Cotto will have to fight through some early punishment and shaky moments to win but I think he has the heart and touch of mongrel in him (note the low blows he used when hurt against Judah) to do so.
Cotto KO 7.
Theres a huge difference of class in Hearns & Duran and Cotto. Two of them are amongst the greatest fighters of all time, the other is merely a good contender at the moment. He has done nothing that allows him to be compared to them.
