Cotto: No Doubt I Would Beat Pacquiao in a Rematch

Last Saturday in New York's Madison Square Garden, WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (37-2, 30KOs) avenged his 2008 TKO loss to Antonio Margarito. After a great display of boxing, Cotto stopped Margarito in the tenth round. The Mexican boxer's right eye was swollen shut and the ringside doctors would not allow him to continue. There is one more defeat that Cotto wants to avenge - a November 2009 TKO loss to Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs).

Cotto credits his new team, which includes Cuban trainer Pedro Diaz, as being the difference in his style and the building blocks to rebuilding his career. The star of Puerto Rico has a firm belief that Pacquiao would lose a rematch. When they clashed in 2009, Cotto was dropped twice and took a beating before he was stopped in the twelfth round.

"I have no doubt about it [that I would beat Pacquiao in a rematch]. With the right encouragement and with the people that are now in my team, we have no doubt that," Cotto told Esteban Pagan.

OK. I agree to disagree on that one. I just hope Cotto doesn't stay with Arum and doesn't do anymore in-house fights unless it's Manny. He needs to go to Golden Boy like he was a few years ago before he got the first Manny fight. Him and Oscar like each other and that would be the best move for h...

[QUOTE=GOD-FR33]Hold fast. Good post up until you said "[/QUOTE] Marquez does everything better than Cotto outsie of a jab.

Even if Pac comes in at the official weigh in at 145 and Cotto at 54, Pac beats Miguel. Cotto won by by using movements which he didn't do in during the 1st fight and he has a target in the form of Margarito's right eye. Even though Marg didn't land that much, Cotto's face was showing bruises. ...
