Default Cotto, Gatti and Hatton..

All fought at 140 for a while before deciding to go up to 147. Hatton and Gatti both looked worse than ever at this weight while cotto looked better than ever.

why is this? i know Cotto is more skilled than they are but Hatton and Gatti both claimed that they just weren't big enough.

Cotto has done better at 147 because he is naturally bigger, naturally stronger, and far more skilled than Hatton and Gatti.

And to answer the thread (I guess it already was, but oh well) Cotto is the naturally bigger guy,,,by a long shot. Have you seen the weigh-in pics for the Malignaggi fight? He looks like he's dead....but still alive
