Have you noticed that Puerto Rican champion, Miguel Cotto speaks English now? His promotional company, Top Rank has encouraged the young pugilist from Caugus to learn the language so that he could become a cross over star in United States. Guess what? Miguel Cotto sat down with media members in Los Angeles and Las Vegas and answered all questions in English.
Though he might never become a speaker of the house, Miguel Cotto revealed his sense of humor from the podium when he said, to paraphrase him, that when you send an idiot (Mayorga) to say something smart, he is still an idiot.
WBA super welterweight champion Miguel Cotto (35-2,28KO’S) will defend his title on Saturday night against a Nicaraguan brawler, Ricardo Mayorga (29-7-1,23KO). The twelve rounds or less bout will be televised live from the Mecca of Boxing, MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas by Showtime PPV.
