"The tornado is being downsized to a tropical storm"
I was thrown off with that phrase too.
Im not sure if that one came out right, Roach.
lol.....the boxing forum is so much better than the heavies....
Why is it in the Phillipines that news reporters, and flippin everybody for that matter, just breaks into like a 3 or 4 word english phrase in the middle of speaking philipino every so often?
the average Filipino combines Spanish, English, and Indian as well as one of the 120 different native languages.
I'm Filipino and living in the Phils, I usually speak 30% Spanish and 30% English and 40% native dialect every day.
We don't speak Spanish in the Philippines. We do have some Spanish words in our native language though but that's about it.
Makes me laugh to read that and then watch him work-over Freddy's hands.
I think it's a reference to their training camp last year for Cotto.
The Philippines is located where all the major tropical storms occur, so even after two typhoons hit the country and threatened their training camp, they still managed in the end.
I hope he knocks margaritos head off.

That's what he meant with the 30% Spanish comment.
Tornado is being downsized to a tropical storm is a reference aimed at margarito who is known as the Mexican tornado.
Please correct me if I'm wrong
haha yeah... TJ TORNADO!!
Damn! Pacman is fast!
yes, tornado is margaritos' nickname.
It would make sense if Marg's nick was "hurricane". Tornado...not so much. Then again, I'm no weather expert.
Separate names with a comma.
