If we consider the fighters' past five bouts (instead of measuring years or months, which brings Mayweather's long layoffs into play), then mark this category as another notch on Money's belt. Victor Ortiz, Shane Mosley, Juan Manuel Marquez, Ricky Hatton and Oscar De La Hoya make up as impressive a list of victims as you'll find. Cotto grabbed two championships in two different divisions during the same stretch, but his triumphs don't hold the same weight (Joshua Clottey, Yuri Foreman and two washed-up former champs in Carlos Mayorga and Margarito). And although it came at the hands of the great Manny Pacquiao, Cotto also lost once. Not even an argument.
