Boxing Prediction on Manny Pacquiao vs Miguel Cotto By Brutha K (Nov 7, 2009) DoghouseBoxing
I think Cotto wins this one. He's been in there with some really good fighters and he can adjust and adapt pretty well. He also did pretty good against southpaws (Zab Judah, Carlos Quintana). Cotto also has a stiff thudding jab that shoots out when an opponent least expects it. I think this will keep Pacquiao from bouncing in and out like he did with Ricky Hatton and Oscar De La Hoya.
Cotto can be the aggressor or he can counter punch and have success, I'm not too sure Pacquiao can fight going
backwards. So Cotto has more options and I think that's a plus. The X factor will be if Pacquiao can somehow hurt Cotto. I'm not sure he will, but hey that's why this fight is so intriguing.
Contrary to what some people say, I think Cotto has an above average chin and underrated defense. He's been in there with some good punchers and he has always recovered well after being stunned.
I have two other predictions. The first is that this fight will live up to the hype and it will be great from start to finish. The second is that the winner of this fight will earn even more respect than they previously had.
