I think it'll happen, and I think it'll be ***ing awesome.

If Bojado doesn't go on another Whopper binge.

What do y'all think?

Cheers,

I'll bite. Bojado would have a fair chance of beating Cotto. A year from now,
if he is still fighting, Bojado will have learned the value of conditioning,
and won't be swinging in weight anymore. He will continue developing and
harnessing his raw talent. Sure Miguel would be the favorite, but as of yet all
he has shown us is that he can KO "contenders" with no power who stand in front
of him all night. Even a fat ass Bojado doesn't fit into that category.

The fight that I want to see made soon is Cotto - Weis. I don't like that
little fly swatting Argentinian any more than the rest of you, but if Cotto
looks impressive, knocks him out, or even just looks "above average" against
Weis, he will have answered some important questions. Cotto is in a tough spot.
He cant make 35 comfortably, or maybe even at all, and 40 is simply LOADED with
super talents. As good as Cotto is, I don't see him beating anyone in the top
10 other than Ben Tackie and maybe Ricky Hatton in a slugfest.

I'd like to see him move to welter and win a belt there once Mayorga and Vernon
leave, then wait for one of the jr. welters to move up and challenge him.

Peace.

He is actually getting worse with time, not better. He's filling out so to
speak.

He's getting worse in his development.

The same could be said about Bojado, and Bojado lost to a contender.

There's no money in it. It's not worth the risk involved.

I remember when everyone thought Bojado was some super human fighter because he
was fighting pro at the age of 18. Some people peak early in life, and burn out
rather quickly. Myself, I appreciate the late bloomers.

Bojado lost to himself by not training himself correctly, and he would also
lose to Cotto by KO if he isn't in top shape. If he ever gets fully conditioned
and mentally ready though, he has better chances of winning a title at 140 than
his Puerto Rican adversary.

There is no money in it, but its well worth the risk. Weis is the gatekeeper to
the elite at 140, much like Angel Manfredy is at lightweight. If you beat him
convincingly, you move on to greener pastures. If you don't, you reevaluate
your career (ex. Camacho Jr.). If Cotto wants to fight a few more stiffs, he is
entitled. He's young and developing. But if his people fear that he can never
beat a Weis, then they need to get him to welter where there are no Judah's,
Tszyu's and Mitchell's.

I appreciate them too man. But if Bojado ever straightens himself out and gets
a top flight trainer, he still may be a super human fighting machine. I don't
think he's peaked yet.

Peace.

No excuse. Staying in shape is just as important as keeping ones hands up.
Losing because one isn't in shape is just as bad as losing because they got hit
alot.

He's a growing boy. He can't make that weight like he used to.

How is it worth it if there is no money? Weis will probably box and move and
give Cotto, and many other fighters for that matter, absolute hell.

Quote:

That's right. Once Cotto's in the top ten there's no going back, he has to
continue fighting good fighters and he will never get a break. He will probably
be worn out like Vargas.

        As an amateur?  Two different sports.  You can't base your
statement on what either one of them did as amateurs.
