and in all honesty the thought that he was busted looks like it ****ed his head up. How would it not. You can go to prison for that I thought.

I will also say is Margarito was a beast around the time he fought Cotto as well though, he wasn't that slow sloppy puncher his is now, although he was never quick, just watch his sparring videos with Mora..he destroys him utterly.

I know. I thought that.

I just put him in their on the basis he had a few years under his belt and is better than Cokes.

But that's a good point I guess Cokes should replace him especially considering the 70's was Napoles' time.

No. Pacquiao beat him up, then cotto stopped him. But, Mosley, by far and away, ruined and destroyed Maragrito and created both the beating for Pac and stoppage win for Cotto. From that moment of the first massive body shot that Mosley landed in the first round that doubled Marg over, his career was officially done.

He took many more brutal bombs, flush, over and over that would have broken every part of him down from Mosley than he did from either latter fights. A prime Marg, coming of the greatest win of his career was flat out annihilated by Mosley. Beaten up, knocked down and then knocked out. He wasnt getting up from that last knock down when the ref jumped in. No one else got close to doing anything remotely resembling that to Marg. That was truly one of the single most brutal beat downs in WW history from a challenger against the champion.

Mosley ate the nut and left the shell for Pac and Cotto to feast on.
