Cotto Fight Won’t Show Canelo How to Win, Floyd Says

by David P. Greisman

Floyd Mayweather has often said there’s been no blueprint for beating him, citing his undefeated record. But while Canelo Alvarez has said he is studying footage of fighters who at least gave Mayweather trouble, Mayweather of course argues that those bouts won’t be of any benefit.

In late August, Canelo told media members he was looking at Mayweather’s fights with Miguel Cotto and Jose Luis Castillo.

“I’m looking for ways to penetrate Mayweather’s defense like they did,” Alvarez was quoted as saying at a media workout, according to a news release. “Cotto had success, but couldn’t maintain it. I plan to maintain it.”

Mayweather was asked about this during a Sept. 4 media conference all.

“The only thing he can learn from the Cotto fight is how to lose,” he said, promptly dismissing the question.

[QUOTE=megadeth;13715059]You can refuse to believe it all you want, but facts are facts. Floyd showed in the very next fight that he as his legs and can move the way he wants to. Tell us all what Cotto did so…

[QUOTE=nathan_nall;13715921]I don't think it is Floyd vs. Pacquiao. I think it is saying that the fight with Pacquiao took something out of Cotto, and he wasn't the same fighter against Mayweather as he would have been had he NOT faced…
