Cotto punches way to best in business

first_imgQuintana was decked twice in the fifth round and could not answer the bell for the sixth, having been taken apart by Cotto, who won the vacant World Boxing Association welterweight title. The win gave the former junior welterweight champion an 8-0 record with seven knockouts in championship fights. It also made a true believer out of his promoter, Bob Arum. “Punching power could be the ability to take out an opponent with one punch, like Tyson had,” said Arum, who will promote Cotto’s title defense against Oktay Urkal on March 3 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. “Punching power could be based on an accumulation of punches, a relentless attack of hurting his opponent as he attacks him and breaking him down. “And I think that Miguel will go down in boxing history in that second category as among the best that ever fought. He’s skilled, has fast hands, but it’s his relentless attack that never, never stops in hurting his opponent.” There is no question Cotto is scary. He works the body as dynamically as he batters the head. He’s one of those fighters who can make even the most courageous opponent cringe while pondering the punishment that is sure to be forthcoming. But getting Cotto to brag a bit is about as difficult as weathering one of his left hooks. MIGUEL Cotto was supposed to be facing a stern test when he took on fellow Puerto Rican Carlos Quintana last Dec. in Atlantic City. Quintana was undefeated at 23-0. At 5-foot-91/2, he was 21/2 inches taller than Cotto. Quintana also had a five-inch reach advantage, is left-handed and had been a welterweight his entire career. Cotto was moving up from junior welterweight. center_img “I just do what I do,” Cotto, 26, said Wednesday. “I come to fight, I come to win. That’s what I think about, winning. I leave it to the fans, to the press, to everyone that knows boxing, to decide what they think of my career.” This is just the attitude that Arum believes will help propel Cotto (28-0, 23 KOs) to the top of every respectable pound-for-pound poll. Not only is Cotto physically gifted, he’s humble. “He’s looked upon as one of the top fighters in boxing, and rightly so, and it is our hope that in the next year or so he will be recognized as the very best,” Arum said. “He is a very hard-working young man and he gives a lot to the sport. “But that’s so much a part of the battle today, to get a young man to not get ahead of himself and not start proclaiming that he is the best, that he can beat everybody, and just let it come. Like the great ones did, like (Marvin) Hagler and (Sugar Ray) Leonard. They didn’t claim to the rafters that they were the best, they proved that they were the best.” Should Cotto get past 37-year-old Urkal (38-3, 12 KOs) – and that should not be a problem – he already has signed to defend his belt against former welterweight champion Zab Judah on June 9 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Judah, of Brooklyn, has not fought since last April 8 when he lost his International Boxing Federation belt to Floyd Mayweather Jr. via lopsided decision. Judah touched off a brawl during the 10th round when he fouled Mayweather with a low blow.
