Cotto Returns To His Second Home

Former three weight world champion Miguel Cotto is delighted to return to what he calls his second home when he challenges American Austin Trout for the WBA light middleweight title at Madison Square Garden in New York on December 1


The 31 year-old Puerto Rican has fought at the Garden on seven previous occasions and feels right at home fighting in front of New York Fight fans: “I am really excited to come back to my second home”, said Cotto. “Fighting at The Garden is always special for me and a true pleasure. There is something unique in the atmosphere and it means a lot to me every time I fight there because the energy of the fans gives me extra motivation. Austin Trout will be a challenge for me, but I will win my fifth world championship on December 1.”


Whilst Trout respects Cotto’s reputation as a great champion he feels it is now his time to shine on December 1


““Miguel Cotto needs no introduction,” said Trout. “He’s a true champion and one of the best fighters of the last ten years, but I’m the present and future of the sport and this is just the showcase I need to prove to the world that I’m one of the best, pound-for-pound. I can’t wait to fight in such a legendary place like Madison Square Garden; it’s every fighter’s dream.”
