These polls are utterly meaningless, unless you give a concrete definition of "great".

I am a big fan but if we are talking about putting him on the level of the greats like Ali, Sugar Ray Rob/Leonard or Duran, Joe Louis, no way thats a short list.

There is nothing wrong with Cotto not being a "great" btw

he's been a fantastic TV fighter, entertaining, memorable, popular, made millions.

not bad at all

At his peak, Cotto was a winner. He had many flaws so I wouldn't call him a great "fighter", but since he was a winner and knew how to get the win, that's what made him a great fighter; not his technical fighting skills.
