Exclamation OT: Cotto-Mosley Update

Quote:
Cotto-Mosley at the Garden!
Wednesday, August 15 2007


Billed as "Fast & Furious," the rumble between undefeated WBA world welterweight champion Miguel Cotto and four-time world champion Sugar Shane Mosley will take place on November 10 at the "Mecca of Boxing," Madison Square Garden in New York City. The 12-round world welterweight title fight will be produced and distributed live on HBO Pay-Per-View.

thoughts? predictions?

i'll start, I think it will be a very very close fight. i can't see cotto losing decisively because well, he's never lost. But Sugar Shane just came off some impressive performances and looks like he's more ready for this fight than any other fight in his career. He is one of the quickest if not the quickest fighter in the sport, but a lot of people woud argue PBF is the fastest. Anyways, Cotto is no joke, this guy fights the same in round 12 than he does in round 1. Never stops punching, and his punches have a lot of power. Pretty good chin too, Mosley will have to be on top of his game if he wants to win this fight. But right now it's hard to pick either of them, we'll just have to wait and see.

I've got Cotto in an 8th round KO, but it's going to be very fun to watch

Ill take a unamious decision for Mosley. Hes a better boxer than cotto and i like his speed advantage.

Cotto in 6 by K.O.

Mosely's speed is a shadow of what it once was. He doesn't do well with big hitters.

Good matchup of contrasting styles. Mosley will give Cotto fits, however, if Cotto can utilize a good jab and be effective w/ his trademark body work, he should be able to punish Shane over the 2nd half of the fight and stay undefeated.
