Cotto's Left Handed Spar Mate Key to Victory

I've read a news today that Cotto is looking for a left-handed sparring mate to become a Pacquiao-man for his training prior to the upcoming Pacquiao vs. Cotto fight on November. Cotto's camp believes that the key to conquering the might of the "Pacman" is to become adapted or adjusted to the strong left punches of the pound for pound king.

Here's the excerpt of the said news from (Manila Bulletin):
Tapping and finding sparring partners who are mirror-images of Manny Pacquiao will be the key to victory for Miguel Cotto when he faces the Filipino icon on November 14 in Las Vegas.

Cotto chief trainer Joe Santiago told the newspaper El Nuevo Dia that they are on the lookout for southpaw sparring partners who they plan to bring to Tampa, Florida, for the crucial phase of training camp.

“We will try to get left-handed and short boxers with good hand speed (like Pacquiao). This is the key to victory,”

Santiago said as he was presiding over Cotto’s first training session on Monday in Puerto Rico.

Cotto said he felt great after his light training, something that was not the case in the past.

“I feel very well, thanks to God. Better than when I began in previous occasions,” said the 28-year-old Cotto, who will report to the gym three times a week in the next two weeks in time for the arrival of conditioning coach Phil Landman.

What do you think? Will that be enough for Cotto to win? Do Pacquiao need to worry about this early preparation of the Puerto Rican? It seems that Pacquiao is not on the training mode yet. What can you say guys?
