Manny Pacquiao vs Miguel Cotto: The Big Prediction!

Ok I am ready to give you my prediction on Manny Pacquiao vs Miguel Cotto. This super fight is slated for November 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Yes my friends, this is a "can't miss" fight! You get two of the toughest and certainly skillful fighters squaring off against one another. What more could you ask for!? It doesn't get much better than this. So what's my prediction?

Here is my quick run down... Cotto is in trouble. It's going to be a helish fight and I see Cotto getting knocked down but not out early in the fight. I expect Pacquiao with his rapid fire and Robin Hood accuracy to nail Cotto off balance. Everyone gets rattled the first time they taste Pacquiao's power and I expect as rugged and tough as Cotto is, he will be no different.

Pacquiao has the legendary Freddie Roach in his corner, and a recent departure with Cotto splitting from his Uncle and trainer, Evangelista (who played a significant role in Cotto's camp)... I can't help but to wonder if the timing for Cotto couldn't come at a worse time in his career? Cotto and his uncle spilt back in April of this year. Evangelista was replaced by Joe Santiago. I can't tell you how well the two will pair (Cotto and Santiago), but I can tell you that Roach and Pacquiao are the best well oiled machine in the business.

Can Pacquiao lose this fight? Of course he can... it's Boxing! Cotto is not an easy challenge for anyone, and I certainly don't think Pacquiao will have an easy night the way he did against Oscar De La Hoya and Ricky Hatton, but if Pacquiao doesn't stop Cotto in the late rounds, then I fully expect him to win on the scorecards.

Pacquiao has a lot to prove because many critics are refusing to giving him proper credit for his dismantling of De La Hoya and Hatton. Cotto who suffered a questionable loss to Antonio Margarito also has something to prove to the critics. So I expect this to be a barn burner.

Final Prediction: In the end though my prediction is that I wouldn't be surprised if Pacquiao won by a late round KO, but most likely he will win a well deserved unanimous points victory.

  1. Hmmmm alot of ban wagons outhere well people come Nov.14th we will all witness the destruction of the Pac man ban wagons.All credit do to manny he is a great fighter but this time he has bitten more than what he can chew. Cotto wins buy knock out.....

  2. yes cotto is the great boxer but pacman is not just great but smart boxer and awkward kind of style you don't know where the punch came from, sometimes from nowhere and suddenly landed on your face that's pacman best weapon in boxing but overall he has skill,like his speed with power, left and right hand with power, head movement and footwork, can punch in any angle, his left hand is the most dangerous of all,his accuracy is great just like sharp shooter, where he wants to hit he can hit it.so, i think you will never wonder why lots of people vote to pacman to win against cotto, i like cotto but i go with pacman knockout victory.

  3. pacman is faster, cotto is stronger. both of them can take a punch well because they are both fighters. but a power punch that is blinding and comes in any angle can KO a good fighter. although cotto is stronger, pacquiao can see his punches and can move away from them very well. but cotto won't be able to see where pacman's punches are coming from and he won't be able to react in time to throw a counterpunch because as soon as he sets up for a counter, another punch from pacman will land in his face. speed is power in boxing. pacquiao will win by KO in the later rounds.


  5. This fight wont last more than 10 rounds it will go to pac on a TKO due to a cut or MAC knocking PAC out.
