Words circulating within the "Entertainment Capital of the World" had it that Cotto is having a hard time losing the extra weight and meeting the 145-pound limit set for the match. A source bared Thursday that Cotto trained at the Top Rank gym here under a temperature of "100 degrees." Cotto has not fought below 147 since 2006 when he decided to move up to welterweight also owing to weight issue.
Ok, he probably will make weight but will Cotto come into the fight dehyrdated? If so, will it affect his performance like it did Oscar De La Hoya's sluggish performance against Manny Pacquiao? I'm not making any excuses for Cotto but hmmmm . . .
