'Dislike' is a strong word. I don't know if anything dislikes Cotto the PERSON. By all accounts, he seems to be a good guy who has his life priorities in order.

Having said that, I think his fans, at times, tend to escalate Cotto, the FIGHTER, to heights that his resume and skill set doesn't always match. And that, at times, can be annoying.

He's probably a victim of what people had projected on him (a new age, lower weight Rocky Marciano whose relentless pressure, left hook, and body attack would kill destroy everyone from 140-147, especially the much hated PBF) versus what he actually was (a very, very good fighter with a diverse skill set with potential chin and stamina issues).
