    Kind of a garbage fight, but maybe Ali can make it a little interesting.

    Also, not too mad at Cotto, who has nothing left to prove.

    As long as its not PPV, I don't care. Cotto is close to retiring, he's not fighting any killers.

    although his stock dropped hard after the Vargas KO, shout out to him for being active as this would be his 3rd fight this year.

    Meanwhile, Khan is making a fool out his own manhood on social media..

    Not a good retirement fight at all for someone like Cotto. After fighting Kamegai, I figured he'd take on a more solid opponent for his last. Well i hope Sadam gets the win, pass the torch to the young blood.

    Fuck it, if thats who he chooses then oh well, but I was hoping Lara since I think Cotto can beat him, even possibly stop him

    Cotto got nothing left to prove

    Just wants an easy bow-out fight

    Ali's fairly entertaining even if he's not a big name. I think it's a strange pick for a retirement fight, and Cotto is obviously still a couple levels above Ali, but, it could be worse.

    At least it's not vs. Mikey Garcia.

    Thats exactly what makes him a fan favorite, very little charisma, no crazy athleticism but all heart and skill, has a very consistent resume and his first 2 losses came against highly suspected cheaters at the time

    Surprised it wasn't Khan to be honest, or maybe Khan doesn't want brain damage after all.

    Khan needs to make his return asap. But i figure a tuneup first before he takes on a big name. Doubt it happens but i wouldn't mind him fighting for the IBO belt on his return fight.

    This will backfire on him... Sadam Ali is a good boxer. Shaky chin, but he's a better boxer than Cotto. I smell an upset.

    It's a retirement fight.

    Anyone hoping he fights someone who would be favored over him is just mean.
