Video Hype: Cotto-Mayorga Presser Highlights

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

With all the usual Ricardo Mayorga "that guy's guy and his home country will be rooting for me" nonsense so far in the Cotto-Mayorga press conference jabber, I'll admit that I've been a bit bored by the whole thing. For once, I find a Mayorga fight more interesting, even if he gets shelled, than I do the lead-up. It seems like the old guy has finally run out of material for good.

But he does look to be in solid shape, and Cotto has been forced to throw back a few insults, so it's not all a wash. The best thing here is definitely Emanuel Steward's quote, "You can talk after the fight, and Don can come up and wave one flag, a white flag."

Cotto refused to pose for pictures or shake Mayorga's hand at the conclusion of the press conference. So you have one of two options: Mayorga has actually gotten under his skin, or everyone's playing their role. YOU make the call.
