Anyways, you say that it is refreshing that Cotto is TALKING about fighting the best in the sport while others are fighting Baldo and Manfredo. First off, talking about fighting and actually fighting are two very different things. I think Miguel Cotto is a very good boxer and I love to watch him fight, but Floyd has fought the better opposition up until this point. I wouldn't bet a dollar on ANY of Cotto's opponents against the DLH that showed up against Floyd (faded or not.)

This thread was meant as a positive for Cotto at the EXPENSE of other popular fighters here.
It was a positive thread about Cotto and Hatton making some great fights happen. I know because i wrote the f#cking thing. I was just comparing it to those particular fighters. Of course Floyd has fought better opponents. HE HAS HAD A MUCH LONGER CAREER. COtto has steadily faced great opposition and is now looking to fight the winner of Marg v Williams, or Clottey/Cintron. These are great fights. I have much different expectations to an up and coming fighter then the reigning p4p no1 in the world or a SMW chap with 20 defenses under the belt. And rightly so. The mayweather fight against Oscar was great, and against Hatton would be great also. His competition before that though for someone in his position was faiirly average all things considered.
