Turmoil in Cotto camp!

By Gerardo Avila

According to all local newspapers, Miguel Cotto got into a fight with trainer/uncle Evangelista Cotto after a difference of opinion concerning Miguel’s training. It was reported that at approximately 3:00 P.M. local time Miguel and his trainer got into a heated discussion with regards to training strategies, which caused Miguel to fire his uncle. Allegedly Evangelista attacked Miguel and Cotto answered back with shots of his own. The fight first started at Bairoa Gym where the Cotto prepares for all his fights but the dispute continued in Miguel’s house in Caguas, Puerto Rico. Police intervened in the incident and charges might be filled against Miguel Cotto. Both Evangelista and Miguel Cotto, as well as Cotto’s father, Miguel Cotto Senior suffered minor injuries. This is not the first time that Miguel Cotto and his trainer have had disputes, although none have been reported to reach such a boiling point.
