Emmanuel Steward, new trainer of popular Puerto Rican boxer, Miguel Cotto is calling on Pacquiao for a rematch. Steward says the reason why Cotto lost to Pacquiao last November was that Cotto had a poor balance and he says he knows how to remedy the flaw.
Puerto Rican boxer Miguel Cotto is seeking a rematch with Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao, according to El Vocero, a Puerto Rican newspaper. The statement was reportedly issued by Emmanuel Steward, the new trainer of Cotto.
Steward said Cotto wants another crack at Pacquiao who won over the Puerto Rican boxer in their last November fight at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The popular Puerto Rican boxer is currently training in Florida under Steward for his next fight against Yuri Foreman in June for the super welterweight championship belt currently held by Foreman.
Yahoo News reports:
Steward said the reason why Cotto lost to Pacquiao was the fact that Cotto had poor balance and that he knows how to remedy the flaw and also rekindle the fire in Cotto's belly. Although Cotto is not among those being eyed to face Pacquiao when the Filipino returns to the ring in September or November, he could end up being on the same ring with the world's No. 1 fighter this year since they're are both promoted by Top Rank.
Steward said that Cotto's defeat against Manny Pacquiao was humiliating and that he wants to face him again. He believes Cotto has still what it has to take as a former world champion. Since Pacquiao and Cotto are under Bob Arum's promotional outfit, it would be easy for the popular promoter to arrange a fight between them, Steward added.
