Oh man...this is really horrible. Apparently Miguel Cotto is dropping long time trainer / Uncle Evangelista Cotto. There's history of some trouble between the 2 but was kept under wraps.

The question automatically becomes, who's going to train Cotto now? Well sources are saying his new trainer is none other than Buddy McGirt.

He will relocate his training from Puerto Rico to Florida following his fight this Saturday against Alfonso Gomez.

I really don't like this move at all. McGirt hasn't been a successful trainer for quite sometime now and I don't see how he's going to improve Cotto anymore or get him to an elite status prepping for a future super fight against Floyd Mayweather.

This blows...

Rest of the story:

Cotto Sr. has stated that the news of Evangelista Cotto leaving as Miguel's trainer are false and that the camp will remain as is. I still think there's internal problems, but at least Buddy McGirt is out of the picture.

    Yo Buddy McGirt, I'm sure don't remember us but back in the day we played basketball with you over at the Bayshore L.I. courts was like in the 1980's you' couldn't play worth a shit but it was great having you as a team member cause if shit went down we knew you could kick some ass, love ya bro, a guy from Bayshore who now lives in Lakeland Florida.
