And too cunning as well. He was wary of the Cotto left jab from a distance so what he did was lure the Puerto Rican to move in with power shots w/c he deflected with his superior hand/foot speed and punches coming from all angles. A big risk but it worked.
Everyone's now clamoring for a showdown w/ Diva Floydie who wants a 65% share of the ppv revenue.
Exactly right, and as soon as Cotto went away from the jab, there was going to only be one winner. As soon as Cotto started winding up on his punches, Manny had already landed flush shots of his own. Manny can throw punches at such angles that no-one can see them, and he is so pinpoint and quick with his punches and how he gets in position to throw them, he can seem like he is not doing much, and them BANG. But it was definitely a fun and interesting fight for the fans, more exciting than most other fights I have seen recently.
I really want to see Floyd fight Mosley first, and then fight Manny. Floyd needs to fight someone who will truly give him a match, and one where he isn't so clearly overmatching his opponent.
