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.
You think that Floyd will be able to stop 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
Blueprints? Wtf? Floyd don't need a blueprint. He just has to be himself. Cotto is the one who needs a damn good gameplan to make it a good fight, let alone beat Maywather, which I can't see him doing outside of that never-happens-but-always-mentioned homerun punch.

Hell yeah he is gonna stop Cotto. Cotto's wars with Margarito and Pacquiao will be on everyone's mind. It'll be stopped based on what he's been through before. Cotto will stop trying by the 6th, and the fight'll be stopped before the 12th. Mark my words.

im talking about floyd
You're right. When Corely caught him with that big right hand, he did begin engaging - successfully, and came back to win the round. When Mosley caught him, once again, he came back, and by the end of the round, he was the one backing Mosley up.

Floyd will fight like Floyd. Go backwards or come forward, potshot, and look for counter opportunities.


If anything he could take something from the Clottey fight which exposed some of the gaps in Cotto's defense.

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.
totally agree ... Floyd should load his gloves more than usually!

You really have the habit to sound like an expert!!!! If he was fighting a hobbit, would his habbit be a habit?

...Cotto's gonna be the stronger guy come fight night. Remember that Pedro Luis Diaz is his trainer now.

Cotto will be ready for the right hand. Not so sure about the check hook...
