Dougie's Friday mailbag - Some Q&A about Cotto/Martinez

3

Some Q&A with readers about the Cotto/Martinez fight. Fischer provides a counterbalance to readers' reactions about both fighters. But I particularly liked his last words: " Regarding the fall of the "real" Magic Man, my friends were indeed correct. I should have listened to Dave Schwartz and Steve Kim when analyzing the Cotto-Martinez matchup, but I wanted to give the defending champ the benefit of the doubt. Like you, I have been a fan of his style, in-the-ring mettle and out-of-the-ring dignity and charm. I couldn’t get the image of the 2010 and 2011 version of "Maravilla" out of my head. That fighter doesn’t exist anymore and he’s not coming back. That’s Ok. He had a hell of a late-career surge, moving to the U.S. and becoming an HBO staple over the last five years, overcoming setbacks (Cintron, Williams I) and delivering some memorable performances (Pavlik, Williams II, Chavez Jr.) during his mid-to-late 30s. Martinez can move on with no regrets. "

WHO IS, WHO IS NOT, AND WHO WON'T BE A GOLDEN BOY FIGHTER

From http://www.fighthype.com/ "Following the recent departure of former CEO Richard Schaefer, there's been much confusion about who is and who is not a Golden Boy Promotions fighter. Currently, the company's website lists 78 active fighters on their roster. While that sounds impressive, there's a small catch...some of those 78 fighters are not formally signed to contracts with Golden Boy Promotions. At least a third of their roster is advised by Al Haymon, and the vast majority of his fighters are promotional free agents. Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya must now figure out which fighters are his, which fighters are not, and which fighters are near the end of their contracts."
