Default Could Manny Pacqauio have beaten Miguel Cotto at Jr. Middleweight

Miguel Cotto as of recently has rejuvenated his career in some regards and with Pedro Diaz working his corner he's far from the fighter he was when he faced Manny Pacquaio in 2009.

Spiritually, I think Cotto was in a different place then considering he fighting at a Catch-weight, his corner was highly inexperienced, and he was coming off an extremely grueling battle with Jousha Clottey.

Not to make excuses; However, in a four fight stretch (Margartio, Jennings, Clottey, and Pacquaio) you can ague Cotto was 1-3 winning the return bout with Jennings, but barely scraping passed Clottey in a close fight.

Nonetheless, Cotto at Jr. Middleweight has showed advancement, better trainer, more physical, better strategic advice.

Does the version of Manny Pacquaio who fought Antonio Margarito at 150bs that got busted up and hurt a few times beat Miguel Cotto at 154lbs without a catch-weight.
