De La Hoya will feel threatened because he wants and needs this fight more than Mayweather does. De La Hoya thinks he's Puerto Rican now and has stated that he will not fight one of his countrymen. That rules out Cotto.why would de la hoya be threatened? I don't think De La Hoya has any reason to feel threatened. Yeah Floyd is undefeated but he has Cotto in his choices and if Floyd retires he stepped down. Cotto's the biggest one out there if he beats margarito.
