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

I wanted to ask this question myself out of curiosity to see responses

Cotto at 154 is bigger sturdier and better conditioned

If Manny fought him like Floyd did and had it at 154 allowing Cotto to gain as much weight as possible Pac would have one hell of an obstacle

Cotto had success vs Floyd but really it was styles make fights, Cotto had a good strategy and style on how to beat a one shot at a time pot shotter who looks to counter

this strategy would not work on a guy like Manny who would just come at him and fire combinations and try to back Cotto up

i think Cotto post Margo 2 has gained back an edge and his corner is way better than the Pac fight and his state of mind may be better

any way Manny still wins maybe not the devastating fashion of fight one but he most certainly wins again

only 1 way to find out i guess
