Let me set the facts straight. Cotto just left Top Rank and BAM fight was made INSTANTLY. There was no way Arum was going to put one of his cash cows in the ring with Floyd. Yes Pacquiao destroyed Cotto. More importantly, Floyd had to use 10oz gloves because Cotto too ***** to allow 8oz gloves, which Floyd requested. The smaller, more punch friendly gloves is what Pac used. Floyd had to fight with pillows at their size.

Marquez. What can we say. Floyd v Marquez was a one-sided schooling. Do we really need to compare a KTFO vs that?

When did Cotto hurt Floyd? You mean a bloody nose. LMFAO. That's what hurt means in boxing now? Shane hurt Floyd but Cotto hurting Floyd, that's a stretch of the imagination.

Cotto did not say no, He said the fight needs to be at his weight. The same courtesy that he gave Pac, which should have been no problem considering how widely/badly/easily Pac won.

He has long been the best fighter on the planet.

He was almost everyone's #1 entering Pac/JMM IV, so I don't know what kind of **** you're talking.

If winning over 40 fights without a loss were so easy, more fighters would be 41-0...Nuff said

Aside from a few names he hasnt really fought anybody special, and none of the big names on res were anywhere close to there primes, more like at the end of their careers.
What ROUNDS ?

One reason may be that when they try a big price has to be paid. I feel like cotto and de la Hoya gave that a shot and all dithed it later. I'd have to watch them again to be sure but that's my initial thought.
