HOLLYWOOD—Going by Miguel Cotto’s website updates, you’d think that the Puerto Rican boxing star is running a very relaxed camp.
Manny Pacquiao isn’t convinced, though.
The pound-for-pound king, who has been jovial and worry-free for several training days now, thinks Cotto is still shedding off pounds with about eight days to go before their Nov. 14 fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
“I think he’s dieting,” said Pacquiao.
Several foreign journalists who saw Cotto during his press preview Tuesday think he’s even crash-dieting.
In contrast, Pacquiao is enjoying the benefits of fighting in a heavier weight—he gets to eat more.
