A TKO most likely comes from a prolonged beating. A KO could happen to a fighter who's never even taken that much punishment before, and it could happen instantly, with the fighter recovering and coming back to fight at the elite level.
So you said the opposite. Martinez, Cotto, Broner getting TKO'ed would shorten their careers. Look at Cotto-Margarito I, that was a TKO/prolonged beating and it is said Cotto has never been the same after that.
