Cotto set to join Pacquiao's camp in the Philippines?

Sources close to the situation have revealed that Miguel Cotto is set to join Manny Pacquiao in General Santos City, Philippines next week ahead of each man’s respective pay per view clashes in the coming months.

Pacquiao faces off with Tim Bradley in a crucial rematch on April 12 in Las Vegas while Cotto looks to be all but locked in for an intriguing showdown with Sergio Martinez on June 7.

Not only will Cotto be training alongside Pacquiao, but it appears that he will likely be sparring with him to help him prepare for Bradley as well. Pacquiao also has some similarities to Martinez given each man’s awkward southpaw style.

“Cotto is coming next week,” our source affirmed following early rumors of Cotto joining the camp. Monday appears to be the target date for the Puerto Rican star’s arrival.

Expect much more from camp Pacquiao in the coming weeks.

This makes perfect sense..Pacquaio sparring with Cotto forces him to think and practice setting up shots and for Cotto it helps him to time his shots better. If Pacquaio can take Cotto's shots at 154 plus he's fine to go…
