I agree in here. Some guys would say Cotto's not the same fighter because of his lesser aggression but the tactical Cotto was better than the aggressive one. It will favor Pac more when Cotto goes more aggressive.

He improvised his skills (the Margarito symptoms may have caused this though). Cotto's boxing gameplan would have been effective against Pac should he have used it the whole fight. He could have won.

The classic Cotto (which was appealing and was what obviously the fans were looking for) wouldn't work against Pac as how I see it.
