New York, N.Y. – Four-division world champion Miguel Cotto (41-5, 33 KOs) hosted a media workout at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles ahead of the final fight of the future Hall of Famer’s career, which will be against the hard hitting Brooklyn, New York puncher Sadam “World Kid” Ali (25-1, 14 KOs) for most boxing critics many will say that Ali is way over his head, I clearly believe this is not the case for Ali. I think this is the fight Ali needs to put him over the hump in terms of earning more respect from fans all over the world and certainly getting a big payday fights. Ali from the bell we predict will start off early on the veteran Cotto, no question Ali is younger but is he faster, quicker then Cotto.
Ali is a star no one knows about yet raised and fighting his young life in the heart of Brooklyn he is a Junior Olympic National Champion was a PAL National Champion, a U-19 National Champion and two-time New York City Golden Gloves Champion added to many more of his accomplishments, Recently Ali fought twice in 2017 with a stoppage over Jorge Silva in January and a unanimous decision win over Johan Perez in July. As for the boxing legend Miguel Cotto it is business as usual coming off a very impressive victory over Japanese warrior Yoshihiro Kamegai in August, Cotto has battled through many wars and has seen it all, there is no question the veteran Cotto is not taking Ali lightly.
The Puerto Rico star Cotto clearly did not waist any punches in his Hall of Fame career without a doubt he moved very well and boxed Kamegai in a all out battle giving the fans a fresh breath of air reminding us of all the great fights Miguel Cotto holds the record at the “Mecca” Madison Square Garden with over 140,000 tickets sold in nine fights for Cotto’s WBO World Junior Middleweight Championship. The action will take place at the World’s Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden, and will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
