Here are some images I took while attending the Cotto-Pacquiao Yankee Stadium Press Conference. I would also like to add that Paulie Malignaggi is a real cool dude. When he showed up the fans showed a lot of love and he did the same. Jashua Clottey was no different. What I found very interesting about Paulie were scars on his right hand. I had completely forgotten about the number of injuries he received during his previous fights. On the other hand it was pretty funny how the first round of Cotto-Clottey was shown everyone within the crowd just started slamming on him after Cotto knock him down. No pun intended though, fans showed him respect. I asked Paulie about the rematch with Diaz his response was: All set for January at least that's the contract I signed.
At the end of the I was able to get an autograph from Clottey and asked him what's going on with the Mosley bout. His response: The deal is almost finalized just unsure on the exact date for December.
Also, I gotta mention this... the Diamond Belt was being exhibited on the conference table. What a crock of shit. If it looks horrific in pictures, it is truly a formidable nightmare from 50 feet away. It almost looks like one of those Latino whatever whatever belts. When it was taking out from it Glass case the crowd just booed. Only thing missing were tomatoes.
Oh before I forget, Roach looks a lot better fit wise than how he is exposed on TV.
