Cotto, Pacquiao Sparring in Camp is Ruled Out

By Miguel Rivera

According to Bryan Perez, Executive Director of Miguel Cotto Promotions, there wasn't and won't be any sparring between Miguel Cotto and Manny Pacquiao. Cotto arrived a few weeks early to start his training camp at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California. Cotto faces WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez on June 7th. Pacquiao returns this coming Saturday against WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Last week Roach hinted that Pacquiao and Cotto would spar for a few rounds in the ring. Perez says that won't happen because it doesn't do anything for Pacquiao.

"Manny is a southpaw and Miguel does not have the style of Bradley. That wouldn't do anything to help Manny. But our team is giving them support," Perez said to Carlos Narvaez.

It would be beneficial for both of them, regardless of height and weight. Cotto's physical stature is much like Bradley's, in regards to height. And Cotto has very good boxing ability along with speed. Why not?? Pacquiao is a fast…

It was more beneficial to Cotto than it was to Pac
