Cotto v. Branco.


#1

Pigging backying off the Lacy v. Calzagha thread, did anyone see this match?

Cotto just completely destroyed Branco. His head was bleeding (from an incidental head butt), but eye was swollen, his jaw looked like it was broken...

Cotto was pounding Branco's arms all night long and finally Branco called it quits...

Very solid fight for Cotto who still looked fresh.

Weird thing is, branco looks a lot bigger then cotto, but as it showed, apparently does not have the same type of striking power. Branco is used to different european styles im sure, and although he is a good fighter the US oppenents are completely different and probably on a higher level. None the less I enjoy watching him fight.
