I'd like to see this fight. Cotto has to be the favorite but Cintron can really punch. It'd be a very interesting fight.

50/50 fight. People who say Cotto knows Cintron needs space to set up his punches seem to forget that although Margarito could get very close to Cintron, he has been decked with some monsterpunches. It is one thing that Margarito could walk straight through them, I dont think Cotto can without any effect. The quote about Cintron only throwing 1,2 and then covers up was quite funny, but Cintrons 1,2 is extremely good.
What i think is, this is a bad matchup for Cotto if he really plans another fight this year. His body will need time to heal. If Cotto - Cintron takes place 2008, my money is on Cintron. Cintron is underrated. He had a terrible tactic vs. Margarito though. He never clinched and let Margarito pound his body. No ring smarts at all. Like the way he fights though.

I never discredited Cintron like most Boricuas did after his losses, but it's because I knew what a machine Margo was and they didn't until he destroyed Cotto.

Imagine if Cotto would of fought Margo with the guts and balls that Cintron did. How long would of Cotto lasted then? I'm not trying to discredit Cotto, I'm just saying Cintron isn't a chump like many make him out to be.

Cotto has the better skills out of the two Puerto Ricans, Cintron has the bigger punch. If Cotto were to fight Cintron the way he did against Margo he would stop Kermit in the late rounds. But it's to be seen, can Cotto still fight like that or will he be affected by the loss.

Cotto will take a UD against Cintron, reason being is he'll probley be too cautions. But if he comes out determined, he could KO Cintron (or get caught himself). Remember in the second fight against Margo, Kermit showed the better boxing skills (than Margo) so it's a matter of who got more taken out of them against the Tornado.

One thing for sure Puerto Rico will be the winner between this match up!

Should be a pretty good fight, the problem with cintron is that he can give a punch but he can't take one, thats why i think cotto will wear him down and finish him late.

its all going to end in tears .... again

I fancy Cintron for this.
I dont think Cotto can withstand the firepower that Margo stood up to.
Margo made Cintron look weak willed and fragile,doesnt mean the rest of the division can.

How can you say 'everyone'?
I didnt,you didnt,plus many others didnt either ;'everyone' is an absolute,so you are wrong.
Why do some people put 'everyone',instead of 'many','some' etc?

Cotto will win by a middle rounds stoppage, he's too much of a body puncher and pressure fighter for Kermit.

I got cotto by stoppage not sure what round but i think once cintron gets frustrated he is going to give in.

With the welterweights (who are my favorite weightclass by far at the moment), it could play out like "Rock, Paper, Scissors". Margarito would off course be the Rock I can see Cintron pull it out vs Cotto or vice versa, i can imagine Margo losing another one vs Williams. And i would favour Cotto over Williams. Interesting clash of styles. The welterweights rock !

This is an impossible fight to predict, who knows how either man is after coming off of TKO losses. Personally I would see it affecting Cotto worse. Cintron is the wrong guy to get in there with if you're Cotto, say what you want about him but he hits hard as hell and 2 KO losses in a row would be quite difficult to come back from.
