Miguel Cotto taking Manny Pacquiao way too seriously

pacquiao vs cotto
When Manny Pacquiao is going over political campaign strategy, Miguel Cotto is training.

When Pacquiao is mapping out his postfight concert schedule, Cotto is training.

When Pacman is bobbing up and down in a swimming pool, Cotto is running the streets of Tampa the way a fighter is supposed to.

When Pacquiao is trying to keep Coach Freddie Roach from biting the head off of Michael Koncz, it’s harmony and harmony only in the quiet camp of Cotto.

When Pacquiao is shooting hoops in Baguio, Cotto is doing special physical conditioning with Phil Landman in Tampa.

When Pacman was running off to Manila to aid typhoon victims, Cotto was eating, sleeping and breathing boxing in Florida.

While Pacquiao is besieged by his outside of boxing interests—commercials, TV shows, movies and more—Cotto’s only focus is on their Nov. 14 fight in Las Vegas.

While Pacman’s poor choice of flooded, muddy Baguio as a training site caused a one day delay in the arrival of fresh sparring partners Danny Escobar and ex-champ Jose Luis Castillo, Cotto’s hired hands have been in camp from Day One.

While Pacquiao is trying to make up for lost time, cramming like a college student pulling an all nighter before a tough exam, Cotto had a big head start on the start of his serious training.

While the Pacman camp is split into two warring factions, Team Cotto is united, not divided.

Add it all up and what have you got, you Everlast Einsteins?

Do the distractions, the delays, the issues add up to a disastrous defeat for Megamanny? Is that light at the end of the tunnel a runaway freight train named Miguel I’m No Cotto which will derail the Pacman Express?

Don’t be silly.

The bottom line is Cotto is going to be over prepared.

He’s just taking this fight way too seriously almost as if the rest of his career depended on it.

He’s just training as though he thinks that being The Man who knocks off Manny will be some big deal.

Lighten up, Miguel, nobody likes a grinder.

Loosen up, will you?

Stop being such a nerd, such an Urkel.

  1. I don't get it. If Cotto were taking this fight too lightly you'd be talking trash about him too.One of the few articles only about Cotto and you manage to mess it up.This site is the b.s.!Everyone is chewing on Pacquiao's jock.Why don't you give a hard working fighter credit for working hard instead of just trashing him for it?!....CHUMPS!!!

  2. Alpha u r right! They are talking about Cotto as he is a Dumb sh!t fighter, he is ELITE!! He for me is the best welterweight of this time. Give credit to a man that fought almost an entire fight with a nasty cut (vs Clottey) he put his health at risk to give US fans a great fight. Everyone in this fkn bissnes are hailing Paquiao as some kind of boxing god! come on he is B..S..!! He lost to Marquez 2 times (but the power of $$$ made him win). He beat DLH waaaaaaooooo!!! I can beat him without any boxing experience. Hatton fight just prove that paquiao finaly started using his other hand... nothing else Hatton was a punching bag he didnt bring any defence any nothing! but Cotto... he is just amazing he is the "Bravehart" of boxing...


  3. Thanks for agreeing,it's hard to actually find boxing fans and not fanatics who follow the sport and not just the latest craze.Pacquiao is a great fighter,but everyone made his head swell with his last two victories.How do you think Pacquiao would have done vs. Clottey,a fighter who is very underrated?Or against Margarito,who couldn't actually knock Cotto down (plaster or not).And Pac does not have the power Margarito has.I can't wait for this bout.I know Cotto is gonna dominate.Keep traing hard Cotto,forget about what all these haters are saying.Knock him out champ!

  4. We've reserved a room in the ER for Cotto when reality comes crashing down on him.

  5. After the fight,Pacquiao is gonna shake even more than Roach....CHUMPS!!

  6. yo alpha you right! give the man his props, listen Cotto when! and I mean when he Ko's manny he will be the first in a long line of fighters to beat the self proclaimed king. cotto will do what others tried to do and failed to do. then what will people say " oh manny was distracted, cotto was to big, its was a low blow that helped Cotto win" blah blah blah. Cotto win stop he run of This king and take over the throne as new Ruler of the Ring. Edwin @ ivan82_chi@yahoo.com
