By Rey Colon

Puerto Rican super featherweight  Luis 'The Craftsman' Cruz (19-1, 15KOs), who lost in his last fight to undefeated Mexican Juan Carlos Burgos on November 12, has hired Cuban trainer Pedro Luis Diaz, who replaces Puerto Rican coach Freddie Trinidad. Cruz hopes to return in mid to late April.

Pedro Diaz is the current trainer of WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto, also of Puerto Rico. Cotto first hired Diaz to replace Emanuel Steward, as the Puerto Rican boxer prepared for last December's rematch with Antonio Margarito.

"We have been working hard and we need to regain ground. My career is not defined by my last fight. Miguel Cotto Promotions and Top Rank are confident in my abilities and they know that I can give more. They did not like the last performance and therefore we have made several adjustments. Next Monday I leave for Orlando to start my camp with my new trainer Pedro Luis Diaz. We hope these changes will contribute more to my career and I can move forward to achieve the goal of every boxer - to be world champion," he said.

good move by cruz but I don't think its a good idea for cotto to have training camp at the same time being they have the same trainer. cotto needs pedro 100%

Awful performance against Burgos. He fought almost the whole fight completely open with his arms down. Good move changing trainer but he has to make serious adjustments if he wants to reivindicate. Juanma Lopez and Rocky Martinez should do the same. Both are good fighters with excellent potencial...
