Cotto to wear extra ugly shoes in the ring


Yeah, I know you all love it when I go “haute couture” on your ass. But fuck y’all. These are some ugly ass shoes!

When Miguel Cotto enters the ring to face Sugar Shane Mosley on Saturday night, he will do it on firm footing. The WBA welterweight champion will be wearing a super hi-tech boxing boot with a special sole made out of a Michelin rubber compound specifically designed to channel liquid away from the shoe to prevent Cotto’s feet from slipping on the slick ring canvas advertisements that often cause boxers problems. In addition, the boot is supposed to provide maximum traction, allowing Cotto to firmly plant his feet before unleashing his power punches.

Yeah fucking right. So basically they’ve replaced the soles of his shoes with tire rubber. Too bad Cotto’s not a fucking car and tires are designed to push liquid away while rolling, not stepping.

    If they were handing those ugly ass shoes out at that Mickey’s Malt Liquor event I know who’d be shilling them right next to their army and mickey’s gear.

    You’re just fucking jealous.

    I don’t know they look like they’d go well with a cape– and a possibly one of those Mexican pro-wrestling masks.

  • Kalak

    What´s with all this boxing lately?

  • Swedish guy

    I agree, quit this fucking boxing blogging!

  • kermit.01

    I’m ok with the boxing blogging. It reminds us just how fucked up a sport can get and makes me thankful that MMA is not to that point– yet.

    People gotta relax. You’re getting between 8-11 posts a day outta me, one guy. Most other sites run with like 3-4 people are giving you 5-6. If one or two posts a day are about boxing, that basically means there’s nothing interesting going on in MMA at that time :-p

    Trust me, it’ll never take over the site and you won’t be ‘losing content’. Any boxing posts are above and beyond what you’ll get regarding MMA.

    Boxing can be cool sometimes, really cool. How about a post about the 25th aniversary of “Boom Boom” Mancini killing that Korean dude in the ring? (granted he was in coma for 5 days, technically, he didn’t die in the ring) It was 25 years ago today or tomorrow or tuesday or something.

    Think he really wrote this?……

    Go Matt! Hoping you get to win the TUF challenge against that joke Hughes. Man i cannot take this guy. Weird dude. Cant wait for your fight in december… too bad they could not do on LI thanks frank – http://houston-alexander.com

    guess the shoes worked

  • Matthew Watt

    Is it just me, or has Fightlinker fall ass-backwards into a truly interesting story? Throughout the fight, Mosley slipped several times on water, in Cotto’s corner. Strangely enough Cotto had shoes to prevent this. Now I hate being a conspiracy theorist, but still, is it just a coincidence that Mosley kept slipping on water while Cotto made sure he had shoes that prevented slipppage?

    And Fightlinker, don’t listen to all those other tools coming out of the tool shed. I enjoy your boxing updates, because boxing too is a compelling sport with just as funny and stupid headlines as mma that deserved to be ridiculed.

    I used to be a pretty big boxing fan but have lost interest within the past few years, I don’t mind FL posting about it though. The site is called “fightlinker” not “mmalinker”.

  • Ted Dibiase

    if boxing is fighting, i want to see some blogs on all that retarded “fighting” Tom Bruise and Bill Goldbum do on The Human Weapon.

  • intenso

    Fedor was on the Human Weapon last week!!

  • ajadoniz

    can we at least get another “Why the IFL sucks” post?

    p.s. fuck birds. haven’t they migrated south already?

  • ajadoniz

    oh yea, to everyone bitching about boxing: settle the fuck down, you’re here for the writing style, not the content.

  • Ted Dibiase

    yeah, why the hell did fedor pick the guy with down syndrome to fight Goldbum? that match was so bad. either it was set up so Goldbum won or they made him fight the worst guy there. i wanted to puke watching Goldbum telegraph every move. he fought the pastiest dude there, the fans watching were pissed it was so bad.
