Cotto vs Kamegai Final Press Conference – Miguel Cotto meets Yoshihiro Kamegai on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California with the vacant WBO world super welterweight title on the line.
The fight seees Cotto return to the Golden Boy Promotional banner for this fight, which comes after a layoff of close to two years for the Puerto Rican sensation. In Kamegai, he gets a fighter with a crowd-pleasing style who went 1-0-1 in 2016 in a pair of fights against Mexico’s Jesus Soto Karass. Should Cotto add the WBO world title to his extensive resume, he would be in position to close out his career with one or more big money fights.
In this TBC report we look back at Thursday’s press conference as GBP and HBO put in the last bit of work to hype Saturday’s fight. Friday afternoon will see the fighters gather one last time for the weigh-ins and you can check your local listing for the fight start times Saturday evening on HBO.
