Mayweather: Cotto is Tougher, He and Canelo Hit Harder

By CARLOS ARIAS

LAS VEGAS --- The big question on everybody's mind after Marcos Maidana pushed Floyd Mayweather to the limit was this the toughest fight Mayweather had ever been in?

"Toughest wrestling match," Mayweather said.

Mayweather pulled out a majority decision over Maidana, but Maidana had many moments where he appeared to have Mayweather in trouble.

"Miguel Cotto is tougher," Mayweather said. "I'm not going to lie. That's one thing I'm not going to do. Miguel Cotto is a tougher fighter and he hit harder. Canelo hit harder than him (Maidana). Yes, Canelo hits harder.

"Like I said, I take nothing away from him. He's tough and he's very, very rugged. Now, I could have made this fight very easy, but it would have been boring and I didn't want to do that for the fans. These fans are paying serious money to come out here and support the fighters, so we gotta give them what they want to see. ... Canelo hit with a left hook that I still feel."

Duran, SRL, especially Pryor would beat Floyd with pressure.
