This I agree with, the man did call him out did talk some shit especially after how many fights we have seen him fight like Ruiz? he deserves this beating, However Floyd does need to stop avoiding the real threats to him out there beating hatton is not going to secure his legacy neither will his win over an older De La Hoya, Floyd needs to be in a fight with one of these young guys, a Chavez Taylor like war to cement his legacy, Cotto would be the perfect guy to present that kind of fight to him, and if Floyd wins there he will defently be considered a true all time great right now yeah he is an all time great but people will say he made that out of good match making.

Yep, and many here thought Judah was going to destroy Cotto.

Many on this forum dont understand boxing, or havent boxed. A preasure fighter such as Cotto with a brutal body attack is a great style contrast for a slick boxer with the skills of Mosely or PBF.

Further evidence of this can be found in Malignaggi's broken face.

Or Branco´s dislocated shoulder, or Quintana telling his corner he was a dead man and refusing to continue.

I think Floyd would probably squeeze a decision, but the posters here who think Floyd makes a fool out of him cause he has a cooler jump rope routine or is fancier on the mitts need to re-evaluate the situation.

no i understand boxing, and I box as well. And i picked Zab to win. Which he could of. WHat Zab should have done was use use jab to keep Cotto off him, whenever Cott got in, tie him up. And pick his shots. As bad a beaten Zab took in that fight all it would took was one uppercutt. And when Zab had Cotto hurt, he smothered his punched, thats the main reason why Zab didnt get him outta there.
I take nothin from Cotto he did wat he had to do that night. But if Zab gets his boxing iq up, he coulda wooped him. Floyd has a way better boxing iq than Zab, and he will beat Cotto if and when they were to fight

Of the guys @ 147 (and 140 with Hatton), with the exception of Paul Williams, I think Cotto gives Floyd the most problems.

WRONG!

He has the skills in the same category as FMJ and SSM, and they would tell you that too. His speed (hand speed, not foot speed or reaction speed) is greater than FMJ´s. He has more power than either one of them at 147lbs with one punch. He has tremendous pedigree as an athlete.

What he lacks is all on the mental side. Its all mental.

hatton has accomplished more than cotto at this point and so is as worthy as anyone to fight pbf, he did have a poor showing against a slick southpaw in collazo in his first fight at 147 but still took his belt, but he made a top 3 p4p fighter quit and just ko'd a guy in 4 rounds who had never been down and who gave pbf his toughest ever fight. and he's the 140lb ring champ.

Would you honestly rather see Hatton fight PBF than Cotto?
