Lightbulb Myth Buster Series Pt 1: Miguel Cotto one of The GREAT fighters Floyd avoided?!?!?!

Do you guys remember wayyyy before Manny Pacquiao was ever considered a legit opponent let alone an actual threat, Cotto, Margarito & Williams were all supposed to be the guys who had what it took to be Mayweathers toughest opponents. We will focus on Miguel Cotto right now. Since 2007 lets see what the MOST Feared and ducked Cotto has done...

Cotto although ko'ing Judah in the 11th round he was getting busted up by the non combination puncher Zab who landed %57 of his POWER SHOTS. Zab busted Cotto up in the process of him getting knocked out. He fought to a draw with Mosley. The fight was so close many thought it was a draw or couldve went either way. Cotto was in full retreat mode at the end as well....

Then Cotto gets beat down and quits vs Margarito who is nothing but a pressure fighter who is slow. Then he gets busted up by the ultra defensive Clottey. We all know the whooping Manny put on him after that.

No way any version of Miguel Cotto from 2007 would've been any match for Mayweather....ALSO REMEMBER COTTO WASNT READY FOR MAYWEATHER IN 2005 WHEN THEY WERE BOTH CHAMPS AT 140 AND BOTH PROMOTED BY TOP RANK. I mean he wasnt ready right? So between 2005 & by the time he fought Mosley in 2007 Paul Malignaggi, Carlos Quintana, Oktay Urkal, & Zab Judah were the preparation he needed to be ready for Mayweather?? Gimme a break....

Since being smashed my Pacquiao, he FINALLY beat an ACTUAL World Champ and didnt get a Championship by winning a Vacant title when he defeated the Hard Hitting/1 Legged Yuri Foreman who has an impressive 8 ko's......I appreciate Miguel Cotto and he has had great fights but he has always been just a decent fighter and never was the elite type fighter to impose any kind of legitimate threat to Floyd Mayweather.

His best win is a disputed victory over Shane Mosley who just dropped back down to WW from 154lbs and didn't even have a title. It took him 37 fights to FINALLY beat an ACTUAL World Champ and even then the caliber of that opponent is c class at best. I respect Cotto for all that he has provided us boxing fans but just because you are a warrior and are tough in no way equates to you having the necessary skill set and smarts to beat Mayweather.

Can we all just put this particular myth to rest?

It's a shame the fight didn't happen. I think it would've been much more competitive than any of his fights starting from the Oscar fight on.

I doubt it....Maybe for the 1st 4 rounds...after that it wouldve been a beat down. Cotto is too easy to hit, he gets bruised, busted up and cut in pretty much every fight. Mayweather would have picked him apart.

It's a shame that fight never happen at 147. Also Cotto-Hatton would have been another great fight at 147/140.

if top fighters only fought guys who could beat them , they'd have very few fights.

whether cotto or marg could have beat floyd is irrelevant. the fact is they were the top fighters in the division and deserved a shot.

Cotto-Hatton @140 wouldve been a great fight. Both of those guys ducked Mayweather when they were all champs at 140.

Easier said than done. That's why it's better to say "I beat the guy" than saying you would've or could've. The history books unfortunately don't have those sections.

Man EVERY Fighter beats Cotto up....why wouldnt the most accurate boxer do so?....Also the history books will show that Cotto was NEVER a legit threat. All you have to do is look at Cottos opposition since 2007 and how he fared vs them. Cotto has never beat an ELITE champion who held a belt. He has no defense and retreats when the going gets tough. Slow hand speed and same combinations over and over. Look at what Clottey did to him. Landed right hands at will and uppercuts....Mayweather would shred Cotto......

WHO HAS COTTO BEAT??
