    Default this version of cotto would destroy pacqiou

    Cotto looked amazing last night, and he was mentally strong coming in after a win over margarito, he was in great shape, didnt fade, and wasnt weight drained. I think that version of cotto beats pac

    Destroy Pacquiao? Highly doubt it, styles make fights. Now I do admit that this was a better Cotto than the weight drained catch weight Cotto that fought Pacquiao. But Pac is too fast and too strong and I feel he would beat Cotto convincingly once again.

    Styles make fights so I wouldn't say destroy but I think at 154 it would be different fight. Cotto with his new trainer and weight is a different fighter compared to when he faced Pacquiao so it would make a real tough fight. I highly doubt a Cotto - Pacquiao fight at 154. Mayweather and Pacquiao should fight each other and call it a day.

    I don't know about "destroy"..... but I agree with you. Last night's Cotto would've beaten Pac. Personally, I would put the odds at about 60-40 in Cotto's favor. Too bad a rematch will probably never happen.

    I think Cotto would have beaten anyone but Mayweather in that form. I don't usually rate today's fighters with the greats, but I think Mayweather would live with Duran and Leonard at their respective peaks. How can you hurt what you can't hit cleanly?

    Cotto is getting very very competitive, the Diaz's effect is defo showing up. I wouldn't go as far as saying that he would destroy PAcquiao though, Pacquiao steamrolled everything in front of him except MArquez, who seems to have the style to challenge him.

    Which is why Pac Man wanted another catch weight. The fight would be very interesting and exciting.

    I don't think Pac needs a baseball bat to face Miguel.

    Fact.

    Oh, the baseball bat was for Miguel to use? My bad.

    Of course, Cotto last night would have been competitive against anyone. It wasn't a catchweight fight and Mayweather gave him all he wanted similar to what he did with Oscar. If Pacquiao moved up to 154 and challenged Cotto at his natural weight instead of the catchweight nonsense the fights would probably be more competitive. But alas, Pacquiao will fight people at a catchweight and get credit as a small guy fighting bigger men and Mayweather will fight people at their weight class for their championships while being outweighed and be called a coward. So go figure.

    Did any of these guys start out at the same weight as PAC? So why should PAC be expected to jump up 30 weight classes?
