Roach: Cotto is Declining, Mayweather May Stop Him

By Michael Marley

According to Freddie Roach, trainer of WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, there won't be any surprises on May 5th at the MGM Grand - when Floyd Mayweather Jr. moves up to 154-pounds to challenge WBA champion Miguel Cotto, who Pacquiao stopped in the twelfth round in 2009.

In the opinion of Roach, Cotto has been declining since the beating he took at the hands of Antonio Margarito in July of 2008, when the Mexican stopped the Puerto Rican star in the eleventh round.

"The speed and the boxing ability will be a big difference," Roach said. "I think Cotto's been declining ever since Magarito beat him up so badly. He's really a bit on the downside at this point. I think Mayweather may even stop Miguel now."
