Default Re: Jeff: If Pacquiao fought Cotto at154 lb it will be a different outcome

There was more of a chance Pacquiao was bloated having to carry an extra 6lbs than Cotto was weight-drained having to lose 1lb from the weight he usually fought at. Had Cotto won, he'd have dragged up a blown-up LW. The winner always gets hated on, the loser gets to have excuses made up for them in this day and age of internet fanboyism
