Pedro Diaz talks about Cotto's Stamina

1

This is a short video, in Spanish (no subtitles, sorry), where Pedro Diaz, Cotto's new trainer, talks about Miguel's stamina issues and how he has improved in this training camp. His methods seem quite scientific and when a reporter asked him about Cotto's stamina he said that Miguel's recuperating powers had increased from a paltry 17.5% in October to a 42% percent now. This is, apparently, measured by heart rate in between rounds. If you understand Spanish, it's a fun watch.

Boxing is going through a difficult time and this type of fight complicates the picture even further. This affects those of us who would like to bring boxing to a different level, back to the golden era...Personally, I never heard Joe Cortez tell the boxers to start fighting again. If someone is apologizing to me, I should wait until they are ready. I would have never done what Mayweather did" - Miguel Cotto [my translation]

Do you watch boxing because of or in spite of the drama?

It seems that every week we, as boxing fans, are treated to some sort of weird/horrible ending. There are corrupt judges, inept referees, weird ass moments in the ring, dirty fighters... yet we...

Interview with Juan Manuel Lopez (translation)

I've never been a huge defender of Juan Manuel Lopez's character. I think he has a lot of flaws, but I also think sometimes he's been the victim of poor translations. He doesn't sound as conceited...

How will the Steward-trained Miguel Cotto fare against Antonio Margarito?

First off, I'd like to go on record saying that I still think Antonio Margarito doesn't deserve big fights. What's he done? Cheat and lose. But let's not rehash that old topic anymore. It's been...

"I don't worry about who the bloggers think is the best opponent...I really don't care [what] the writers say or even what the hardcore boxing followers say when it comes to this. I know we need to pick the opponent who is the most familiar to the casual sports fan, the casual boxing fan who cannot name all the fighters" -
