MANILA – While members of Team Pacquiao declared with certainty that the pound-for-pound king will knock out Miguel Cotto on November 14, Manny Pacquiao refused to predict the outcome of his “Firepower” bout.
“Mahirap magsabi nang tapos eh. Di naman natin alam anong mangyayari. Dasal lang tayo sa Lord. Ano man mangyari, idasal na lang natin kung mapabilis o mapaaga or… matapos yung round. Siya lang nakakaalam eh,” Pacquiao told abs-cbnNEWS.com.
He added: “Basta sa akin, training lang ako nang husto, dasal at pagkatiwala sa kaniya pagdating sa ring.”
Coach Freddie Roach said Pacquiao will KO Cotto in the first round. Conditioning coach Alex Ariza noted that Pacquiao can score a KO while adviser Mike Koncz said the KO would probably come in the later rounds.
