Boxing trainer Freddie Roach has said before that he thinks Miguel Cotto would’ve defeated Floyd Mayweather back in May 2012 had Roach been working with him at the time.

Now that Cotto has become the lineal middleweight champion with a 10th-round stoppage of Sergio Martinez, Roach was again asked about a Mayweather rematch. He doesn’t think that it will happen — and part of that is because of his assessment of Mayweather’s win over Marcos Maidana this past May.

“All you got to do with him [Mayweather] is just get in shape and just beat him to it all night,” Roach told reporters after the Martinez win. “I think his legs are gone. He says he fights, he doesn’t move anymore because he wants to please the fans. I think that’s bullshit. I think he just can’t. I think he’s shot. I think he won’t fight any of my guys.”

Even though Mayweather topped Cotto by unanimous decision, Roach doesn’t foresee Mayweather being interested in a sequel.

“He’ll come up with some excuse,” Roach said.

[QUOTE=The Big Dunn]If he doesn't take the fight its a duck. If he does take the fight its a cherry pick. that about sums it up.[/QUOTE] Here's another one: If he fights in the pocket "he's a shot fighter." If he uses his footwork, "he's a runner, he's scared."

It makes sense to say that on a number of levels, now listening to it is another matter.
