Actually that has little to do with it although it did happen a short
Cotto would definitely beat Bojado in my estimation, he would do it
1) He could take Bojado's punch.
2) Because he is clearly the more mature, intelligent, and versatile
3) He has longer arms and a better jab which he makes good use of.
4) He has a MUCH, MUCH better defence, better footwork that keeps his
balance while Bojado can be a bit unsteady and he is far better
People may not think of Coto as a master boxer ala Whitaker or
Mayweather but IMO he would take Bojado to school before KOing him
late. Cotto is a very well rounded solid fighter he lacks in no aspect
whatsoever other than having slightly above average hand speed.
Say what you will about Bojado = Chavez/Lopez/Salvador etc but IMO
Cotto shows the potential to me one of the most solid fighters since
The similarities are there, steely focus on being nothing other than a
great Professional Prize Fighter, no wasted motion inside the ring
just textbook MO, great conditioning, solid power, unimaginative but
solid well balanced footwork, dexterity, polished boxing skills,
compact build with strong legs.
Laugh all you want but the next Ali/Hagler/Etc will come one day
eventually and this Cotto kids impresses the hell out of me and who is
to say he won't be special, his focus, versatility and maturity after
so few fights impresses me more than Bojado's flashy fists and 100 KOs
in a row.
