Default Potential blueprints Floyd will use to combat Cotto--- ANSWER = MOSLEY, JUDAH

Foreman vs Cotto
Pacquiao vs Cotto
Clottey vs Cotto ****
Margarito vs Cotto
Mosley vs Cotto ****



Just like he used the Winky blueprint to defeat Mosley, I think their camp might focus on studying the Clottey and Mosley fights since they were a little more his speed. Pacing, workrate, clinching, potshotting, etc

It was discussed before that Cotto has trouble when the fight takes place at a pace he's not accustomed to or comfortable with, as with the Pac and Marg fights so possibly I wouldn't count out Floyd upping the workrate like he did with Ortiz

i agree with the clottey fight, floyd could do what clottey never did, acually fcking punch when there was openings. Floyd finds opening really ****ing well and capitalizes on it.


that being said, i believe studying the margarito fighter would be better due to a new style. They need to anticipate both styles, cotto might pressure and box.

You bring up an interesting point.

Probably Zab and Mosley!

He won't. Style wise Mayweather matches up well with Cotto by just being Mayweather.

Margarito and Clottey had good size advantages to work off of. Judah's success came with counter uppercuts, which Floyd won't throw. Mosley fought Cotto as a power boxer, and took more shots than Floyd will be prepared too. And Pacquaio's main offensive strength was his footwork, which I'm not sure Mayweather can match, and he doesn't need to.

Mayweather will walk forward, put up a high guard and rely on a stiff jab to the body, and a right hand lead. One and two punches at a time, never more. Short efficient steps to an angle to open Cotto up.

Mayweather is faster, and he'll be the physically stronger man too. He will end up backing Cotto up.

Of course Floyd's gonna fight like Floyd, using a blueprint doesnt really mean a fighter's gonna change his style or mimic another.

Its not like the entirety of their typical camp is exposed on 24/7 but it looks to me Roger's the one doing the homework and studying. I think he will plant subtle adaptations to the gameplan that Floyd would be able to reference during the fight and this will stem from the habits/tendencies he notices on video.

Key word there is habbits.

Every fighter makes mistakes, but it's the habbits you can take advantage of. Two totally seperate things.

Watching styles closer to his own (or styles that create situations easy for him to replicate) I believe will make it easier to "force" certain scenarios to occur and take advantage of

I think Floyds gonna use the jab like he did with Marquez and DLH in this fight. Cotto doesnt have a quality right hand and basis his entire attack off his jab. I think Mayweathers gonna take away Cottos jab. Much like PAcquiao dif actually.

He has one bad habbit

If you force him to lead, and move off to your right at an angle (Actually move, don't pivot) then he does occasionally over reach with his right hand lead and get a touch off balance, he counters this by stepping forwad, ducking and turning to his right, but he does make that initial mistake

I've seen about 35 of his fights and that's all I can come up with

do u notice when a fighter catches him with a good shot, he gets upset and carelesss and all of a sudden try to engage a little bit? if u embarrass him hard enough u can take him out of his gameplan. his ego can be his downfall..

im talking about floyd
