ffs, WEIGHT ISNT ANYTHING TO DO WITH FRAME SIZE.

MMMMKAY?

to answer thought, cotto is a better boxer than both hatton and Gatti, and he was "READY" for 147 in that the weight made him stronger.

in hattons case, it made him slower and generally most people at 147 are big guys boiling down, ricky has not the strenght (that he uses at 140) or the skill to compeate.

To be fair to Gatti - while he was clearly nowhere near Cotto's level anyway - he was stuck in no man's land weight-wise. He really did look tired and drawn at 140, and yet noticeably smaller than other welterweights when he stepped up to that weight. I found that rather strange...

Hatton doesn't even throw a jab. How can he possibly be more skilled than Cotto? LOL

Hatton is a naturally small guy, though his antics don't help! Should have started his career at lightweight, but was so busy blasting people out at 140 that he decided to stay there.

Cotto on the other hand, went on hunger strike to make 140, he is to 147 what Hatton is to 140. I would say he is beatable, certainly by Hatton at 140, and FMJ at 147.

As for one being more skilled than the other, Hatton does have a great range of skills, but has rarely needed them, other than in the Mayweather fight when it just didn't happen for him other than in a couple of rounds.

Hatton KO Cotto at 140
Cotto KO Hatton at 147
Spot on.

The only thing I think Hatton has over Cotto is a better chin, and possibly I stress possibly a stronger puncher, although I think Hatton hits harder at the body for sure.

I think the reason why Hatton may be levelling off is because he has had 44 fights, a few wars in there, whilst Cotto has 31 fights and less wars.

You do the maths!

These Hatton Jockstraps Make Me Laugh Not Even In Hattons Dreams Is He Better Than Cotto. If You Thought Floyd Beat Him Down Just Let Him Get In The Ring With Cotto He Would Go Down Like Delahoya Ala Hopkins Style. Cotto Has Better Defense Is More Accurate More Powerfull And Faster Than Hatton So Keep Dreamin.

What makes ya'll say Hatton has a better chin? Cotto has never been down for the 10 count and according to a lot of ya'll Floyd can't even punch and he finished Hatton. LOL

Hatton more skilled than Cotto???? rofl!!! Ricky is explosive thats about it. Ricky has 1 gear, pressure. If you're telling me Cotto only knows how to pressure people you need to watch a different sport. Or at least watch every single fight of Cotto's career than come back here and give us an oppinion. Otherwise you don't deserve to speak.

He has a smaller frame, it doesn't matter that he ****s himself over by eating like a fat ass to 175.
