I'm gonna go with you hit the nail on the head there^^ lolYou dont have to be a Margarito fan to know that he was handicapped. If he wasnt Cotto wouldnt have faught him again. He did wait for Margarito's career to be completely destroyed and for him to look completely pathetic in his fights to fight im again. And Cotto will be punked and schooled against Mayweather. He wont be able to make it into a fight and he doesnt have the speed or the stamina to keep up with Mayweather.Cotto's chances of victory are slim to none. He'll get punked and schooled just like Henry Bruseles but to a lesser extent. Floyd is going to disect him round by round and get em outa there late..
Cotto beat a handicap in Margo but let's not get too excited cuz him VS Floyd aint really a fight. haha
So says a bitter Margo fan... LOL. Surprised you didn't predict a 1st round KO.
I think Floyd's rightfully favored in this fight. But unlike bitter Margo fans and Cotto haters, I feel it'll be a competitive, entertaining fight. Cotto has to fight the fight of his life, no doubt about it. But "punked and schooled"? And comparing Cotto to Henry Bruseles? What a load of shit. Oh well, expected nothing else. Time for the other groupies to chime in.
You're not a groupie, so I'll treat your opinion differently. To your point about Margarito... Cotto didn't even want to fight him after he found out that he had tried to cheat against Mosley and had very likely cheated against him (once a cheater always a cheater). A natural reaction, don't you think? Eventually, he changed his mind. I'm sure he wanted to get that thorn off his side once and for all. So while you declare that Cotto's masterplan was to wait until Margarito was damaged goods to fight him again, I think you're going out on a thin limb there.
As for Cotto being "punked and schooled" (the "in" phrase for Floyd groupies and/or Cotto haters, I guess), who knows? Anything is possible in boxing. Cotto may not match up well with Mayweather. Lots of fighters haven't. Cotto doesn't need to prove anything else in his illustrious career. This would just be a feather in his cap. I will tell you, however, that Cotto showed remarkable adaptability in going back to his old boxing and moving style against Margafucko. He jabbed, he clinched at key moments, he pushed Margafucko back instead of letting it be done to him, and.... he chose his moments to engage in toe-to-toe exchanges with the cheater. All in all, a masterful performance. You may not think much of it, but your opinion is apparently not shared by those who put together the Cotto-PBF match. If not for Cotto's showing, they would've found some other opponent for Floyd.
I'm not going to sit here and predict a Cotto win. But I am going to say that most likely it will be a competitive, entertaining fight. Something Floyd against other opponents hasn't always given us fans. And IMHO, yes.... Cotto has a chance to pull off the upset.
I think it'll be like his fight with Pac. Competitive for a few rounds then Cotto will retreat . I just don't see him being the one to be able to beat Mayweather.
