Xander Felix Dies: East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania – cause of death & obituary | Puerto Ricans find it hard to choose between the two stories. Xander Zayas said who he thinks will win between Miguel Cotto and Felix Trinidad in a fight.
The 20-year-old super welterweight has never lost in 14 fights and knocked out 10 of his opponents. In the future, he will be one of the biggest names in the division.
At 5-foot-10, he could fill two divisions and move up, but in August, he beat Elias Espadas at 147 pounds to win the vacant WBO NABO super-welterweight title.
On the DAZN Boxing Show, he was asked what being Puerto Rican meant to him and what Cotto and Trinidad meant to him as legends from the area. Even though he was hesitant to pick a favorite, he chose Cotto in the end.
“Don’t put me down in that way!” Before he could answer, he started to cry. “They were from two different times, but I had to pick Miguel Cotto as my favorite boxer.”
