Roach: Mayweather Can't Move, Cotto Knocks Him Out!

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach is convinced that his version of Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32KOs) would knock Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs) out.

Mayweather, who simultaneously holds the WBC/WBA titles at welterweight and at junior middleweight, won a twelve round decision over Cotto in May of 2012. Cotto captured the WBC middleweight title last Saturday night with a tenth round TKO of longtime beltholder Sergio Martinez.

"It won't be the same fight. Miguel would knock him out this time. Mayweather can't move anymore. I don't think he can get away from Miguel's punches. Miguel would get him out of there, but I don't think he'll fight us. I think he'll fight someone else, but I would love to get that fight for Miguel," Roach said.

Mayweather has a return date of September with no opponent named. Cotto is being targeted to return on December 6 or December 13.

Strange. Mayweather is slowing down and the more ringworn Cotto is miraculously speeding up.

[QUOTE=MrP4P;14650615]Reread your post, because I see the point you are trying to make but it also seems like you're saying this version of Cotto would give Mayweather more problems than the other version of him, however.. you also make it…

[QUOTE=checko12;14649267]I remember Floyd saying Cotto was his hardest fight. This version of Cotto would be dangerous for him.[/QUOTE] Don't know about you guys but I see the same Cotto. Just a little more aggressive. There's nothing majestic about Cotto's resurgence,…
