I understand that Cotto has a mountain to climb but its ignorance to say he has absolutely no chance.

Agreed!

Gift against Clottey.
Questionable against Shane.
Nutpunched his way out of the Zab fight.
Beat to sleep fair and square by Margarito.
Got ****ed up by Pac.
"Revenge" against Margarito who Pac ruined.
One-legged jewish kid.


He gets all the breaks, but May 5th I will enjoy watching him get the hell beat out of him with no excuses.
Let's look at Floyds fights @ WW, shall we?

Make a LWW fight at WW, Makes a LIGHTWEIGHT fight @ WW, Beats an OAP after nearly being sparked within six minutes and Cheap shots some kid.

Who has Floyd beaten since moving up to 147? It works both ways dude...

I don't give a shit about him either. He ducked my ni99a Petey just like Cottoe.

No one thought he'd beat cheato in the rematch, "Margo has his number, he's a stylistic nightmare for Cotto, he can't hurt cheato" Any fighter at this level has a chance once they step in the ring.

1. Mayweather's Pending Jail Time Could Distract Money May
2. Fighting at Cotto's Heavier Weight Class
3. Cotto's Power
4. Cotto Looked at His Best Against Margarito
5. Mayweather Is More Willing to Exchange
6. Cotto has the best shot of any fighter that has tried to use the extra motivation tactic to his advantage against Mayweather in his favor to go for the unexpected win.

Cotto will give him a good fight.
huh?

I don't usually post, just read what everyone else has to say. I've been a huge boxing fan for 45 years. I'm not going to say who will win but what I do know is that after watching Floyd's fight with ODLH, he is not that tough to hit with a jab. Oscar stopped using his and that was when he started getting hit and loosing rounds. I also noticed that when Floyd does get jabbed he backs straight up. If Cotto jabs, double jabs and moves with Floyd when he steps back then he will have the oppertunity to punch more often. I'm not saying that he will hit flush all the time but I think he will give a good accounting of himself. Floyd has great defensive skills but he is not invincable. I'm just looking for a great fight between 2 great fighters!
Cotto lost to Margo, Plaster or not, but he got his chance to do it again and won. He lost to Pac fair and square but I think that dropping down in weight did hurt his strength and stamina. Even Floyd agrees the Pac fight wasn't the best Cotto because of it.
I will give props to whoever wins. Both of these Men deserve all the respect in the world because they have the Courage to enter that ring time after time and put their life on the line, every time!

, Which is why i'm happy Floyd took the fight because we get to see him in a fight with a solid fighter, and unlike Oscar, Cotto is younger and has improved in some areas and has a little experience(unlike Ortiz) under his belt. Definetly gonna be a great fight, with a lot of fireworks.

I give Cotto about a 40% chance, which is decent.

I just get the feeling that Mayweather's number is up, can't really state why. Gut feeling, I guess.

Regardless, I just hope it's an awesome fight.
