Wlad is more skillful...
Now let's go through this,
Shane Mosley almost knock out Floyd? While you would be correct if your claim was that he hurt him, but that was the only time he did get to Floyd and he ended up winning 10 of 12 rounds.
Cotto had a lot of success? While I would agree with the notion he was successful for possibly 3 out of 12. And yet he won a clear unanimous decision.
Cheated against Ortiz? While very stupid and arrogant way to win. He did not cheat. A guide line all people who have boxed know is "Protect yourself at all times". While Floyd let anger get the best of him, it was Ortiz who did cheat with a flagrant head butt.
Don't try to bring up skill, when a division that Wlad is in is the most unskilled division in years. Period!
