great fighter to watch, but not great
Sure he had problems with technically sound fighters. but he still beat them at 147. If I made a list of ATG at 147 Tito would be on it.

if he goes back to 147 or a catchweight of 150 and beat either floyd or pac especially floyd since pac looked bad in his last fight then he would have that one career defining win something trinidad didn't have. Floyd or pac are top 30 atg in most people's list and a win over one would be enough to say he is just a hair away from trinidad when it comes to achievements. A win to both would certainly put him ahead of trinidad and a guarantee top 50 atg

I think Cotto needs a win at 154 (perhaps against Canelo, K-9 or Kirkland) that gets him the recognition as the best fighter in the division, and later beat Mayweather or Pacquiao. If he's successful he would have an argument going for him, but there are so many variables it's hard to say. Who knows how he'll look, the circumstances going into each fight, etc.

He wont surpass tito because he doesnt have to. He will leave a print of his own and imo he's already among PR's ATG's even if he is not top of the list.

It won't happen, unless he picks up a super win like Pacquaio or Mayweather or Martinez. Even then it would be arguable.
