Cotto IMO is the tougher fight.
Bradley is taking a huge leap in competition. I think the way people see it is Bradley's undefeated, has fought decent opposition, and more importantly...there's nobody else really available that makes sense. With that being said, I think people are looking at the Marquez fight as the beginning of Pac's downward spiral forgetting that JMM is who he is...Juan Manuel Marquez. It'll be an ugly fight, but a fight I see Pacquiao winning based on his overall experience (which is taken for granted on these forums).
Cotto on the other hand, is as experienced as they come as far as the top current fighters in the sport today go. Sure, Cotto's had his setbacks, but as history has shown you can't count out a fighter in the caliber of Cotto. Adding that the fight is at 154 where Floyd has only fought at once (against an older, much less active De La Hoya) and Cotto having built back his confidence, new coach who seems to be the right fit for Cotto, overcoming the black cloud of Margarito, Cotto's mental game and confidence couldn't be at an all time high going into a fight with the likes of Mayweather. Also considering Cotto quite possibly is the best competition Floyd's faced since his comeback against Marquez, I wouldn't be surprised if the fight is tooth and nail until the very end. If you want to see a Mayweather vs Gatti type performance from Floyd....watch Mayweather vs Gatti.
