Default Mosley vs Cotto

Originally my take on the upcoming fight was this...Mosley will start off strong sweeping the first 5 or 6 rds. Then Cotto would come on strong after that to make it a close fight to the finish. Mosley would weather the storm and win a close UD.


After watching more video on Cotto...Mosley is going to whip this dudes ass possibly stopping him in the process. Yes, Cotto applies constant pressure. Yes, Cotto has good power and works the body well. IMHO though, Cotto has a very ABC style that Mosley will exploit in a big way. His chin is exposed too much and too often. Mosley will test that chin several times throughout the fight. Cotto has been on rubber legs in the past and when was the last time you saw Shane have a fighter on queer street and not finish him off?
Just wanted to go on the record and change my pick to Mosley by KO. flame away...

Dude, I am a HUGE Cotto and Mosley fan.
They are 2 of my favorite 4 fighters.
I really thought this fight was going ot be 50/50 but more and more I feel Shane is gonna stop Cotto for the reasons you wrote.

I am going to this fight and I can't wait!

The one thing most people forget is that Cotto had been rocked and stunned by Corley, Abdulaev, Torres and Judah. If there is a fighter who could finish him off and hurt him again it would be Sugar Shane.

That's it Trouble!!!!

You've convinced me, after reading that first post I can't see anyway Cotto can win. I'm betting my dog fighting ring on Mosely.

Cotto is the younger hungrier fighter. This is the coming out party for Cotto to become an elite fighter. Mosley is no pushover and wont quit in the later rounds like Jdah, but I think Cotto is going to do it. This is going to be a classic. I see it as a grueling war with both hitting the deck, and Cotto stopping Shane late in the fight.

Viper had Shane out on his feet and couldn't finish him.

I doubt Cotto will have Mosley out on his feet to begin with.

But we shall see.

I do expect a grueling war though, for as long as it lasts, thats for sure.
