Steward to Train Cotto for Foreman

After agreeing to a role as a consultant for a few weeks with the Yuri Foreman camp, legendary trainer Emanuel Steward has not only backed out, but decided to become the head trainer of Foreman's June 5th opponent, Miguel Cotto.

Foreman's trainer Joe Grier told BoxingScene.com, "We don't need chaos in our camp. I'm pleased that it worked out the way it did. This isn't being overconfident, but I don't believe at this point we need Emanuel to come in and save our lives." Grier went on to state that he was disappointed when he originally heard Steward was signed by the Foreman camp. Grier believes the team around Foreman is quite capable.

Foreman (28-0, 8 KOs) and Cotto (34-2, 27 KOs) will be competing for Foreman's WBA light middleweight title at Yankee Stadium in New York. Foreman will be making his first title defense. Cotto is coming off of a brutal loss to pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao.
