Quratey was one of my favorite fighters in the 90's IMO he had one of the best jabs in boxing history.
These two are pretty evenly matched Cotto is a strong guy but Quartey was exceptionaly strong.
Gotto go with Ike by late rd stoppage.
Pre-Margarito Cotto was pretty damned good. Quartey was a monster at 147, think Quartey would beat Cotto by close but decisive decision, but no way a lock. Quartey had trouble with stamina late in fights, remember the Carr and Lopez fights, yes he underestimated those guys but still he faded late. Only decisive loss in Quartey's prime was against a bigger prime Vargas, and it was close and he definitely had his moments. His jab was a thing of beauty, he could knock people out with that thing.
