WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (36-2, 29KOs) might have another major showdown already on the sidelines. If Cotto defeats Mexican rival Antonio Margarito on December 3rd at New York's Madison Square Garden, he has the ability to secure a lucrative bout with WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0-1, 31KOs). Their mutual promoter, Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, is willing to get the fight done - if Cotto demands a Chavez clash, which the two boxers previously discussed for the tail-end of 2010 but the bout never took place.

"If Miguel Cotto wins this fight against Antonio Margarito, and wants to fight Julio Chavez, for the middleweight title - I will get that done. But, Miguel and his people have to want that, so I don't know. I've talked to Chavez and I've talked to my co-promoter with Chavez, Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions, and that fight could be delivered," Arum said.

In a past interview with, Cotto expressed a lot of interest in facing Chavez, which allows Cotto the opportunity to become the first Puerto Rican fighter in boxing history to win four world titles in four weight divisions. Besides the current title at 154, Cotto is a former WBO champion at 140 and 147.

[QUOTE=The Smash]I like Cotto a lot and I think he's a good fighter. That said, Julio Cesar Chavez is the fighter of the year, the baddest man on the planet and the number one P4P fighter in the world today. He's just on a different level. Cotto would be well advised to go after one of the pa...

[QUOTE=120]I just hope you are trolling... :nonono:[/QUOTE] You gotta be pretty slow to even question if he's trolling. It's pretty obvious.

[QUOTE=Bushbaby]Cotto is too small for Jcc he gets stopped midway. Chavez needs to stop ducking his manditory. He's a champ now & he needs to fight elite fighters.[/QUOTE] You're overrating Jr pretty bad right now. I hope it wasn't the questionable Manfredo stoppage that makes you think Jr bea...
