Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs Miguel Cotto – December 4, 2010
Miguel Cotto (35-2-0) is arising off a TKO win over Yuri Foreman in June for the WBA Light Middle Weight Title.
I really liked the way Miguel Cotto looked in the Yuri Foreman fight, it was just sad the way the fight ended. I think we could of seen more of what Cotto can do at light middle weight.
Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (41-0-1-1) is the son of legendary Mexican boxer Julio Cesar Chavez. Chavez Jr. most recently defeated John Duddy from Ireland in a persuading unanimous decision for the WBC Silver Middleweight Title.
Many say Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has been sheltered too much throughout his boxing career and protected from fights that could of resulted in loses for him. He has never fought anyone of Cotto’s caliber and this will be his first true boxing fight. We will finally truly see what he is capable of come December 4th.
For this fight I am picking Miguel Cotto for the win.
