how can you even compare this is rediculous how anyone can even argue about this.
he has to throw those "wide shots" as you call it because pac was evidently faster and constantly moves around. and cotto was throwing looping hooks when pac is covering up and staying on the ropes. that was a classic cotto move when an opponent is cornered. pac busted his eardrums because of that.
cotto gambled by thinking he could beat pac in those exhanges where pac was more faster and accurate. of course, cotto could do all that against lesser opponents but not against pac.
