If their fight had been even remotely close, there may have been a point to this thread. But it was a complete domination, and despite all the usual General Forum melodrama about one loss "ruining" a fighter, Cotto of 2009 was NOT a very different or lesser fighter to Cotto of 2007. The Cotto that Pac fought had beaten Clottey while having one functioning eye, the Cotto of 2007 had struggled with a fighter that Clottey beat, Zab Judah. Pre-Margo Cotto always had trouble with fast powerful punchers and always had a suspect chin/defence, so Pacquiao would always, always have beaten him soundly.
