Stamina is the main thing I would fix about Cotto. He can cut to 147 easy, but needs a S&C good coach to put him in line.
The guy he has now seems to be working, but I agree that he should go to 147.
I do not agree with this myth that he can't make 147, yet he's somehow too small for 154.
Marquez vs Cotto would be a great fight though. Marquez may very well be contemplating this, but I think he owes Pacquaio a fifth fight if Pacquaio desires one.
