Miguel Cotto Not Paying Attention To Trout's Warnings

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30KOs) is not concerned with the warnings coming from WBA "regular" junior middleweight champion Austin Trout, who says "Cotto's time is now over." Cotto will challenge Trout for his championship on December 1st at Madison Square Garden in New York City. It will be Cotto's first appearance in the ring since the May decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Cotto, currently training with Cuban coach Pedro Diaz in Big Bear, predicts that his experience, and his skill level, will be the difference in December.

"[My trainer Pedro Diaz] is set apart [from the rest] because he is always ready when we start full training camp. There's no time for improvisation, no time to failure...[no time] for errors. Pedro is a student of boxing, and he showed [his level] with these two [prior camps] against Margarito and Mayweather," said Cotto to Paul Maldonado.

"We are not worried at all [about what Trout says]. If what he said is true, why is he not one of the best fighters in the world? I'm here because I know what I am capable of doing. I know what I'm going to do on the first of December and whatever Austin says I do not care about."

[QUOTE=radioraheem;12636622]LOL! I thought I was the only one that caught that disturbing event. And didn't just kiss, but hovered right in his face as if that were his wife. Haha[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=mike gonzalez;12636452]If Miguel Cotto didn't care what Trout says about…
