Soto, Jacobs expect a battle

_coz7947The undercard press conference for Saturday night’s Pacquiao vs. Hatton card was staged today at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. In the co-main event, Humberto Soto (47-7-2, 30 KOs), of Los Mochis, Mexico, will defend his WBC super featherweight belt against Quebec, Canada’s Benoit Gaudet (20-1, 7 KOs). Gaudet said he’d be bringing the belt back to “the place where snow falls from the sky.” Soto acknowledged Gaudet’s boxing skills, but “hopes he’ll fight me Saturday night.”
