hey Irish or golden gloves, just wondering…How is it that Manny was able to handle Cottos power, but get rattled by Marquez? btoh fighters hit him w/clean powerful shots. does Marquez hit harder than cotto? Do steroids even help a fighters chin? how about HGH? I thought about that after re-watching the cotto/pac fight. would like to hear wut u guys think about that.
I also agree w/ u Irish, Manny doesnt come off as a guy who would juice, but the question above has been in my head
No, it wouldn’t help with your chin. It’s really something you’re born with. You can do things to help it, but ultimately if you’ve a glass jaw you better be able to duck and move.
Pacquiao was taking much more punishment from Marquez, he fought a much different fight with Cotto. Pacquiao got his head snapped back by one of Cotto’s jab, but he effectively seemed to elude his power until Cotto started to fade.
Pacquiao has a pretty good chin too.[/quote]
Right. Steroids wouldn’t help with your chin at all.
And on top of that, Cotto definitely rattled him a couple times, once in like the fifth as I recall he caught Manny flush. Manny was getting caught by those constantly when he fought Marquez… he was eluding Cotto’s power shots very well.
Had he been caught by Cotto the same number of times he was caught by Marquez, he still wouldn’t be awake yet.
