    I cant seem to figure out why Freddie Roach does this when he gives pads.....I've seen him do it to ALL his fighters, pac,khan,and here cotto. Everytime he goes to the ropes he makes his fighters pivot completely out. But isn't that letting them "go"?
    Wouldn't you want to stay and cut the ring off?

    I think the point is to change the angle after you finish your combo, both to get out of the harms way, and to open the angle for the new attack. Imagine a guy on the ropes trying to fire back, but instead gets nailed from his right side...just my opinion...
