By Miguel Cotto

Today I am very happy to announce that my trainer for my December 3rd fight [against Antonio Margarito] in New York will be legendary Cuban boxing trainer and expert Pedro Luis Díaz Benítez.  Pedro Luis is a Doctor in Pedagogical Sciences.  He holds a Master's degree in sports training and a Major in Physical Culture and Sports.  He is also specialized in boxing training's planning and control. He was a professor and investigator for the University of Sports in Cuba.  He has also worked with and trained several Olympic Gold Medalists and professional world champions.

I met Pedro Luis as an amateur several years ago and had the opportunity to share time with him in several international competitions.  I was instantly amazed as to the vast boxing's technique and conditioning knowledge that he transmitted to his fighters.  I feel that together with Phil, Pedro Luis is a perfect fit to bring my best potential for my next fight in December and lead me to victory!

I want to take this opportunity to express my wholehearted gratitude to Emanuel Steward, who I consider a friend and mentor.  Because of calendar conflicts and other matters, we were unable to work together for this next fight.  He is one of the best trainers I have ever met in boxing, and I will be forever appreciative for the two fights we worked together.  We have both kept the doors open to maybe join forces in the future if the circumstances and timing are adequate.

Now I will focus on my training camp!  I feel happy and thrilled as ever to commenced preparing for December.  I will be ready and will win the fight for all of you.

Miguel Cotto cannot win this by brute force alone. He is going to need a game plan. A smart technical game plan. All he had to do is watch the Mosley fight. This is mental and Cotto has to be ready in that aspect and no trainer can give you mental strength to persevere. He can encourage you ...

although IMHO changing trainer is ill-timed at least Cotto took in a good trainer this time around and would not really affect the outcome of the fight, I am still rooting for Miguel to make in 1-1 vs tony...

[QUOTE=sdcluser]The REAL QUESTION is, "IS COTTO MOTIVATED?" Cotto was not impressive with Steward against Mayorga. Got tagged a few times. He needs to be the best aerobic condition for this fight in case Margarito lands a good punch on him. If he is not motivated, the fight is gonna get rea...

The REAL QUESTION is, "IS COTTO MOTIVATED?" Cotto was not impressive with Steward against Mayorga. Got tagged a few times. He needs to be the best aerobic condition for this fight in case Margarito lands a good punch on him. If he is not motivated, the fight is gonna get real interesting. We...

[QUOTE=Fearless]I'm a fan and I'm surprised at this decision. Be real ****ed up if Danny Garcia was asked by Cotto to train him. Even though that's not gonna happen. I was pretty happy at how Cotto changed as a fighter under Stewart's guidance, sort of calmed him from going to war with his ...
