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.
