Post your predictions fellas...
Pacman TKO in Round 10
Pac with 6 rounds to Cotto's 3 before TKO
I kinda think Manny will dance around once he feels the bull headed Cotto. Dance enough to get a decision......
Yeah I do see this happening. In fact, that was a similar gameplan that they had against DLH. Go in, pepper him with shots, and then GTFO and repeat. Had DLH not quit on his stool, I think Manny would have KO'd him.
I never understood why people are hating on Manny saying that he couldn't KO Delahoya. Making a grown man, battle tested Hall of Famer QUIT is even more impressive in my opinion!
That, and De La Hoya's fought the most vicious punchers out there, and no one was able to KO him except Hopkins (who isn't a hard puncher but his body shot that KO'd DLH was perfectly placed). De La Hoya's chin was legendary.
Rounds 2-4 of Pacquiao-Cotto were Hearns-Hagler calibur rounds.
I don't think anyone's hating on Manny for the DLH fight, it's just that the DLH that went in against Manny was a shell of his former self. He was fighting at a weight that he hadn't fought at since 2001
. Plus, Roach, who trained Oscar for the Mayweather fight, even said so himself that Oscar couldn't pull the trigger anymore, that's why he didn't hesitate to get Manny to take the fight.
