Yesterday the two men attendeda press conference to officially announce the bout.
The press conference saw both men talk about the up coming bout and take part in a face-to-face, which showed that Kamegai was the naturally bigger fighter, and he did look to have more than the reported 2" height advantage.
Cotto admitted that Kamegai was a "tough fighter" but that he had "victory on his mind", in what will be his first bout since a November 2015 loss to Saul Alvarez. As for Kamegai he showed a lot of respect to Cotto, and stated that he had been a "fan" of Cotto and that it was an "honour" to face him. He accepted that his English wasn't great but that he was looking to have a "very entertaining fight", something we've come to expect of the Teiken man.
For fans interested in watching this one, it's been confirmed as a HBO telecast in America and that Boxnation will show it in the UK,
