Honestly, not taking anything away from what Shane did to Marg, but Cotto could have fought a similar fight. So even thought Fraudarito is a cheating mutherfucker I still think Cotto could have beat him. I've gone back and forth so many times about this fight, that I'm almost ashamed of myself. But theres no doubt in my mind now Cotto was and probably still is a better fighter than that cheating burrito eating, laxative taking before a fight, cement glove having, smirk having after being pummelled like a nerd for his lunch money cocksucker.
Although the tatt designs are nice, I am just not one for them, particularly the kind that cover so much on a body the way Cotto’s do.
“Honestly, not taking anything away from what Shane did to Marg, but Cotto could have fought a similar fight.”
Cotto fought what I thought was a similar fight. He got in the ring, punched, moved (looked good, in fact, for a ways in the fight), and was ultimately overcome in the end, to an extent unlike ever before…almost as if something abnormal was being used against him -- some say. Sounds like you made your determination on the basis you feel there is absolutely no possibility Margarito wore illegal wraps against Cotto. I thought we didn’t know for sure. Nah, couldn’t be. Right?
“So even thought Fraudarito is a cheating mutherfucker I still think Cotto could have beat him.”
It seems apparent folks maybe then take it you’ve sparred with Mosely, which involved your using your own plaster of paris wraps to note his chin is sturdy enough for up to at least 11 hard rounds against your relentless pressure.
– just bein’ silly, of course.

On the serious tip, as have others, I’ve thought about it like you, and I still feel unsure of whether it’s all conclusive both fights may be weighed through equal comparison because of what we do and don’t know about certain circumstances involved in each. The question is still there, unlike for Mosely, of whether something illegal was worn by Margarito in the Cotto fight. What we don’t know is how much Mosely would have been affected had Margarito tagged him the few times he did over 12 rounds with loaded gloves of the kind he may have worn against Cotto. Maybe Shane would have taken the shots and still won…maybe not. Great we didn’t have to watch him go through the testing process to see.
