Pacquiao vs Cotto is talk of the town

I do quite a bit of traveling and get to hear a lot of different opinions on a lot of different fighters. In boxing gyms across the country, the topic of the town is without a doubt, Manny Pacquiao vs Miguel Cotto.

Currently, I am visiting Houston, TX. I had a chance to visit with good friend, and world renowned boxing trainer, Ronnie Shields. My stop at Savannah's gym in Houston, TX gave me the opportunity to watch up close and personal, former undisputed lightweight world champion Juan Diaz prepare for his rematch against Paulie Malignaggi.

I had a great opportunity to speak with many different people in the gym that day, including Diaz, and got their thoughts on the big fight between Pacquiao and Cotto. The general consensus was that the outcome of the fight would heavily depend on which fighter sticks to his game-plan.

Boxing legend and manager of Juan Diaz, Willie Savannah, said that, " It all depends on Cotto being able to effectively land those body shots on Pacquiao." Former champion Juan Diaz feels the same way, Diaz said, " Its a matter of styles, if Pacquiao chooses to slug it out with Cotto, and Cotto can land body shots it can be a victory for Cotto. If Pacquiao boxes and uses his speed and turns Cotto, and moves, he will win."

As I walked around the gym that day, the boxing talk of the day was either the Juan Diaz vs Malignaggi rematch or Manny Pacquiao vs Miguel Cotto. Considering I was in Juan Diaz' gym, it was not surprising to hear of the rematch talk. Every boxing event that this writer attends, the talk sooner or later is of Pacquiao vs Cotto.

There are some articles out there that claim that Manny is getting too popular. What does "too popular" mean? Pacquiao has earned his popularity, so what is the fuss about? If people are getting sick of reading and hearing about Manny Pacquiao they are just going to have to get used to it, because he isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Pacquiao like him or not, has earned his status in the boxing world through hard work, dedication, and brilliant fighting in the ring.
