1. In the first fight Cotto elected to show off and use his legs early backing up and boxing, it worked but he paid a price. He allowed Margarito to get maximum leverage and power on his shots and lost power and opportunities to work the body on his own.
2. If he's smart Tony will keep that glove peeled to the right side of his face, hi guard will give Cotto a better target to work his left to the body.
This wont be an easy fight for Cotto unless Tony is affected much more than I think he will be from the Pacquiao beating. Cotto will have to be focused form beginning to end and willing to walk thru some fire from the the Plaster terminator.
Cotto is a much harder puncher than Williams, he will have to make Margarito think about the jab as Tony attempts to move in. Cotto also needs to get his combos and right hand working in this fight.

If he targets Tony's bad eye with that powerful jab, Tony will get distracted big time and like the above poster said, allow Cotto to get some body shots in, seeing as how that eye needs to be protected.

Cotto won't be able to work the body unless he adds to his body punching repetoire.
Margarito tucked his elbows into his sides to pick off hooks to the body with his elbows. That's why Cotto didn't work the body, cause Margarito prepared for it. Cotto needs to develop a straight right to the center of the stomach, like Manny has with his left hand, otherwise Margarito will do the same thing and Cotto won't be able to work the body again.

Cotto isn't capable of doing that. He needs to box well, stay off the ropes, be in great shape and clinch when he needs to.

Terrible gameplan, sorry. Only reason Paul barely held on is because of his ridiculous activity and chin.

That's about the silliest thing I've ever heard. The Punisher threw about a 1000 punches literally, he had a granite chin & was actually bigger than Margarito. Cotto is smaller, chinny & suspect stamina.
Cotto just has to use that jab, move laterally instead of backing straight up & tie Margarito up in close.

What, throw a shit load of punches whilst blocking all of your opponents punches with your face?

Another thread that takes the retarded cake. No shortage of these lately.
"All this 5'6 guy needs to do is fight like he is 6'2 and throw twice as many punches as he ever has".
While he is at it maybe he should fight left handed and learn to slap his opponent instead of hitting him with a closed fist.
