Like many Puerto Ricans Cotto also carries a switch blade, which he will not hesitate to use if need be en route to his TKO victory in the 10th round.

Not sure about the switch blade but I do know he carries a few intentional low blows he won't hesitate to use.

But back to the subject....Cotto wins by late KO!!!! Im thinking anytime after the 8 rd. Mosley will not be able to deal with the style of fighting Cotto brings to the table...

Mosley doesnt know how to change his strategy if things arent going his way. It happened in both Forrest and Wright fights. If he gets discouraged, his corner acts foolish and Mosley doesnt adapt. The only time Mosley showed this trait was against DLH 7 years ago.

If things dont go his way against Cotto expect him to keep catching a beat down until Papa Jack throws in the white towel.
Exactly, this will be an easier fight for Cotto than most people think.

I highly disagree. Winky AND Forrest presents specific stylistic problems that are all wrong for Shane. Shane really has trouble with a fighter who who is taller then him with a good and nice right hand. Cotto's style is NOTHING like them, period. Shane was confused against Winky's defense, great Jab, and right hands... and Forrest with his style just had his number, his Jab was excellent and his right hand had excellent accuracy and is power (his best pnuch). Cotto is a pressure fighter and wares you down. He doesn't have awesome defense, doesn't have the power in his right hand like forrest had. Really Forrest has a underrated uppercut, he has a lot of pop on it, really it was the uppercut that had Shane almost out in their fight. That same uppercut had Ike hurt bad and he was holding on for much of that round.

Cotto's power is not excellent, it took him 11 rounds to KO Judah who doesn't have the best chin and he was hitting him cleanly the whole fight. Shane is much more durable then Judah, and Cotto's style is ripe for Shane. Only thing is Shane is 36, in his prime there would be no way Cotto could win. Shane was more of a punsher then a boxer. Time will tell, but I am saying this right now, you can't apply Forrest and Winky to this, it just doesn't add up style wise.

Look at his fight against Oscar, he adapted in the fight to pull out the victory. But that first fight Oscar fought him like a puncher and not a boxer. Cotto can't out box Shane, remember shane has trouble with people with quick Jabs and movement (defense in the case of Winky), he doesn't have to worry about these things with Cotto. Cotto is pretty much there to be hit the whole night, if you can take the incoming pressure, and I think Shane can.

If Shane rocks Cotto, Cotto is going to get KO'd, period.

Why not? Collazo easily outboxed Shane in round two, and was even starting to clown him. Shane looked discouraged after that round. Collazo hurts his hand in the following round, and you still think the injury didn't make a difference?

Just my opinion. Collazo is a slick southpaw that would take anybody a few rounds to get used to. People act as if Collazo stopped fighting all together after he hurt his hand which isnt the case at all. Mosley figured out his timing and started to counter at will with those combinations. The fight may have been closer had Collazo not injured his hand but I still think he would have lost.
