Pacquiao's Dominating Performance Over Cotto

By: Sam Cruz Jr.

This past weekend I couldn't help but be in awe of the totally dominating performance of Manny Pacquiao. I for one thought Cotto was going to pull off a upset and win the fight; But as the fight went on, it was clear that Pacquiao was truly the faster and stronger fighter. Especially in the 4th round when Cotto was dominating the round til a short, yet powerful left hook sent Cotto to mat thus demoralizing and I think ending Cotto's chances of an upset.Pacquiao truly showed why he is the pound for pound champion. As for Cotto, one thing cannot be taken from him. He has the heart and chin of a champion. Tho he took a brutal and demoralizing beating, he answered the bell as a true champion and did not quit. As this fight came and went, there is one fight that all fight fans want and deserve, Pacquaio VS. Mayweather! A fight that truly should be one of the greatest fights of our lifetime. Lets hope that both parties can come together on a agreement and make it happen.
