Pacquiao vs. Cotto on Nov. 14. Who Will Win?

By July 21, 2009

Follow me on:

Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is the bout boxing fans need to see to determine - once and for all - who's the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world today. With Mayweather fighting Juan Manuel Marquez on Sept. 19, boxing fans will instead get the bout that most want to see.

Manny Pacquiao will meet Miguel Cotto on Nov. 14 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada. Neither Pacquiao nor Cotto is ever in a dull fight. The two in the ring together is certain to produce fireworks. The bout - at a mutually agreed upon weight limit of 145 pounds - will be shown on HBO pay-per-view. Financial terms were not disclosed but Pacquiao will reportedly receive more than 50% of the money.

Tickets for Pacquiao-Cotto will go on sale in late August.

So who do you think will win the fight? Pacquiao or Cotto? Vote in our poll.

(1) Richard says:

Pacquiao will win. Cotto doesn’t like being pushed back and looks unsteady under constant pressure. “Constant pressure” should be Pacquiao’s middle names. Cotto, though, is tough and it won’t be a second round KO. I don’t see it going the distance and, at the weight, I think Pacquiao will win in five.

One other point. Mayweather and Pacquiao are simply holding out for the prime money time when every network HAS to have it. Smart move, don’t blame them.

(2) Alan says:

I think this fight will be the first time Pacquiao feels a true welterweight punch. I question if he will be able to handle the punches of a heavy handed welterweight like Cotto. DeLaHoya was drained vs Pacquiao and looked weak and slow. Pacquiao can probably outbox Cotto, but unlike the last 2 fights he will get hit in this fight. Marquez had Pacquiao stunned … Cotto will have him dazed and maybe even on his back.

(3) Dean says:

Pacman. TKO. Round 10. As good as Cotto might be, when they mix it up (and they surely will), Pacman will be overwhelming. Cotto just can’t handle the speed and relentless attack.

Manny will wear him down and Cotto will be prime for a late stoppage.

July 21, 2009 at 8:18 am
(4) AC says:

There is no way you can compare Cotto with the fighters Pacquiao has faced. Cotto is stronger, technical, smarter. When he punches Pacquiao in the body and he feels a real puch from a heavy handed fighter, i will tell you a story. I know Pac is good but Cotto is the real deal. He’s 34-1*-27, the only loss is questionable cause Margarito was illegally taped (cheater!!!).

And who cares about Mayweather, who doesnt fight anybody with credentials? He is a waste of money and time. All talk and doesnt step on the ring with the really good ones. Can someone tell me a fighter he has faced with credentials and in his prime? Please im begging for an answer!!! Just look at Pacquiao, Cotto, Hopkins, Trinidad, Mosley….always fighting against top notch fighters. See ya on Nov 14, maybe in Vegas!!!

(5) Albert says:

It’s Pacquiao! SPEED (it kills) is still the name of the game. I saw Cotto’s last fight against Clottey – he was very slow and easily hit. Clottey did not take advantage of the cut, instead he used the ropes to his disadvantage – he stayed there for long time allowing Cotto to gain the upperhand. With Manny, it will never happen, he will pepper Cotto with lots of 1-2 punches to the head. Pacquiao on the 10th Rd by TKO.

July 21, 2009 at 10:10 am
(6) mojo says:

im suprised to see nearly everyone going for pacquiao!
cotto is the true welterweight champion who has fought the best in the sport, he will suprise all you boxing fans when he demolishes pacquiao, he has not felt the power of Cotto or anything near. We are not talking about ricky hatton here or drained old oscar da la hoya, we are talking about miguel cotto truely undefeated and once he finishes with pacquiao, mayweather will soon be next…..
This is what boxing needs, great explosive fights like this!
Cotto to stop Pacquaio in late rounds

July 21, 2009 at 10:35 am
(7) Joe says:

Manny by KO by 10th round or less. I’ve been a boxing fan since I was 7 years old and have witnessed some great fighters such as Leonard, Duran Hearns Hagler, etc. Because of Freddy Roache, Manny keeps getting better each time he steps in the ring. Here is why Manny wins:
1. Cotto ALWAYS has trouble fighting south-paws.

2. Cotto ALWAYS has trouble with speedy fighters.

3. Cotto cannot throw punches going backwards. Manny can.

4. Cotto has to stop and set his feat to throw his power punches. Manny can throw power shots at will, wether he sets or on his toes.

5. Manny has the better footwork, and head movement. Plus….SPEED KILLS. Can’t emphasize it enough.

-peace out boxing buffs

(8) Antonio Sanchez says:

Cotto by unamious decision. Manny never faced anyone like cotto, he’s no hatton, nor de la hoya. And manny did want cotto at his weak state when it came to weight, but cotto knows that, and it’ll be at 145 lbs, right near cotto’s best, and if manny wants to fight cotto at his best, then he has it, and he’s gonna get it. Power, speed, smartness, cotto has fought with the best, and manny will face the best in him. Miguel “Angel” Cotto wins by decision if not by knockout

this is gonna be like a tyson vs hurricane Mcneely… pacquiao=tyson / cotto=mcneely

Pacquiao ko in 1 sec.

(10) Christian says:

Cotto has fought the best at a higher weight not including the true weight on fight night. They said Mosley was to fast, Clottey to strong, Zab Judah all around fighter they all got it handed to them including (Malignaggi,C.Quintana who beat Paul Williams,Pinto,and much more). Cotto’s resume is far more impressive and for you who doubt his power, come Nov 14 as everyone have been saying Pacquio will feel the power of a true welterweight. I ‘am already looking forward to Cotto vs Mayweather(if Marquez, does not upset him) fight in June of 2009!

July 21, 2009 at 1:34 pm
(11) EB says:

Cotto vs Pacman will be a good fight I thing Cotto will put up a good fight.I belived Cotto did not win the last fight right,I mean it look like a draw.Mayweather vs Marquez will be a stuff fight for Mayweather I hope Mayweather vs Pacman fight will happen soon, now that the fight I will pay to see.

July 21, 2009 at 4:28 pm
(12) Taino KING says:

What people dont know is that miguel cotto is going to upset manny pacquiao in thier bout Nov.14. why i tell u y simply because of the fact manny tends to drop his hands when he throws his punches and later on into the fight he will drop his hands even more and like the counter punching boxer that cotto is, i predict a war but with cotto coming out victorious by knock out by a nasty left hook manny’s jaw in the middle or late rounds.. oh yea and just for the record manny HAS been KNOCK out by a left hook early in his carrer back at 106lbs. just imagine a left hook from a 147lb champion that is known for his left hook!!;)idk but thats my opinion.

July 21, 2009 at 4:47 pm
(13) Chacaroy says:

Win or lose against Pacquiao, Cotto is a already a winner. But I am not going to mince my words. Cotto will be another Hatton or Diaz, because he will go straight to Pacquiao flatfooted with hardly any side-to-side movement and bobbing and weaving. We know what Pacquiao did to Hatton and Diaz. I am afraid it’s going to happen to Cotto too.

To emphasize my next point on Cotto vs Pacquiao, I have to digress somewhat. Why do people keep saying Pacquiao beat Dela Hoya because Dela Hoya was drained or wasted? We saw him train, and he trained as hard as ever. He was in top shape as ever. He himself said so. In fact, not very long previously he had fought Mayweather and lost on a split decision. (I thought he won)

The truth is plain and simple: He lost to Pacquiao because pacquiao was too fast for him. He never saw anything like it before. Review the tape several times as I did. Dela Hoya does not look drained but in good a shape as any fighter. He then began looking confused and baffled after the second round, not knowing where the punches were coming from, especially when they were lightning quick.

If he was drained as Dela Hoya’s supporters and Pacquiao haters say, he would have gone down earlier in the fight. He was getting hit with bombs but never went down!

In fact, he didn’t appear to be hurt when he quit on the stool. Why continue when the remaining rounds would only be the same? He was losing every round; there was no point in getting more punches in the face. There was a strong possibility of being seriously hurt and no chance of winning except by highly improbable KO. So he quit on the stool. This was a man confused not a man drained.

Cotto is slower than Dela Hoya. He doesn’t weave and bob as Dela Hoya, he doesn’t box, he slugs. He will not find Pacquioa to slug on, but he is bound to be hit by lighning-quick Pacquiao. Cotto got beaten bad in his last two fights. I think he would have a more valid excuse than Dela Hoya if he lost to Pacquiao.

My concern is, can Cotto withstand another beating? If he does get another beating, will the damage of the previous beatings add to it?

I remember the silence of the crowd and the concern expressed by the TV announcers when Pacquiao KO’d Diaz and Hatton, both with eyeballs rolling up to their heads and white showing.

I saw the Cotto-Clotty fight on TV. Pacquiao saw it up front. After the fight Pacquiao, told Arum he wanted Cotto next. If he didn’t think he could beat Cotto, he wouldn’t have said that.

I am afraid Cotto will get another bad beating. I hope not. Win or lose, he stands to make more than $10,000,000. After taxes, he should have at least $5,000,000. He should retire while still healthy, investing his money wisely. He can live comfortably on the interests.

(15) Dean says:

It’s funny listening to people continually stating that “Pacquiao has never faced anyone like Cotto.”
And COTTO has never faced anyone like PACQUIAO.
I think Cotto supporters are looking at this fight through rose colored glasses.

Yes – speed kills. It’s basic physics:
Force of Impact = Mass x Speed(squared)

That’s why these fast little Asian guys seem to hit like a mule. Speed, baby. And Pacquaio has a ton of it while Cotto does not.

I still maintain Pacman by TOK in 10. Cotto is tough, so he won’t go quickly, but his style will play right into Manny’s strengths.

July 21, 2009 at 8:48 pm
(16) omar says:

COTTO by ko in 7rnds when manny feels @ real walterweight he is going to quit thats 4 sure remember Marquez beat Pacquiao on the firt fight COTTO 100%…

July 21, 2009 at 10:32 pm
(17) cypher says:

Cotto all the way. i don’t know why people think cotto is slow. cotto can hit hard and fast baby. who else put clottey down!?!?!?!? Cotto is the only person!! with a jab!! he’s too powerful!! the only reason he looked as bad as people say, is cause clottey is dirty. you can never look good against a dirty person. he fought with a gash in his face!!! who else can keep up that performance??? COTTO ALL THE WAY BABY!! when pac feels that left hook, he’s done!!! COTTO’S FAST TOO BABY!!!

July 22, 2009 at 6:06 am
(18) The Truth says:

I’m from the philippines and i always bet on manny’s opponent. And man, manny always win. The reason why im not for cotto is because i saw his fight against mosley and man he’s slow. especially in the later rounds. he may be an intelligent boxer, far more intelligent than manny, but come fight night, cotto will be sleeping with the fishes just like hatton.

July 22, 2009 at 6:49 am

Finally,we’re going to see a fight that true boxing fans would like to see.My heart goes out for Cotto to win,but No matter whoever wins this is going to be some fight!I can’t wait to see!!!

The winner is BOXING! This is what we fans want to see! Even though I love Pacman to bits, you got to give it to these two guys; win or lose they have our respect and admiration!

(22) Donovin says:

I see Pac-Man getting to Cotto early and cutting him as Cotto has a tendency of doing. In the later rounds (6 or 7) Pacquiao will begin to systematically break Cotto down and they’ll have to stop it by TKO in the 8th.

That same ending wont be true for when Mayweather gets to Pacquiao. Then you will see why Mayweather is the best pound for pound.

July 22, 2009 at 9:35 pm
(23) phlogger says:

Seems like a mixed bag here. Both bring so much “goodness” to the sweet science and keep us enthusiastic in the precipice of what many call a dying sport. Both have outstanding records. This is not a mis-match by any means. Could go either way but here’s my take:

Although Cotto has tremendous power, he hasn’t faced a premier southpaw and has trouble with lefty’s.

Manny is the total package of balance, speed, power and quickess but does need to improve his defensive skills. Perhaps his stance will be enough to pull him thru in this one. If not, he might get busted up.

Both have fought top-caliber opponents but I have to give the edge to Manny here. Cotto doesn’t seem the same after the loss to Margarito who I believe messed with his psyche a bit, loaded gloves or not.

Manny reminds me alot of Aaron Pryor stylistically (maybe not that intense) but even as ugly as Pryor was, he was effective at ALL angles. And that’s what Manny can do quite well, hurt you with looping shots up high or from down low delivered from places his opponents never saw coming.

You guessed it, I’m for Pacquaio, but I’ll say it again:

Mosely vs. Mayweather ASAP !!!

I predict a monster KO in this one and it won’t be Shane on the floor.

(24) Lito says:

Cotto will KO Pacquiao by the 8th round, BANG!

July 23, 2009 at 10:53 am
(25) armando says:

Pac-man vs Cotto is going to be a fight of who’s going to able to figure out eachothers style. I think Pac-mans speed is going to pose a problem for cotto. But what does a boxer do to slow someone down. HIT the body and no one can do that like cotto. I think cotto’s power is going to pose a huge threat to pac-man. this is going to be the strongest fighter he has ever faced. Theres more pressure for Pac-man to win then there is Cotto. Cotto KO 10 round. Freedie roach is overrated. Cotto go get Mcgirt.

July 23, 2009 at 6:01 pm
(26) nygiants says:

The poll results shows Pacquiao KO Cotto 52%
and Cotto KO Pacquiao 24%. That’s not even close. Twice proven wrong, legendary trainer Angelo Dundee has finally acknowledged Manny Pacquiao as the best there is today.
There’s no doubt in my mind that Pacquiao will
KO Cotto in the later rounds. God bless Manny!

July 23, 2009 at 7:00 pm
(27) Street Sense says:

I think the plaster bastard Margarito took alot of Cotto which is sad. Pac is at his peak, Cotto on the decline.It adds up to one-sided ko for Pac

July 24, 2009 at 10:18 pm
(28) real talk says:

to chacaroy..yea De La Hoya did look confused and disoriented in the fight with Pacquiao..bcuz he was DRAINED..u right we did see him train hard as ever and its possible he OVERTRAINED to lose all that weight..im not sayin Pacquiao wouldnt had won the fight if De La Hoya wasnt drained but it woulda been a MUCH different fight no doubt..as far as the fight with Cotto..Cotto by late KO..Pacquiao about to feel the hands of a hard hittin welterweight

July 24, 2009 at 11:43 pm

Cotto will eat alive little tiny pacman…cotto will take a few girly water punches from pac, i admited but, pac will take heavy trains punches to his stomach that will make him choke all his organs which bloody Cotto will eat.

(31) noirnoticvibe says:

Cotto by KO…. look Paquaio did great against DeLa Hoya..(albeit was weight drained and had’nt fought at 140′s since the mid 90′s) and yes he blew away Ricky Hatton..(who chin was destroyed by the mayweather fight his 1st comeback fight proved that) Pac-Man is exciting but his move up are strategically against shot fighters..however COTTO isnt shot his fight with Joshua Clottey proved that because both Clottey and Cotto are A+ fighters Pac will have moments but Cotto overall size power and indominable will and SKILL will beat the good lil man……

Pacman, 101 % by tko 4rounds ….. i believe manny has an extra ordinary power than ordinary boxer,, please review all his fight… delahoya drained ?? hahaha both fighter had trained they reduced thier weight not in a minute but in a months.. how about the power and quickness of hatton? what is your reason of that defeat? or even all mexican.. pacquiao loss in big fight in his career only to morales while medical and other test happen 1 day before fight, and that fight accidental headbut happened, but he still stand up.. very empressive fight,, but pacman prove it again and again in rematch.. how bout barrera, marquez, etc. are you all blind man.. hahaha !

July 27, 2009 at 2:17 am
(35) Tufguy says:

COTTO WILL DESTROY PACMAN. Pacquio’s legacy is solid there’s no doubt about it, but cotto is a pure welterweigh who packs solid punches. He’s Technically sound, never waste punches, yes he never backs down but definitely have a much stronger chin than pacman. Yes, its true that pacquiao breeze through with his last 2 fights with dela hoya and hatton but you have to consider this facts:
1. In dela hoya fight, oscar came down dramatically in weight to face pacquioa at 147, this guy had never fought at this weight class for 12 years. He’s a natural at 160 – 170. This is significant, and the worst thing the guy is too old to face someone like manny, as a result.. his ass got whooped.
2. In the hatton fight, no excuses hatton is a natural fighter at 140 and he got crushed. The 1 factor that went against pacquiao on this fight is that he was never really tested. especially his chin.. in fact, there was no one in the recent figthts of pacquiao that has the one punch knockout that could have tested his chin..and COTTO Will.
3. When Cotto fought Clottey, he stood toe to toe although bloodied and won in a split decision, this guy is resilient and a true warrior.

On November 14, Cotto will stop his streak and THE PACMAN’s ONLY CHANCE IS TO LOOK GOOD LOSING..

Speed and south paw stance will kill Cotto. Cotto got dropped twice by a south paw. Remember Carlos Quintana.

(38) @rkhuz says:

the unrellenting attack of margo plus the butter on the gloves had destroyed cotto. remove the butter, add speed, mix a little bit of power and more determination, add a little bit of footwork and side movements, put a bit of sudden attacks… sum it all equals pacquiao’s ingredients that retired dela hoya and morales, destroyed hatton and barrera, made marquez a cry baby and let the mouth go scared of squarring it with him. i hope it will be effective on nov 14.

(40) tiberius says:

what else does pac left to prove? the only Asian with 5 championships in 5 weight classes? with opponents ranging from formidable and future hall of famers… …remember when he banged ledwaba-the champion, after only two weeks of notice…when he called out barrera in 2001 and slaughtered him in cold blood……the chopping of morales….twice war with marquez…the brutal beating of diaz…the face wrecking of excused and bear with me delahoya….hatton’s sweet and deep sleep? what else is there to prove critics?

pac is the only surviving crew of a sinking boxing ship….a reason why fans pay to watch boxing-nowadays “sweet science” MMA IS EVERYWHERE, its EXCITING, ENTERTAINING and…….swallowing this sport/industry. we’ve got to face and accept that.
I hope for next decade somebody might come along (like pac of this generation and the rest) to salvage victory for the sport of boxing.

now, manny does not need any of these guys (granpa shane; cotto; and singer/actress floyd) for his own consumption….these guys need manny….because they need MONEY and all the things that go with it. beating the little man from a small island nation is everything.

but, we fans are prized to see two more fights from the pac (cotto come nov.) and maybe a final duet with singer/actress/performer/entertainer/stand-up comedian floyd mayweather….which of course we all love to see.

for pac, respect and gratitude for the humble, small but kind hearted fighter…who gives us a show…a show we all loved to see. technical boxing skills is not the only ingredient to being tag as “great.” its a status put together by attitude.

so…good luck manny and miguel…continue reviving boxing! with an explosive show…come november 2009.

can’t make my predictions…i still have to wait after the official weigh-in results.

July 31, 2009 at 7:02 pm
(41) MR. TRUTH !!! (RAY) says:

Alright people bettin for COTTO might as well send me the money your gonna lose NOVEMBER 14th for better cause. Not saying Cotto is not great because he is 2nd ranked in the Welterweight division followed by Mosely (only because Paul Williams moved up) and deserves credit. But when you compare a boxer with speed, fast eyes, powerful punches, and great defense (ya know who) vs someone really just with stradegy and power body punches the advantage obviously goes towards PAC MAN. First off those of you saying PACMAN fought a washed up de la hoya and a weak ricky hatton are not lookin at the picture. PAC MAN made de la hoya look shitty and hatton look weak because he is #1 pound for pound and this is why he ended them quick. Yea Cotto has had tough fights but after seein him against MARGARIO, MOSELY, and CLOTTEY fighters he could have lost to or did lose to, he really is not ready for PacMan. Pacman will put to much pressure on Cotto and this will break cotto. SO dispite Cotto bein a great body puncher we will see him slowly going down the same way like Margarito did when he keeps taking them hits and he cant take them anymore. He might take a knee like last or finally see the canvass. Cotto is not use to gettin hit alot and now he will. Being the hardest body puncher dont mean nothing if you cant catch the guy, just like having one of the best jabs without bein able to use them… oh yea it already happened. So my prediction is Cotto hitting the canvass finally in 5th round two times. And please dont criticize for PACMAN making de la hoya look washed up and Hatton look bad by Knocking him out in the first round which Mayweather didnt do till the late rounds. PacMan is the pound for pound and the only one who can take the title is the man who outboxed him and can fight PAcMan. Marquez will defeat Mayweather and hopefully get his rematch with PacMan like he deserves unless Pacman ducks him again and shoots for Mosely after he defeats Berto. I believe Marquez is the only one who gives PacMan a hard time and can beat him but we’ll see…

(42) LilDave AllDay says:

People for get that Paquiao started at 106lbs. To make your way all the way up to 145 is crazy. He is the most impressive fighter I seen in a long time. He is not only better than Cotto but he is the best boxer in boxing today. If Paquiao loses its because of 1 punch that hurt him real bad. I put all my money on Pacman$

August 3, 2009 at 11:27 am
(43) twin says:

Power punches to the body and left hooks to the head, will put a stop to pacmans ability of winning this fight. Cotto has fought bigger and stronger boxers, and on top of that he has faced speed as well, such as, Torres, Judah, and Mosley. Cotto has been put down, but has always gotten up. so i dont see pacman knocking Miguel down, and keeping him down. this is no Hatton, this is a PR warrior!!! This will be a great fight, and pacman will feel a great punch, everytime Cotto throws. My prediction, if not the hole 12, MIGUEL ANGEL COTTO, TKO 8 RND!!

August 3, 2009 at 9:17 pm
(44) Eddie says:

In this fight, i choose Cotto by decision. Pacman will give Cotto a fight, neigther will back down. Pacman will do alot of moving around and make it tough for Cotto 2 put him down as he should in the mid rounds. Cotto has great punches that land to the body, and a tremendous left hook. He will bring pain to this fight. On the other side, Pacman is a speed 4 speed fighter and a distance fighter at that. but as i see it, speed is not enough 4 the great warrior of Puerto Rico. Cotto has suffer major cuts n knots, and has proven 2 stand strong 2 the end. If Pacman wants 2 win, i say he needs 2 steal rounds from Cotto by points, or else its 2late, Miguel Cotto !!DECISION!! 116-118

August 3, 2009 at 10:45 pm
(45) PR_CASTRO says:

In my opinion, I think that Cotto could win the fight. He has proven to fight (and beaten) some of the best boxers today. Pacman is also a good boxer and great with speed, but the swift punches of a warrior will slow him down. I agree to the KO by Cotto in the 12th rd.


August 4, 2009 at 7:07 pm
(46) julius says:

I’am a Miguel Cotto fan 2 the end! I agree 2 a knock out by Cotto in the 10th round. Cotto has all the weapons he needs 2 stand strong. YES, Cotto did struggle his last fight against Clottey, but was shown from a huge cut 2 the head, and blinded by blood in the eye. But Cotto did win rounds and earned his points 2 still be proven a great boxer. Pacman will be a tough fighter, because of his speed. He has great foot work, and quick hands. Not only do i want Cotto 2 win cuz im a big fan, but cuz i dont think speed is enough 4 Cotto. Plus he can take lots and hard shots. 2 me, pacmans last 2 fights were not good enough 2 me 4 him 2 be Called the best. But he did win, so i guess thats good enough. Dela Hoya was washed up, old and slow, plus he hardly threw any punches. Hatton was overrated, weak, and has never beaten a tru champion. So come NOV.14 will be Pacmans tru bout since Marquez I & II. I believe Pacman will try 2 take advanage with his speed and come in swinging hoping 2 take the early rounds. Cotto might have trouble in the early going, but once Cotto has connected several punches, Pacman will sume be in the fight 4 his life. Truth be told, body punches 2 the body from Cotto will destroy Pacman and wear him down, and have him lose strength by the 10th round. YES SIRR! My man Cotto, TKO in 10.

August 4, 2009 at 8:10 pm
(47) Justin says:

I like Cotto. Cotto clearly has greater boxing ability and has shown he can fight from both stances and offer different angles. Pacquiao has blinding speed but I think that Cotto’s speed suprises some people. Did he not beat Mosley to the punch when they met? He also has a great ability to neutralize other fighters speed by going to the body and taking their wind. He did it against Judah, Mosley, Clottey, and will do the same to Pacquiao. I don’t think that Pacquiao can take Cotto’s punch either. We saw Pacquiao stunned in the two Marquez fights, and that was a weight approximately seventeen pounds lighter than what Cotto fights at naturally. As we saw in the Clottey fight, Cotto has the power to punch through defenses.

I like Cotto in eight.

Whoever said cotto cant stand pressure is dumb! did you not see what happen to mosley! he got boxed 12 rounds! and what if margarito beat cotto badly every fighter had a bad day even if they win! Cotto to win end of! all this hype about manny! where was he before! no one hardly heard of him! and dont bs and say you did because you didnt as well!

I agree, Cotto is great against pressure, even better when signed to a big challenge. I like Cotto he’s a smart boxer, he has always been favored to win his fights. But now he is not favored, most pick pacquiao, mainly cause of his speed, and movement. But that is just not enough, Miguel has fought with the best and has challenged speed before. He took on Zab Judah, he took time to adapt from Zabs speed but once Miguel counter punched him, he took over the fight, knocked him down and made him throw in the towel. I believe the same will happend to Pacquiao in the 11th round. Pacquiao is much faster then Zab was, but not as strong. Pacquiao has fought great battles him self, but in a different weight class, and now he has picked a war at 145 with a WARRIOR!! I hear Pacquiao is gonna win by KO. No sir, i truely disagree! Pacquiao is not as strong as Miguel, only faster. But like i said before, Miguel has challenged speed before, and will be no difference. Pacquiao is finally gonna feel a real power punch, and a difficult left hook to block. My choice, Miguel by TKO in the 11th round. Pacquiao does have the strenght to go the distance, but Miguel will out punch him in the slug fest in the ring. MIGUEL COTTO (11)

If Cotto can give up his night life, fix his family problems ,put behind the mental violation given by Margarito and gets a competetive corner he might pull something off.Pacquiao is at the peak of his mental state,has one of the best trainers and all the boxing atributes that precisely bother Cotto the most in the ring.It si going to be tough for Cotto which to my eyes is a bit yellow.The Pacman in the fifth.

(51) rob says:

A lot of people are assuming this one is a given for Pacquiao but I’m not so sure. Even with the weight restrictions put on Cotto, Manny never faced a welterweight still in his prime. Cotto looked sluggesh vs Clottey in his last fight but he suffered a huge gash in his eye & Clottey is a very hard puncher…I’d imagine a much harder puncher than Pacquiao. Cotto also showed in the Mosely fight that he can handle speed. He also shown in the past that he’s a much better fighter when he’s moving forward…..vs Clottey & Margarito he was more defensive because they were bigger opponents. Gotta feeling Cotto can definately win if he stays agressive against the smaller opponent.

(52) ATX 45 says:

Cotto WINS!! I believe he will take pacman out in the 9th. Cotto might not be as fast but is much stronger. His problems with his family will do no wrong to his boxing technique, thats y i believe he continues to fight, cuz he has no stress on his chest. Its only the pass. Yes, Pacman has a great trainer, but yet, Freedy has seen pacmans defeats. Pacman is on a roll, but only untill he steps in to da ring on NOV.14 He will face a warrior, and come to his scence that he cant win like he did in his last to fights. It wil go da distance, but sure to stop in da 9th. Cotto has to much power and to much weight for Pacman. Cotto is also on top of his game, and will not back down to no man. He will catch Pacmans speed and will slow him down from his heavy punches. I say Cotto TKO in da 9th. Pacquioa has a real fight at last!!

August 7, 2009 at 9:35 am
(53) Lito says:

Cotto will DESTROY the Pacman, you guys are mindless if you think this little dude is the real deal, he’s not. Ricky Hatton was the product of a payed off Kosta Tzu and a few other meaningless ooponents. As soon as the steroids wear off or when ever the commission starts testing for the designer steroid that Shane Mosley is using you’ll see him on the canvas too! Cotto is legit and the only way he could loose to Pacman is if he takes a dive, sadly he just might because the Mayweather fight is worth a couple hundred mill, so he might make a pretty penney letting Pacman win. I hope he doesnt though. However I can kinda see Cotto getting robbed in a split decision. But if its fair with no bullshyt, Cotto will hospitalize the frail little Asian and then you guys will just get real quiet and not give up the credit, you’ll just look for the next hominidic hope. Well its never gonna happen people!! Dont even talk about how ridiculous Mayweather would make Pacman look, thats more money for Money Mayweather baby, all night long!! LMAO!! Face it, until America encarcerates the rest of the brothas the world will remain on pause because Superman has a tan, period! Dont even mention the Klitchkos there are 500,000 brothas in the pen that would mop the floor with both of them and ya’ll know it….lol

pacman by TKO. i saw all the fights of pacman. he will not stand in-front of cotto’s attack, he will run and fire 3, 4 to 5 combination power punches. he is fast starter fighter, he will finish the fight if he lands good power punches. he is the only boxer that has 5 power combination at a time of attack like he did in david.diaz fight. not-like standing boxer cotto he will like a punching bag for pacman. pacman has the heart to win, even if he knockout by cotto’s punches, he will stand and win. he can take powerpunches, but cotto’s cannot take pacman power of welterweight. pacman has the one-punch knockout power. not like cotto’s need a combination for a knockout. Yeah! pacman will win the fight. will see on Nov.14. hehehehehehe…… cotto’s fans will cry….

August 10, 2009 at 10:22 am
(55) RO says:

Cotto will win this fight. Cotto has more power n more weight, even with pacman tryn to even the scale at 145. Cotto still bigger n stronger. Cotto is bigger then Hatton n is a better puncher at that. Pac has great foot work and fast hands, but cotto will do fine against the speed, he has faced it before n has beaten it. Cotto can take lots of punches, n power punches at that. Clottey was a power puncher, way stronger then the pacman, and cotto took every shot like a champ! Cotto can fight with cuts, he’s proved that in the bouts vs clottey, mosley, judah, margarito, and much more. I dont see pacman KO Miguel, maybe just going the full 12 rounds and winning a split decision if possible. Pacman throws alot of rights,and cotto has a great left hook, and will land as manny throws that right. My bet, cotto TKO at the end of 7. Cotto much stronger, a better puncher, and a true warrior! Hope u pacman fans
ready 4 his 4th lost of his career. Cotto in 7!

(56) Krys lee says:

I like cotto. Much better puncher. I think the way he has proven him self and to his fans since his fall to Margarito, he has made a great come back. I choose Miguel Cotto in the split decision. He will out punch pacman and destroy him connecting to the body. Cotto to big and to strong for pacman. Sorry hataz, Cotto wins in the end!

August 11, 2009 at 10:18 am
(57) Da Twin says:

I keep hearing Pacman is to quick for Miguel Cottto. Tell me, does Pacman have the strength to handle a true welterweight punch, from a guy that has great boxing skills and a tough chin? Pacman is fast, and is a great fighter him self, he has proven to beat some of the best, and is the pound 4 pound champ at the moment. I just dont understand why people say da Pacman will slaughter Cotto. Is that because they R just fans, or do they really know boxing? I disagree! Ya Pacman did beat Oscar, but i saw that fight, and Pac was to quick for that old man, plus Oscar hardly threw any punches. Hatton, come on, he never was so good! He’s never beaten a champ, maybe in UK, but not the best from the US. Hatton was to weak, and had a soft chin, and slow defence. The pac faced great fighters when he was fighten 20 pnds lighter, such as Morales, Marquez, and Berrea. That was real boxing for Pacquiao. Since Pacs arrival to welterweight, he has fought big names, but yet to fight a true warrior like him self. Pacman has a fight on the line this NOV. And this will be the 1 to prove if he’s the true pound 4 pound champion. I honestly choose Cotto to win this 1. I like the Puerto Rican fighter, he has fought some of the best and has beaten them as well. Cotto fell to Margarito, but is on the rise to prove he is still the best. I like this upcoming fight, it will be a classic. Cotto is strong, and can handle in body in front of him. Speed will do no wrong, and the power from him will do some damage. He might be slower then da Pac, but he will connect, and will stand, and give Pac hell. Pac has the legs to keep him standing. But does he have the strength to handle a real punch? I choose Cotto to win, But i believe it will go to the score cards. Unless Miguel comes through with a dangrous hayemaker. I like Cotto!

(59) Texas boy says:

Last comment I saw for pacman was that he will Knockout cotto, and that he will give Cotto the real power punch of a welterweight. that sounds like BS! Cotto has been fighten in the welterweight class for quite some time now, and has felt all types of power punches in his career. He faced Corley, and who was known for out punching his opponents with power. Mosley was a power puncher with speed, and Cotto still came out on top. Margarito was also a great puncher, long arms and great power. Even though Cotto fail to win, he Stiil went 11 rnds of the fight, and took his plasterd punches. Clottey was even more powerfull, and Cotto was too strong to fall to his punches. Pacquiao is a great fighter, he has fought some of the best as well, but he will be faceing another great boxer. cotto isnt so easy to lay down, especially in the early rounds. Cotto is much quicker then Oscar, and will land alot mor punches then he did. And Cotto is way stronger then Ricky, way more power, and alot more tougher. yeah, I sure do believe Cotto will win. I say Cotto wears Pacman down in the 11th round, like he did to zab Judah. NOV.14, Miguel cotto WINS !

August 12, 2009 at 4:09 pm
(60) SR says:

I keep reading the same thing for both sides, Coto is to strong, to big, to powerful, blah blah blah. Pac Man is to fast, blah blah blah.

I’ll take the rankings of pound for pound into effect, I think people who study this know more then some idiot fans boys, I’m not a fan of cotto at all, I’m a fan of Pac Man, I think they both have good shots at winning, but even if Margarito did use plaster of paris on his tape, it does not change the fact that he still was able to exploit the weakness in Cotto’s defense.

PacMan will win because not only are his punches fast but the pack a punch. He will exploit Cotto’s weakness and knock him out in the 4th. Cotto has to drop weight so he might be slugish (to all the people saying that the golden boy was sluggish because he dropped weight.)

August 12, 2009 at 5:20 pm
(61) YT says:

Cotto will come out on top at the end of this fight. No 2 pounds lighter will do no harm to Cotto. All he has to do is work with Pacs speed, and connect several punches, and YES, Power and speed have alot to do with this fight. Cotto has the power and Pac has the speed. If you wanna say cotto will be sluggish in this fight, fine, just wait till Pac gets pop with a real hook, and Pac WILL get hit, fast or not. If Pac does win its towards the end, cuz cotto to strong and to good to fall early. Plus he always gets up, and finishes. Cotto wins in 9.

Im riden wit da puerto rican warrior. He is a great champ also, not just pacman. They both have beaten great champions, so this has to b a good match.

(65) J,matt says:

MANN! I like dis fight. Cotto VS Pacquiao. Both R great boxers. I like cotto, but it will be a battle for him. Yeah Cotto is strong, but can he last all 12 rounds against outrageous speed by Pacquiao? And can Pacquiao take steel power from Cotto? I see this fight going towards the score cards. But i even see Pacquiao wearing Cotto down in the later rounds like 10 or 11. But i also see Cotto dominating Pacquiao to the body with great power and putting Pacquiao down, in the mid rounds, like 7 or 8. This will be a good match, shouldnt be a disappointment, it should be excitement. But YES i like Miguel Cotto. All my faith R in his hands.

Manny will take lots of shots and hang on till the 5th or 6th round, then will start to wear down from Cotto’s power. Manny is a great boxer, and has beaten plenty of good fighters. But Cotto is much bigger n stronger then all, and will take over this fight.

i’m tired of people making excuses abt pac’s wins, especially against de la hoya & hatton, where they say that golden boy was washed up & drained, & hatton never beating a true champion before. those guys themselves did not see they had those handicaps, & knew they would win no matter what. anyway, why would you be in a fight where you see no chances of winning? i predict that after pacman wins this fight against cotto, people would be saying this & that again, like cotto is also too drained as far as making the weight, or that he was not the same fighter after he lost to margarito. these boxers are real men who don’t make excuses, they go out there & fight their hearts out, & i hope that people who call themselves fans will follow suit.

S*** i agree, Hatton aint never beaten a real champ! If so, PLZ TELL ME! WHO! He is a good boxer, but come on, he aint great. Oscar has always been a great boxer, he even beat lots of great boxers. But Oscar aint been da same since he lost to Felix Trinidad, and twice to Mosley. Oscar never was so good against da speed. Mosley, Trinidad, and Pretty boy all had speed, and Oscar had problems against it. Cotto wont have dat problem like most of you say. Cotto faced speed, power, weakness, and greatness all before, and is faceing it once again. Both fighters will have a difficult time in da ring come NOV.14. Cotto has to adapt to Pacmans speed and Pacman has to survive thru Cottos power. But this will b an exciting fight. My hope is for Cotto, and dat he come thru wit da win.

Oscar has always been a good fighter, but he has not been the same since his lost to Felix Trinidad, and twice to Mosley. And he always had problem against speed, like when faced against Mosley, Trinidad, and pritty boy. So he was washed up long time ago! Cotto is a tru champion, and will give every1 a shocking surprise in his bout wit Manny. Both guys R great warriors, and will have a difficult time in the ring with eachother. I like Cotto to win this fight, but it wont be so easy 4 him, Manny is quick, and Cotto is tough, so this will be an exciting fight. All my hope goes to Cotto on NOV.14

(76) diego aguada says:

Cotto will be the “victim of his own aggression”. Pac’s heavy left is tailor-made for Cotto when coming in. His 1-2 punch combi will do much of the damage because of his blinding speed. And with Manny’s lateral movements, as we’ve seen in the early 1st round in Hatton fight, it will frustrate Cotto to land a good punch on the greatest Asian boxer, and probably after Nov. 14, the greatest boxer in the world! Being the ONLY boxer to win 7 championship

They say Cotto’s strong, heavy-handed, etc… We’ve seen strong and heavy punchers who were demolished by Pac before, Remember Diaz? Hatton?

Speed is Pac’s big advantage against PR’s pride – but his speed coupled with power is even more devastating. I foresee a TKO 4 PAC because ref will stop fight due to cuts here and there sustained by Cotto. It’s gonna be bloody I believe.

August 22, 2009 at 1:21 pm
(77) Jay says:

there is no way Pac will KO Cotto in the early round. Pacmans punches will not faze Cotto in the early going. Pacman will have to connect all thru this fight. Cotto not only strong, but solid. Cotto can stand thru speed and heavy punches, and he has proven it. Pac is a good boxer, but will have trouble in this bout. Sum say Hatton had power, BOY aint no where near power. Great punches, but weak landing. Pac has a great left hand, but Cotto has the better left hook. Cotto can survive with cuts if necessary, and can finish. This will b a good match, and it will go pass 4. But ya, i like Cotto in this bout.

August 22, 2009 at 1:34 pm
(78) CASH IS KING says:

I agree, Hatton aint never beaten a tru champion! If so, WHO? He is a good boxer, just not so great. Oscar has always been a great fighter and has proven 2 b 1 of the best 2 ever play da game. Sum say he was washed up, But he has been dat way 4 along time now. He has never been da same since his lost 2 Felix Trinidad and twice 2 Mosley. Come this NOV.14, Pacman will have a tru fight and 1 dat he has been waiten on. My hope is on Cotto 4 NOV.14. I truely believe he can out punch Pacman. He wont have da speed like Pac, but he will have da power, chin, talent, and hands 2 come out on top. But this will b a great match, it should b an exciting fight. All my faith is in Cotto.

(79) KO KING says:

If pacman had faced Clottey, who would win? If Cotto faced Hatton, who would win? If Pacman faced Margarito, who would win? and if Cotto faced De La Hoya, who woul win? I believe Cotto would had beat them also in his own game. Maybe not like Pac did, but a victory would had been awarded to Cotto. And for Pacman, i truely doubt he would of dominated eihter fighter. Both Clottey and Margarito would have gave Pacman hell. Maybe Clottey would have been the easier prey for Pacman, but not Margarito. This is just my thought,not only cuz i prefer Cotto to win but cuz to see if people who like Pacman so much, will figure out that this fight aint gonna be so easy for the pound 4 pound champion. This will be a great bout between these good fighters. May the best man WIN!

August 25, 2009 at 3:05 pm
(80) Dollar says:

This will be a great match between these 2 warriors. Pacman is a great fighter and so is Cotto. Pacman is known for speed and combinations, And Cotto is known for his speed, left hook, and his tough chin. Both fighters will have lots of fans to back them up in this NOV.14 fight. And both guys are great with standing,ovation. I hear Pac will KO Cotto in the early rounds. That will not be so easy for Pacman, he will have to work with Cotto, and learn his way. Cotto will have to do the same, but against speed. This will be a nice fight.

I like Miguel Cotto, I like a TKO in the 7th. I been watching Miguel for quit sum time now, and he has face all kinds of different talents. He also face plenty of champions himself. Pacman will be a tough challenge for Miguel, but Cotto will over come Pacquaio speed, and style, to prove that Pac aint so great after all. Cotto, the real deal of boxing.

August 26, 2009 at 12:28 pm
(82) willie r. says:

For me Pacman will win in 5 to 6 rounds, TKO…
It’s bec. the speed and the style has a big diffirence in this fight. Pacquiao loves to fight an oppensive fighter but have difficulties in a courterpouncher opponent like Marquez…So that’s why I will give 55-45 when Pacquiao vs Mayweather happens, in favor of Mayweather.

August 27, 2009 at 12:18 am
(83) Lei says:

I predict a KO in the 11th round by Miguel Cotto. I understand Pacman is very quick, and is in his prime right now. But Miguel is a true warrior, and is a skillful boxer. He has fought with the best and has survived through cuts, and heavy punches. Cotto will have a tough time against Pacquiao. He will have to fight around the ring, jabing with connection. Cotto must pick n roll, cause Pacquiao is great in 1 position. Fast hands from Pacman will land, but will have to land hard every hit. Cotto is solid and can stand through 12 full rounds. Cotto has power and target to connect and do damage. I see this fight going out like CottoVSJudah of 06. Cotto will hurt Pacman, and will lay him down shocked.

This is the kind of fight boxing fans really wants to see. Only The best against the best. Kudos to the real champ who will win this fight! And F*** Money Gayweather! As they say, speed kills, my vote goes to the Pacman. TKO in 5th-6th round.

(86) skills says:

I believe Cotto can win this fight, he is a great, and skillful boxer. He has the power and the courage to come out on top. Cotto will have to work around Pac and keep up wit his speed,cuz yes, speed duz kill, but only da weak fall quick. And Cotto sure aint that easy 2 put down, specially in sum early round people predict. Pac is very fast and has put his opponents down quick. Cotto is 2 solid and strong 4 an early tko. Pacman will have 2 land harder punches then he’s ever thrown, cuz he’s finally facing a tru warrior like himself and at 145. And this will not b a Hatton or De La Hoya match. Cotto yung, smart, quick, and powerful. On a real note, Miguel Cotto takes this fight 2 da 8th round, and slows down Pacman by dominating him 2 da body and punishing him wit dangrous hooks, and lays him down 4 a nap. Lol! COTTO BABY!!

a gigantic monument for manny must be build to honor him as a great p4p fighter who ever lived should he win over another spectacular boxer miguel cotto.to do so,he shld hav started his routine even if he could easily get the catch weight limit but its the reverse.miguel so focused and manny at ease.who ever comes out victorious,depends on its performance long before fightnight and hunger to win.

manny will be on his knees in later rounds aginst a well focused aggresive miguel on figth night having a shorter period on his routine with his trainer freddie roach.victory on this mega fight depends on good,hard and long preparation for we know that both are spectacular fighters.i pick cotto to win

(89) Nathan says:

Everybody is Betting On manny but remember always the underdog is the one to rise to the ocasion they said the same thing when cotto vs judah and when cotto vs mosley what happen after the fight he prove a lot they said taht mosley and judah were to fast for him a look the y both lost and one got KO and also manny will never ko cotto if you look back margarito iven with things in his glove couldent ko cotto, they stop the fight cause of the blood and clotley couldent ko cotto nighter , and the list goes on and they are true welther weight so im my opinion manny ego is getting to hi in this fight and look marquez f*** him up in the fights they had before so belive me his speed will be stop when cotto works on his body then the KO he will not be able to handel the power from cotto. you got to study boxing and see the real fact you could have all the speed in the worl but when it come to the end it could be cut out and then downs got manny pacquiao.

I hope Cotto wins. I believe he can KO Manny in mid rounds. YEAH, YEAH, Manny is quick, so wut! Every1 that Manny has fought was able 2 land plenty of shots. He might b da p4p champ, but he does have 3 loses on his record, so thats enough proof 4 Cotto 2 try and win this fight. Cotto had 1 great fight in his last 2 bouts, and Manny dominated his last 2 opponents. Cotto will have a tough time, but he will hurt Manny. Manny has been hit by strong boxers, but Cotto truely has more power then he’s ever felt. on NOV.14 I see Cotto smashen pacman in da 9th round. Cotto left hook will do sum damgage.

September 1, 2009 at 1:06 am
(91) dean says:

Whoever says Manny will finally feel a real welterweight punch from Cotto are assuming Cotto will be able to land a flush punch. Not many have done that except Morales. Manny learned from that fight and stopped getting hit.

Manny will win at least by decision and maybe by TKO with that left hand of his putting Cotto on the deck several times. I say it is Cotto who better avoid being hit.

September 1, 2009 at 1:23 am
(92) I SED DAT says:

You cant compare Morales 2 Cotto. They R far in weight from eachother. And YES, Pacman will feel a real punch in this fight. Cotto has great power, just cuz he’s not as fast, dont mean he cant put out Manny. Speed kills, but so duz power, specially if u aint nver felt a tru punch. Pacman has moved up pound after pound, and now he is in a higher weight vs a tru warrior. Ans how sum gonna say Cotto cant land! That man crazy!! Cotto has great connection, and great landing and he will connect against pacman, all boxers get hit! Its da sport. I say Cotto shocks all Lil Pacmans fans wit a KO in da 10th. Cotto much heavier, even when fighen at da same weight, Cotto has fought in this weight much longer then pacman, so you no he will land harder!

(94) Krys lee 45 says:

Aww hell! Cotto who? Get off da gas! Pac is a good fighter but he aint so hott. He in his prime right now, but dats coming 2 a end. If Pacman duz beat Cotto, then u can say he is da best. Cotto WILL b a tough challenge 4 Pacman. Cotto is 1 of da best in da sport n Pacman knows it. Pacman chose 2 box Cotto, not cuz he thnx it n e z victory, but b cuz he knows he he pulls out da win, then he has proven himself 2 b da best. De La Hoya was jst proof dat Pacman can stand against bigger boxers, n Hatton was jst sorry n e z target. But Cotto is a real boxer n a tru warrrior. So Pacman will have trouble wit da skilled Miguel Cotto. Only time will tell in da ring NOV.14 who will actually win dis bout. Honestly my pick is 4 da bigger n stronger, Miguel Cotto. But he will be tested once again, but prove 2 come out on top ovr Pacquiao, 4 tha victory.

Im wit Cotto, he should dominate Pacman, and crush him. Pacmans fast, but Cottos D will help slow down Pacs speed and make eazy target 4 cotto 2 land all around the ring. Cotto will have 2 chase Pacman. Once Cotto pops pacman wit a flesh punch, he will b hurt.

(102) Da Dream says:

Pacman will be a dangrous fighter for Miguel Cotto. Pac has all the speed, foot work, and shots to avoid a lost. But you can never doubt Miguel. He is a true warrior, and a great puncher, from body to hooks. Both have face great opponents, and will square off on NOV.14 and will both have a difficult time in the ring. Speed and power will be shown through out this fight. This will be a great match. But i gotta go with Cotto. He is a underdog, and most pridect him to be KO. I truely doubt that. Cotto is a solid boxer, a very strong. He will give Pacman a great fight. !!Cotto all the way!!

September 7, 2009 at 2:48 pm
(103) southside says:

YEAH RITE! Cotto sure wont b out dis fite b4 Oscar Did. Cotto much stronger, and much smarter. Cotto is a great fighter like Pacman, if not better! Pac is just fast, dats all he has on Cotto. But all Lil pacman fans will c A real deal 4 Pacman. Cotto WLL WIN!.

September 7, 2009 at 2:55 pm

Miguel Cotto will hurt Pacquiao wit a counter punch 2 da body and backed up by a powerfull left hook. Cotto KO Manny 9-10.

(107) J.CHARACO says:

I think cotto does not how to react to relentless pressure. He is Mike tyson when been hit, he loses his balance and composure. Paquiao quicker hand speed and explosive combinations
will be too much for cotto.

(108) Fight fan says:

Well these R 2 great warriors 4rm 2 different islands, and who love 2 fight 4 thr country. Both guys R very skilled in the sport they love. Manny is fav 2 win and is also da p4p champ, at dis point. And is ready 4 a great challenge. Miguel Cotto is also great and is taken dis fight vry serious! Cotto is on a come back mode right now, n knows he has 2 be prepared 4 da quick n skillfull Pacquiao. Cotto will come in dis fight looking 4 a win. Both warriors will have sum trouble here n there, wit da speed n power dat will b targeted in dis match. I will b watchn, so let da best man win.

September 8, 2009 at 1:26 pm
(109) B says:

I agree that Cotto does react differently 2 a counter punch. But you have to see that Pacman does not have the same power like the opponents Cotto has faced. So this will b something new 4 Pac, and he knows it. Thats Y he needs his training longer then 5 hrs. I hope Cotto does win, since that every1 is going 4 pacman.

September 8, 2009 at 9:14 pm
(110) gin says:

i think Pacman will win this fight bec.of his ability to throw punches,speed,and most of all the very humble guy that makes his country proud.Pacman will knock him down by at least 5 rounds.Ha…ha… ha…

September 9, 2009 at 12:52 am
(111) Left hook says:

Pac will not KO Cotto b4 5, if he does have dat chance, dat will b later down da stretch. Cotto is much heavier n much stronger. Pac will jump in n jump out, n win he jumps in Cotto will counter him wit a hook and will hurt him. Pacman has never felt a tru punch 4rm a bigger n smoother fighter. Cotto knows he is facen a champ, so he will b prepare 2 die in da ring. Cotto is going 2 hurt Pacman in da body. Pacs body is not solid enough 4 da powerfull Miguel Cotto! All have sed Cotto will go down in 5, sorry fellas, Pac goes down in 6…HA…HA!

September 9, 2009 at 5:46 pm
(112) EC says:

Well, this is gonna be a really good fight. Both man are great warriors, and are both great with punches. Im one of the few that is not sure who is actually gonna win this fight. Manny is very fast, and has outstanding combinations. He can out punch fighters, and take lots of hits. Miguel is also very strong, and very smart. You can never count out Miguel, no matter who he fight. Lots of people have judged Miguel from his last 3 fights.
(”Miguel aint the same, ”Miguel has struggled, ”and Miguel has not improved himself since falling to Margarito…) Cotto did have trouble against Clottey, and did fall to Margarito. BUT… Clottey was powerfull, and heavy, Pacman has not face any1 dat big. Margarito was also good, but Cotto will take that lost like a warrior. You win some, and you lose some. I believe the real Miguel Cotto will be back in the ring NOV.14 and Pacman will have to fight his heart out. Pacman will look sharp in the early rounds, but Cotto will give him a hard time to finish what he is doing. Cotto will land lots of punches, and most will hurt Manny. I can see Manny winning, but also the same for Cotto. If Manny dont handle up right, Cotto probably will make him crumble.

September 10, 2009 at 11:49 pm
(113) Noypi says:

If cotto is a legitimate welterweight and pacquiao a pound-for-pound tested, then a pound-4-pound will definitely win over the welterweight.

Let’s be objective here: cotto has a welterweight punch that could knock opponents out at his level or lower; but pacman’s knockout power has been tested to beat more than his weight class, i.e. DLH.
And even from flyweight to welterweight, we never see pacman get hurt with ANYBODY, really. why? it’s the speed.

September 11, 2009 at 1:02 am
(114) K.RO says:

Dats da deal, pacman has never been hurt but dis fite willl hurt him. Cotto very strong n powerful. Pac will b hurt in sum rounds. Pls Marquez, Diaz, n Morales have all tested n hurted Manny. But Manny was da winner in all. But Cotto much bigger n stronger, so alot different in lots of ways. Oscar was just proof of Manny beaten bigger fighters, but not proof of beaten better fighters like Miguel. NOV.14, Manny will have 2 fight his heart out!

September 12, 2009 at 10:13 am
(115) ManRay deLeonard says:

Cotto will severely test the chin, gut, brain and heart of the Pacman. The warrior king Cotto’s power and unrelenting punches may be too much too handle for the P4P lightweight in the end but all those Pacman detractors out there who think of Pacquiao as a little man who only has speed, counterpunches, the Roach and not much else are in for a real ass squirming. The Pacman not only has a huge heart and solid chin – he has showstopping power. The Pacquiao of 2009 is much better, stronger and wiser than the Pacquiao of 2008 or 2007. If Cotto cannot catch or wobble the Pacman with several good punches by the 8th round the fight will favor Sugar Cane Pacquiao. Fleet footed Manny might just knock Miguel all the way back to San Juan.

September 12, 2009 at 12:35 pm
(116) Cutman says:

I am 1 of dem guys dat thnks Pacman only has speed against Cotto. Dont get me wrong, Pacman is a great boxer, and has great skills, But he is gonna finally be tested since fighten Marquez. Cotto is bigger, stronger, and heavier, even at da same weight. Plus, Cotto might not have da speed like Pac, but he duz have quick punch, and solid punches at dat. Also, Cotto himself has a big heart, but will not win dis fight. It all comes 4rm da mind, stregnth, and hands, so come on, dis aint easy 4 Pacman! Like sum1 sed, Pac has proven 2 beat bigger boxers like Cotto, but not better boxers like Cotto. But ya, lil man will get hurt in dis 1. hahaha!

September 13, 2009 at 8:55 pm
(117) Noypi says:

…but against the odds that pac will outspeed cotto because of skills, the caveat is that body punchers even, UNKNOWN, has knocked out pacman, i.e. Torrecampo, and Singsurat. cotto might be less faster, but a body punch from a legitimate welterweight will shock pacman all the way.
If cotto will focus on the body rather than earning points, he’ll probably KO pacman. If pacman is too careless for that, then his speed will go nowhere.

September 14, 2009 at 12:59 am
(118) kid12 says:

pacquiao will ko cotto 3rd round..
once a master said.. there are only two types of fighter.. the quick and the dead.. and I think you all know who the quick one is.

September 15, 2009 at 6:16 am
(119) Choy says:

Come on guys! If Pacman can knock out hatton he can definitely kill Cotto. Be realistic, Cotto’s last fight was almost a lost. And Pacman demolished all his opponent who are usually on higher rankings. Cotto can say good bye to his belt now cause after this it won’t be his no more. Remember that Pacman is an offensive player, and Cotto’s defense is ridiculous from his last fights info. Right now, I’ll judge them from their last fights coz it’s all we have.

September 15, 2009 at 7:58 am

I think Cotto will be on a deep sleep on the 3rd or 4th round. lol!

(121) Krys lee says:

All who go 4 pac and say he will win in 2-4 rnds. Sure dont no boxing! Cotto isnt quick as pac but has enough speed 2 dominate, but Cotto power will b da key 2 dis bout. Cotto is very skillfull also, and has beat great boxers. Ya pac beat Hatton, but dat man aint nowhr near Cotto, Cotto would also drop dat fool! pac has proven 2 win big fights, but has yet 2 take on a tru warrior since matchen up wit Morales, and Marquez. Cotto is da man 2 fight and 2 beat, if Manny really wants 2 b called da best P4P boxer. Speed is great 4rm pacman, but will his power n strength b enough 4 da bigger, n stronger Miguel Cotto? My beliefs, Cotto will trade shots wit pac, but also will hurt pacman, and have him n all his fans, stunned, whn Cotto is announce da winner, ovr thr p4p champ.

September 16, 2009 at 9:00 am
(122) TruePuertoRicanGuy says:

I’m a puerto rican guy so i want Cotto to win but.. That little man we are talking about is too good. Cotto have an advatage in skills, technique and i’ve heard that he is already training hard in the past 5 weeks and pacman just recently started training.. but still our Cotto is not the same after the beating he got from margarito so i honsetly say if im from another country im rooting for pacquiao because he’s punches are stronger, he has a faster footwork and punches.. Even tough Cotto is a counter puncher if he does not return to his old style of hardcore fighting he will definitely get the beating Hatton recieved… Frankly speaking Hatton deserved it and all of his english fans… together with bigmouth Mayweather Sr… Hope to see his son goes to his knees in Marquez fight.. I honestly wanna see Pacquiao vs Marquez and Cotto Vs Mayweather.. Any winner of that fight will make me happy except for friggin Mayweather.. i wanna see that overrated S.O.B down bad..

September 16, 2009 at 9:53 pm
(123) glenn says:

boxing is a team effort, not just the boxer, so whatever happened to delahoya(drained) that was their fault.. that’s why there is a trainer, conditioning coach, cutman, etc.

September 16, 2009 at 9:57 pm
(124) Noypi says:

bottom line: the heart is the key to this fight, no matter how stronger or faster your opponent is than you are, it’s a matter of choice whether you stil have the heart to fight. Case in point: Pacquiao-Morales I fight. It could have been TKO for pacman had he chose to give the win to Morales if not because of courage. Same goes with Pacman-Cotto fight. I hope pac will not get too confident just because he is the better guy technicaly speaking. Pac should treat this fight his LAST fight, just like how micheal jordan treat his.

September 16, 2009 at 11:18 pm
(125) Twin says:

Mann! People talk like pac is da best fighter who ever lived! Dat lil dude is a great fighter, n has challenged n beaten great fighters as well. Cotto will b a raw fighter dis coming NOV. Cotto has always been a great boxer, n has also beaten great boxers. I know dis pacman is awesome, but Cotto will come in dis fight n brawl wit da champ. Cotto aint weak, n aint stupid. He also has a big heart 2 win dis fight, but dat wont b da outcome 4 dis match, it will b da strength, hands, n power 2 take da victory. If Cottolooks sluggish in dis bout he will lose, n da same 4 pacman, if he hurt Cotto wit his puches he will have a long night and will fall.

(127) Dtrane says:

Glenn, didn’t Roach train De La Hoya for the Mayweather fight? Pacman definitely has the speed advantage…… especially since he would only take the fight if Cotto dropped to 145. Sounds like he’s already trying to get things in his favor befor the bell rings! Cotto knows he has a lot to prove after his last fight. He’ll slowly gain his confidence and put the heat on Manny by the middle rounds. Cotto by the 7th!

September 17, 2009 at 11:47 pm
(128) glenn says:

dtrane, pro delahoya were saying that he was beaten by pacquiao coz delahoya was drained slow and old.. all the excuses. dela hoya was trained by nacho berenstein when he fought pacman, sparring partner was shane mosley and also they brought in the trainer of muhammad ali. so dont you guys say that dela hoya didnt prepare hard for this fight.. he looked old and slow coz pac was too much for him.

September 17, 2009 at 11:52 pm

d trane, i thought when freddie roach trained delahoya for the mayweather fight, dela hoya looked strong and fast..

September 18, 2009 at 12:04 am
(130) J,matt says:

Cotto will do fine in this fight. He will hurt Manny to the body. Manny has been hit hard, but not as hard as Cotto will hit him. Manny is quick, but Cotto will be focused and will look good against the speed. Cotto has beat plenty fighters with speed, such as, Moseley, Quintana, Judah, and Paulie M. So Cotto will do fine. Combinations from Manny will be the main key 4 Cotto. He will have to use his heart n mind, and he will land, and he will throw 3-4 punches including his great left hook that he WILL land when Manny drops his right like in all his fights when throwen his left punch. Miguel Cotto will KO Manny Pacquiao! And every1 will be shocked and proven wrong! HAHAH!

September 18, 2009 at 10:14 am
(131) Left hook says:

Miguel Cotto, ALL NIGHT LONG! Cotto will work smoothly, and connect on every punch he throws, he will hurt Manny wit several punches, and have him stunned. Pacman will throw sum speedy punches and land as well, but da great PR warrior will b prepared, speed, combinations, footwork, wutevr, Cotto will b aseume! Dis will b like Moseley dominating Margarito. Cotto very confident and very smart. Da night of NOV power will b da key 2 victory, and Miguel sure has da power n strength 2 turn da table around on Pacman.

September 18, 2009 at 10:23 am
(132) JC says:

YES SIRR! My man Cotto drops Manny Pacman Pacquiao!! Da real Miguel Cotto will be back in da ring, and prepared 4 a showdown n a world classic upset!

(133) hoy says:

This is same crap I’ve heard from previous Pacquiao’s fight. They same crap that Hatton is stronger than Pacquiao. They same crap that Dela Hoya vs Pacquiao a mismatched. When De la Hoya lost the fight you guys keep on saying De la Hoya was drained. Remember De la Hoya has 2 best trainer in the world on his side. He was in good shape. When Hatton lost the fight. You guys keep on saying Hatton was overated. Remember Hatton was a champion. He’s only lost was the Mayweather fight which he went up to welterweight. He fought Pacquiao on his natural junior welterweight. What excuses again you will have if Pacquiao win the fight? Because they fought on catch weight not on the natural weight of Cotto which is welterweight? Cotto fought Clottey at 146 lbs on their weight night. Look on their previous fight and you’ll know who has an advantage on this fight. I think Pacquiao will win. Cotto chancecs if he hit a lucky punch on Pacquiao. For sure Pacquiao will be sleeping that night.

pacquiao will either win or lose by tko. both are furious fighters and each has an advantage over the other. pacquiaos got speed(agility) and cotto has the power(strength). its hard to predict who will win on their fight, either of them might hit a lucky punch over the other and for sure it’s gona be deadly.
both respectful fighters.. hope mayweather lose!

every body think this is going to be a easy fight for pac-man.he is a great fighter like cotto both are great.now lets compare,cotto he is strong and pacquiao never fought a strong fighter like cotto.cotto fought a speedy guy before like mosley.cotto hes more counter punch than pac man hes more defense than pac man for me cotto win by k.o in round 10 you see

pacquiao will win, just take a look at cotto after he fought with clottery, clottery brutality beat him, and clottery aint no one. Now imagine now getting in the ring with pacquiao??manny pacquiao aint loosing n e time soon, n u can mark my words.

(139) mike says:

Both Morales & Marquez came close to knocking Pacquiao down with one shot. Pacquiao has been knocked out twice in his career & has yet to take a solid shot at a higher weight. If Cotto can tattoo him a couple of times early, I wonder how he’ll react.

September 21, 2009 at 12:10 am
(140) Dove says:

Cotto will stop Pacman and lay him down hurt! Yeah Cotto struggled in his last fight, but Clottey was strong, heavy, and had lots of power, plus his defence was great! Imagine Pacman against Clottey, who will win? My opinion, Pacman, but will have trouble with the power, and defence. I just wanna say Cotto will land and will hurt Pacman. Cotto is a great boxer and will surprise every1!

September 21, 2009 at 12:38 am
(141) JBEST says:

YO! LITO! Why cant you just accept that this lil asian’s gunna whoop your puerto rican ass huh? Cotto has never, I repeat, NEVER faced anyone like manny. He gonna drop in 6th round. And be finished off in the 8th rond. Mark my words!

I’ll mark dem weak ass words! Cotto has fought plenty of good boxers wit greater talent thn da asian! Ya pac is good, but all dis lil fool gots is speed ovr Cotto! Once he steps n da ring wit da bigger n stronger Miguel Cotto, he will no dat dis aint gonna b a e z fight. U can never compare their fights 4 1 another. Dey never been n da same weight class. Cotto has always fought heavier, n Pac has fought lighter. Dis will b a good bout, and it will b a surprise 4 who ever wins. I bet Cotto will crash dis lil asain dude every1 so call luvz since 05! But u never no how da fighter mite feel come fight nite. If Pacman can hurt Cotto badly, he will have a big chance of winning. If not, he will b n 4 a long nite.

I bet Cotto will crush dis lil asian dude. Cotto has fought great fighters, plus heavier n stronger guys at dat. You cant compare these 2 boxers 4rm eachother, dey have never been n da same weight class. Cotto has always fought heavy, n Pac has always fought lighter. Dis will b a great bout n will surprise every1 at da end. If Pac wants 2 take dis win he must hurt Cotto, if not, he will b n 4 a long night. Ya cotto has never fought any1 like Pacman, but da same 4 Pacman, he has never fought any1 like Cotto. Pac has fought big boxers like De La Hoya, but not a big boxer like Miguel. My favor n 4 Miguel Cotto, TKO 10 rnds max!

(145) cottosan says:

Pac-man’s speed is packed with power and a lot of punches.. compared to zab and mosley, fast guys but not as busy as the pacman. moreover excellent head and body movements and footworks. Cotto is much stronger, bigger and durable than Marquez, he has a strong determination. Intelligence is the key to win on this fight. whoever is wise enough to avoid punches and throw accurate power shots.

(149) Floyd Mayweather says:

My idol Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao will win this one, surely, lucky for cotto if pacman wins by unanimous decision.

next fight for manny will be me, Floyd Mayweather, I can’t wait to eat manny’s punches..

I will still cheat when we’ll meet, so that I’ll have a slight advantage,

just what I did to marquez, not following the limit weight. the 600K fine for me’s just my spare pocket money.. somehow, even with all the advantage by my side, and CHEATING, I still won, only by unanimous decision.. with all the advantage for me,

I simply can’t put marquez down, I only got lucky just once in round 2. Unlike Manny, he put marquez down 3x in round 1. I am still dreaming of doing that!

well, I know manny will feed my mouth with his punches, however, I will still CHEAT my weight to increase my chances of decreasing manny’s punches at my mouth.

Go manny Go!!

(151) T says:

My opinion is that Miguel Cotto wins this fight by KO. He has all the right skills for this fight. Hae has great power and great connections with his punches. He might not be as fast as Pacman, but he has enough speed to counter great punches, and land several shots all through the fight. Cotto is much bigger, n much stronger even while fighten at the same weight. Cotto has struggled in the last few bouts of his career, but does not bother him. All boxers have their down fall in their career, just like Manny’s 3 loses in his record. But Miguel Cotto we all have seen dominate b4, will be back in da ring on NOV, and will work his way to victory in this fight. Pac will be tough, but Cotto will overcome the p4p champ, and hurt him all around. My choice, MIGUEL COTTO!!

September 23, 2009 at 7:34 am
(152) Rick says:

The people who think that pacquiao is going to knock out cotto are retards. Manny may win but only in a 12 round decision. It is very hard to knock Cotto because of his natural big welterweight body.

(157) Ed says:

I honestly don’t know who will win and I want to see the fight. Cotto is a tough, strong, honest and skilled fighter.

Pacquiao has become a better, smarter and stronger fighter in the past 2 years. He is not too smart to listen to his trainer.

Cotto at his peak should handle Pacquiao but I think he has fought in so many tough fights that he may be over the hill now. Judah, Moseley, Margarito and Clottey were all struggles. Margarito took much out of Cotto.

Pacquiao fought the best in Marquez who lost to a gutless Mayweather. Mayweather fought a safety first fight. He preferred to pay $600,000 rather than make the contract weight, saving himself from having to expend energy in the latter part of the fight and possibly look bad.

Perhaps Pacquiao in a close decision.

This could be considered as fight of the year and whoever wins this fight will be the one who will shut up mayweather’s dirty mouth.

(159) Filthy says:

I like Cotto. I hope he dominates in this fight. I actually believe he will win. It will be very tough. I dont believe Cotto will fall or get hurt badly by Pacman. Cotto is very strong and solid. He is a warrior just like Pacman. Yeah he struggled in his last fight, but the last fight will not effect him in this NOV match. Cotto knows he has to come out prepared and focus for the p4p champ. Cotto will look sharp in this fight, and will shock every Pacman fans and betters. In my eyes, i see Cotto landing harder, and bigger shots all through the fight. If not a KO by Miguel, then a throw in towl by Roach! {{ Dont Hate, Preticipate. 4 Miguel Cotto Da Great!!}}

(162) alzubaidi says:

i think that the best promotion for this fight is (the ko match ) becouse both are real street fighters and both are kos
but i think that cotto will be the one in this match becouse paquiao never fought one in the same level like cotto who can beat hard
morales barrera or even marquez are not ko fighters plus they cant beat hard like cotto , so i think that cotto will win this fight in 7/or/8 round by ko

In 2 min.+ in 9 round. cotto k.o by pacman..

(164) kid12 says:

at first my prediction is pacman by ko 3rd round. but as i watch previous cotto fights especially the one with clottey.. dang this guy never say die. plus he is a moving target, i know pac has speed but this cotto guy, he nullifies speed. his a real warrior, well also is pac. I like pac to win this thang but i’ve been hearing news that he just got into training 2 weeks ago while cotto is really taking this seriously have already trained for 5 weeks berfore pac. plus he has too many distractions like politics and showbiz.. he really needs to put his heart in this or his going to have a rough night.. predictions? still pac by decision. might even be a split. but one things for sure either of these guys will shut that gayweather’s mouth. how can he be p4p? his match wit marquez is not even impressive all he did was run around the ring.. yes that’s smart fighing but his opponent is small he could have went toe to toe with him and knock jmm out but he didn’t. he is not a finisher.. plus his dodging high caliber fighters.. yet he talks to much trash..

September 30, 2009 at 10:21 pm

i will win the game.. i need more money for the upcoming election…. i will win against cotto and against mayweather and will win the congressional seat at Saranggani province, where i can help my fellow Filipinos more.

yes cotto is a strong body puncher, but manny never just stand on it do you agree, cotto will sleep in the canvas and have a sweet dreams. he is so slow b4 he punch in the body manny will give him a hundred punches on his face am i right?

(167) albert says:

Speed + strength + accuracy + stamina that’s Pacman now. He discovered a secret natural and legal performance enhancer. Cant you see it in his fight? No way Cotto will win not even Floyd Jr. Both will lose by K.O. Watch them sooooon!

October 3, 2009 at 12:17 am
(168) Residual says:

Some of you know what you’re talking about. Cotto, as seen from his brutal war with Mosley and Margarto, is no pushover and can obviously take a hit, so why do some think Cotto will get put down early? Pac is strong but he’s still gonna be smaller than Cotto on fight night. Pac is faster but I don’t think Cotto will have a problem with that.

The big issue is the weight and the power or loss of it that goes with it. Cotto may hydrate to 150+ and be 10 lbs heavier than Pac. This is definitely going to be a war. It won’t be boring like Floyd.

October 3, 2009 at 10:45 am
(169) krys lee says:

Say Residual, dats real talk! Cotto will not b eazy prey 4 Manny, n dat man knows it. If Manny had mathed up n beaten da same contenders Cotto has faced, then u can compare these 2 boxers, but u cant. Only thing is dey r both great warriors, n r willing 2 win every match. But Cotto still da bigger man, stronger, smarter, n great power 2 punish pacman. Cotto is da real deal. U all shall c.

Cotto – butcher knife

(176) Paul A. says:

Speed will determine the fight between pacman and cotto. It will eventually last until 6 rounds and pacman will surely win the fight. He can control every round once he gained his confidence and once he knew the cotto’s style. Though cotto can hit pacman as many times as he can but still pacman can throw punches more than cotto can give yet more powerful and faster and he won’t be able to see it coming.

October 5, 2009 at 3:08 am
(177) Doug says:

I disagree with a Pacquiao v Mayweather bout being the fight boxing needs to see. Because of Manny’s brilliance, we have forgotten that size really does count in boxing. If Mayweather won, it wouldnt prove he is the better pound for pound boxer, because Mayweather would have weight, height and reach advantage. Cotto, Floyd and Moseley should be fighting each other. Unfortunately for Manny, there is no-one good enough in his proper class to fight, so he has been brave to take the risk and fight bigger guys. As for Manny vs Cotto it will be interesting. Manny is fantastic but Cotto is a beast, perhaps the most powerful welterweight out there. I think Manny will dominate the punching but Cotto will always have a chance to land a knockout blow. And when he hits someone they stay hit. Anything can happen.

(180) jmb says:

I can’t decide who will win this fight since both fighters have great calibe. Pacman got speed and power and Cotto got great power. As we can see during pacman’s previous fights, specially dela hoya fight, most of the viewers thinks dela hoya will win and even not thinking he was drained but when pacman defeated dela hoya, most fans thinks dela hoya is dehydrated which surely not. He got two of the best coaches in the the world, he just couldn’t handle pacman’s speed.

What I am trying to say is that I hope after this fight no excuses will be made. Pacman was always under rated during his last 2 fights but when he won those fights, many says his opponents are not talented. For me the real thing is that it looks that way because they couldn’t handly pacman’s speed and not because they are not talented

October 5, 2009 at 12:40 pm
(181) Prince says:

Cotto wins n a 11th rnd KO. Just as da fite wit Zab judah, he will overcome pacmans speed, n b calm against his punches cuz r not as solid as his very own. Cotto will work around pac, and will stick n move. TRUST n MIGUEL, dis aint practice 4 Manny, dis is WAR! COTTO N 11!

October 5, 2009 at 10:35 pm
(182) Orly says:

Manny Pacquiao will silence all those who think Cotto can win this with another devastating knock out come fight night, like he’s done with Dela Hoya and Hatton. Then he’ll go on to demolish Floyd Mayweather Jr.

October 6, 2009 at 10:25 am
(183) Jorge says:

I dont know why people think that Pacman is going to push Cotto around…. Cotto is the bigger man more powerfull and faster(dont forget about Mosley)Dont even think that Pac man is faster that Mosley…. If Cotto have problems with Pacman is because he is lefty, and that uppercut will hit Cotto a lot, but at the end pacman dont have the power to stop Cotto. Cotto will make Pacman quit by the 9th round if not early.

October 6, 2009 at 3:32 pm
(184) DUBB says:

I agree wit prince. Cotto will take dis win back 2 Puerto Rico, and have all his fans very proud. dnt get me wrong, Manny is a lil monster, n can destroy bigger opponents. Such as Oscar, but Cotto is much yunger thn dat man, n much powerfull. Cotto has great jabs, and a tough chin. Manny will not win dis match by KO! His power is not enough 4 da bigger n stronger Miguel Cotto. He duz have da speed advantage, n foot work, but Cotto will hurt Manny whn he bounces in n out 4rm da front of Cotto. I say TKO 4 Cotto n da 12th. It will b a battle, so it should go da distance.

October 7, 2009 at 1:12 pm
(185) Justin says:

Cotto in 8! Cotto has the size, strength, and boxing ability to end Pacquio’s night in KO fashion. Pacquio has tons of speed, but as seen in previous fights, he is not that hard to hit…just ask Marquez, Morales, and Barrera. In fact there were several moments in both the Marquez / Pacquio fights where Marquez had wobbled him; Cotto possesses the power, and suprising speed to put him on the canvas when he catches him. People are saying that Cotto didn’t look good in his last few outings and that Pacquio has been brilliant in his last three. Look at the level of competition.
Cotto – Margarito…the cheat! There is a reason he is nicknamed “hands of stone”, because his hands are wrapped in stone. Jennings…everybody needs a good tune-up after suffering such a tough loss. Clottey is easily one of the top three welterweights in the world and would give andybody in the division all they can handle; it is tough to look good against a guy as big, strong, and fast as Clottey.

Pacquio – Hatton…wayyyyyy over-raed!. Despite his one sided match against Malignaggi, he has not fared well in the states (questionable wins over Callazo & Urango). David Diaz…who? Oscar DeLahoya…Freddie Roach said it best: “we would not have taken this fight five years ago”. He had one leg in the boxing grave.

Pacquio better find a way to protect his mid-section & practice some head movement or he is in for a short night.

October 8, 2009 at 1:05 am
(186) r0981 says:

Look Pac can and will handle Cotto punches because his body is so use to the pain. He always spar with bigger and harder puncher than him every time he fights. Did you guys see his training with arnis stick ??? this s**t kill nerves … so I say pac in 6….

(187) Hawaiian Man says:

To: #7 Joe……..Ditto on your analysis…I agree 100%…..I too have been watching boxing since childhood. Boxing was fading to MMA & UFC until Manny Pacquiao’s arrival. I have never seen a fighter of his style & character a southpaw to boot….Manny is, as Freddie Roach puts it “A Complete Fighter”. Most fighters are one-deminsional either he is a Boxer or Slugger & rarely both, Manny’s style is Speed & Power with both hands…Jabs, Straights, Hooks, Upper-cuts, Crosses & Balance. In early fights Manny was awkward & tripping over himself…today with Roaches help Manny’s balance is uncanny…even in retreat he plants his back foot for leverage and throws a power punch as his opponent steps in….a good example is Manny’s KO punch of Ricky Hatton…Speed Is Power & Ricky himself admitted he never saw the punch….Manny Pacquiao THE NEW WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD AND STILL THE BEST POUND-4-POUND KING….Manny by a 9th round TKO…….Aloha

Pacquiao by KO in 3 rounds or less… pacquiao’s speed and strategy in boxing were becoming astoundingly unbelievable since he defeated all great mexican boxers at their title, pacman is now the world’s greatest boxer, he is a very geniues in his field, evn cotto and mayweather together at the same time cannot defeat pacman.. he will eat all boxers who stands as his opponent… get ready COTTO! Pacman wl going to kick your ass…

This man Cotto is going 2 prove he is still da best welterweight, n one of da best boxers 2day. 2 many people on dat other stuff by saying Cotto is going down early. Boys aint seen boxing, only judging of last matches of each fighter has fought in. Miguel Cotto will overcome all odds of dis bout. Cash iz King, N Cotto is on da rout 2 win dat prize. Dat man will handle up, and damage on all sides of da ring.

(193) Castro says:

I 2 like Miguel Cotto, I have always been a big fan. I have watched many of his fights, n dey all have been great. Cotto has lots of power, n lots of strength. He has been hit, n hurt, so i do believe it could happen agn. He was stunned by Margarito (IF CALLED A FAIR FITE) Stunned by Clottey, pls many others. But he has always fought 2 d end, against, power, speed, n switch hand hitters. Dis man can hit, n he sure duz have a chin 4 da responce. Dis fite wit Pacman will b asume! Both guys r comin out 2 win. Both will have lots of back up by fans. Manny will have Roach, n Miguel will have a great cutman 2 keep him alive if manny decides 2 take advantage of his cut 4rm his last match wit Clottey. Dis bout is about size, strength, speed, n power. So u no dis fite is gna b exciteing! No early KO 4 Manny, n no mistakes by Cotto. My favor 4 Miguel. Brilliant counter puncher wit lots of power.

(195) kid12 says:

yo! hold on! hold on K9! just what do you exactly mean by bigger, stronger, & dominant! wtf man! have you been in a cave or something! have you seen the tale of the tape? cotto is like what? 1/2 to 1 inch taller than pacquiao. is that big enough for you! and even if cotto is taller let’s say 2 inches at most. look at the reach man. they’re the same at 67′! even if you’re bigger it don’t matter if you have no reach advantage. plus they’re both fighting at 145 lbs. same mass! its simple science! pacquiao has the upper hand though. because he’s faster that means more force! go back to school and study moron! so that answers your bigger and stronger part. as for the dominant part, let’s see how cotto will handle it if he gets cut by pac with he’s flurry of punches, cotto has more scar tissues in the face than pac so he’s more prone to swells and cut, the only question here is endurance and will. both of them have it..

(197) K9 says:

Say Kid! U only sound like sum punk fan of da pacman! Not no boxing expert. I do agree dat both men r fightin at da same weight n have da same reach. But yo boy Manny hasnt been hit by a better boxer. all u can cum wit iz speed. Cotto will do fine against da speed n will punch much harder thn Manny! Wit da same weight invovled, Cotto still da stronger man. If Pacman culd hang against Margarito power n Clottey pls mny more of Miguels battles, thn u can say he mite jst smash Cotto. But dis man is moving up 1 after another, n da further he goes up, da harder da boxer n puncher will cum. So cum on chump, get off dat BS! Yo man is going down, luv it or hate it kid…

October 14, 2009 at 12:56 pm
(198) Finley says:

Dis 4 dat lil kid! It dont matter whos been cut more, all dat shows is who has fought bigger n stronger contenders. Cotto has been hit n cut, and has survived dem all. Both guys will bral, n dey r both warriors. Da size r comin in at da same, but Manny will not have da bigger hand of power, dats 4 sure! All Manny’s great fights have been at a smaller weight, so u cant come wit sum nonscence. Cotto has also fought wit da best, not only dat, but bigger n stronger. Every1 dat has sed dat Pac will win has only agreed 2 his speed n footwork. Dat just aint enough kid! U will c!!

(199) elnine says:

COTTO by KO…that is if HE hits the fast PACMAN.
after the fight some analyst ( who dont box in the ring ) will say cotto is a SHOT boxer, because he was beaten by a smaller opponent.aside from PACMAN, who went up 3 WEIGHT divisions in less than a year & beaten all opponents ?
i SMILED everytime i read in some news comments saying PACMAN’s opponent is a SHOT boxer.
remember, COTTO TRAINED hard too for this fight…dont make any excuses by saying HE is a SHOT BOXER because.
granting for the sake of argument that COTTO is HARD HITTER ( so as HATTON who claims the king of 140 lbs ).where is he now ? retiring from a great loss from a smaller GREAT FIGHTER with a big heart, tremendous ( blinding )SPEED & POWER ( 1,2,3 punch combinations )
remember COTTO has difficulty in fighting with SOUTHPAWS…
PACMANs speed & POWER will tear down COTTO plus the FACT that…PACMAN as he goes up higher weight divisions, his SPEED & POWER increases too.
i go for PACMAN by KO not later than 10 rounds

October 15, 2009 at 9:48 am
(200) Edwin I. Rios says:

YO Cotto will do what marquez did in his first fight. and thats take mannys ability to control the fight. Cotto is stronger, bigger, and smarter. manny has not fought someone like this with the caliber of Cotto. when he fought hatton, hatton didnt do anything and didnt have a chance to. and Hoya looked old and just tossed his punches with no force. com’on and that makes manny great! nahh. Cotto is ready for manny and manny is ready for cotto but not ready for his punches and power. Cotto 8th. Ko manny go run a country.

October 15, 2009 at 12:00 pm
(201) YT says:

Cotto will b da 1 2 KO Manny. Cotto is a harder puncher wit much more power. Manny is great, n has fast hands. He duz have sum power, but he is not as strong as Cotto, only quicker. But Cotto has good D# 2 protect himself trhough out dis fight. Yes, Manny has beaten big names in da welterweight class, but 2 me he has yet 2 beat a great boxer of dat class. Oscar has alway been a good fighter, but he has failed 2 look great, since losing 2 Felix Trinidad, n twice 2 Mosley. He is a goood boxer, but his time has come, just like evry other fighter. OK, n dis man from UK, (HATTON) He aint so great!! Maybe n his Country, but not wit da best from da US. Plus, Manny was just 2 good 4 dat man. SO come NOV.14 Cotto will give Pacman da fight of his welterweight career, n another brawl in battle since his fights wit Marquez, Morrales, n Diaz. Maybe thr wont b a KO n dis match, both guys can take hit, a can fight 2 d end. But Manny is quick, n will give Cotto problems. BUT, Cotto is still da harder puncher, and will hurt Mannywit most punches. My suggestion 4 Manny, (Cover dat body)

October 16, 2009 at 12:12 pm
(202) Mike C says:

(206) noirnoticvibe says:

Cotto will KO Paquaio with body shots..yes Paq looked good against a severly dehydrated DeLaHoya…and against Ricky Hatton…who had his chin checked and damaged by Floyd Mayweather…proof of this was his comeback bout against Lazcano who was wobblin him allnight,,,but any way……Cotto has one loss albeit under dark suspicions, why? you know the Mexican plaster of paris puncher..who look extra ordinary taken that @$$ whoopin against Sugar Shane….Look Paq has great speed excellent laterally movement and great punching power…Cotto naturally bigger, stronger and an excellent boxer with unbelievable body work skills has survived bigger punchers from ZAB JUDAH to SHANE MOSLEY with his own aggression and here’s the key word of the day JAB…which he will keep Paquaio at bay with.then round 5 boom body shot Paquaio is outta there……

its going to be 4 pacman by tko. yeah i know cotto is a natural welterweight and heavy hitter fighter but pacman has a lot of improvement now, we saw how he dominate d last 3 great fighters by his lightning speed n good fighting techniques. and i think he is comportable now in his weight class. and i know he has a gun to catch a smart fighter like cotto…!

October 19, 2009 at 1:01 pm
(209) pacquiao's fan says:

Okay,we know how strong Cotto is…and some says he can take to sleep Pacquiao in just few punch! Stupid man, doesn’t anyone know how strong body Pacquiao has? Check out his videos on his training, as you will notice how he loves his playground which is the RING. And this is my other question. Do you think he can easily hit Pacquiao that hard? He’s crazy good in dodging, he can see where the punches go at…He’s the best boxing dodger I’d ever seen.

Study the table:

1. Cotto – Power, a little bit speed, smart(not a genius)

2. Pacquiao – SPEED(his number 1 of all) , POWER (pacquiao haters don’t see it), SMART ( some people think he’s just dumb as they are), STRATEGY ( well, we know he always trained well for his every opponents,they got every strategy for them), FOOTWORK (which help him to dodge every single punches and to stronger his punches as well), and the last of all is FAITH ( he has Faith in god which gives him more strength,power,speed, and that’s why we love him)

Cotto will out punch pacman 2 take this victory. It will b a fight, but Cotto power will damage Pacquiao. He can take a big hit, but he will not take it well when he gets poped in da body. Cotto will land punches no matter how fast Manny is. Im looking foward 2 seeing Cotto drop Pacman by a devastateing body punch. Or a great left hook 2 da head.

(213) kid12 says:

al ya’ll fools! can’t you come up with anything else other than cotto is a great body puncher, hurt pac in d body, devastating body shots, etc.. that’s bull man. btw K9, am not a punk fan of pac. its just the way i see it from my prespective. yo i respect cotto i’ve seen some of his fights, am rather impressed with his last how he stayed composed even with a bad cut. but you just have to admit that pac is better, he’s not the same as before against marquez, morales. he’s improved ever since, I’ve been a doubter of pac for years since his rise to fame. but everytime i end up eating ma words against him, yo I tell you this man is fo real. cotto’s body punches? what you think team pac don’t know about that? they would be prepared for that. manny is a moving target. good luck with cotto hitting him with power punches, before cotto can land his punch pac has already landed his counter, his reflex is just too quick. and that’s something that can’t be taught in weeks, its something innate to a person, like a rare gift as well as speed, like calzaghe he has it or rj jr. you tellin me all i can come up with is speed. thats true! speed not power will win this. what good is a power if you can’t even hit your target. cotto will be throwing punches in the air. as for pac, even if he don’t have the power of cotto, he’ll be hitting him. come fight night we’ll all see. again this is just an opinion of mine. I might be wrong.

(222) Noypi says:

a standing target with no offensive attack is perfectly the best model to be KOed by cotto. Zab,Mosely,and even margarito are these types of fighters–static. Pacman is obviously not a perfect match for cotto because he is not a standing target,with no offensive attack. Plus, the quality of footwork and quality of punches pacman throws is very unique. he can knock a heavy fighter with a single shot from the right, more so from the left.
As to the issue of body shots, pacman’s six pacs will speak for itself. it’s like aluminum-titanium body. in conrast to his skinny,malnourished, and stressed body during his flyweight years. he partly works in a construction site,and bakery while doing bosing. But now he’s a full-time and complete athlete. No excuses for those no-brainer critics that if pac’s gonna win this, they’ll most probably argue AGAIN that cotto is dehydrated, confused, or waht any other EXCUSES>

October 23, 2009 at 7:04 am
(223) Paolo montazeri says:

I believe cotto will win. pacman has a style that suites him. Cotto only struggles against fighters like Margarito who take the fight to him. but pac man is not bigger than cotto, and he certainly dosen’t have Margarito’s chin. He can’t stand there and trade, with Cotto. his best strategy is to hit and run. This suites Cotto since he enjoys chasing opponents around and cutting the ring. He likes to bully his opponents into submission. He is also a very smart fighter. I think he will work the body in the early rounds, and then move up to the head in the later rounds when pac has slowed down. I see a late stoppage from cotto.

October 23, 2009 at 10:34 am
(224) ELC says:

I agree wit paolo, Cotto is smart, and can work around Pacman. Cotto will be prepared 4 Pacmans speed, footwork, and combinations. Pacman is very dominant at dis point, but he could also b shutdown, n Cotto is da man 2 do it. Cotto mite b slow, but isnt weak or dum. dis will b a great fight, but my beliefs say Cotto will hurt Pacman wit speed or not, but wit power wit every punch. Just face it, no matter how fast dis Pac dude is, Cotto could destroy him.

I think pacquiao will win by TKO. no matter how hard you punch if you cant find your target its still worthless. pacman has the power and speed and he find his target accurately. he proved us that in his previous fights.

(230) antone says:

Cotto surely will land no matter how fast pacman is. Cotto has great target, and great power. Cotto will look sharper then most of you thnk. As Pacman jumps in and out, Cotto will hit him as he comes in, and will hurt him. This is Manny 1st tru welterweight fight so he must take it serious. I like Cotto in 11.

(233) Dizzy says:

well if the fight last 8 to 10 rounds how many times will Pac get hit by power shots from Cotto. Pac is very fast but he will get hit. Cotto maybe slow but he have a better gard than hatton. Cotto did take a bad beating but he didnt passout, he took a knee knowing something was wrong.

Pac have what it takes to beat any boxer. he is one of the best but there is always somebody who can beat the best eventhow the man is not. Pac will fight like a true fighter, and he will get hit. he is not going to run back, he is not a defensive fighter like mayweather. like he should be in this fight

i thankin Cotto will beat Pac but it has to be by a KO.

im still ify bout Pac because of Marquez. the same reason why Mayweather will beat Pac. Pac is a very good fighter nothing takin from him. i luv to watch Pac fights i am a fan of his but Cotto is not a chump!!

Mayw. is a better Player of the Sport than anybody. not pound for pound so whoever fight him has to beat him at his own game. out box him. it is what it is

(235) iota1962 says:

I believe pac will win. It will be like the hatton fight only longer. If you have seen cotto’s fight with torres, clotey, and corley you will notice that it was laways the left hand of the opponent that rocks or make cotto chicken dance. the difference in this fihgt is that if pac’s left land squares to cotto it will not be like torre’s or clotey’s or corley’s. it will better, hitting the spot better and stronger. cotto might not be able to get up after the 2nd or third time cotto land on the canvass.
cotto is a hard hitter, thus i would assume that pac’s camp know’s that when pac gets hit by cotto it will not be the same getting hit by pac’s previous opponents. he might not be able to get hit again because he will not be able to get up after the first.
of course this is realized by pac’s camp thus they will train or develop a way to avoid getting hit or may capitalize on it to make it to pac’s advantage.
question: will cotto’s defeating pac make him p4p best?

October 27, 2009 at 11:19 pm
(236) Eddie C says:

Cotto has been hit hard and confused after. But he out punched all those boxers who had da opportunity 2 beat him. From Corley, 2 Clottey, he still put da big W in his record book. Now Margarito gave Cotto a beating dat he will not 4get. But as we all heard, Margarito mite have cheated 4 dat win. Cotto has took thousands of hits, and never has he looked scared, scratched, n cut in a fight. But only da Margarito team knows. Come NOV. Cotto will be a very hard n tough opponent 4 Pacman. Cotto is 100 times different then Oscar, n Ricky, n he will be at his best, cuz dis man refuses 2 fall.

Marquez and Morales have seen dat dem self. Even though dis fight is gonna b at da same weight, Cotto is still da stronger n better boxer. Dis will b da fight of Pacmans life. Cotto will b announced da winner after 8.

(242) Manuel says:

Anybody who has seen Cottos fight knows that he has beaten every southpaw he has fought.Talking about speed Cotto fought and beat Sugar Shane Mosley and Zab Judah , both with great speed.I really can’t predict whos going to win.One thing is for sure,it will be a great fight and all of us boxing fans will be the real winner.

November 2, 2009 at 3:52 am
(243) glenn says:

PACMAN round 4 KO. Cotto is smarter than Hatton so I give him two extra rounds.

1. SPEED. manny unarguably has the fastest hands that boxing hasn’t seen since young Ali.

2.Footwork. Have to seen Manny’s calves? His lower body is in great shape to move. He can be on his toes, off-balanced & still deliver KO blows. Counter

3. A few years back he was definately a brawler, but the last 3 years he’s been partying less and training more to become a well-rounded fighter. Proof… He boxed his way past Dela Hoya. A fighter with blazing speed, movement, and KO power = pound for pound.

People say he’ll never beat Mayweather. Most people haven’t seen Manny fight until he fought Dela Hoya! Before that he was just another very good, Filipino fighter that they never paid attention until now. Nuff said

November 2, 2009 at 6:32 am
(244) M@RiO P.R. says:

Ok, everybody should stop comparing other fighters to Cotto. Specially because those other fighters are not even close to Cotto’s style. Second, the man got that puertorican (straight from the island; not a fake U.S. puertorican) street fight mixed with an elite boxer knowledge.

Accept reality, Puerto Rico brings the best fighters.

November 2, 2009 at 8:09 am
(245) dante says:

This will be a very good fight. I think that Pacquiao would win over Cotto by TKO. First of all, because of his trainer Roach. I think that Roach is the most intelligent trainer, he always comes up with a good tactics in how Pacman would fight. Second, becuase of Pacman’s speed & power punches, Pacman can punch with both left & right hand, plus he has a very accurate punching ability plus his speed. But still Cotto is larger than Pacman. Cotto has also a strong power punch & quite good speed, although he doesn’t have a good defense. But if Cotto will work more of his defense, he will have a more chance of winning. I’m also scared that Cotto might throw a lucky power punch to Pacman that will lead to a knock down. May the best fighter win!

(247) Castro says:

I like Cotto in 11. I’ve watched most of Cotto’s fights, and they have all been exciting. Cotto is a strong guy, and can take any 1 at his weight. I believe this fight will go da distance, but will be stoped by 11th. Pacman has da speed n footwork 2 keep him up n moving around da ring. But Miguel has da courage 2 win. cotto will out punch pacman, he is stronger, harder, n very physical. He also as a great chin, ang good defence. Cotto will land several harder punches then Pacman, and will hurt him as well. Cotto will pull dis out like he did 2 Zab Judah, either Pac falls, or ref calls it.

November 2, 2009 at 4:01 pm
(248) Manny says:

It is good to see so many people talking here about the fight. I don’t like to say this, but many of them don’t know anything about boxing. How you are going to compare the De La Hoya vs Pacquiao fight with this fight?? How you are going to say at this point that De La Hoya is faster that Cotto. De La Hoya was faster that him in his prime, but not when he fought Pacquiao? If you know about boxing, you know that Pacquiao will never beat De La Hoya when he was in his prime.

Have you seeing Cotto’s fight against Mosley??? How quick Cotto was??? Was speed a difference in the fight? People think Manny’s speed is going to be too much for Cotto. Again what happen to Mosley’s speed when he fought Cotto. You guys said the same thing when Cotto fought Mosley. What was the difference in the fight? Manny is going to have Cotto’s jab in his face all fight long or let’s say until the fight is over. That is what stops speed, a good quick jab, which Cotto have. Cotto not only have a quick jab, his jab is strong. He is a lefty changed to a righty so just think how Manny is going to feel with that left jab in his face coming from a true welterweight. And not only the jab is going to be a factor, Cotto left hook to the body and face will be all over Manny’s body and face. Manny likes to drop his right hand when throwing his left hand. You can’t do that against Cotto!!

Another fight people like to bring is Hatton’s. Are you kidding me!!! Hatton wasn’t even that good and I don’t even what get into it.

Manny’s boxing skills are not even great and he is not even a smart fighter. We all like him (and include myself in the list) because of the way he fights. He is just a brawler with great speed and is thrilling to see him fight because he will not back down and always comes to fight. I don’t expect any difference on Nov 14th.

Manny will never beat true welterweights like Cotto, Mayweather or Mosley.

Cotto is going to be way too strong for Pacquiao. The fight will be over between 6th and 8th.

I have read each one of the comments and one word that is associated with cotto was “warrior” and for pacman is “speed”. The comaparison and contrast seems to have points to consider, no doubt about it. For the boxers whom each fighter (cotto/pac) fought from previous bouts, they had their excuses or shall I say from the critics and fans excuses maybe, well you can say all you want, but accepting a defeat would be gladly appreciated. For sure after nov14 big fight there will still be more excuses for who ever will be unlucky on this night. One thing is for sure, we are not talking about LUCK here on the night of nov14 but fate, that pacman will reign as the ultimate fighter the world has ever had! It will be in guiness world of book record for sure next edition. For cotto fanatics, just need to accept defeat as early as now, just dont lose hope and just pray that cotto will be in its normal condition after the early fight KO. I’ll put my money for manny in 3rd round KO that is for sure, cotto can’t just stand the pressure and will just lay on the canvass that he can’t even imagine and notice. I think I have said so much now, I’ll be waiting for you, cotto fanitics excuses after the fight night. I will be more than happy to hear your sweet excuses. peace out!

Foot work cotto will cut off the ring along with pacmans head. I like pac but he has put himself in a world of hurt.. Cotto will come in on fight night at 159+ way big for pacman. You will all see Cotto is the real deal.. You guys that think pac will win are living a lie dont kid your self. This will pacmans last fight at this weight. COTTO GOT SPEED!!….Trust me!! pacmans conditioning is amazing but not when he luging aroung the extra pounds.. Pacmans chin is not their I know that for a fact.. Trust me ;0) I know this for a fact.. You will se. Pac is not you all think he is… Nice guy but Cotto is just to much..

Cotto is gonna give Pacman hell on NOV.14. Eigther way dis weight goes 4 da fight, Cotto will still b da bigger man. This fight will b a difference 4 both fighters. Speed, Power,n Style, will b da key 2 dis bout. I do trust in Cotto 2 win dis fight, Pacman is da P4P champ, but 4 Cotto he is just another opponent 2 defeat. Cotto will capitalize on Mannys speed, n will over come his style. Cotto has started slow against southpaw opponents, but has always out punched da boxer whether wit speed or not, he still was da winner wit punching. Cotto has great power, n can dominate his opponents, especially when he has hurt dem. Pac will give da world a good fight,but Cotto will break da heart of his country, n prove he still da best at his weight. Cotto will KO Pacman! in 8, if not, sooner. just another sad day 4 da pacman.

Manny is a tough likeable guy, but he’s gonna come up real dizzy and tko’d because he is grossly overmatched in this one. Just Like all of Mayweathers opponents, they doesnt even stand a chance. Unless Cotto throuws this fight, he should beat the Buck Piss out of Pacman with out much real effort. Is this a Don King fight? Cotto can only loose a “fixed fight” in my oppinion. But like I said, follow the money… The Mayweather Pacman fight is worth 500M so Cotto just might take a Dive. Otherwise, if Cotto shows up for rea, its a playground fight and Manny doesnt belong in the hood ya feel me….lol

(265) rockershive says:

Cotto is a defensive fighter and offensive, as well. He has great defense to block punches and I see most of Pacquiao’s power punches are blocked. Cotto has speed and footwork which are both underrated. The Cotto-Quintana fight and Cotto-Judah fights were evidences that he can nullify the quickness of his rival especially for southpaws. Pacquiao can be defeated by faints in order to execute dreadful blows to his body. It should be the distance that Cotto would stand from in front of Pacquiao, a good defensive posture from a safe distance.
Cotto got all the tools to annihilate Pacquiao, the counter-punching, the power, the punching speed, (he should be) doing more head movements and faints, cutting-off and pressuring inside the ring, and his smartness in adjusting throughout the bout. Pacquiao is not smarter than Cotto guaranteed in a technical fight. Marquez lacks knock out power when he fought Pacquiao. Never give a fighter momentum to unleash his flurry, while defending you back out quick or counter quick. Cotto will TKO Pacquiao in the 9th or 10th round.

three months ago,i picked cotto to win by ko in later rnds coz team paquiao was in limbo with roach seeking permission to meet his priced fighter being busy on his tv shows while his opponent is on track for his preparation to the mega fight..things changed when i witnessed manny do his work out personally in the gym last oct 1 in baguio city..there i spoke w/ his sparmates porter and antillon saying paquiao has tremendous power in bothhands besides his speed and footwork,tht i saw as they had a spparing session..i also heard roach saying cotto to fall on the ninth rnd.finally.i paid close attention to what bob arum said that the fight bet miguel and manny would be a blockbuster coz both have their own styles of good boxing skills and that brings good fight……..with all that ive seen,manny doing so well in his preparation towards the fight and his team intact,he is most likely to win…and if he win by knock out,i’m willing to step in to build him a giant monument to stand in his home province gensan..a statue at 20 ft high,3x taller than that of oscar dela hoya in the u.s…he deserve’s such coz defeating miguel cotto,he puts himself in boxing imortality winning 7 titles in 7 wght divisions…so go manny .

I think, both fighters are great. It all depends if Manny can resist the punch of Cotto.
If Cotto cannot K.O. Manny, He’s(cotto) in serious trouble and lose by U.D. Since Manny throws a lot of punches on each of every rounds.

Dis will b a good fight, but i gotta give it 2 Miguel Cotto. Miguel has lots of power n lots of courage. Cotto has loss sum weight so he has gotten quicker. Manny still has da speed advanage, but will he act right 2 da aggressive Miguel Cotto? And guys, dont get me wrong, i like da pacmam, but miguel is da man dat can stop him, no mattter who is on Manny side, Cotto still da better boxer. I have seen dat most say dat speed kills, But not if da defender has great defence n footwork. Plus cotto has beat every Southpaw n speed boxer, n wit his only 1 defeat, he prove 2 stand strong 2 da heavy punching from Margarito either wit plaster or not he did stand tall, n did not get knock down. He took a knee scencing somtehing was wrong. So 2 me fellas, Cotto will look very sharp in this match. I believe Cotto will KO Manny, but it could also go 12. Cant wait! 6 days 2 go!

In the world of boxing…speed determines the winner. Ali, Suger Ray Leonard, and Sweet Pea has proving so with their talents. Pac Man not only has speed, he has stamina also. Pac Man will win by decision, if not, he will win by TKO in the late rounds if Cotto is unlucky.

Cotto needs a miracle to win this fight, just like the previous fighter that Manny had fought said “they can’t handle the speed” speed is power. Juan Diaz has beaten Cotto b4 in their lightweight class division…Juan Diaz who only has half of Pacquiao’s speed, power and skill…Cotto is a great fighter no doubt about it, but the question is “can he handle the speed and power of the Filipino pride?…this will be the continuation of Margarito’s beating, good luck to both of them! ! !

Speed! Yup, Manny has it, but does he have da body 4 da hard punching dat will come from Miguel Cotto?! Does Manny have a great chin 4 Miguel Cotto?! You all know he wont be hit like Morales, Marquez, or even Diaz had hit him!! Cotto will have sum problems wit Pacman, But if he hurts him wit every power shot, he will b da winner in dis match! Sum say if Cotto gets cut, he will lose. But how many fighter have u seen cut Cotto, besides Margarito’s hard gloves, if proven. Cotto’s cuts have all come from clash of heads. Cotto has great defence, and can stand strong 2 any 1 in the other corner. I doubt Pac will KO Cotto!

Pac is fast, but, remember that Zab’s is fast and he was a victim of Cotto and Shane Mosley to. He is a natural welter weight and a boxer that will use both sides in the ring. Pacquiao has to be care of his body. Cotto by ko in 6 or 8

November 11, 2009 at 12:34 am
(293) Gibo says:

Power punches of Cotto will never hit Pacman becuase pacman is good in dancing like mommy D. Cotto is too slow for pacman. Assuming there’s no TKO, Pacman will still win by the number of punches landed to cotto.

(294) FutureBoxingStar says:

To be honest with you all…The only reason you see sooo many people saying that Manny will win is because they’re either filipino or asian of some sort..Not a racist comment in any way but this is the only FILIPINO fighter in our era that they have and have all of a sudden become boxing experts!

Now, don’t get me wrong because Manny is a talented and wonderful fighter but going up 7 weight classes to fight a legitimate welterweight such as Cotto who does not have to suck himself dry the way Delahoya did or who is not dumb enough to keep his hands down and rush in with his face like Hatton will prove many people wrong about his jump up to 147!

Cotto is one of the best fighters in world and one of the best there is at keeping the tempo of the fight going his way. He will offset Manny’s speed the way he did Mosley, Margarito, Clottey and even Malinaggi and then attack Manny to the body, which will slow him down even more. Manny has a very weak body and a suspect chin and when he get’s hit by a bigger guy you will see that what I’m telling you right now is true.

Manny will make the fight interesting and stay in there for a while and maybe even make Cotto look bad for a few rounds but he will eventually fade because his power will not be enough to take Cotto out and Cotto will take him out in the later rounds!

Cotto by 9….

The better is missing and that’s Mayweather…

The big question is… CAN COTTO HIT PACMAN??????
Pacquiao will be playing in fast forward while
Cotto in slow motion….

No matter how fast Manny is, Cotto will land! every boxer gets hit, speed or not, its all part of boxing. By da way, Cotto likes 2 stay n front of his opponents, so if he has 2 he will b chasing Manny around da ring. Plus Pac likes 2 jump in n out, so he WILL get hit!! Cotto is 1 of da best in da sport, n he will prove it dis saturday. And YES! Cotto can slow down Manny, when punching his body. Cotto will damage Pacman. Truth hurts! huh?

(298) John Ratliff says:

I’m expecting Cotto to be a tough fight for Pacquiao. I was surprised by how fast Hatton was taken out and don’t think it would surprise me as much for that to happen to Cotto since Cotto is a fighter.

The problem with Cotto is that he sits on all of his punches except for the occasional quick left hook when he feels in command. Pacquiao’s reaction is so quick that he’s ready for Cotto. While Cotto can counter punch and it has been effective in the past with Morales and Marquez, Pacquiao has grown from those experiences. Cotto will try but as soon as he starts getting hit he reflex back into the same Cotto. One training camp won’t change who he is. Cotto will be able to land some shots on Pacquiao and when he does it will affect Pacquiao’s attack. But mostly he won’t be able to do it at will. Those shots will come when or if Manny makes mistakes.

Cotto intends to break Pacquiao down by overpowering him and that is the mistake made by De la Hoya and Hatton. You see this in his attitude that he is determined to prove he’s the bigger man in the ring.

Pacquiao doesn’t just hit you with a combination. He hits you with a combination followed by that straight left which is his baby. Cotto won’t see it coming. Cotto’s style is made for Pacquiao and styles make fights. I don’t expect Cotto to go down in the 1st round but I don’t think he makes it past the 10th. I’m predicting Cotto goes down in the 5th or 6th round and is KO’d in the 8th.

(300) phlogger says:

Truth be told, I’d actually like to see a match between Hatton vs. Cotto. Would make for a good slugfest between two guys who don’t know any better than to keep coming forward. Cotto has the better chin and lateral movement but both possess good power. Could go either way.
In terms of styles – Pacman vs. Cotto, I’d have to give it to Manny. He’s a crafty southpaw, with speed and power in both hands. Has great balance, stamina and agility but lacks BIGTIME in defense by not tucking his chin and fighting too upright. Hope that Freddy Roach has been working with him on those fundamentals. The thing is, Manny’s southpaw style is by far his best defensive weapon as it simply confuses opponents. Manny also throws devastating full-body LUNGING shots at opponents who back up when tired or hurt.
Cotto is a great fighter too who’s faced some top caliber guys. He is powerful and balanced and a good counterpuncher who can dish out some serious body shots as well. Tends to tire in the later rounds but has a better D than Manny by leaving himself less exposed.
Both are classy professionals who are “all business” and bring alot of good to the sport in so many ways.
Contrary to all the remarks made that Cotto is the “bigger” guy, well if what you all mean is bigger in terms of being a true welterweight for the longer period in his class, then perhaps. He’s (officially) only 1/2 inch taller than Manny @ 5’7″ and both (officially) have the same reach @ 67″. So, due to the fact that Manny just handed two “bigger” guys in Oscar (TKO-remember his face?) and Hatton (KO) both serious beat-downs, I’d have to say neither has the edge. This fight will be won by a test of true wills and determination.
Although I enjoy watching both fighters, I like the crafty veteran Pacquaio in this fight simply because I feel he’s in the prime of his life and is out to prove he is a true champion. I also see some bang-up fireworks in this one, and predict a late KO with Manny prevailing…. but only if Manny remains defensively sound early on. If he takes Cotto past 8 or 9, he will own him. Not to be contradictory but there’s no denying these cats are certainly powerful enough to knock one another out at any given time in the duration.

Too many people are sleeping on Cotto. A lot of money will be lost on this fight. De La Hoya was all for Manny when the fight was signed…until recently he has changed his prediction. Read what De La Hoya has said about the up-coming fight between Pacquiao and Cotto:

“Then, as the fight was getting closer and closer and I thought more about it, I’m now convinced Cotto will win. The reason is, first, nobody looks good against Clottey. He’s a difficult, strong, in-your-face type of fighter. And Cotto had that gash over his eye the whole fight. I thought he did an excellent job in light of that,” he added.

“Cotto has a good chin and a big heart. He’s a natural welterweight who hits hard and is also smart and fast. Pacquiao doesn’t hit hard enough to knock anyone out in the welterweight division. I’m basing that on my fight against Pacquiao. I could’ve stood there and put my face in front of him and he couldn’t have hurt me,”

“I think Cotto is a smart fighter. I think he’ll get through those first few rounds and in a smart way he’ll walk down Pacquiao and possibly stop him in the later rounds,”

Guys I hate to say this but this fight is about MONEY!!!! Mayweather and Pacman are worth a cool $300 to $500 Million Dollars. I hate that the boxing game is so corrupt but if Cotto doesnt take a dive they will cheat him on a decision. So for the record, I hope theres a rematch clause in the contract so after the Mayweather fight Cotto can go back and kick the shyt of the little riceman. LOL Im not prejudiced either, yaull know this fight is fixed. If this aint a fixed fight then my name is Julio Cesar Chavez the third….lol the shyts fixed Cuz….lol

I c ant believe how naive you all are. In a true UN-FIXED fight Cotto would Punish Pacquiao and then knock him unconscious in about 6-8 rounds. But the little Asians have never had a domanant role model since Bruce Lee and he was an Actor, what does that tell you. It tells you this fight is about MONEY MAYWEATHER AND NOTHING ELSE!! Mayweather will completely dominate Paquiao and he has too much dough to get bought off like Cotto is. I dont blame Cotto, take the bread homie! Asians, stick to squid and semiconductors the pound for pound game is not youre echelon…..

(311) phlogger says:

Hey Lito, not to “kick up dust” on your commentary but do you honestly believe that Cotto’s gonna take a dive so Manny can move on to fight Mayweather?
Wow man! I’m not saying you’re crazy but that’s quite a prediction in my opinion. Listen, I’m betting on Manny to win and it might go the distance but should it not and if Manny clearly KO’s Cotto (which is certainly a possibility given his power), how are guys like you all over the world gonna react? Now….if Cotto KO’s Manny (another great possibility) then what? Cotto goes on to fight Floyd, if Floyd doesn’t chicken out? Personally, I’d like to see Cotto/Mayweather moreso than Floyd & Manny. I don’t think Manny matches up well to Floyd at all due to the obvious reasons which I won’t go into.
But I’ll tell you this….I’d be willing to challenge and take your bet anytime if say within the next 4-8 months both camps agree to sign Mosely vs. Mayweather, I believe without a doubt that Shane will absolutely pick apart and destroy Pretty Boy Money Mayweather and hand him his first KO. I’ve been saying that for a few years but given the shape that Shane is in (to include all the BS about steroid use, etc) Shane is ready. Floyd isn’t. Floyd looks scared of Sugar Shane.
And if Shane was allegedly using the juice, the commission would have tested and suspended him just like they’ve done to other boxers like Fernando Vargas.
BTW Lito, I’m not Asian and mean no disrespect to the Asian/Malaysian community but your diatribe about Bruce Lee is way off base there podnah. Bruce was an actor but he devoted his life to his love of the martial arts and incidentally created/founded his own art – Jeet Kune Do – before losing his life in 1973 to cerebral edema. I personally am a huge fan of Bruce since the release of Enter the Dragon and have a veritable library and shrine of the man. If you don’t think Bruce Lee was a dedicated professional and instead just some choreographed screen actor, do some research and find out for yourself how he indeed was the epitome of the martial arts in that genre. He’d make today’s special effects big screen frauds like Steven Seagal and punks like Van Damme look like ineffective morons if they had the nerve to spar with him.

Short & Sweet… Pacman’s record after becoming a Featherweight (126 lbs)in 2004 is 10-2 with 7KO’s. He needed 8.8 rounds average per fight. Before at a lower weight, he went 39-1-2 draws with 30 KO’s and only needed 4.4 rounds per fight. Tells you something? Yeah, yeah, yeah, he won a weary Oscar de la Hoya way past his prime who fought Pacman at a weight he hadn’t been in over 12 years and Pacman did knockout Hatton, but only fought barely 4 minutes.

In Cotto’s case, he has beaten super natural welterweight boxers named Zab Judah, Shane Mosley, Joshua Clottey, Alfonso Gomez and only lost with Antonio Margarito whom needed 11 rounds and maybe plaster to win. If it wasn’t because of this loss with Plasterito, Cotto would still be an Undefeated champion. (Do to the recent events & finding with Margarito, I truely believe that Cotto is still undefeated).

Cotto started as a Light Welterweight (140) and his record was 27-0 with 21 KO’s needing 5.7 rounds per fight. As a Welter, his record is 7-1 with 6 KO’s needing 9.1 rounds average. Hence, Pacman has needed more than double the rounds after gaining weight while Cotto only increased his 40%.

Judah, Mosley, De la Hoya all agree that Cotto will win the fight. Do these 3 welter greats know something that the rest doesn’t? Even the great George Foreman says Cotto will win.

Cotto has train harder, longer & better while Pacman has been doing Head & Shoulders commercial, being in the glamor light, etc… This remembers me about the Rocky and Mr. T flick, remember?

Last but not least, no one remembers what happend in the early 80′s. A guy named Hand of Stone Duran, well loved by everyone went up in weight bit-by-bit as Pacman until he fought this guy named Suger Ray Lenord, whom was a natural welter just like Cotto. Sugar Ray made the mistake of his life to fight Duran his style- “Man-to Man”, Punch-to-Punch” while his true style was one like Ali, de la Hoya. He lost that fight but in the rematch, he fought his style and Duran gave up frustrated in the middle of the fight with his famous “NO MAS” (NO MORE) saying. The Pacquiao-Cotto fight is very similiar to the Duran-Lenord battles. If Cotto boxes, doesn’t go into a man-to-man punching piss in the first 3 rounds, Cotto will win by decision.

Carefull!, he might even KO Pacman late in the fight.

Pacquiao will definitely win, probably by Round 8 or 10. Unless Cotto could surprise Manny with his new moves and tactics. But for sure, Miguel will be the one who will be shocked of Pacman’s skill because the People’s Champ, the Pinoy Pride is a boxer who never stops learning, and actually getting stronger an better.
For Floyd Mayweather Jr.? It’s another story. He’s the one who’s destined to hurt Manny. But on the other hand, Pacquiao is the one who possess the ability to knock out him. I can’t wait the time they will face each other. That would be a battle for us to know, and for the world to reveal who is the real “Pound for Pound King”!

This fight is really too close to call, Manny is obviously very quick with both hand speed, and also footwork, but on the other hand Miguel is a ring technician who knows how to work the ring very well to is own advantage and make his opponent suffer from this. I don’t think the fight will go the distance and I defiantly know that the Miguel body shot will be a big factor in the fight. For all those who think Manny has got an easy night come November 14, you’s should have a long think, cus I think your gunna be suprised by the outcome.

If Pac didnt hit hard enough, De La Hoya’s face wouldnt have looked so swollen and beat up. Fact is, weight drained or not, these are pro fighters and knew what they were doing when they signed up for the fight. Im sure the drop in weight was a disadvantage for Hoya when they fought. Still, he shouldve had at least something left to bring to the table when he fought PAC. Fact is, PAC was too fast and there was nothing DLH could do. A 3 Punch combo in a sec or less. How do you prepare for that.

He has beat 2 big names in dis div, but none prove 2 b a match 4 him. But now he has chosen a tru warrior, so he will b punished! speed kills, but da hit from da wreck can do much more damage! Cotto by TKO.

Yes sirr, my man Cotto drops da p4p chump! After 1, Cotto will start connecting every shot, then after 2, he will overcome da speed of pacman. After 3, cotto defence will look sharp, then comes 4, Manny on da floor! HAHA! Cotto baby! all night!!!

(331) Aaron Paul says:

i think Manny will win this fight by tko in the late rounds because, cotto cant punch when running backwards, cotto is not patient, pacquiao is too fast for cotto….we’ll see who wins….

it’s going to be manny over cotto, of course because he got everything what it takes to win this fight. Try to figure out, your $270 bet (if you go for paquiao) would only win $100.

That was a good fight but Pacquiao had the win by round 9, even at round 5 I dont think Pacquiao came close to being impress by Coto strength…
Two things to say
Coto can take a punch and more impressive is Manny can take a punch
By round 8 I thought they should have stopped the fight definitely at 9, but I’ll give it to Coto he lasted till the end

Funny, but I expected to see “LITO” in here with more bogus commentary & worthless predictions from his above posts. Bet he’s pacing about trying to figure out how to payoff his bookie. Whatever you do bro, don’t avoid those cats too long cause they don’t play around. Ha!
I hate to shatter all your illusions but if ANYONE (like Lito) still believes that Cotto threw this fight for the dough, seriously – just take a good look at his battered face. Manny was virtually unscathed.
Lito, thanks again for mentioning your negative Bruce Lee remarks. I’d have to say that at this point Manny Pacquaio clearly is the Bruce Lee of boxing. He’s a professional dedicated to his craft and a class act. Cotto is a good guy too and I hope he returns to his previous form, I have absolutely nothing derogatory to say about him. Best of luck and success to both fighters.

(352) Drew says:

No more doubters nor pacman bashing allowed. Coz pacman not only won but completely destroyed the much bigger cotto. What happened tonight is exactly what pacman haters never have thought in their nightmares. Wow how sweet it is for my hero to win and must be a big shame for the people that thought PAC was a sure loser. So this is legitimacy no more excuses. Cotto was younger ,and bigger and supposedly smarter so pac haters you all can officially shut up now and rest And the victory over hatton dela hoya Diaz Marquez were real that no one in the world can take away from pacman coz cotto was bigger and stronger

November 15, 2009 at 2:38 am
(353) Ultimate Boxing Expert says:

I feel Pacman will surely win with a TKO in the 12th round and will have Cotto down in the 3rd and 4th rounds.Also,Cotto’s face will change markedly during this fight.

my friends, let us not fail to see that our great fighter PACQUIAO won because the Great Almighty GOD is so pleased with manny’s humbleness and acknowledgment of GOD’s great glory !!! Manny is the ONLY fighter in the world who actually prays immediately before & after his fights and clearly acknowledges in his interviews that he is very thankful to GOD….let’s glorify GOD and He will give Filipinos more victories !!! Praise be to GOD for manny !!!

Pacquiao never fail us Filipinos. So boxing fans, Pacman won and the whole country rejoice with him. Pacman is surely the greatest fighter today.

More power Manny. You’re not just a true warrior but a true Christian!

November 15, 2009 at 5:57 am
(361) Both fan says:

Easy fight for Pacman. He can connect at Cotto at will the WHOLE round and even can take Cotto’s punches.

Talking w/ Cotto’s punching speed:
Cotto is too SLOOOW for Pacman. I expected that Cotto will be slow
but when i watch the fight. Cotto is much MORE SLOW than i expected.
Cotto’s had come against speedy opponents before and beat them.
But Pacman is different.
Pacman has the speed and ACCURACY w/ his punches. not just punches but LOTS of punches.
If Pacman had the speed and accuracy then he can deliver effectively his firepower.
Or trade punches.
“you give me 1 power punch then i trade with 3 power punches”
then whose the winner?
it may not be a knockdown but still earning points.
Win by knockdown or by decision is just the same. Its still a win!

As everyone says,
Cotto throws his knockout punch this Sunday
This punch will expected to land on Tuesday.
That too slow!
Coz compare to Pacman, he throws his knockout punch today and it will expected to land on the same day.
One point in a fight about mid and late rounds Pacman urges Cotto to trade punches.
Like “Common bring it on” Common lets trade punches!
as Cotto start moving away from Pacman around the ring. (back bicycle)
I can read Cotto’s face saying:
No NO NO, Im losing the trade of punches! I can’t take it any more! I need to survive till 12 rounds”

Talking w/ Cotto’s power:
I notice Pacman at one point of a time just dare to take punches from Cotto,
Pacman is not insane!
because he knows that he can take those or trade to Cotto’s punches.

Talking about Cotto’s chin:
BEFORE the fight i predict this fight will be winning by decision. No knockdowns.
As both sides can take strong punches and a had a thin chance of a knockdown.

DURING the fight I never Expect this and i hate to say, but Cotto’s has been knocked down by Manny!
A legitimate knockdown (not a slip!) that make Cotto’s hit his gloves in the canvass.
Where’s the durable chin now?

During Cotto’s knockdown:
I can see at Cotto’s face saying,
“this is not a joke! He’s got the EFFECTIVE combination and SPEEED to deliver his firepower,
Manny is too slippery for me. I CAN’t hit him with better shots. How can i deliver my own firepower?”
The last question is the Big question fo Cotto!

Talking w/ Cotto’s jabs:
I found Cotto’s jabs more strong, efficient and stingy. but it’s not that effective against a moving
target like Pacman. It would hit Manny, and yes it stunned Pacman, several times during the fight.
but jabs cannot knockdown a boxer like Pacman. Be REAL!
Cotto’s needs not just jabs and combinations to deliver his power
but jab and GOOD EFFECTIVE combination.
This is a trainers job..

Cotto’s Trainer:
Manny has a good trainer than Cotto.
Roach has more experience in teaching Manny what is the most EFFECTIVE combination.
Like selecting the right weapon in the fight. Cotto’s trainer doesnt have.
Somebody still dont know that boxing is also a mind game and teamwork.
Chances of winning starts at the training camp and finishes in the ring! its a team effort.

Manny training camp has the right people to unleash his strenght against his opponents.
Cotto had two trainers. you may 2, 5, 10 trainers. but are they the right ones?
Experience had serve at it’s BEST!

SPEED – Before The fight Cotto still underestimate this advantages of Pacman.
Cotto believes that he beat speedy opponents before.

But he forget to consider that together with speed theres something else after the word:




and it KILLS!
you may had the firepower but sluggishnes and imprecise where to hit your target is not effective boxing.
you can take and TOLERATE those accurate and power punches
You can stand on power punches.
you have a durable chin for power punches.
but this is not the way of winning a round in boxing.
Others may say that its also effective in tiring your opponents.
BUT PACMAN is a 12 rounder boxer!
its more recognizable in his past fights that he can go 12 rounds.
He can sustain that speed, power and accuracy until you had enough of it.

He never dodge to anyone’s offer to fight, definitely not like FM Jr. : )

sports my friend is life and death.it is so bec. it demands so much physicality…most especially so with boxing, haven’t you heard of boxers getting comatose after a fight? or worse, get killed right in the fight itself…haven’t you recently read about z-gorres?

its good to know that you pray before you play because in every little thing that we do or in this world doesn’t happen unless GOD says so….even satan cannot do any harm unless GOD allows it…..such is the power of our Almighty GOD that only a fool will not depend on Him…

read the Bible intently so you will come to know intimately how powerful, caring and so loving our GOD is….the heck, who would give His only Son just to save us undeserving humans….indeed GOD is so awesome!!

He made pacquiao win because He likes the humbleness,humility and simplicity of pacquiao….indeed “the humble shall be exalted…”

read the Bible now and change your life for the better my friend or you can try this: http://www.preacherinbluejeans.com

Cotto proved a great dancer, however, with his backpedalling skills..great for other boxers but not for Pac-Man with his power-packed and speedy punches.

Pacquiao is a true athlete with a big heart, belief in God and 2 X-factors,hehe..anting-anting tsaka c Krista, hehe..
