During a recent conference call, trainer Freddie Roach touched on a variety of subjects pertaining to his fighter Manny Pacquiao’s Nov. 23 meeting with Brandon Rios.

Pacquiao vs. Rios will be the last pay per view showcase of the year, taking place from the Venetian Resort in Macau, China.

Giving updates on how camp life in General Santos City, Philippines has been over the past month, Roach was extremely upbeat, noting that Pacquiao is “90% ready” to go and that the eight-division champion’s final sparring session will take place on Saturday.

While Roach’s positive outlook towards the forthcoming match was a refreshing sign, it happened to be his comments regarding Pacquiao’s last fight, a December knockout loss at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez, that caught my eye.

This past weekend, Puerto Rican fan favorite Miguel Cotto made a resounding return to the ring by dispatching former title challenger Delvin Rodriguez in under three rounds at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fl.

Showing vintage form in what turned out to be more of a showcase bout on HBO’s airwaves as opposed to a real challenge, Cotto (38-4, 31 KO’s) ripped Rodriguez’s body early with abandon and left him dazed at the end of the second round after a whistling left hook caught his temple.

The end came moments into the third frame, as Cotto pounced on the lanky Dominican along the ropes before dropping him to the canvas with another potent left. Seconds later, referee Frank Santore Jr. would waive the contest off.

While much of the talk at the post-fight press conference and within boxing circles centered around the possibility of Cotto facing either lineal middleweight champion Sergio Martinez or Mexican superstar Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in the future, those weren’t the only big names in the play.
