Cotto: "Pacquiao Will Be Another Win For Puerto Rico"

For the first time, Miguel Cotto revealed that his WBO welterweight title will be on the line when he meets Manny Pacquiao on November 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Previously, everyone but Cotto would confirm that the welterweight would be at stake at the catch-weight of 145-pounds. Cotto plans to use his physical size and strenght advantage in the fight to exploit Pacquiao.

"We reached a deal last week. The WBO title will be at stake. They offered us additional guarantees and benefits (to defend the title). Every since the fight was signed, I have the mindset of victory. After the [Pacquiao fight], we will see what is out there. I do not believe that Pacquiao who is physical enough to make it a fight [at welterweight]. I have that advantage over him and that will carry me to victory," Cotto told Primera Hora.

Cotto says that his only concern is Pacquiao's speed. He plans to counter the quick hands of Pacquiao with a good defense. He says the Filipino fighter may have to find someone else at 147 to capture a seventh title.

"The only thing I have to take care of is his speed. By using a good defense, we can counteract it. If he wants a world title, he will have to find someone [to beat] at 147. On November 14, it's going to be a great fight and another win for Puerto Rico," Cotto said.
