I don't think it will be a problem--Pacquiao's balance has improved signficantly over the past 3 fights. In the Oscar fight he had to over extend because of Oscar's reach. He didn't do that for David Diaz or Hatton and seeing Cotto has nearly the same reach--he won't have to either. Pacquiao will just have to work on his timing.

Ariza hasn't received the credit he deserves for helping Pacquiao improve his balance. For the past 7/8 years--Pacquiao was working with Justin Fortune, a guy with no educational background in conditioning.
