Cotto To Start Camp Soon, Mayweather-Cotto Tour Info

By Rey Colon

The promotional tour for the mega-fight between Miguel Cotto, the junior middleweight champion of the WBA, and undefeated pound-for-pound boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., will begin in late February and finish up in the first week of March. The tour will impact the cities of Orlando, San Juan, New York and Los Angeles - without ruling out a visit to Mexico. The fight takes place on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, Cotto (37-2, 30 KO's) revealed to Super Exclusivo, that he plans to start his training camp in Puerto Rico in mid-February. Cotto will once again train under the supervision of Pedro Luis Diaz of Cuba. Diaz prepared him for December's rematch with Antonio Margarito, which Cotto won by TKO.

After his initial start in Puerto Rico, Cotto will move his training camp to Orlando, Florida. Cotto will remain in Orlando until a week before the fight, and then he'll travel to Las Vegas for fight week obligations.
