November 14, 2009 is drawing near and most boxing aficionados are definitely excited. November 14, 2009 is Firepower: Manny Pacquiao VS Miguel Cotto. The clash between Pound-for-pound #1 Manny Pacquiao and WBO Welterweight Champion Miguel Cotto is drawing near and pretty much excited because I am a Pacquiao fan and a long-time Miguel Cotto fan.
I have made a preview on this fight on my “Manny Pacquiao’s Next Opponent” series post. I am standing by my prediction that this is going to go 12 rounds and the W goes to Pacquiao by Split Decision. Pacquiao knows how dangerous Cotto is with his huge frame, strength and power. That alone will make Pacquiao cautious enough that he will not be engaging much on Cotto. While Cotto will be going for head and body shots, Pacquiao will be going in and out. Pacquiao will fire quick shots on Cotto while going out of danger by the time Cotto is about to unload body shots on him. Pacquiao’s speed will be a main factor
Cotto is dangerous for Pacquiao, while Pacquiao is also dangerous for Cotto. For the full fight preview that I did on Manny Pacquiao VS Miguel Cotto long before it was scheduled, please don’t mind visiting this link.
