Sparmates : Manny Solid Edge Over Cotto

HOLLYWOOD: The sparmates of the Filipino icon, Manny Pacquiao, give him a solid edge over Cotto.

The California-based Mexican, Urbano Antillon, the currently no. 1-ranked lightweight contender of the WBC who had a record of 26 wins, 1 loss and 19 knockouts had all praised on the Filipino icon, Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao.

Antillon, one of the Pacquiao' sparring partner said that "Manny is one of the hardest workers in the sport". He also added that after months of trading leather with Pacquiao, he expects the rapid-punching, hard-hitting southpaw to dominate the match against Cotto using his vaunted speed.

Although he did not make any predictions about the coming match, Antillon said he feels that Cotto is in for a tough night against Pacquiao.

"Cotto is a great fighter, but he is just a little too slow for Pacquiao", added Antillon.

Pacquiao’s other sparring partners also voiced optimism that the Filipino is headed for a big night in Las Vegas.

The boxing match tagged as the Firepower, a fight between Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao and Miguel 'Anghel' Cotto, of Puerto Rico and currently the WBO welterweight champion will be held this coming 14 of November 2009 at MGM Grand, Nevada, Las Vegas.
