Bob Arum: I Want To Do Cotto vs. Chavez Clash in MSG

By Miguel Rivera

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum already has another huge fight in mind for 2012. On Saturday night at New York's Madison Square Garden, WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (36-2, 29 KOs) retained his title with a tenth round technical knockout over Antonio Margarito (38-7, 27 KOs). At the start of the tenth round, the ringside doctors stopped the contest after concluding that Margarito's right eye was swollen shut and too severly damaged to allow him to continue.

What's next for Miguel Cotto? Arum wants to match him in a big money catch-weight bout with undefeated WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0-1, 31KOs).

"The fight I want to do with Miguel, is right here [in Madison Square Garden] with Chavez," Arum said.

[QUOTE=isaacjuarez;11516425]Arum just such as scumbag... Cotto will not do well in this fight. Jr. way too big for him... Put Jr. against Martinez, that is a fight.[/QUOTE] Martinez vs Chavez is not a fight Cotto vs Chavez is a fight…
