He was at 154 for a total of 4 fights; Benitez, who he got outboxed by; Cuevas, who he stopped quickly; Moore, who he trashed; and Hearns, who he got ravaged by.
Cotto is a good fighter, but he couldn't outbox or starch Roberto at 154 no matter what version is in front of him, and that 2007 DLH was not a particularly dangerous opponent either.
