Fandemonium has broken out in Orlando as former three-division world champion and the Pride of Puerto Rico Miguel Cotto has arrived in Orlando to begin his Fight Week activities leading up to his Florida debut as a professional fighter. With all the higher-priced tickets having sold out in advance and fan demand still not sated, the promoters of the event opened up more sections of $25 seats by rearranging television camera set ups. Cotto will be going mano a mano with two-time world title challenger and Top-Five contender Delvin Rodriguez in a 12-round super welterweight battle on Saturday at the home of the Orlando Magic — Amway Center. It will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing.
“We are thrilled with the support Miguel’s fans have shown for this event and we want to do everything we can to make it accessible to them,” said Héctor Soto, Vice President of Miguel Cotto Promotions. “A big thank you from Miguel Cotto Promotions and Top Rank goes to HBO and Amway Center for working with us in opening more sections. The atmosphere on Saturday night will be electric.”
