Cotto's Physical Trainer Arrives, The Hard Road Begins

The hard road begins for WBO welterweight champion Miguel Cotto. His physical conditioning coach Phil Landman has arrived in Puerto Rico and is very pleased with Cotto's workrate in the gym and his mental state of mind. In previously interviews, Cotto said the arrival of Landman is the point where his camp would enter the second and more excruciating phase. Cotto faces Manny Pacquiao on November 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"Miguel looks strong, happy and very motivated. It's not like Miguel has lacked any motivation in the past, it's just that I see something different [in him]. You know it's an important fight and he's taking things very seriously. Mentally, Miguel looks ready for the long work that awaits him," Landman told Primera Hora.

Landman says the training camp will last around eleven weeks and then they plan to go on the promotional tour, and then move the camp from Puerto Rico to Florida. He says there are few things in Cotto that adjusting but he doesn't see any problems.

"This time the training camp will last about 11 weeks and it helps to ensure that Miguel reaches a certain condition before having to do the promotional tour and then going to Tampa, Florida," said Landman. "There are a few things we can improve and we will be concentrating on a combination of things."

  1. I see Cotto winning as long as he does'nt get tired in the later rounds like he always does.You know Pac will be throwing punches every round. If Cotto is well conditioned and prepared then he will win the fight, and by KO.
