By Carlos Young De San Felipe Miguel Cotto just fought the fight of his life versus Floyd Mayweather Jr., made the most money of his life and then decided to skip the interview to count his money, I guess, and ignore the fans. In my mind, there is nothing more disrespectful, than fighters that take the Fans-Money, and ignore the fans interest in their take on a win or loss. … [Read more...] about Cotto Counts Money And Ignores Fans

By Carlos Young de San Felipe We all hoped that Paulie Malignaggi would have some special magic, as he is called the “Magic Man” but he had very little magic if any at all and so his hopes of competing with Amir Khan became futile in only three rounds. The man that has been on the junior welterweight division pound 4 pound list for almost three years merely stood in front of … [Read more...] about Amir Khan in No Mood for Magic Tricks (Shuts-out and Shuts-up Paulie)
By Carlos Young de San Felipe This is without a doubt a queer match up that had to be. It serves to answer questions coming from both camps. In Paulie's camp they need to know that Paulie is still one of the top Jr. Welterweights in the world.
