He's never really gone after Cotto, that's true. But this was too much. I also don't believe that the "Money" persona is who he really is, but he's certainly a bit more brash than the average person (as most fighters are.)
So I really don't know.
Not true pal. Floyd is 35 right now, and this age is the exact one where you start seeing fighters start taking clear downturns in their physical skills.
Floyd, because he takes such good care of himself, may end up being more like Bernard Hopkins than Roy Jones as he ages, but he's still going to find himself in a few more brawls than he's accustomed to as his reflexes slowly start to erode.
It makes for more exciting fights, no doubt, because he will HAVE to fight more as opposed to potshotting and slipping, which is a style that will give him problems as he slows down.
His father has said much the same thing in recent days, I was looking for the interview but couldn't find it, so here's a similar article about his statements:
I haven't heard much about his hands being brittle in the last few years, really since the Ricky Hatton fight. The one thing I will say is that his style changed as he went up in weight, and he became more of the aforementioned potshotting, counterpunching, defensive minded fighter that he is now instead of the high-volume, boxer-puncher that he was at lightweight and below.
Part of this, I believe, is that as he faced harder punchers, he began to think more in terms of winning on points instead of knocking guys out. I think he's still got the physical power to knock a guy out, I just think that it takes more punches at heavier weights, which will leave him open to be countered himself, so he doesn't do it as much.
He knocked out Hatton, and Ortiz, at welterweight, so I have to believe he's still got that power.
