    Miguel Cotto vs. Daniel Geale Fight Preview

    in Sports

    Miguel Cotto has had an outstanding 14-year career. He will almost undoubtedly be a first-ballot Hall of Famer.


    He took the Puerto Rican torch from Felix Trinidad and won titles in four different weight divisions, the only Puerto Rican fighter to do so.


    He’s fought the biggest names put in front of him. Make no mistake, he has earned the right to call his own shots, and that is exactly what he’s doing.


    Now while this may rub a lot of people the wrong way, a lot of decisions in boxing are made with who has the leverage, and right now Cotto is holding it.


    He knew when he was the B-Side and played his part accordingly. But, now it seems like being the B-Side has brought out the worst A-Side in Miguel Cotto.


    Live Guest: Junior Younan


    Roc Nation Sports signed rising undefeated super middleweight prospect Junior “The Young God Younan will be fighting on the Undercard of Miguel Cotto vs. Daniel Geale, 12 rounds, for Cotto’s WBC middleweight title.


    Live Guest: Alfredo Angulo


    Alfredo Angulo will be part of the Premier Boxing Champions card on June 6 at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, an event headlined by Robert Guerrero's main event. The show will air on NBC.

    Miguel Cotto vs Daniel Geale Preview with Sam Sheppard

    in Sports

    Last weekend was full of British fighters, and we had some fun times in a number of those scraps. On Sky Sports, Kell Brook laced up Frankie Gavin, Lee Selby annexed a belt from Evgeny Gradovich, Jorge Linares outlasted Kevin Mitchell in a brutal go, Amir Khan got past a surprisingly scrappy Chris Algieri on Spike... But likely the talk of the weekend was Anthony Joshua's quick demolition job on Kevin Johnson. Even crazier is that Patrick Connor, boxing historian and contributor to The Fight City, and James Foley of Bad Left Hook welcome back Sam Sheppard of The Queensberry Rules, to give us a firsthand perspective of most of it. This coming weekend, Miguel Cotto wonkily defends the middleweight title against Daniel Geale at a catchweight on HBO, but not before Robert Guerrero takes on Aron Martinez for Premier Box
