MIGUEL COTTO:
'IT'S THE RIGHT TIME
TO FIGHT SUGAR SHANE'

For Immediate Release

World welterweight champion Miguel Cotto said today "...it's the perfect time in my career to fight Sugar Shane Mosley."

Cotto, 30-0 and coming off a brilliant performance and victory over a rugged, determined Zab Judah, said "It's time to get serious, get to work, be with my team and put the right kind of game plan together.

"I am looking forward to a great fight that will surpass the excitment of my last one at Madison Square Garden," Cotto said. "I will train hard, like I always do, and be prepared."

Cotto said he will train in Puerto Rico. His uncle and chief trainer, Evangelista Cotto, will put together and supervise a training program.

Bob Arum told fight writer Franklin McNeil of the Newark Star-Ledger "....a win over Mosley, who is a great fighter, takes Miguel to a new level."

Cotto vs. Mosley 'Fast & Furious' will be promoted by Golden Boy, Top Rank and is scheduled Nov 10 at Madison Square Garden. Cotto vs. Mosley will be available on HBO Pay Per View.

The two are expected to return to Los Angeles on or around August 25. Pacquiao vs. Barrera 'Will to Win' is scheduled October 6 at Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas. Pacquiao vs. Barrera will be available on HBO Pay Per View.
