Cotto More Serious Than Ever

By Damon “Latinbox” Gonzalez



The WBO Welterweight champion Miguel Cotto (33-1, 27) looks on with new trainer Jose Santiago at the Fight Factory training facilities in Tampa, Florida. It has been three weeks into an what might say a very intensive camp, Team Cotto is business as usual, This has been the most focused Cotto yet, Trainer Jose Santiago working very closely with Cotto in preparation for his battle with IBF Champion Joshua “Grand Master” Clottey (35-2, 20 KO’s) from Madison Square Garden in New York City, live on HBO PPV.



Cotto very pleased with the opportunity to take his camp to Florida, Has been able to focus specifically on just doing his job, He appears to be very relaxed here and extremely focused on Clottey. Three weeks in Cotto has had some intensive sparring work, Cotto very pleased about continuing his tradition with fighting the night before New York City Puerto Rican Parade. Team Cotto has not encountered any distractions what so ever in camp.



There is certainly a connection between the Champion and trainer Jose Santiago in my observations they appear to work very well with each other there is a positive vibe in the air at Cotto camp which clearly gives a great advantage to Cotto for his great work in preparing for June 13th.
