I think we'll have to wait until saturday.
Manny is the better overall fighter, he is faster of hand and foot, he has better power, reflexes and killer instinct.
Cotto is better as a boxer.
Now, Manny would normally be the favorite, but he is not the same fighter he used to be.
In my opinion, he looked really bad in his latest bout.
Among other things, Bradley had a broken foot, hence a limited mobility for most of the fight. A prime Pacman would have probably Ko'ed most opponents in such circumstances.
In other words, I think Pac wins, unless he is more shot than Cotto is.

Cotto has the tools but his trainer has him fighting so one dimensional that he lacks the variety to mix things up and make things interesting.
I personally think that Buddy McGirt would change Cotto for the better. What he did with Tarver's style and career would ultimately work well with Cotto's style and approach to the science.
Buddy would put an emphasis on fundamentals and better use and range of weapons. If Cotto could get back to a stick and jab approach and not cling to the stand and trade method I think he'd be back in the running in no time.
