Cotto recently weighed in today at 154 pounds for his fight with zab judah. He was allowed to weigh up to 168. Looks like he is in pretty good shape already.

cottos just so strong its unbeleivable, i see him being up at 154 in the next 12-18 months he's a bull at 140-147.

i know, so you like him? I know im a huge fan of his.
i dont dislike him but i do think he's slightly overated and has looked a bit chinny at times, if you think back to his 140 days guys like torres and chop-chop had him hurt at times, there not exactly pillow punchers but where he is now they would be considered just that. mallignaggi is another who stiffend his legs up, he wasn't on queer street like in the torres fight but he did look hurt, pauly is a complete non puncher but does have a lot of heart though.

id say at 147 now he'd lose to ssm, margarito, clottey and cintron could be a 50-50.

he will beat zab though. :D

well i'd pick him to win over all those guys except for mosley, and in a couple years he woudl beat mosley, I think his chin has looked alot better since he moved up in weight and the fight with torres and corley, corley was the only oen to rock mayweather and he has a great chin. Torres is an extremely hard puncher, doesnt look like it, reminds me of trinidad. but i never saw paulie hurt him, He did show alot of heart though but cotto shows me more heart than any other fighter ive seen. He looks unhurtable, he's so determined. He's getting better with everyfight. I still see good things for him in the future.

with all due respect lance he's fought quintana and urkal at 147 neither is noted as a puncher.

cotto looks the business when he's going forward but has looked very suspect when pressured himself.

agreed, but the only people that have beat urkal are kostya tsyzu and phillips and both are huge punchers and neither could knock him out. Urkal is undderated. as for quintana, your right, he's nothing. Those were just warmups for zab.

urkal wasn't the same fighter whom fought kostya or harris though (i take it you ment harris:D ) and i thought that fight was pretty close when the corner withdrew urkal, maybe cotto winning by just 2 points.

i saw urkal fight klosse after the harris fights and he looked like crap in that fight, urkal was exclusively a 140lb fighter in his career to, he was never a 147 guy where cotto is huge.

poor fight by cotto IMO, could do better.

no one is afraid of that bum. he just doesnt offer any money, i wish i didnt know who he was, i have no interested in watching him, he's much more boring that floyd. I dont know what you gusy see in him. Cotto would kill that body, kill that body, kill that body, kill that body, need i say moer ?

Cotto looked average against Urkal.
