Miguel Cotto To Begin Canelo Training Camp In 3 Weeks
September 4, 2015
WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto will head to LA 3 weeks from today on September 25th to begin an eight-week training camp for November 21 megafight against Canelo Alvarez. HBO Pay-Per-View will carry the fight and it will take place at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
Freddie Roach will be manning Cotto’s camp at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood. This will be their 4th fight together and Cotto is 3-0 with 3 KOs under Roach.
“Freddie is going to outline the game plan. Canelo is a different fighter, but my biggest advantage is called Freddie Roach. He has led me to do things I have never done,” Cotto said. “We leave for Los Angeles on September 25 and on the 28th we will start the camp. We will have an eight-week camp.”
This will be Miguel Cotto’s second defense of his middleweight title that he captured last June when he knocked out Sergio Martinez. He retained the title for the first time this past June with a knockout of Daniel Geale. Both of those fights took place at a catch-weight and the fight with Canelo will take place at a catchweight 155-pounds.
