However, Cotto fought a prime Pacquiao, fought a prime version of the most avoided/feared fighter in the sport (and somehow stayed on his feet thru 11 rounds of plaster) and took on other highly avoided guys like Joshua Clottey (and I think Cotto decisively won that fight). Other than Mayweather dick riders, NOBODY would deny Cotto has taken on the much tougher challenges than Money May.
The only reason Clottey lasted that long and had some success was due to the MASSIVE cut over Miguel's eye which was caused by a HEADBUTT!!!

That is the only reason. Miguel was owning that azz.

If Cotto would not been taken advantage off the 1st Margarito fight, how far would he had gone??? He may be undefeated today? Who the fugg knows!

The Pac fight...this was at Pac ABSOLUTE BEST/PEAK! Pac was a monster! I bet you that at full 147, with a "real" corner and plan Miguel would have come on top! He still had the ghost of Margarito combined with the lost of his father, and family problems with his uncle/traineer!

Fugg the haters! Cotto was cheated, and taken advantage off with the catch weight BS!

War Cotto!

I personally believe that one of Cotto's loses was bullshit (first Margo fight) and one of Floyd's wins was bullshit (first Castilo fight). In a perfect universe you correct those records and the resumes get a little closer (42-1 versus 38-2). None the less Floyd's is still better.
well if thats the case cotto also arguably lost to mosley and clottey, so i guess its now 37-4 to 42-1...your logic is plain stupid....

Brother, haters are going to hate! Cotto gets lots of hate here and on BS.com insane! Most by Margarito fanatical fans, and others just because he is that good and had that much potential. Ill say on a Roger MW voice "they dont know shit about boxing!"

On a serious note, what would have been Miguel's career if he would not been cheated by Margarito and the Pac fight would have been under diferent circustances????

Definately Mayweather. Mayweather has beaten better fighters at 154, 147, and arguably 140. You also have his work at 130 and 135. Cotto, has a damn good resume and is probably going to be a HOFer. However, his resume doesn't stack up to Mayweather's

I love Cotto, and have a grudging respect for Mayweather, but can see that Mayweather takes this. His work in the lower weights, plus Oscar and Cotto provide a much broader range of accomplishments.

That said, Cotto will always have the respect of being a people's champion: a take all comers warrior who gave the fans exciting fights. You can't say the same about Mayweather.

Mayweather has a better and deeper resume. He's also more accomplished.

by the looks of your avatar i know theres no used discvussing this with you, miguel has been stopped twice and cotto was no where close to owning clottey, cotto went into retreat in the later rounds as always, this was a fight he easily could have lost, the cut shit is just an excuse....

if thats the case i can say clottey's leg was injured because cotto illegally slammed him....

I haven't watched the Cotto/Clottey fight since it happened but from what I can remember it was Clottey that gave away the last few rounds by going into his shell mode. Giving Cotto a narrow win.
