Cotto's Coach Says Big Bear Training Was Beneficial

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former three division champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30KOs) made a few adjustments during his training camp for the upcoming fight with WBA "regular" 154-pound champion Austin Trout (25-0, 14KOs). Cotto will challenge Trout for the title on December 1 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Cotto is in the final stage of his training camp. He started in Puerto Rico and then for the first time in his career he spent a few weeks at the high altitude location of Big Bear, California. Cotto is now training in Orlando, Florida. Trainer Pedro Diaz says the experience of training at Big Bear was very beneficial for Cotto.

"Miguel performed well and achieved the goals we had outlined. [Miguel] adopted very well. His physical and functional performance was extraordinary. We achieved what we wanted. I do not know if in the future we will go there again, but the results were very good," Diaz told Carlos Gonzalez.

"We've studied Trout a lot, but that does not indicate that we will achieve the victory right now. We must continue outlining the tactical plan to be ready."

Yeah, it doesn't seem like something Team Cotto would say.
