Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Miguel Cotto are confident in winning
American Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto were very confident on their preparations and they hope they can win the bout this Satruday when they feature the main card of the “Ring Kings” show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
“Pretty Boy” Mayweather Jr. and “Junito” Cotto attended to the final presser at the Hollywood Theater of the MGM Grand with the presences of the promoter Oscar de La Hoya and the president of the WBC Jose Sulaiman.
Before several media outlets who attended the conference, the main cards sat on two Golden thrones.
The unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. who will fight for the WBC diamond belt, said that Cotto is a true warrior, a good champion who will be remembered as one of the best boxers in history.
“To be the best, you have to be superior and this bout had to happen” said the five time world champion.
“He’s been a gentleman the whole way with me,” the Puerto Rican said of his opponent. “I’ve been a gentleman with him. That’s the way it should be. You get paid to fight in the ring, not outside the ring.”
Pedro Diaz, Cotto’s trainer said “In boxing, talking doesn’t get you the victory, your fists, the preparation and the execution is what gets you the victory. The 5th of May you will see a victorious Miguel Cotto”.
During the press conference, Mr. Sulaiman showed the Diamond belt that will be at stake during the clash and said: “this belt is only for the best boxers in the world, and without any doubt Mayweather and Cotto are ones of the best”.
