LOL let this kid mature 1st before mentioning him and Cotto fighting. He looks good, but keep in mind, the kid still hasn't fought a live dog yet. He fought a 40 yr old Carlos Baldomir who hasn't been relevant in years. It's as good of competition as Ortiz had against Harris (maybe not as BAD, but you get the point).
Something tells me though that they're gonna throw this kid in with the wolves sooner than expected and he's gonna get hurt. Cotto right now or even a year from now IMO has too much experience and skills that Alvarez may fold. In a few years, that definitely could change if he's brought up properly (which GBP has been so-so at doing with their stock of guys).

If he can crack Baldomir's sturdy chin with one shot he can stop Cotto. How he would handle Cotto's boxing skills is the question. He hasn't fought an elite boxer-puncher yet so it's premature to say he would beat Cotto hands down. If he can beat an A level guy with a good jab and footwork then Cotto is in trouble.

not in a yr. maybe in 2.
cotto has better boxing skills, a more active jab, better footwork and laps saul in the experience dep't.
cotto's got a much tighter style with less holes defensively. as great of a puncher saul is, he still unleashes hooks from too far and can be countered in b/t shots.
one thing that he DOES have over cotto though is his two fisted power.
maybe steward will finally help cotto develop that right hand, but i think its too late for that.
