Miguel Cotto Says Emanuel Steward is Here To Stay

By Ruslan Chikov

WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto will continue to retain Emanuel Steward as the head trainer of his team. Cotto was very pleased with the adjustments Steward made to his style which led to the nine round TKO victory over Yuri Foreman at Yankee Stadium on June 5.

"Emanuel is definitely going to remain with our team. He helped me to improve as a boxer. He helped everyone in the [training] camp," Cotto was quoted by Golzka.
