Case in point:
PBF beat Corrales who's success raised PBF's stock.
Cotto already beat Malignaggi (an HBO hype job) and Maussa who became champ.
Quintana, Pinto, etc. can still do something.
If he continues on this path the probability of them becoming the Corrales and Castillo's for him will go up.
Not including super fights which don't diminish or devalue him like they didn't DLH or Mosley.
I think DLH gets ****ed up by Cotto to be honest.
DLH is all wrong for Cotto style wise. And also, Cotto has been bought along very carefully. He's fought decent comp, but no real great fighters (yet).
PBF's resume is too full to even compare to Cotto's, and honestly I think it is unfair to Cotto at this young age. PBF has fought and beaten a few HOF fighters, something Cotto has yet to achieve.
And Malinaggi is no hype job. He took Cotto to the edge with a broken jaw, and did not quit, fold, or get stopped. He has shown, heart, skill, and a chin.
