That's a tough one but I'd say Floyd. Tyson's style changed and he was getting hit a little more than usual. Floyd on the other hand has gotten better with his style and shows no decline.

I'm tempted to say Floyd, but I think people forget how big of an upset Douglas over Tyson was. You couldn't even wager on Tyson/Douglas in Vegas...

I agree in theory, certainly for a first round KO. And certainly by Cotto, who isn't a one shot artist.

However, Sugared Shane did crack him early (though Sugared obviously hits harder than Miguel) and I don't think Cot will be a 40-1 underdog. (though maybe for a first round KO...)

The odds would be a lot higher for a 1st round KO by Cotto. Especially Floyd being known for defense.

True Verse. Though expect 90% of the "we don't read" posters here to overlook that part of your question.

Not even close......Douglas over Tyson.

Douglas sucked, was never really good or anything. That was a huge upset, the biggest of all-time in my eyes. Cotto is past his prime-still good, but at least Cotto is still a good fighter, has a shot to be in the HOF one day possibly.

While I understand people saying Cotto over Floyd simply because of Floyd's D and how great he is, NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND THOUGHT TYSON WOULD LOSE TO BUSTER F**KING DOUGLAS, NO ONE, NOT EVEN THE CRAZIEST PEOPLE.

Tyson losing to Douglas was a much bigger upset than any Floyd loss at this point.

Particularly Cotto, who is a quality fighter. It wasn't believed at the time that Douglas was a quality fighter.

The Tyson loss obviously. Mosley already lit Mayweather up early doors so it wouldn't be a huge surprise to see Cotto do the same.
