I've always believed this. How anybody could think different about this one is beyond me. It would be very boring with Floyd moving around, jabbing, potshotting with lead rights, tying Margarito up in close, and getting out of the way everytime Tony starts to load up. It would be another boring UD much like the Baldomir fight where Floyd would once again get no credit for his victory and hear from everyone "but you need to fight Paul Williams". The same Williams who has a loss on his record against Quintana, I might add.
Williams loss to Quintana was a fluke in my opinion..He had a really off day..I have always liked Williams since he first came on the TV scene soo I might be a little biased about the loss..Quintana did however expose Williams more than anyone and set up a blue print that Mayweather would be able to follow but able to do it a lot better..Mayweather never needs a blue print since he makes a new blue print for every fighter he fights and exposes everyone..
I think Mayweather wouldn't tie Margarito up on the inside but pick off his shots and hit him with counters..Also,I think Mayweather would be able to handle both Cotto and Margarito with ease..If Cotto tried to box Mayweather,he would end up looking really stupid and if he tried to fight (setting up everything with a jab) Mayweather,he'd have a better chance..I really like how confident Cotto is with his jab now..His jab would be the money punch against Floyd and I also am starting to think his jab is better than his left hook..
If you have the ability to use your jab as a weapon(bust people up and maybe even stun someone) and not just a pitty pat punch,your jab will no doubt in my mind be your best punch..Cotto has shown both those qualities in his jab,he has busted up people and even knocked down a fazed Gomez with it(who had no business being in the ring with Cotto)..In my opinion,the best weapon against Mayweather is a jab even though you are taking a big chance to get countered with his straight right..
