MAB is saying it's difficult to hit Pac, you have to explore the body against him. Morales boxed him but the one who hit him well was JMM. Manny's southpaw stance and unorthodox style along with his angles make it difficult to work the body and though JMM was able to get inside you often saw the price he paid in doing so (ending up on the canvas).

MAB describes Cotto as a tough fighter with an olympic boxing style, shows good body movement and footwork. Cotto's weakness in this fight is leaning forward and becoming vulnerable to uppercuts, so he has to remember to keep his guard high and protect his face/eyebrows(cuts). Cotto has to use good movement turn Manny and work the body, keeping his guard high but not forgetting that Manny will also work the body. When Cotto gets hit he can't let Manny know that he's hurt by backing off because Manny is unforgiving and will jump all over him.
Tiss all sir.
