    Manny Pacquiao will knock out cotto i promise you that

  3. Zimnes312 says:

    if pacquiao wanted to fight for a belt he should of made the fight at 147 which freddy roach said he can make easly and be good. so why didnt he do that?

  4. Zimnes312 says:

    thats the point, 140-147 lbs, why cant cotto fight at his weight at 147 where he been for yrs.if he is FORCE to drop weight to keep the fight alive is stupid.

  5. G0dification says:

    @Zimnes312 – What kind of bullshit are you talking about? Welterweight is between 140-147lbs. and 145lbs means that they’re still within welterweight division despite being a catchweight at the same time. ODLH fought Bhop for his belt at catchweight right? Pac is the #1 contender for Cotto’s belt and according to WBO rules, Cotto will have to defend his title in order to retain his belt. It doesn’t make any sense at all if he losses the belt this way when he could have defended it.

  7. Zimnes312 says:

    who course this aint a title fight. manny doesnt want to fight at the welter weight limit of 147. also who care about de la hoyas title he is a paper champ who couldnt win the big fights.

  8. studplayrico says:

    Very true indeed. Both fighters are great but one is faster (Pacquiao) and one is more technically sound. (Cotto)

  9. chapple37 says:

    even if he does get 7 weight classes his title from flyweight to welter arent as difficults going from lightweight to superfeatherweight throught jr middle

    dont get to dick happy fool
    i see pacman havin advantage in speed but cotto has advantage in timing & power
    if pacman can get cotto to trade putasos…then we are seein another loss for cotto. but if cotto can keep pacman off his flurries then we see cotto winning the fight by decision

  14. studplayrico says:

    50/50 chance. One round KO by Pacman? Get real Pacman is not fighting Hatton. Cotto is a very good boxer that has great timing and jab, those are the tools to beat Pacquiao. Pacquiao has a tremendous punch but seems to get out of balance trying to connect. (Marquez fight).

    Win or loose i cant wait to c this fight. it will b so much better than gayweather fight wit marques. watch how mAny people like to c dis fight better than mayweather also.

  16. whitezer24 says:

    anybody know if there will be a 24/7 programme for this fight??

  17. G0dification says:

    The way i see it, if Pac can last against Cotto’s powershots in 3-4 rounds…he’ll pick Cotto apart from rounds 5-12 or KO him by 9-10 either via TKO or KO. Both Cotto and Pac start fast in the fight but the difference is, Cotto tames down as the fight goes on while Pac either keeps up the pace or steps on the pedal some more if he smells a hint of blood. I give Cotto the window of opportunity for 3-4rounds, if he can’t dispose Pac within those rounds, he’s in big trouble.

  18. OZIASALLAH says:

    I love manny but dont be too shocked if Cotto K.o’s him within 5 anything over 5 cotto will be a bloody mess my opinion

  19. royjones786 says:
