I'm not saying it's all Maiiiiiiiiiiii's fault, but remember when Cotto was on a tear, doing his thing from c.2004-2007? Floyd was fighting Henry Bruseles, the Argentinian mini cab driver, and Sharmba Mitchell.
Now, I'm not saying that Cotto would have won, don't get me wrong. All I'm saying is, a Mayweather vs. Cotto bout would have been a mouthwatering prospect in '06... but in '12 it was clearly far, far less of a prospect than it had been before.
But say that to a Maiiiiii-ite and they'll self harm over it.
