Interviews from Miguel Cotto Media Day
On October 5, 2013, Four time world champion in Three divisions Miguel Cotto will face Delvin Rodriguez. The fight will take place at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida while the fight will air on HBO. This is a comeback fight for Miguel Cotto because he is coming off back to back loses with Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Austin Trout (all from 2012).
I attended media day for Miguel Cotto on September 18, 2013 at the Wildcard GYM in Hollywood. I watched Cotto get his hands wrapped, jump rope, work the mitts with Freddie Roach, work the heavy bag, double end bag and hit the speed bag. Then after all the boxing workouts Miguel did a group interview with Spanish and did a few English interviews with a few media people.
Here are the interviews that I did at media day.
My one question interview. While Miguel was getting his hands wrapped Cotto answered two questions and one of questions he answered was my question. I recorded my question for Cotto to answer and he replied to it.
My one question interview with Miguel Cotto.
Next, here is my one on one interview with Freddie Roach regarding training camp, Delvin Rodriguez, training Miguel and Manny Pacquiao making a surprise appearance during week 1 of Cotto's training.
Finally, here is my interview with Ruslan Provodnikov. I interviewed while he paused and take time to do interviews with media. I asked Ruslan the training, training alongside with Miguel, making 140 pounds and more.
Overall, I enjoyed the media day, but I was not able to get a one on one interview. The good thing is while Cotto was getting his hands wrapped I was able to ask Miguel my question and he answered it. At least, I something instead of nothing. There were lots of media that wanted to get an interview with Miguel but Miguel could only get to a couple of them. My interview with Freddie Roach was laid back because Freddie felt at ease. While my interview with Ruslan was calm and relaxing. The questions that you have to asked yourself come October 5, 2013 are as follows.
Is this a due or die for Miguel Cotto? What will happen if Miguel loses? Will he retire? If Miguel wins will he fight Carlos Molina? Or Canelo Alvarez? Or anybody from 154, or 147? These are questions that will be answered come October 5.
