Default Is Cotto In Over His Head?

A past prime former 140lb Title holder, coming off a real hard fight which he was stopped in, jumping up to a weight he's never fought at, and fighting a unbeaten peak title holder?

Thoughts, NSB.....

That's a good point. When you look at it from that standpoint it looks like Cotto is in over his head.

I think most (like myself) simply don't think too highly of Foreman.

It would be an accomplishment if he does win having as you said never fought at 154 and beating an unbeaten world champion, but I think he will be fine and am not sold him being past prime just yet.

No he isn't.

Being in over his head as I se it would mean he would have slim to none chances which Idon't believe.

Foreman while world class has yet to prove he's really good,yes he impressively beat the shadow of Santos but even past his best Cotto will certainly be better than him.
If Manny Steward can get him back on track and correct his defensive gap up the middle and make him the old Cotto which he says I'm sure he can win.

I think it's a bad style match up for Cotto. The consensus is that Foreman isn't a hard puncher, but that's in the sense of fighting OTHER 154lb fighters. I think Cotto's got some fight left in him, but we can't deny that there are kinks in Cotto's armor at this point in his career. Yuri isn't a phenomenal fighter, but IMO he's got enough to cause Cotto some problems with his constant movement and size and reach advantage.

To me, this is Cotto's fight to win. If he can assert himself and get a good rhythm going, I definitely give him a chance. But I'm goin with my gut on this one and pickin Foreman by UD.

...and I like Cotto too
