Default Cotto. VS Mayweather. Playout/Predictions

I am a huge fan of Miguel and have been since 2003. I also really admire Floyd's style and slickness as a fighter, def not his out of ring antics and choices of opponents but there's no denying his skills as a fighter and maybe best defensive fighter of all time.
Now anyone that knows boxing know that Floyd is a counter puncher and in recent years hes gone away from throwing combos and instead waits for opponents to throw and pot shots them to defeat with a quick right as a counter but very rarely throws first and if he does it's more of a faint to set up a counter. Now think back to Miguels 2 losses. Manny and Margarito are both fighters that love to pressure much like Miguel used to do with opponents prior to his 1st defeat to loaded gloved Margarito. But when Miguel fought guys who prefer to sit back and counter, he ran through his opponents. Some were tough but he got the W. Miguel now fights more conservative and picks his chances which if he does vs Floyd it will be a boring fight to watch bc unless pbf is on attack for 12 rds he won't leave too many openi gs. However, if Miguel combines his work rate of old( which includes going to body Like he used to) and does so in a smart and strategic fashion, he has a chance. Watch floyd when he goes into his Philly shell defense along the ropes. He leaves his right side of body open to liver shots. Miguel's body punching w his left hook was the most feared punch in boxing from 04 to 08. This fight in my mind is so up in the air contrary to what a lot of people are saying. Floyd will not knock out Miguel bc he doesn't put pressure and that's the only way to beat Miguel unless he just pot shots him for 12 rds which is a possibility if Miguel just waits for openings instead of mixing it up and going to body and getting in and out. I've been wanting to see this for 4 years. Better late than never right
