This one I think will be a really good fight and may well be the best fight of this year. Puncher vs Boxer a classic match up.

Some are saying that pound-per-pound Miguel Cotto is the hardest puncher in boxing today, I believe it. I've seen him fight! No matter where he hits you head, or body, he has knockout power with either hand. He's 29-0, with 24 KO's. And a two time world title holder, and the current WBO World JR. Welterweight champion.

I pick Cotto a winner in his fight with Zab Judah by a knockout in a mid round.

welcome back JCC.

i have to agree with you here, i see cotto being to big and strong for zab who could win the early rounds, i see cotto getting to him though around the 7th.

cottos whiskers dont look all to great though, this could give us some great up and down wars in the next few years.

Zab's superior in all departments other than power and heart. All he has to do is be smart (oxymoron?) and he will win soundly.

zab and cotto are evenly matches, cotto is stronger, zab is faster, cotto has better stamina and heart, zab has a killer instinct. It'll be good, cant wait to watch the countdown this weekend.

Yeah, I'm kind of excited about this fight! Much more even than I was to see the Del La Hoya-Mayweather fight. Which turned out not to be near as good as I expected. Judah shoots his mouth off, Cotto mostly does all his talking with his fists. Judah is fights dirty if he's losing. Cotto will wear him down banging to the body, then he'll take him out.

Cotto can hurt Judah, and will in this up coming fight! Cotto will go for the knockout and I believe he'll get it. After that Judah will be damaged goods on his way down only fighting for a pay day. It will be the end of Judah. He'll never be the same again after Cotto knocks him out. That is, if the fight goes like I tend to think it may. Cotto will ruin him.

Just wanted to add a little post script to my last post. I always, ALWAYS go with the puncher! And the reason I do is because guy like Cotto who has the big punch like Cotto ... especially like Cotto ... who has the big punch in either hand can end the fight at any time and in any round. All he has to do is to hit him just right and at the right time and the fight is over.

This is why I always go with the puncher!

I'm kind of excited about Cotto ... I see the potential in him to become an even bigger star than what he is now.

MSG forced to open 3k more seats for Cotto-Judah Recommend this page Printable version



NEW YORK, NY - With the original 16,000 tickets for "X-Plosive!" -- the June 9th world welterweight championship between Miguel Cotto and Zab Judah -- projected to sell out this week, Bob Arum, CEO of Top Rank, and Madison Square Garden have decided to open the upper mezzanine section creating an additional 3,000 seats ($50 each) to accommodate the ever-growing demands of boxing fans. This will be the first time since 2001 The Garden has opened the mezzanine for a boxing event. Limited tickets at other price levels are still available.

"Naturally we are ecstatic, but not totally surprised," said Arum. "We have been grooming and showcasing Miguel Cotto at The Garden and on national television for years in preparation for exactly this circumstance. New York has embraced Miguel and this fight as proven by the action at the box office. I expect the same thing internationally with pay-per-view sales. This isn't going to be 'Dancing with the Stars,' it's a real fight and the fans know it. This fight is generating the same buzz we had for the Roberto Duran-Davey Moore fight 24 years ago. "

Cotto, the undefeated World Boxing Association champion and the pride of Puerto Rico, defends his title against two-division world champion Judah in the main event of "X-Plosive!" Promoted by Top Rank, in association with Prize Fight Boxing, “X-Plosive!” will be broadcast live, Saturday, June 9, on HBO Pay-Per-View, from the main arena at Madison Square Garden. (NOTE: The Boxing Writers Association of America's 82nd Annual Awards Dinner takes place the night before, Friday, June 8, at the Copacabana in New York.)

Remaining tickets, priced at $500, $300, $200, $100 (soldout) and $50 and include a $4.50 facility charge, can be purchased at the MSG Box Office, TicketMaster outlets & TicketMaster phone (866-448-7849), and online at Official Ticketmaster site. Tickets for Concerts, Sports, Arts, Theater, Family, Events, more / www.thegarden.com

This marks the third consecutive year Cotto (29-0, 24 KOs), of Caguas, Puerto Rico, has headlined at the ‘Mecca of Boxing’ on the eve of New York’s annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade. Judah (34-4, 25 KOs), from Brooklyn, is no stranger to dethroning world champions. He has promised a major urban renewal of the welterweight division, beginning with the demolition of the defending champion.

The Cotto vs Judah four-bout pay-per-view telecast, beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, has a suggested retail price of $44.95. It will be distributed by HBO Pay-Per-View and will be available to more than 61 million pay-per-view homes. HBO Pay-Per-View is the leading supplier of event programming to the pay-per-view industry. For your daily Cotto vs Judah fight week updates, log onto HBO Online

Man, I like Zab for this one. He has so much talent he could have been one of the great fighters of this generation, but the guy is a nutcase:laugh:

Its the same old thing with Zab, if he brings his A game he can win this fight, but hopefully this time he will deliver.
