Miguel Cotto: Everybody who knows Miguel Cotto knows that I don’t pick easy fights. He was the next in line and I’m ready for him. We’re going to see what happens on Saturday.
He’s fought in Panama and in Mexico but next Saturday he’s going to be in New York with me at Madison Square Garden. It’s my home and there is nothing is going to be equal to that. Madison Square Garden is a special venue and he’ll figure that out when he gets in there.
Austin Trout: There are 2 sides of Austin Trout: Austin Trout the fan and Austin Trout the fighter. I love to watch him fight but in the back of my mind I think that I can beat him. When I’m daydreaming about beating up somebody in front of a large crowd its one of those guys that I’m a fan of and he happens to be one of them.
My past experiences have not been on this level but practice makes perfect. The crowd can only do one thing and that’s make noise. It doesn’t help him punch harder or move faster.
