Re: Wilfred Benitez vs Miguel Cotto
Having watched quite a bit of Benitez over the last few weeks, I honestly don't think he'd have an easy time with Cotto at 140lbs or 147lbs. He wasn't quite at his best at those weights, in my opinion, and Cotto is at his most comfortable when he is allowed time to work. Benitez doesn't set a high pace typically, and although he could hit, he wasn't known for being a knockout puncher. Cotto would do well at mid-range with Benitez. It would robably something like a 8-4 decision in favour of Benitez, if both fighters were primed, but he'd have tough spots, and I wouldn't be shocked if he hit the canvas at some point.
