Not sure. I dont think Cotto is done yet though, i still think he has the skills and ability to bounce back. Im just not sure how much more he can take!

If Cotto gets stopped by Foreman, then we know how past it Cotto is. Yes, everyone knows Foreman has underrated power but I doubt Foreman would ever beat a prime-Cotto. Not that Foreman is a knockout artist, he just has a little bit more pop to his punches then he gets credited for.

I still think Cotto is physically in his prime. His stamina and chin issues were always there, although his chin did benefit from going up in weight.

I think Cotto's downfall is mentally, he doesn't look the same in the ring and appears to be discouraged really easily ever since Margarito made him quit.

E-Steward is going to have Cotto fighting smart like Wlad and take as much minimal damage as he can most likely against Foreman.
So what you are saying is a guy can look better than he ever did but is still past it?

The Foreman fight is gonna tell. He has a better trainer in place and is not gonna be weight drained, so he has some benefits. But on the flip side Foreman poses problems to any fighter, he can box and is much taller and a naturally a bigger man. Guess we find out on June

He's still young, hungry and a lot to prove for Cotto to become past prime. Only here on this site that when a boxer loses he's automatically past prime.
