Cotto has new trainer!

By Gabriel F. Cordero

WBO welterweight world champion Miguel Cotto has announced that Puerto Rican countryman Joe Santiago is his new trainer. The change came after Cotto parted ways with his uncle and longtime trainer Evangelist Cotto in a highly publicized incident last week. Santiago and Cotto began training this week in Tampa, Florida for the first defense of his title against IBF champ Joshua Clottey on June 13 in Madison Square Garden. Santiago has been with Cotto for a number of years as a nutritionist. Evangelista Cotto had been with Miguel for nearly 16 years.
