As Mosley himeslf said, cotto's style is better for him, he's used to guys who try to bully him, I think we'll see some big action in first 6 rounds, and then fight will turn to Mosley backing off to the ropes (becouse I doubt he can go all 12 toe to toe ) while still scoring big shots on Cotto's body and chin. UD for Mosley.
We might see one or few knockdowns but it wont be Mosley on the floor, I doubt Cotto can tag mosley harder than Forrest did in their first fight (and it was perfect upercut).
