    Cotto and Canelo should already but fighting. Hopefully they both win and then we can also see the winner face the winner of a potential GGG/Chavez Jr fight

    I'm fine if it's later as long as it happens. Cotto gets to face a top JMW contender.

    Not like there was a spot for Canelo-Cotto with Mayweather-Pacquiao happening.

    There's apparently a verbal agreement for Cotto-Canelo.

    Cotto criticizing GGG for not fighting a top quality opponent but is facing the same guy GGG just beat in 3 rounds, at a catchweight when he is the champion. If he wasn't the champion, I don't have a problem fighting at a catchweight but he's the lineal champ.

    I really like Cotto but I don't get how this guy is thinking.

    Geale is a top 5-10 MW. It should be a competitive fight.

    I didn't know this fight was at a catchweight of 157lb until the weigh in. Geale will be drained, upset is very unlikely.

    I don't believe catch weights should exist in title fights. If you have a belt in a certain weight, that should be the limit.
    Catch weights should only exist in prize fights..

    Catchweights are there to accommodate some fighters who may not campaign at that weight so catchweights in title fights aren't all bad. Like if say Kovalev wants a cruiserweight title but he's never fought there, kinda make sense to ask for a catchweight (assuming the other fighter can make that weight). But if you're the champ at that division and they are fighting for the title you have, then you have no business asking for a catchweight. You're the champ at that weight for a reason. Accommodating challengers is a different story though.

    Title holders shouldn't be allowed to demand a catchweight, otherwise they a not the true p4p at that respective weight. It should only be considered to accommodate a challenger.

    The catch weight of 157lb doesn't accommodate Geale at all which is why the setup to this fight is stupid.

    Well Cotto admittedly said he did it to gain an advantage, so at least he's honest. But still, you're the champ there for a reason so you fight all MW fighters. If he was say facing Canelo or Floyd (or whoever usually campaigns at 154) for the title and the weight was 157, I have no problem with that since they don't campaign at 160 normally.

    Being the champ at the division means you're the best at that division. You're not exactly the best though if you aren't fighting your mandatory/quality opponents at the weight they are most comfortable at (which is typically the maximum weight).
