All of which, with the possible exception of Cook, were well beaten.

I'll have to rewatch this one myself, Tin_Ribs. It's important to note that Marco at this point was only a baby at 20 and that he had failed to make weight. He started fighting at 122lbs after this bout. There isn't too much evidence to suggest Marco struggled with southpaws. Manny Pacquiao is Manny Pacquiao.
