The question was 'could Pacquiao have beaten Cotto at JMW'
and my answer was based on the fact that Pacquaio has never fought at 154lb, there's a big difference between fighting Cotto at 145lb (the lowest weight Cotto has fought at since he beat Malignaggi at JWW in 2006) and a 154lb Cotto. I said it from the start that these silly catchweights team Pac always wants would come back to haunt them.
