One more day of training here in Tampa on Friday, then world welterweight champion Miguel Cotto and his team will gear up and head to Las Vegas. “We’ve had the perfect camp. Miguel is determined and focused,” said Joe Santiago, Cotto’s chief trainer. “We are about to head out for Las Vegas.” Cotto plans to arrive into Las Vegas at 4 pm on Sunday. He will train daily in Las Vegas, except for Tuesday, Nov. 3 when he will be in Los Angeles for a press workout.
Santiago added that he, Cotto and the team “…do not pay any attention to whatever (Pacquiao trainer) Freddie Roach is saying.”
“We are focused on one person – Pacquiao,” said Santiago. “Roach is trying to play mind games with us, but it’s not working.”
Pacquiao and Cotto will battle in Top Rank’s ‘Firepower’ at the sold out MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday, November 14. Pacquiao and Cotto ‘Firepower’ is promoted by Top Rank, MP Promotions, Cotto Promotions, MGM and Tecate. Pacquiao vs Cotto will be available on HBO Pay Per View.
