Three-time world champion Miguel Cotto has settled into his training camp in Tampa this week. Cotto is in camp with his new trainer Emanuel Steward, his physical trainer, Phil Landman and his assistant trainer Joe Santiago. “We have to take Miguel back to his days as a boxer, because for his fight against Yuri Foreman he will need to be quick to cut the ring off and fast to land his punches,” said Steward. Cotto will take on Foreman for the WBA super welterweight championship on June 5 at Yankee Stadium in a fight to be telecast live on HBO. Cotto will be seeking a world title in a third division. He has held the WBO Jr. welterweight and welter championship as well as the WBA welterweight championship.

Mayweather Quick Quotes

Photo: Mary Ann Owen

By Andreas Hale

- I don’t think any fighter has a chance to beat me. There’s a blueprint on Shane, he has five losses. Nobody has beaten Floyd Mayweather. The ultimate goal is try to build a fight that can beat Mayweather.

- I think he’s out of character. We know the soft-spoken Shane Mosley. Now he’s 38-years-old getting tattooed? I think his divorce has played a major role and put a lot of pressure on Shane. I know what it takes. There’s no pressure on me. I do everything great.

- Mosley has been in the sport 18 years. WE don’t know how long Shane has been doing PED’s. All of these fighters have been cheating for years. People have been hurt by cheaters. I want to do the sport, and I want to do it clean. I’m the face of boxing and I’m here to clean it up.

- (On people saying his fights are “boring”) It’s not my fault that I’m so much better than the fighters that I’m facing. It’s always so one-sided. They want to see me fight in a toe- to-toe battle. I’m just a smart and a very intelligent fighter.

New Faces: Jhoan Perez

By Robert Coster

Jr welterweight Jhoan Perez (8-0, 7 KOs) is probably Venezuela’s hottest prospect. In his last fight, on the undercard of the Moreno-Cermano title bout, Perez greatly impressed onlookers by destroying fellow prospect Azael Cosio (then unbeaten at 8-0) of Panama in just two rounds, thus winning the WBA Fedecentro title. The lanky 5’11 Perez has one great asset and it’s called power with both hands. He has been compared in that department to Edwin Valero. Perez turned pro after a successful amateur career where he racked up a 100-17 record. (more…)

Kamegai wins Japanese 140 belt

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten prospect, top contender Yoshihiro Kamegai (15-0, 13 KOs), 140, impressively captured the Japanese super-light belt as he floored WBC#13/WBA#15 defending titlist Yosukezan Onodera (21-2-1, 8 KOs), 140, in the first and second, and finally decked the fading champ with a vicious left-right combination to prompt the referee’s halt at 2:05 of the ninth session on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. Kamegai, formerly three-time national amateur champ, toyed with the champ with speed and skills, sweeping all rounds prior to the dramatic stoppage. Kamegai’s future looks bright. In a companion national title go, WBC#14 Japanese 122-pound champ Masaaki Serie (16-3, 6 KOs), 121.5, barely kept his belt by eking out a split decision (96-93, 97-92 and 95-96) over top-ranked Kyohei Tamakoshi (25-6-6, 10 KOs), 122, over ten.
