Paulie Malignaggi, the former IBF lightwelterweight champion has gone on record to give his prediction on November 14th's highly anticipated mega fight between Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto. Malignaggi who himself has extremely solid skills and is always exciting in the ring, feels that Manny Pacquiao is trying to bite off more than he can chew in taking a fight with Cotto.
In taking on Miguel Cotto, Paulie Malignaggi tells Joseph Santoliquito of Ring Magazine that Manny Pacquiao "is definitely trying to bite off more than he can chew."
Malignaggi went on to tell the publication that the arguement can be made that Pacquiao's win over Oscar De La Hoya was a win over a shot fighter. "I know (Pacquiao) beat Oscar but you can make the argument that Oscar was pretty shot by then."
Malignaggi went on to add that Cotto, a fighter he faced in the past hits really hard. "Cotto's punches hurt, believe me I felt them," stated Malignaggi, adding: "I don't know if Manny can take that from such a bigger guy who's close to the top of his game."
So what's Malignaggi's final prediction on Pacquiao vs. Cotto? "Cotto wins by decision in a great fight,” predicted Malignaggi.
Manny Pacquiao vs Miguel Cotto will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. You can catch a live telecast of the fight on HBO Pay-per-view. (Check your local cable and satellite providers for more details.)
