Miguel Cotto is "Not Impressed By Manny Pacquiao"

By Mark Vester

WBO welterweight champion Miguel Cotto is not exactly impressed with the last couple of performances by Manny Pacquiao, regarded by many as the best fighter in the sport. The two fighters are being matched by Top Rank, with the fight taking place on November 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Cotto plans to return to training camp in three weeks to begin the necessary work for the fight with Pacquiao. Cotto is not concerned about the catch-weight of 145-pounds.

"It doesn't matter if it takes place at 145 pounds. That was the weight we had said from the start. I will go up in weight by eight to ten pounds [by fight night]. We are waiting for confirmation that the fight [is done]. Nothing impresses me. He has two arms and so do I. Things in life happen when they have to happen," Cotto said to Primera Hora

Cotto suffered a serious cut during his recent decision win against Joshua Clottey. He needed 21 stitches above his left eye. He says the cut is healing well and should not present a problem.

"The injury is already practically healed. We are resting and then we are going to train for a good fight.  The people knows how Miguel Cotto works," Cotto said.

[QUOTE=formarkiz;5569182]Everyone knows Cotto's one major flaw is his defense. As much as a lot of Cotto fans probably don't want to admit, Mayweather Sr. is probably the best defense trainer in the biz. His personality is another thing, but he…

[QUOTE=Pullcounter;5574093]the difference will be that cotto will be fighting a midget this time instead of a huge WW.[/QUOTE] Do you think Cotto would massacre Mayweather? Floyd's fight night weight is also around 147, so presumably he is a midget as…

[QUOTE=Iceta;5573605]A lot of the Cotto fans on here view you as one of the biggest Cotto detractors even though you don't ruthlessly bash him like someone like Flawless does. Lol.[/QUOTE] I just call it like I see it. [QUOTE] What…
