no, Oscar was bigger and strong and had an even better jab than Cotto.

And Cotto is 5 years removed from his absolute prime. 2007 Cotto maybe would have been tougher.

Oscar was the tougher fight. Cotto is past his prime-still good. Oscar was past his prime. Still, Oscar was the tougher fight I feel.

Oscar then was a much harder fight than Cotto now. Mayweather has adjusted to the weight better and DLH hits much harder than Cotto. Look at their fights with common opponent Mayorga, whom DLH destroyed with ease when Mayorga had much less wear on him and that was due to DLH being more accurate and hitting harder than Cotto. DLH would have stopped the one eyed Margo in under 6 rounds.

Mayweather wanted to fight cotto for a long time, he is fighting him as soon as the fight was actually possible. You can thank Arum for it not being a possibility until now.

Oscar was a Top 5 SWW and the WBC SWW champ, was much much much bigger than Cotto is. Floyd just seemed tense while he was fighting, and even though he should have won the clear cut UD, he let the judges almost rob him of that win by cruising much of the fight.
yeah, Ive heard him say that it was his 1st time on the mega mega stage and it was a bit of a shock to him. He said he's 10x more comfortable now on the big stage. I think he said that before the Ortiz fight and how he's not going to be ready for that big stage. Its different when you get out there. Sure enough, Ortiz lost it..........lol
