Cotto's Main Objective is To Stop Pacquiao's Movement

The main objective for WBO welterweight champion Miguel Cotto is to stop the quick movement of Manny Pacquiao by cutting off the ring. Cotto wants to prevent Pacquiao from jumping in and out with quick combinations during their November 14 bout. Cotto plans to keep the fight as close as possible and not allow Pacquiao to create distance. In his training camp, Cotto is working in a 20 foot and a 24 foot ring, using both to cut the distance. Cotto has been sparring with Frankie Santos.

Cotto is confident that his boxing skills are than those of Pacquiao and says a 20 foot will give him the advantage, not Pacquiao.

"Pacquiao is not a better boxer than Miguel Cotto. So if someone is to benefit from the ring, it is going to be Miguel Cotto," Cotto told El Nuevo Dia.

Since the arrival of physical trainer Phil Landman, Cotto has begun the second phase of his training camp and he is really taking his body to the limit.

"I feel a little bit exhausted, me muscles are sore. But this is normal in the first couple of weeks. We have worked hard as was usual do," Cotto said.

Landman wants Cotto to have the same physical condition [if not better] that he showed in the June decision win over Joshua Clottey.
