Pacquiao was allowing Cotto to corner and punch him. And also Pacquiao took well some BIG SHOTS. His toughness is underrated. Just like what Shawn Porter said, "People don't really know how tough Pacquiao is.". Well, Pacquiao showed us tonight. He took some vicious shots to the body... to the head... And even his ear was "ringing" during the post fight interview.
I thought the key to winning was Cotto getting Pac on the ropes but Manny looked surprisingly comfortable on the ropes. While he was getting hit was some hard shots, he never looked in trouble. When I saw that, I just thought, "Oh shit. We're fucked." Cotto could have won the fight by controlling the ring with the jab. Instead he tried to outgun him and got blasted.
