I feel Manny is a great talent, but has had the benefit of catching his recent opponents at the time they were the most vulnerable. His team is thinking that now is the time to take on Cotto, but are basing their belief on Cotto's last fight and not his resume of work.
If one looks more into his resume, you would find that Cotto is a ring general, has a great ability to adjust on the fly, and fights with intelligence. He has strong fundamentals, fighting chin tucked behind an increasingly strong
Manny has developed into a quick in and out fighter with a powerful left and a newly developed right hook. He doesn't adjust his style and this is what will cost him the fight. Cotto also posses superb timing and will catch Manny coming in.
My Final Prediction:
I see Cotto coming forward cutting off the ring and timing Manny with the jab and right hands, following up with hooks to the body. People forget that Cotto has power in both hands and is not just a left hook fighter.
I have Cotto stopping Manny with a barrage of powerful punches by the 8th round.
