Miguel Cotto: Roach Brings Confidence Back To Me

NEW YORK - WBC and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Champion Miguel Cotto feels very confident ahead of his fight against former Two-Time World Champion Daniel Geale on June 6th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Cotto vs. Geale is a 12-round fight for Cotto's WBC and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Championships, and it will be televised live on HBO. The fight, which is presented by Roc Nation Sports and Miguel Cotto Promotions in association with Gary Shaw Productions, will be the official kick-off event of the 2015 National Puerto Rican Day Parade Week and is sponsored by Cerveza Tecate, Jaybird, TapouT, Tequila Cazadores, Venue Kings and Nüe Resource.

In addition to the great action inside the ring, the event will feature several notable Roc Nation touches that will further serve spectators with an enhanced fan experience, including Roc Nation and Grammy nominated artist Big Sean taking to the ring for a special performance prior to the main event.

"Freddie brings the confidence back to Miguel. He comes every day no matter what he feels and gives his best to me. When you have this kind of person in front of you giving you his best and making sure that you are going to do your best, the only way you can pay him back is bringing your best too. We only talk about boxing when we are in the gym. He's my trainer there, but as soon as we finish our training session, he's my friend," Cotto said.

The event will be hosted by notable emcee "The Voice of New York" Angie Martinez and will also feature hit master DJ Lobo who will serve alongside Martinez throughout the night.

Cotto believes that as middleweight champion he can beat any Jr middleweight or welterweight out there. Just don't require him to fight a REAL middleweight unless he has to bad knees and is just plain shot or comes in weight…

...yeah so much confidence he needs catchweights to defend his Middleweight titles, and he's running from his mandatory, GGG, like a chicken from the hatchet. Freddie must be inspiring.
