    It hardly disqualifies him from a toughness conversation that he was stopped by Tony and a peak Pac or that he was hurt by Ricardo Torres and stunned by Judah. All of those guys can bang, and it took 11-12 rounds of attrition for Tony and Manny to put him away.

    Could he be hurt? Sure, but not just by anyone, and putting him away wasn't so easy. Cotto behaved like a diva as his career wore on, but he was far from a creampuff in terms of ability to absorb punishment.

    Floyd's power at 147 is about a 6.5/10. No one ever just walked through his shots, or was willing to absorb some of his blows so they could land one of their own, or just shrugged off a flush power punch or combination. He fought plenty of guys with good chins such as Mosley, Maidana, and Canelo who mysteriously stopped dead in their tracks and had their head snap with sweat flying when they got caught flush. Meaning he obviously hit hard enough to get their respect.

    Holds him back how? From being undefeated, multiple World Champ and the most profitable fighter ever? Again, holds him back how?
