Default Re: Anybody think Cotto will win then?

Not a god damn chance in hell he beats Mayweather. Doesn't have the footwork, or anything offensively thats a real threat. He's got a good left-hook downstairs but bodywork doesn't overly effect Mayweather due to his defensive technique. You need a very good, long, fast jab to have him off kilter and while Miguel's is serviceable its not good enough.

All you're gonna have is Cotto plodding in, getting nailed with lead rights, hit clean through the middle of his guard where theres a weakness, until he starts to tire and get ragged and loses all poise and gets picked off with increasing regularity. He might start off competitive as Ortiz did but you could see Floyd working him out and the same happens here.
