Freddie Roach: I hope Cotto get's one in and Knocks Mayweather Out

Freddie Roach thinks that Floyd Mayweather can out box Miguel Cotto, but still wishes someone would shut Floyd up. Freddie said, ""I think Mayweather can out-box him," Roach said. "I don't think Mayweather can knock him out. I hope Cotto does well. I hope he gets one in and knocks him out and just shuts this guy up. Somebody's got to shut this guy up.

"I mean, the guy's like an expert on everything, from basketball to … but I think Cotto is still on the downside a little bit. I don't think he's what he was back in the day. I think Mayweather will out-box him, but I don't see it as being a really exciting fight, though. Mayweather is never in a really exciting fight anyway."

Manny Pacquiao ended up stopping Cotto in the 12 round. He feels that Floyd Mayweather should not take Cotto as an easy opponent. Even though Pacquiao stopped him, he let everyone know it was not an easy task and that Cotto hits hard. Even though Floyd says he doesn't take opponents lightly, he will be sure to let everyone know "afterwards" that it was "easy work"
