MIGUEL COTTO’S trainer, Freddie Roach, is confident his charge will come out on top in his clash with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on November 21.

Since teaming up with the Puerto Rican in 2013, Roach has trained Cotto for his past three wins, the second of which earned him the WBC world middleweight title he will defend against Alvarez.

Looking ahead to their November superfight, Roach feels Cotto, 34, has too much for Canelo, 25, who last fought James Kirkland, stopping him in three rounds in May.
