Belmontes (19-4, 5KOs) returns for the first time since landing on the wrong side of a controversial decision against unbeaten lightweight titlist Omar Figueroa in April. 

Cotto (17-2, 8KOs) has dropped two of his last three bouts, including his own loss to —albeit in far less competitive fashion as he was stopped in one round last April. His most recent performance saw a better showing, though dropping a close but clear decision to rising prospect Francisco Vargas.
