    Just Finished watching Ep 1. Both guys looks determined and are putting in the work for this fight.

    Toss up but as of now I am leaning towards the Marvelous one. He has that fire in his eyes

    thanks for posting...

    this was one of the better 24/7's I've seen.

    Whatever happened to Cotto's fat friend? That guy who lost all that weight...

    Does anyone dislike Cotto?

    If so, I hope you get a limb torn off by a rabid dog.

    He got his stomach stapled. You can see him in the beginning talking about how Cotto and roach have bonded well.

    I don't think anyone dislikes him. He is a constant professional and maintains working on his craft.

    Picking Sergio to win doesn't mean you dislike Cotto either.

    Oh I know, I was just curious if anyone actually dislikes him.

    Probably the most likable fighter I can think of.

    Honestly, I don't know how you could...

    the man always comes to fight...he's stoic. Very rarely talks $hit...

    the only criticisms I can think of him is that his performance against Trout was lackluster and he fought dirty as hell against Judah.

    Besides that, he's probably the most likable fighter out there.

    A distanct second to pacquiao of course.

    Are you guys for real? I like Cotto but there's no way is he the most likable fighter out there.

    We are talking about a guy who spits his dummy out after every loss and refuses to even do post fight interviews. Walking out of the ring because you don't like the way you performed is completely disrespectful and a is clear a sign that that he can't take defeat like a man.

    He was also a bit of a dick over the Margarito thing. It was embarrassing when he brought out his Ipad in the face off and tried to show evidence of illegal wraps. In reality, we just saw a piece of fluff attached to regular hand wraps. There's zero evidence that Margarito cheated in their fight, he didn't even cheat in the Mosley fight, he just used an old bandage.

    Quitting against Tony and blaming it on the wraps was poor form. I excuse him for quitting, but many people don't, and let's face it, taking a knee and waving the fight off is hardly a likable trait in boxing.

    Nothing not to like about El Angel. He's a bit of a diva, and I heard he's not that approachable in real life, but I'd still love to meet him.

    Im a minority here but Ive never really cared for whether or not fighters do the post fight speeches.

    As far as the Marg situation, not sure I would act any different than he did.

    He's more than happy to stick around when he wins though. It's just when he loses that he suddenly can't be arsed to show a bit of class to his opponent and the broadcasters. It doesn't take much to give a quick interview, fighters have done it after crushing and humiliating defeats. Cotto couldn't even do it after getting outboxed by Mayweather.

    Showing pictures of a piece of fluff on a handwrap is just embarrassing and it was a silly way to approach the rematch. I never liked the way he acted like he had been victim to to it.

    Would you be in the mood to talk about it after getting your ass kicked in front of millions of people? I wouldnt, thats why I dont get pissy about it. They are fighters not talk show hosts.

    I understand that most want to see the interviews and such after, just never meant much of anything to me.
