I'm still waiting for someone to tell me how Hatton has a better chin than Cotto.

Cotto was 17 pounds heavier than Corley
The fight prematuredly stopped the hometown Ref
Corley is a very lousing finisher
Corley is a B level fighter AT best

The obvious answer is that Cotto is much bigger naturally than Hatton or Gatti. Cotto has a cut a good bit just to make 147. Hatton cuts weight, but he just packs on fat in between fights.

the fight was stopped prematurely, in fact no one liked it, the ref. was shit by doing that. But Corley wasn't gonna last, either way he was getting KO

Cotto's defense is clearly underrated and to date Cotto has made everyone fight his fight and he has had a plan A B and C to outbox his opponents. So guess what Mosley's 50% landed on Cotto didn't mean jack shit he was simply outboxed. And believe me Mayweather won't knock out Cotto and he isn't going to be pulling off all that unorthodox jumping lead right crosses either. Trust me it will be a different fight, a fight where Floyd will have to put his track boots on because he is going to find out real quick what Cotto is all about. Floyd can't work with Cotto on the inside like he did with lil'hatton he can only beat him on the outside. Lets see who will have the more authoritative jab.
Mosley landed over 50% power shots. 3 opponents that I know of, have landed over 50% of their power shots on Cotto. Your right Floyd cant work with Cotto on the inside, Cotto will end up low blowing him once Floyd starts doing good, cause we all know Cotto is a cheater when in trouble.
