Miguel Cotto has been training hard for the past few months for the November 21 match up against Canelo Alvarez at the Mandalay Bay Events, Las Vegas. Cotto is confident that he will retain the title as WBC Middleweight Champion.
Gavin McMillan, Cotto’s strengthening coach, has seen great improvement of Cotto’s power and conditioning. According to the coach, Cotto can definitely fight against younger boxers. As the saying goes, age is just a number. Boxers younger than Cotto can attest to this. They all have felt how strong his arms and fists are. Cotto is definitely an example of age plus strength combined. And, yes, he conquered anyone on the Middleweight division.
Many other fighters and bettors believe that Cotto is too old for the fight. However, Cotto’s camp thinks otherwise. Cotto has been dominating all his last few opponents. And, for the upcoming fight, he has prepared a lot just to prove that age does not matter in this industry.
Others say that Canelo’s youth is one of his advantages and he should use that. With this, Canelo is also equipped with strength and speed unlike before. Well, Cotto does not believe so. Now, we all just have to wait for the ultimate to see and prove who really is a true champion.
Make sure you will not miss Cotto vs Canelo on November 21 and be part of another history in boxing.
