He still has his health, he has his family, does Cotto have anything left to prove? I personally would rather he retires young and lives long. Maybe one more fight to cash out but that's it then. People would say he could be a fight for Lara/Vanes/Angulo/Rosado(maybe) But they should be fighting each other.

Yes, I agree with all you stated but then again what would've happened to him had he faced Bundrage and lost?? He would've more than likely been written off and never would've gotten the Floyd or Trout fight. It will not be a big deal for Cotto to have a loss to Trout (especially if he beats Canelo) and especially not to Mayweather (since he's the best in the world), he should still be able to fight the likes of Bundrage (especially now with his loss) or he'd be smarter to go after Ishe and get that title which puts him right back into contention again and maybe even a rematch with Trout (should he lose to Alvarez).

Considering the amount of money Miguel made facing Floyd and then Trout then I'd say he didn't do a bad job of managing himself into those big money making bouts despite the fact that he lost to both of them.

If he faced Bundrage and lost, then yes, he should've hung them up at that point. Now that you put it that way, losing to Trout wasn't such a bad thing, especially if Trout beats Canelo. LOL

There's absolutely nothing wrong with him losing to Floyd (as we all agreed on), but the thing is, that loss didn't take ANYTHING out of Miguel, which is why people didn't write him off after the loss. He actually looked better losing in that fight, than he did in the Trout fight.

With that in mind, Cotto should've just pumped his brakes and taken an easier fight. Seriously, most guys don't look good losing, and walk away with their health at the same time. Cotto didn't take a beating in the Floyd fight, but still looked good, not many fighters can attest to that.

How would you see a Cotto/Smith fight playing out?

Honestly, I've never been impressed by Ishe and at this stage IMHO I believe that Cotto is too much for him. IS vs MC then you may as well spell KO because I believe Miguel beats him down and stops him in 9 rounds.

Yes, Miguel looked good but he took a lot of punishment vs Floyd and regardless of what people believe that fight took a lot away from Cotto mentally because he was at his highest after seemingly proving after he beat Margo that Antonio had loaded gloves and that he no longer had any reason not to believe in himself after that beating he took and now vengefully stopping Margo in the rematch.

MC went into the fight with Floyd believing he was reborn and could beat anyone at that point, had he gotten a rematch with Pac at the appropriate weight instead of facing Floyd at that time I'd vow to say that version of him would've beaten MP.
