Manny Pacquiao is aiming of winning this fight and become the first boxer to become a champion in seven different divisions.
He’s training very hard for this fight, considering the fact that Miguel Cotto is a very strong and fast fighter.
On the other hand, Miguel Cotto’s training was said to be relaxed and a lot says that Miguel Cotto has a lot of bad habbits during training. But this don’t make Miguel Cotto a weak fighter.
Miguel Cotto has put-up a big name on his fighting division winning battles against strong and fast fighters like Mosley.
But Cotto has a disadvantage in this upcoming fight. He will need to trim down his weight to as low as 143lbs from his normal 150+lbs weight. This will surely drain out a lot of energies from Cotto but could as well make him move much faster than ever.
Manny is a very good fighter now and his right hand is now as good as his left hand. This will be Manny’s best weapon for this fight if he could go near Cotto and beat him up with very strong punches. Cotto is a very strong fighter though and could tolerate a lot of hits. Cotto is also much taller than Pacquiao which makes him much harder to take down.
Pacquiao needs to work his way for this fight and for sure, Freddie Roach has a good strategy for this fight.
Even journalists and boxing experts can’t say who will win this fight.
But considering Pacquiao’s speed and new boxing skills, Miguel Cotto will surely be in a very tight position and easy winning for both players won’t be possible.
