Freddie Roach, is predicting that WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto will stop challenger Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez late on, when they fight on November 21st in Las Vegas, Nevada. The famed trainer says: ‘Miguel Cotto is going to get the KO in the final rounds. I am sure he’ll win. I can bet on it. I don’t mind about the opinion of who is the favorite. I have the perfect plan and strategy for Cotto´s triumph.’ Roach’s savvy, experience and guile, have combined to rejuvenate the Puerto Rican pugilist, who hs been transformed and is greatly enjoying his boxing.
Cotto acknowledged the invaluable Roach factor saying: ‘I came from losing two consecutive times and Freddie found me again. In my last three fights, my work with Freddie has been evident.’ Nevertheless the champion would do well not to underestimate his Mexican opponent, who has lost just once in 47 fights. That sole loss came against Floyd Mayweather two years ago in Vegas.
