On September 14, a press conference was held at the Beverly Hills Hotel to promote the upcoming Miguel Cotto Vs Manny Pacquiao fight.  It was a well-attended event, but unfortunately it was not open to the public.  As a result, many were turned away, including those who had traveled a long way just for a chance to meet either fighter. 

The event should have been opened to the public, since its main purpose was promote the event to the public.  It would have also shown an appreciation to the fans, who would end up paying to big bucks for the pay per views. 

But a number of fans still chose to stay outside the hotel and wait until the press conference.  It shows how passionate the fans of both these fighters are.

Below is a video of predictions from some of the people who attended the event.
