Roach: Cotto Will Come in at 166, Knock Geale Out

By Miguel Rivera

According to trainer Freddie Roach, WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto will weigh around 166-pounds by the time he steps in the on Saturday night against former champion Daniel Geale at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Cotto demanded a catch-weight of 157-pounds for the bout and weighed in at 153.6 pounds, which is actually under the junior middleweight limit. Geale squeezed down to the limit of 157-pounds and struggled to do so.

The game plan put together by Roach is to target the body and break it down until Geale goes down for the count.

"It was a calculated weight [that Miguel made]. It was what we expected. Miguel will work very hard to the body of Geale. Miguel will knock Geale out. Miguel will climb to 166-pounds. He had a fabulous preparation. Geale showed that it cost a lot to make the agreed upon weight," Roach told El Vocero.

"He won't be able to get away from Miguel's attack which is going to begin from the first round. This is a very important for fight for us. There are many things out there waiting for us. You will see what I said about Miguel. He's in the best [shape of his career] and he will knock out Geale."

[QUOTE=Isaac Clarke;15762494]Keep his body used to making 154 which he will move back down to eventually.[/QUOTE] Makes sence! I hope Cotto stops the Catchweight-bullsh*t and moves down to 154 again. I see Cotto stopping Geale by battering Geales drained Body.…
