Default Can Cotto beat Mayweather?

I think Mayweather outpoints Cotto by a comfortable margin (117-111). I made a promo for the fight, any feedback would be well appreciated.

I think Mayweather is slowing and declining. His reflex's are slowing and punch speed slowing also. It's just a matter of time if he keeps boxing before someone delivers the karma he has coming.

If Cotto gets on his bike the first few rounds could be close

Mayweather is too accurate to lose v Cotto

I think Cotto can win, yes. Floyd isn't going to escape Cotto's pressure with movement IMO, so the fight will end up at close range early on I feel. Floyd is more refined on the inside, but Cotto has better balance now and is the much more destructive body puncher. Once Floyd adjusts and starts coming forward (a common guess), Cotto could either come right back at him and try to control what goes in on the clinch while landing the better punches, or turn him and work off the jab while circling to deny him an angle before throwing combinations and restarting again.

Unless there has been a rapid decline in Mayweather's skills that none of us are aware of, Cotto stands almost no chance of being Floyd, IMO.
If Floyd keeps fighting the day will come when he loses enough of his edge that he can be beaten. That day is a not now, and probably not for at least a few years.

Any boxer can lose. Anyone could have a bad night no matter if it is at his peak or not. Y haver read a lot of people saying that Mayweather is declining. I want to know what fights thay are seen. Because in his last fight he looks as fast as always and as accurate as always, and he was fighting a faster stronger men than Cotto. It seems that people see what they wanted to see and not truth. Cotto has a chance like any other boxer, if there was not a chance, no need to see the fight. But is as slim as a deli ham slice. It is more probable that Cotto be taking apart, because he has so many flaws that a guy like Mayweather could exploit that he exploit the faults that a lot of people see, but nobody has been able to exploit in Floyd. Floyd is much faster, most accurate, more durable, stronger, has more focus, is more poised and is technically light years ahead of Cotto and his endurance is provervial and everybody knows that Cotto is a 6 round fighter. Saying that, who you think that has the most probabilities to win??
