Two-time world title challenger and top rated junior middleweight Delvin Rodriguez will fight with three-division world champion Miguel Cotto set for Saturday, October 5 at the Amway Center and broadcast LIVE on HBO. Cotto will face tough fringe contender Delvin Rodriguez in the first step of what he hopes to be a climb back to a world title. At his side will be new trainer Freddie Roach, former promoter (and now promoting partner) Top Rank, and, as usual, the massive support of hardcore Puerto Rican fight fans everywhere. Cotto has seemed energized and upbeat about his return to the ring and to the life-consuming sport that has brought him both glory and immense pain.
Miguel Cotto: “I miss it. I’ve been away from boxing for a long time, it’s been since last December and it’s great to be back. It’s great to feel the energy. You guys being here today. I’m going to L.A. for the first time in my career to train and I’m going to bring my best. Every morning at the track, every day at the gym to come here in the the best way possible to make a great fight for all of you, all the fans here and all over the world. I hope Delvin had a great camp, I’m going to have a great camp to make a great fight for all you fans. Thank you.”
“I want to thank God for giving me this opportunity” said Rodriguez. “I know it takes so much to make a fight like this happen, I’m also very thankful to my promoter Joe DeGuardia of Star Boxing, Top Rank, HBO and Miguel Cotto Promotions.”
“This fight motivates me more than ever to face a true champion, true warrior, this fight will really show what I have and bring out the best in me. For me it’s now or never. I’m a warrior that comes forward.“
“I admire Cotto as a fighter and respect him as a person but on fight night that goes out the door, I don’t care if he’s my brother or another person” continued Rodriguez.
