The first four rounds had it all. Amazing stuff from BOTH fighters. Cotto fought a great 1st round and use his jab to keep Manny at bay.
Manny's rope-a-dope was completely unexpected. He took Cotto's best shots and he never loss focus.
This fight should have been stopped in the 9th or 10th round. From round 6-12, Manny looked like Sugar Ray Leonard, just bouncing up and down, throwing every punch known to man and landing at will. Speed and Power from both hands. I told people before this fight that size really doesn't matter. What does matter is SKILL and SPEED.
Pac impresses me every time I see him fight. I don't even know if he is actually in his prime- he could be just scratching the surface.
Pacman vs Pretty Boy fight would be absolutely epic.....I'm talking Leonard vs Hearns epic..... The two greatest fighters of this generation with completely opposite styles going toe-to-toe. I need to find some vacation time because when this fight goes down, I wanna be there to witness it.
Yes, this was like a Super Bowl win. 7th title in 7 different weight classes and only Manny Pacquiao has accomplished this in the history of boxing- that's legendary.
You don't have to be Pinoy to enjoy this victory: Manny's style is just appreciated by even the casual boxing fan, much like Tyson and RJJ.
