N matter what happens tonight I think this is a fight that should happen. They have never really been in the same weight division for this to become relevant but there is an opening for this fight to happen no matter what goes down tonight. It's a real interesting fight and I'd love to see how it went down. i really hope this happens.

Even though I really like both fighters, I wouldn't want to see this. Marquez just isn't cut out for 147 at all in my opinion. We saw that vs Mayweather and though he beat Pacquiao, Manny is not a true welterweight and the styles factor was more predominant in their fight.

Cotto though has always been a real welterweight in size and strength and add in his ability as a fighter, it would all just add up in favour of him for me. Cotto by KO if it were to happen
If Cotto could make 147 I'd still pick JMM, all out aggression isn't going to get him anywhere.
That's a pretty simplistic way of looking at Cotto as a fighter in all honesty. He's not just a swarmer, he's a very skilled and thoughtful fighter.
