sorry for the trouble bro! - hishaam15 
Default They criticize Mayweather for using the ring but Cotto....

Cotto was "effectively" using the ring in his battle with Margarito (a fighter with protions similiar to DLH; height, reach advantage). When Mayweather used the similiar approach in his fight with De La Hoya (height, reach advantage) he was considered a "runner". Does this bring to fruitation what he says about certain biases? DISCUSS...

Cotto did trade though and went toe to toe occasionally, he WASN'T potshotting and past round 6 it was more of a toe to toe battle. After watching last night Mayweather would beat Margarito but it would be boring.

Yep I feel the same way, Cotto was already outboxing Margarito, but he could not keep it up. Mayweather is a better conditioned and quicker guy, he could box all 12 and walk away with decision. But I wonder if he could shoulder roll & slip all of those power punches after they are thrown again & again?

It doesn't matter at the end of the day. Trading with Margarito left him bloody and battered. Boxing isn't about going toe to toe. It's about doing what you need to do to win.

If you think Cotto speed, accuracy,and defensive foot were exceptional.

Just Imagine Mayweather would have done to Margarito.

Mayweather 20x faster than Cotto
Mayweather 50x more accurate than Cotto
Mayweather 1000x better defensive foot work better than Cotto.

This is the point some people dont get when looking at Mayweather.
The only way for Floyd to be consider to be a in FAIR FIGHT.

is a fight in where he is at a huge disadvantage in some area.

Think about that.?


NAME 5 OTHER FIGHTERS IN HISTORY THAT HAD THAT
PERCEPTION..!!!!



Why is that Floyd mayweather can not be in a fight where he is not at a huge disadvantage. in order for it to be a fair fight.

But nobody says anything where every other fighter does it.


That perception right there...tells you how great he is...
The Perception is, Floyd has to fight at a disadvantage for it to be a fair fight.!


AND THE ONE TIME MIGUEL COTTO HAD TO FIGHT AT A DISADVANTAGE...
HE COULD NOT HANDLE IT.!!!


THATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GREAT FIGHTERS, and GOOD FIGHTERS..
Thats the differences Between Legends and non legends
THATS THE DIFFERENCE between Mayweather and Cotto.

Don't you see what lost the fight for Cotto was well, Cotto! He screwed up, wrong gameplan for Margarito. When going back Cotto had no plan whatsoever and couldn't clinch to rest. It was like swimming 100 meters on one breath. What he did was spectacular yes, but it was wrong! And it lost him the fight.
