WBC middleweight Champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32 KO) is ready to offer heavy bombardment but take no sustained flak from incoming challenger Daniel Geale on D Day, this Saturday, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The thriller, scheduled for twelve rounds, will be broadcast by HBO to the US and to the Americas by Combate Space. Cotto offered up an impressive public training stint to the press at the legendary Gleasons Gym in Brooklyn.
Legendary Trainer Freddie Roach said: ‘We had a great training camp. And I’m really happy and satisfied with the work Miguel has been doing.’ Succinct with words, Miguel ventured and said: ‘I’m fully prepared and calm about this bout. We’re totally focused on Daniel Geale. After June 6th we will talk about the next step. We are really happy to be in New York, as this is my second home. It is a enormous pleasure to fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.’ Roach added: ‘I think Geale is a hard fighter who’ll be a good competitor. He will last a few rounds. Miguel is in great physical condition. I really enjoy working with him, because he’s always willing to give his best, to listen and to learn. At this level that’s not always a usual thing!’
