2. It’s Been A Year
Cotto steps in to the ring nearly a year to the day he defeated Sergio Martinez. At 34 years old he’s logged some rough miles. The press has peppered Cotto about such a long period of inactivity and its potential consequences. His response — it’s given him much needed rest. This may be true, but what is also true is a fighter at that age, with that many battles under his belt can grow old in one night. This will be something to consider and watch for on fight night.
