Default Re: Anybody think Cotto will win then?

Yeah I agree on Alvarez, I think he'd be cannon fodder for Floyd. For Miguel too I reckon. But there's always been something about Cotto that I think could cause Mayweather serious problems. I think he'd have to box rather than brawl to do so but I've got hope for him.

The reflexes of Floyd have always been what's kept him so defensively inpenetrable but the shield he makes for himself to the body when on the inside is also a crucial aspect IMO. That's where I think Cotto might have more success than others in that his body shots are as effective from mid range as they are up close- if he's going to win, he's going to have to make them count.
