also he had to make a weight a couple of pounds shy.. thats a kilo, in boxing terms a crap or a Piss.
Um... no. A kilo in boxing terms is a lot, because these guys are cutting it close. They can't crap out what they haven't eaten or Piss when they have barely touched a liquid in 2-3 days. A kilo is an extra half hour or hour in the sauna jumping rope 24 hours before the fight when you're dehydrated, hungry, and very low on energy. Hardly a way to prepare yourself for the toughest opponent of your career.
I've not heard of Cotto struggling to make the 145lbs. I just question why it was ever necessary in the first place. In hindsight, it is a needless asterisk against the fight, and gives the likes of Mayweather reason to discredit it, justified or not.
