Exactly. Pac is still faster than Mosley and Pac shoots punches from all angles which makes him incredibly hard to time. Mosley is not that type of fighter. You can see his punches coming as they are conventional punches. Easier to time. Besides Mosley only had a right hand all his life and a wild left hook. He had no jab and his foot work is **** so really JMM would only have to worry about a straight right and that leaping left hook.

Cotto doesn't have it, and I'm not sure he ever did. He's always been a B Class Fighter, and never good enough to unify.

Marquez would turn a prime Cotto's legs into jelly off a counter in rounds 3 or 4. That would be the beginning of the end. But, it's nice to dream. The build up to this Mexican v Puerto Rican matchup would have been epic.

You are typically a very sane poster. What is your breakdown on this?

I can't pick. Marquez likely has the superior craft on the inside, so a phone-booth fight would have him scoring higher on points, but probably taking more damage due to the thunder Cotto's packing, especially to the body. Cotto's jab would eventually get timed by an overhand right he runs into as he steps into it, and while he's not as universally vulnerable to uppercuts as people suggest, most pressure-fighters are, and JMM would find his mark. Not hard at all to imagine Marquez putting him on ***** street once or twice. The trouble is, Cotto could choose not to oblige JMM on the inside right away, and use his trademark boxer-puncher mentality to throw from the outside, and then throw hard combintions up close before resuming range. That makes things hard for Marquez. And while I see Marquez landing cleaner shots over 12, Cotto would land harder most of the time. A knockdown is possible, or even just a handful of obvious wobbles, which hurts Marquez's chances of winning a decision.

Refuse to pick a winner. Either can get stopped and a decision result would be hard to accurately predict. But like I said, neither man is coming out the same. Marquez's head and body would be absorbing very heavy blows, and Cotto would be getting peppered by sharp accurate shots that cut him up and bruise him all over. I wouldn't be surprised if both were somewhat gassed by the 8th, two of the best body punchers in the game today.

So Cotto is too small for 154 but too big for 147?

What the **** division should he fight in?

You mean Cotto himself when he asked Margarito to fight him at 150?

That one?

Oh, you mean, Cotto was a fake ass champion at 154, like Mayweather who's a fake ass scared ass champion and instead of taking a tune up against Angulo or Kirkland, has to fight Guerrero who is garbage.

Sound about right?

You do know that JMM and Cotto are the same height and have identical reach right?

It's like choosing between your mom and dad, who you love more. Bogotazo just can't do that, he loves both to death, and both are probably his most favorite fighters.

Bogo Knows JMM Late TKO, or UD, he just can't say it.
