yeah right which is why Floyd moved up to 140 to face cotto and Hatton, instead he got a Cotto stand in called Henry Bruseles and the late Arturo Gatti. Both were beat, battered and destroyed with ease.. Which cause both Cotto's and Hatton camp to pass on Floyd at 140. Too much speed and power at 140.

So Floyd was pushing for a fight with Miguel?

Cotto was a top rank fighter.. he fought who they put in front of him. If Floyd wanted that fight he could have made it! He ran off into retirement instead

This is true. Cotto never pushed to make a Mayweather fight and neither did Mayweather. They were content to not fight eachother.

When you call yourself the best, you push to make fights with the best, Cotto did'nt, Mayweather did'nt. They both ducked eachother!

Cotto, Margarito, Williams. They were considered elite at 140/147 during that span, Mayweather did'nt push to make a fight with either of them.

The art of the cherrypick is something Mayweather is better at than boxing!

Cotto would have no problem fighting floyd! Cotto fought who they put in front of him. Floyd sd he was his own boss... he could have made it if he wanted Just like he could have made mosley but he fought a lightweight marquez instead! You are right that hes the master cherry picker.

Mayweather asked Arum for 10mil guaranteed to fight Cotto. So yes Mayweather did pursue a Cotto fight.
