Manny Pacquiao, the legendary Filipino boxer, has faced numerous formidable opponents throughout his career, including Floyd Mayweather and Oscar De La Hoya. However, there is one fighter who left a lasting impact on Pacquiao.

Unforgettable Showdown

In 2009, Pacquiao went head-to-head with Miguel Cotto in a highly anticipated match. Despite ultimately emerging victorious, Pacquiao admitted that Cotto hit him the hardest out of all his opponents.

Pacquiao recalled his experience, saying, "I can still feel some of those punches he threw at me. Staying on the ropes is not the best place to be when you are fighting him. He’s also accurate. He’s incredible."

A Dominant Performance

During the fight, Pacquiao showcased his skills by dropping Cotto in both the third and fourth rounds. Although he emerged triumphant, the impact of Cotto's punches lingered with Pacquiao long after the fight concluded.
