i think he, like many others...is severely overrating floyds speed...and severely underrating cotto's ability to deal with it. i guess we'll find out who is right or wrong come may 5th.
I been tryna tell you bro, Floyd is going to slice Cotto up. The speed Cotto's dealt with, that you're alluding to, is Judah, Mosley, and Pacquiao.
Judah had success early, but we all know he folds like a beach chair when he gets hit back. Mosley has/had good speed, but not the IQ and boxing pedigree. Pacquiao's speed overwhelmed Cotto, and I know Floyd's hands are faster than Shane's, and I believe them to be faster than Manny's.
There's also much more to Floyd's game than just speed. I think you're overrating Cotto's ability to deal with speed. PayPal bet?
