    Hatton's pace would make it a tough fight for Cotto but Cotto's superior skill would see him through. Heavy jabs while circling and punishing combinations in exchanges.

    Cotto could almost beat him one handed. Hatton has nothing for the jab.

    I guess it's a 50/50 fight if it's in the UK and Hatton is allowed to utilize his MMA skillset.

    Nobody remember how vulnerable cotton was at 140 an how strong Hatton was at 140?? Cotton struggled to make 140 and it showed. At 147 he wasn’t near as vulnerable

    Should really list weight for this hypothetical. Cotto excelled at 147 while Hatton did the same at 140.
    @ 140? Hatton
    @ 147? Cotto

    Hatton who defeated Tszyu would be too much for 140 Cotto.

    At 140 Cotto relied on his significant size advantage to pressure his opponents and impose himself on them and attacking their bodies relentlessly until they could endure no more.

    Hatton would be just as strong as Cotto at 140. Both would apply pressure, but Hatton seemed to be more durable at 140 in his prime.

    Cotto had a shaky chin and stamina issues at 140, and I can see Hatton being to relentless and eventually wearing down Cotto and cracking his chin.

    If the fight is held in Manchester with Diamond Dave Parrish as the ref, its Hatton as he kicks Cotto in the nuts as Parrish stands there watching. Anywhere else and any other ref, its Cotto.

    Now that both are retired, you can see how great Cotto was and how overrated Hatton was, Cotto would've easliy beat him he was better at everything Hatton did, there's no way Hatton could've won unless he had the ref's help like he did against old Tszyu.

    It took a fighter twice as big as Hatton with bricks on his hands almost 12 rounds to stop him, no way in hell Hatton stops that version of Cotto.
