Roach is Confident That Miguel Cotto Will Knock Kamegai Out

By Steve Kim

On August 26th, former four division champion Miguel Cotto will be facing Yoshihiro Kamegai at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Cotto (40-5, 33 KO's) says this will be his last year in the sport of boxing and in the Japanese boxer he's facing a durable and rugged opponent. The contest is Cotto's first since suffering a twelve round decision loss to Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in November 2015.

"He's a tough, tough guy," said Freddie Roach, who trains Cotto. "Thing is, I think Miguel should knock him out somewhere along the way but up till that point it will be really tough. He'll be in his face all night."

The contest will also be Cotto's first since splitting with promoter Roc Nation Sports earlier this year. Cotto is now working with promoter Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions, who stage the card at StubHub.

Kamegai (27-3-2, 24 KOs) has battled the likes of Robert Guerrero, Jesus Soto-Karass (twice), Johan Perez and Alfonso Gomez during his career. He's tougher than he is talented but the type of foe that should at the very least challenge Cotto physically with his conditioning and grit.

"It would be an issue but Miguel's in great shape and it wont be an  issue because he wont get tired, this guy will not break us down. We'll break him down and we'll knock him out at some point along the way," promised Roach.

Cotto-Kamegai will be televised by HBO and has a co-featured that pits WBC super bantamweight champion, Rey Vergas against Ronnie Rios.
