Win or Go Home
If the fight is close and competitive, both fighters can claim a moral victory and perhaps go at it again. But, if the fight is a one sided win for either, the loser will be at a serious career cross-roads. For Cotto, retirement likely looms large. At 35, what else is left to be done? For Canelo, the risk is becoming relegated to the B-Side. Meaning, good, but not good enough to beat the A-Side fighters like Mayweather and Cotto.
