pac's overall strategy will be to potshot cotto early while using his mobility to force cotto to chase pac. if cotto doesn't chase, then pac will simply outspeed and use southpaw angles to hit and run. then around the 5th round (when cotto gets tired) pac will turn up the volume punching and either keep cotto in a defensive shell, outworking cotto or stop cotto late either by tKO or force cotto to quit again.

cotto's strategy should be: don't chase pac and waste energy. he needs to channel jmm. never back up. punches in buncheswhen pac punches. cut off the ring and force pac into the ropes or corners. throw hard jabs that will move pac to where cotto wants to. cotto has to concentrate on the body early to slow pac down. later in the fight cotto needs to throw almost exclusively right hands to the head. I highly recommend cotto bring in valero for sparring.
