TWO top trainers tell Boxing News how Puerto Rican warlord Miguel Cotto can be beaten, ahead of his fight with Yoshihiro Kamegai on August 26 for the WBO 154lb crown.

Louie Burke – Trainer of Austin Trout, who beat Cotto in 2012

Austin Trout beating Miguel Cotto was his best win, and what worked well for us was literally boxing circles around him. Austin’s a southpaw, so that posed some problems for Cotto, and we’re bigger than Cotto, height and reach-wise, so we used that to our advantage.
