Cotto confident of success

WBO welterweight champion Miguel Cotto insists he has the speed and the power to overcome Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino on Saturday.

Cotto goes into the fight against the pound-for-pound king as the underdog, however the Puerto Rican is confident that he will prevail.

And Cotto, who has a record of 34-1 (27 KOs), believes he not only has the hand speed to match Pacman but the power to finish the job.

"I'm prepared for the speed of Manny," Cotto said.

"My hand speed is pretty equal to Manny's. But can Manny's power equal Miguel Cotto's on Saturday night? I am very calm. I have been doing this for many years."

Cotto has teamed up with Joe Santiago for the bout, after falling out with his uncle and previous trainer Evangelista.

And Cotto is pleased with the way his training has gone.

"The training camp we had, that's going to make the difference," he added.

"When you have good communication with all the members of your team, an integrated team, and they put their efforts together to really make Miguel Cotto the best Miguel Cotto he can be, it makes a very comfortable training camp."
