Mosley was not at his peak but a damn sight better than versions Mayweather and Pacquiao faced and he did go on to a great win over Margarito so he wasn't that washed up - post sensibly please.

Cotto made it more of a fight, in the first 5 rounds or so it was fairly competitive, he went into survival mode after that. Hatton spent more time in the john before the fight than he did in the ring with Pacquiao

Anyway like I said, Cotto won more belts, was a better boxer and his resume reads better also

As I said, Cotto's best was his resume before he stepped up to 154. As I also said, Cotto was shot after Margarito and Pacquiao. So shot Cotto beat shot Mayorga basically

Cotto would destroy Hatton at any period of their careers

So when was cottos "prime"

When he was getting ROCKED by bums at 140?

When Margarito beat him black and blue, made him take two cowardly knees and QUIT?

When clottey beat him?

When he ran from pac but still got destroyed

When floyd schooled him?

Well, when was it?

Clearly when he moved up to 147. He beat Clottey, whether you like it or not. He beat Mosley, whether you like it or not. Margarito I won't bother answering. Funny you're bringing up Pacquiao, we're comparing to Hatton aren't we? Funny you're bringing up Mayweather, we're comparing to Hatton aren't we? Hatton, who spent most of his time tryingt to hit Floyd and got KO'd, I seem to recall Cotto at least making Mayweather work for it in the last 7 rounds...so I'd not bring up Pacquiao and Mayweather if you're comparing Cotto to Hatton

Cotto's best was at 147, I've already said it. I'm also not saying he's an all time great, I'm just saying he's a bit superior to Hatton.

Hatton won the same amount of rounds against PRIME floyd as cotto did against shopworn floyd.

Yes he got stopped.

But Hatton is naturally a lot smaller than cotto, who has like 20lb of extra ballast.

Being smaller doesn't make you a worser fighter.

Hatton sucks btw, just saying him and cotto are the same level

I won't rest until people recognised cotto for what he truly is

HBO didn't care much about Ricky though, and gave him hard style match ups. They knew they could make a buck off cottos gullible fans though, so they gave him some bums to bash up, and robberies over mosley and clottey.

Cotto is like an overrated Hatton

Prime Cotto pounds the shit out of Hatton. Not sure what planet you're from actually, Cotto's been in there with the best available his entire career.

Prime cotto had a fight with green Paulie

He ain't pounding the shit outta nobody bud.

He might outrun Hatton though

He's good at running and quitting

LOL, well dude, it really doesn't mean as much to me as it means to you
If I had to rank them, I give Cotto the edge and explained why. I think Pacquiao is better than Cotto and he's a smaller guy so not sure why you need to explain "being smaller doesn't make you worse"

The fact Hatton got KO'd by someone with Floyd's poor KO ability and fact Pac found him with a money shot so early on shows how poor a technical boxer Hatton is - you've just backed up some of my reasoning.

Anyway, good luck on your "Cotto sucks" campaign

Even if you dismiss the Malignaggi, Clottey and Judah wins, how can you possibly disregard his wins over Mosley, Pinto, Torres and Quintana? Not to mention the other 3-4 underrated victories he had at 140...
