A war of words erupted between junior middleweight Ricardo Mayorga, and Emanuel Steward, who trains WBA champion Miguel Cotto. As Steward began to address the media from the podium, Mayorga tried to cut him off, and the two of them began to trade words for at least ten minutes. Cotto-Mayorga happens on Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, with Showtime pay-per-view carrying the event.
"I don't care how hard you train. You are getting knocked out and it won't take long either. You could take your shirt off. You could get butt-naked on here. You are out of your class. You going to hospital afterwards. The only flag that [Don King] is going to waive afterwards is a white flag. You are getting knocked out from a left hook to the body," Steward said.
