Who will win between Miguel Cotta and Yoshihiro Kamegai?
SunSport thinks this could well be a monster of a battle. Miguel Cotto has noticeably slowed up in his recent fights as his age catches up on him at 36.
Kamegai isn’t much younger at 34, but he has more speed and a bigger reach.
However, Cotto has said he will retire on December 31, so appears to have already factored in another fight.
For that reason we are going with a late KO for the Puerto Rican power puncher Cotto.
