Roach Throws Verbal Jabs at Cotto

During the buildup of WBO welterweight champ Miguel Cotto vs. Manny Pacquiao, the challenger's trainer, Freddie Roach, says he's having fun at the expense of Cotto and his chief cornermen, Joe Santiago.

Cotto "is slower," and "gets hit so much more" since his 11th-round knockout loss to Antonio Margarito, and "his defense sucks, because he's training himself," said Roach.

See what else Roach had to say after the jump.

FanHouse: You've been doing an amazing amount of interviews, are these the most you've done other than when you were training Mike Tyson?

Freddie Roach: Without a doubt, yes

FH: Is it any more enjoyable?

Roach: Yeah, I'm having fun with it, getting inside Miguel Cotto's head a little bit, and getting his trainer [Joe Santiago] all upset. It's a little bit of fun, yeah.

FH: Do you feel that you're being successful at it?

Roach: I know how to sell the fight. I'll say things to get inside of his head. They'll say that they're not affected by anything at all, and they're not paying attention to what Freddie Roach says.

But then they say that, 'We will knock Manny Pacquiao out.' I mean, they're obviously, they're taking it really hard.
