Default Miguel Cotto at his peak. Would you consider him a GREAT fighter?

How will you describe the very best version of Miguel Cotto?
Would you consider him a great fighter?
Even the very best version of Miguel should not be considered a great fighter(imo). Cotto at his peak was probably a 'very good' fighter.

(Note this is not about resume, just the best version of Cotto in terms of abilities/talent, his resume when it's all said and done could be considered a 'great resume', he still got a few years left)

Good question. Let's take a look at his best wins during his best years:

Bailey
Corley
Torres
Malignaggi
Quintana
Urkal
Judah
Mosley
Clottey

That's a very respectable resume. He's missing a win over an eilte fighter such as Mayweather or Pacquiao. I don't blame him for the Mayweather fight not happening when it should of and Pacquiao is an elite fighter who was just on a hot streak and blasting anyone in his path.

But I would classify him as a good fighter and a strong champion who just came up short of being great.

Cotto wasa a great fighter and ran into plaster hands Margarito. I am certain Margarito had loaded gloves in that fight and Cotto was never the same afterwards.

At his very best he was a very good fighter. But at his worst, he can really be bad and struggle badly with fighters who aren't very good. He's been in wars with some fighters a great fighter shouldn't be in wars with. He got busted up by Zab Judah coming off a 400+ day lay off/loss to Baldomir/Mayweather. Sure he got the win but he got busted up by a very inactive Judah who was clearly too small for WW and his resume proves that 30+ wins-2 losses at 140, 7-5 at 147.

Based on sheer ability/talent, at his peak, I would say Cotto was arguably a great fighter. (I say, "was," because I think Miguel is past his best.) But I think he falls just shy of being called "great"...just shy.

He has never been great nor never will be but he was good enough in his prime to make some pussy named Floyd retire till he got two ass whoopings to fight him.
