margarito showed the way to beat cotto by taking every shot cotto had and just kept on walking him down. thats what hatton would have to do, possible he could because he has a similar style, showed he could take a shot against tszyu. so as i said earlier, i think it would be a 50/50 fight.
I understand that. But Hatton is not Margarito. A healthy Cotto at 140 beats Hatton. I think Torres is a harder puncher than Hatton and Cotto survive that. Not that Bailey hit Cotto flush, but he took some good shots in that fight as well. We only saw Hatton against a past his best Kotza.

I know. I am pointing out that because Mr Fantastic likes to sht on Cotto all the time and he just want to act like they are the same fighter because the lost to the same fighters. He dont even consider that Cotto fight was more competitive than Hatton fight against the same 2 ATG.
You mentioned a shaky 140 Cotto. Still, I dont think Ricky power is not on the level of Bailey and Torres. But that is just my opinion.
