Weight classes aren't alternate dimensions, but they have much different fighters, excluding the lower divisions like 115 118. Trout is a full fledged JMW, Cotto was a bloated WW. You're trying to tell me Mayweather is the best in the 154 division without beating a single natural 154lber.
Would you call Wlad no.1 at HW if he didn't beat anyone that started at HW, only people moving up from Cruiserweight?
You talk about Cottos wins at 154. What about Trouts? So were suspoded to believe Trout is the best at 154 because he beat bums like Delvin Rodriguez and LaPorto? Cottos still the best fighter on Trouts resume to this point.
