Just saw Tony-Cotto and Pac-DelaHoya...my opinion totally backflipped....
A few notes:
Note: After looking at the weigh-in tonight, I thought Pac would get literally smashed to bits. But after watching the two fights above, I'm feeling more confident in Pac despite the large weight disadvantage. OK, I'm off to watch more of their fights.

Cotto cannot fight going backwards. Cotto did not back up because he was stupid, it was because of Marg's pressure. De La hoya was weight drained and DLH is not a pressure fighter, he dosnt push the action liek Marg does. Pac man also lieks to bang with bigger guys to test their power. Margs like to move forward, same with Pacquaio. Marg have the best chance to put pacman on the ropes and do work.

I can't say that Cotto fought stupid in the Margarito fight ealry on, as he won most of the early rounds. I would agree that he should have stayed off the ropes more, but that is how he fights often, he moves and picks his shots when to fire.

Cotto fought margs backing up because he has no inside game, he cant clinch so he tries to keep the fight at arms length
If he cant dictate the tempo of a fight, he backpedals, sapping his already questionable stamina

If Manny fights off the ropes, he loses. If he keeps it in the middle and circling, he wins.
