel's name... remember one thing... he always give you excitement win or loose.. you have never seen Cotto in a boring fight, when you talk about heart and determination, the face of Miguel Cotto will always come to mind and when you talk about a tru warrior who never backed down from a fight... well, that's Miguel Cotto.
