Miguel Cotto: I'm Ready To Be Faster, Stronger, Tougher
By Osman Rodriguez
WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (37-2, 30KOs) is not worried about the speed of Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0, 26KOs). He says its not the first time that he's faced a a fighter who most believed to be faster, citing victories over multi-division beltholders Zab Judah and Shane Mosley.
Cotto says he trained for speed, strength and toughness and believes he's ready to match Mayweather in every category.
"If look at back at 2007, that fight with Shane Mosley, everybody said his strength was his quickness against me. I feel prepared enough to be quicker than Mayweather, to be tougher than Mayweather and strength, to be more stronger than Mayweather," Cotto said.
Cotto claims to be a reinvented fighter. He says the 2008 TKO loss to Antonio Margarito was a career crippling event for him. Stopping Margarito in the tenth round of last year's rematch has given him several items that he claims he was missing.
"[Margarito] took away a lot of good things from me. Like confidence in myself, like being anxious to get in the gym, to get in my work, to put myself in my work. And all the trust in myself, he took away from me. After the victory on December 3rd, it all came back to me and I feel better since day 1 of the training camp," Cotto said.

I really believe the victory over margarito was a big reboost for Cotto. It might not be enough to beat a guy like Mayweather though. I think it will be an exciting fight with Cotto having his moments though. I…Comment by iRealChamp on 05-04-2012
