  Cotto & Ali Go Head To Head At The Garden  
By Damon “LatinBox” Gonzalez
New York, N.Y. - Four-division world champion Miguel Cotto (41-5, 33 KOs) hosted a media workout at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles ahead of the final fight of the future Hall of Famer's career, which will be against the hard hitting Brooklyn, New York puncher Sadam "World Kid" Ali (25-1, 14 KOs) for most boxing critics many will say that Ali is way over his head, I clearly believe this is not the case for Ali. I think this is the fight Ali needs to put him over the hump in terms of earning more respect from fans all over the world and certainly getting a big payday fights. Ali from the bell we predict will start off early on the veteran Cotto, no question Ali is younger but is he faster, quicker then Cotto.
