Should Pacquiao Fight Cotto on 147 lbs?

Pacquiao have set a record in boxing, winning 4 linneal champioships. The only one in history. If he fights Cotto on 147 lbs, we will be making a step towards solidifying his position as the greatest boxer in history. If they fight in a 145 lbs catch weight, there will be a little difference. Cotto fought Clottey at 147 lbs but weighed in only 146 lbs during the weigh in. 145 lbs will not make a difference for cotto.

After watching the Clottey-Cotto fight,i could see a lot of holes in Cottos game that Pacquiao could take advantage of. Pacquiao is way to fast for Cotto and i honestly believe has more power than him. I dont think the weight would be an issue but i think that the Pacquiao camp is trying to squeeze out every bit of advantage they can get by asking Cotto to fight at 144 or 145. The only problem I see with team Pacquiao asking Cotto to lose so much weight is people might see him as a guy who drains out his opponent even before the fight begins. But in my opinion, I think Pacquiao can win at 147...

I think cotto is slower compare to other fighters face paquiao. Even 147 paquiao will beat cotto..some says Oscar is to old and dehydrated when he fought, I dont think so, Beside Paquiao is to fast and strong against oscar..PAquiao cotto fight 8-9 rounds is enough!!!Mark my word
