Agree with this word for word.

Yep, i also agree^^^He had some great moments, and was/is a very good fighter/boxer, but not enough to be called great overall. Close, though.

Cotto has fought alot of good fighters through out his career. Cotto is a fan favorite fighter a really good fighter but not great. He was never the same fighter after the Margarito fight that fight took a lot out of him. Its really hard to say anything bad about Cotto he has fought everybody.

Floyd and Pacquiao are great fighters. De La Hoya is a great fighter who lost his biggest fights. Cotto is not a great fighter but he fought some great fighters and put up a great fight.
