THE PUERTO RICAN MIGUEL COTTO
Last Friday Miguel Cotto told to the Bulletin that the duel between Manny Pacquiao and Joshua Clottey will be very tough for the both of them. He cites the Filipino’s quick speed and the Punching power and the Ghanaian’s advantage in size and strength will be decisive factors in determining who win on March 13, at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.
With an interview facilitated by Bryan Perez, Cotto said that “Clottey keeps his hands up all the time and that’s going to help him against Manny’s quickness.”
Cotto has drawn a conclusion after what he had observe in his past fights with Clottey and Pacquiao’s.
“Joshua Clottey is physically stronger and bigger but Manny Pacquiao hits harder,” said Cotto, who is still hurting from the sudden death of his father Miguel Sr. earlier in the year.
“I am moving on with my life but still no boxing for me.”
However, Miguel Cotto, is heading to New York next week for his promotional outfit Top Rank, in which he is planning to fight on June 12 against Yuri Foreman in New York.
Meanwhile, Clottey told the US website East Side Boxing just before he flew back to New York from Accra that “I really want to prove my point in this fight; to prove the whole world that I am the best.”
Clottey plays soccer when he is not training for a fight and so with that he maintained his in terrific shape and according to his manager Vinny Scolpino, he is now back in the rough Bronx section of New York for his excessive training.
