Free Cotto workout in NYC!

Three-time world champion Miguel Cotto (33-1, 27 KOs) will be holding a free public workout in the Bronx today beginning at 2:30 P.M. ET, in an outdoor ring at 152nd and Wales Streets. Cotto, who is in his final week of training, will be defending his WBO welterweight title against Joshua Clottey (35-2, 21 KOs) this Saturday (June 13) at Madison Square Garden. This marks the fourth time in the past five years that Cotto, a two-division world titleist, will headline at the “Mecca of Boxing” on the eve of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade. Clottey returns to the ring after defeating Brooklyn brawler Zab Judah and winning the IBF welterweight title. The card will also feature undefeated WBO junior flyweight champion Ivan Calderon (32-0, 6 KOs) defending his title against No. 1 contender and mandatory challenger Rodel Mayol (25-3, 19 KOs). Over 15,000 seats have been sold. Remaining tickets to Cotto vs. Clottey, priced at $500, $300, $200, $100 and $50, can be purchased at the Garden Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets or online at www.thegarden.com.
