Freddie Roach Confident: Cotto Can Hang With Golovkin

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Hall of fame trainer Freddie Roach is pretty confident that his fighter, WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 31KOs), can deal with WBA/IBO champion Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs). Golovkin is set to defend his titles on July 26th against former champion Daniel Geale.

Roach says he never watched Golovkin fight and doesn't appear to be too intimidated by his deadly reputation. Cotto made a big splash on the middleweight division on Saturday night, when he blew out lineal champion Sergio Martinez to capture the WBC crown in ten rounds.

"I hear a lot of good things about Golovkin. I hear he's a great puncher. I hear he's a great fighter, but you know I've never seen him fight and I'm a fight fan. What was his last fight on UHF or something like that? C'mon, I think we can hang with a guy like that. I hear he's good. I know HBO is interested in him and they signed him to a multi-fight deal, so he must be impressing somebody, but again I've never seen him fight so I can't give you a real good answer," Roach told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=elgu]Notice how Roach said "hang" and not "beat".[/QUOTE] Yea but hang with him for 12 rounds and you might just win a decision.

[QUOTE=Slyboots]I don't ever see that happening. It's big mega fights from here on out, not high risk low reward type of fights.[/QUOTE] Yeah, i can see your way of thinking. Still, wouldn't it be awesome to see his avenge all his losses, if he could accomplish that? Just wishful thinking, but y...

I would like to see both guys trade left hooks to the body and see who wilts first.

[QUOTE=Hougigo]I kind of hope they fight now so I can bump this later[/QUOTE] I can't believe people think Cotto can beat Golovkin It was a great win and all but Sergio looked shot to **** to say at least...
