We would probably have seen a more mobile looking Floyd the way he was against Hatton early.
Mosley in '10 was equal to that Cotto fight would have been IMO, because Mosley had absolutely destroyed an uncrackable Margarito who was a massive favourite. Mosley showed a new lease of life and actually destroyed an opponent then confronted Floyd TO HIS FACE in this ring the buzz was off the charts! Floyd just doused those flames too well when he dominated so well - making haters flip flop saying it was a pointless match up.
C'mon dog, you don't believe that. How is a washed up has-been anywhere remotely close to a young prime fighter who was destroying and besting opponents. How is beating Mosley three years after Cotto beat a much better version of Mosley even in the same league.
The stuff people say. Even the buzz for Mayweather/Mosley wasn't all that great. There was some because some stuttering fool walked into the ring, but that was it. Nothing like the buzz when both Money and Cotto were in their primes, young and unstoppable.
Sometimes I just sit back and wonder
