Manny “Pac-Man” Pacquiao defeats Miguel Cotto for the WBO Welterweight Crown. Funny, EA predicted this already with their simulation video below…. The simulation outcome saw Pacquiao get the decision over Cotto through 12 Rounds 118-109. The real fight on Saturday, November 14th was stopped in the 12th after two knockdowns to Cotto during the fight left his face a bloody mess. Another successful prediction made by EA, shows how accurate their data collection has been over the years.
There’s no doubt Pac-Man was going to defeat Cotto but there were some doubters out there. Cotto was too big for Pacquiao. Miguel Cotto now faces his 2nd lost within the last 2 years. While Manny Pacquiao has seen impressive victories over Ricky Hatton, Oscar De La Hoya and now Miguel Cotto, he will pursue Floyd Mayweather next. He’s now considered one of the best! Congrats to the Filipino Fighter!
The simulation was conducted using Fight Night Round 4’s all-new AI (Artificial Intelligence) system. Dubbed R.E.A.L (Record, Evaluate, Adapt, Learn) AI, the system re-creates each fighter’s ring strategies in the game based on their real life counterparts. Built with adaptive logic, the system triggers fighters to change their tactics based on their success, or failure, throughout the course of a bout.
