Steward: Cotto-Foreman 50/50

While at Yankee Stadium earlier this week, chief trainer Manny Steward told Miguel Cotto “…we’re in a tough, difficult, challenging fight against Yuri Foreman. “I now know why Manny Pacquiao and his team passed on Yuri,” Steward told boxing press before Cotto went to the batting cage at Yankee Stadium. “We’re looking at a 50-50 fight going in. Yuri is a good, hard-working champion.” Steward added he has been working on Cotto’s balance and has tweaked punching angles for “more accurate, harder direct hits.” Steward added “…Cotto knows how important this fight is for his career.”
