Me and my buddys were talking about this fight the other day and im actually going with delvin by stoppage. He throws a lot of stinging straight precise shots that cut opponents and Cottos face doesn't hold up. And honestly cotto is going in with a new trainer (which I didn't think he needed) going into a whole different camp with a guy who already is training someone else (pac and ortiz) in fights not too far apart.
Like I said I'm going with delvin with the upset by stoppage
unfortunately...i'm thinking the same.
rodriguez is a decent fighter who is on the upside. cotto switching trainers...and working with freddie who will be busy with shiming, pac, provodnikov and ortiz(?) is a heavy load. he's not going to get the attention he needs...and he's definitely not going to get the science he needs to get back to. it's sad imo because he can beat this guy. he's just not smart enough to realize he's making a mistake. honestly...i don't think diaz is that great a trainer either...but he was decent for cotto.
