    Re: Pacquiao vs Cotto

    HBO officially released episode 1 of the Pacquiao-Cotto fight a week late on Youtube compared to when it was first telecast, but now seemed to have stopped releasing it there lately for some reason. I think its a pretty stupid idea on their part. Anyway, here are episodes 2 and 3 of the "Pacquiao-Cotto 24/7" from alternate sources:

    The previous Pacquiao 24/7 episode 2 and 3 links I gave out played a bit jerky on my netbook. Here are two lower quality, but more watchable videos:

    * Pacquiao-Cotto 24/7 Episode two (low quality video)

    * Pacquiao-Cotto 24/7 Episode three (low quality video)

    Why Cotto will lose in November 14.

    With this new information, it is very likely Cotto will have the living shi_ beaten out of him next Saturday.


    Clan 'War' Hounds Cotto

    By Joaquin Henson (The Philippine Star) Updated November 09, 2009 12:00 AM

    MANILA, Philippines - Whatever distractions there may be in Manny Pacquiao’s training camp, none could be worse than the suit filed against Miguel Cotto by his uncle and former trainer Evangelista Cotto.

    Last April, the Cottos slugged it out in a gym in Caguas, Puerto Rico, over a dispute stemming from the champion’s irreverent lifestyle, financial issues and training habits. It was an ugly brawl between a nephew and his uncle who’d worked together since the fighter was a boy.

    Evangelista signed a contract to train Cotto when the Sydney Olympian turned pro in 2001. The deal stipulated a 10 percent share of Cotto’s purses as trainer. It was later revised to include another 10 percent cut from earnings in Cotto’s promotional company Promociones Miguel Cotto and a 33 percent slice of his purses as a world champion.

    Tempers flared when Cotto wanted to move his training camp from Caguas to Tampa, Florida, against Evangelista’s wishes. They scuffled, leaving Cotto’s uncle with a broken nose and busted ribs. Evangelista said he was “brutally attacked” and suffered “serious injuries.” He filed a $7.5 million suit for damages, mainly for breach of contract, secondarily for injuries and “emotional stress” from the brawl.

    The trainer claimed Cotto owes him 23 percent of his purses since 2004 when the fighter won the vacant WBO lightwelterweight crown. Evangelista said Cotto continued to pay him only 10 percent of his prize money when it should have increased to 33 percent since he became a world champion.

    Their quarrel was so embittered that Evangelista threw a cement brick that shattered the windshield of Cotto’s 2009 Jaguar during their altercation last April.

    Apparently, the problem started when Cotto’s brother Jose - also a fighter - parted ways with Evangelista who refused to patch things up despite efforts by the now WBO welterweight champion. Then, Evangelista openly chastised Cotto for leaving his wife Melissa Guzman with whom he has two children, Alondra and Miguel III, for another woman. The trainer was upset that Cotto often brought his girlfriend to the gym and exposed his children to her.

    Cotto was separated from his wife for two years but they’ve reconciled. “I’m not the best husband but I want to be the best father,” said Cotto who has a daughter with another woman. In 2007, Cotto went to court for a protection order against the woman who was prevented from gaining access to his home in the Valle del Turabo sector of Caguas and the Bairoa gym where he trains.

    “In Puerto Rico, we treasure and honor our boxing champions who are role models for our youth,” said Evangelista’s lawyer Carlos Dalmau. “We love and support them when they go into the ring. However, we cannot allow them to humiliate and abuse others outside the ring. No one is above the law.”

    Cotto split with Evangelista before his fight against Joshua Clottey and elevated assistant trainer Joe Santiago, a 32-year-old nutritionist. With Santiago in his corner, Cotto nearly lost to Clottey and barely won on a split 12-round decision to retain the WBO title in New York City last June. More than Santiago, it was cutman Joe Chavez who saved the day for Cotto. The Puerto Rican’s left eyebrow was badly cut by a headbutt in the third round and he managed to survive the distance despite the deep gash that later required 20 stitches to close.

    Chavez used to work in Pacquiao’s corner as a cutman. Curiously, Cotto’s former cutman Miguel Diaz of Argentina now works in Pacquiao’s corner.

    The jury is still out on Santiago but at least, there is now peace in Cotto’s camp.

    “For Cotto, things might have been calmer in camp without his uncle but can Santiago motivate Cotto the way Evangelista could?” wrote Boxing News’ Tris Dixon. “If the chips are down, does he know what buttons to push? There is no doubt his uncle knew how to and, despite their personal differences, they were a potent match on a professional level.”

    While Santiago’s competence is questionable, there is no doubt about the qualifications of his counterpart in Pacquiao’s team. Freddie Roach is easily the world’s best boxing trainer today. And with Diaz at his side, Roach enjoys the assistance of a 71-year-old veteran who has bandaged 33 and trained eight world champions in a legendary career.

    Diaz predicted another Pacman demolition in the fight against Cotto just like Ricky Hatton.

    “Cotto is a damaged fighter,” said Diaz, referring to the Puerto Rican’s knockout loss to Antonio Margarito last year. “Cotto was once a lightwelterweight. I just think Manny’s too strong for Cotto. I’m very proud to be working with a great champion. I worked the corners of Oscar Larios and Jorge Solis when they lost to Manny. They couldn’t beat him. I couldn’t beat him so I joined him. It’s very rare you find a fighter like Manny.”

    Diaz said at this stage in Pacquiao’s career, he has to be ranked up there in the all-time honors list with the likes of Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran and Carlos Monzon. If Pacquiao beats Cotto, he will win an unprecedented seventh world title in his seventh weight division - a feat no fighter has ever accomplished in ring history.
