Canelo-Cotto Still Very Much a Reality, Says Schaefer

As already reported on BoxingScene.com, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer is still very much interested in staging a fight between WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs) and former three division king Miguel Cotto (37-4, 30KOs). Golden Boy was planning to make the match for May 4th. Cotto suffered a setback on Saturday in New York, when he lost a twelve round unanimous decision to WBA "regular" beltholder Austin Trout.

Cotto does have a rematch clause, but Trout's people are not expecting him to exercise it. Although Cotto lost the fight, he put in a very good effort and he'd still be the most dangerous opponent of Canelo's career. 

"Definitely [Canelo-Cotto] is still a possibility. We will talk to Miguel and see what he wants to do. Miguel is an exciting fighter. He always gives a great show, entertaining the fans. Sure, you always want to win more than lose, but I still think that Cotto-Alvarez is a very good matching of styles and it would be a great fight," Schaefer told Jose Sanchez.

Bob Spagnoli, the manager of Trout, is upset that Canelo is ignoring his fighter.

"Come on, when he talks about who he wants to fight Canelo mentions everyone but Austin. When Austin beat his brother in Mexico, Canelo was in the front row and told everyone they would avenge his sibling. But what did he about it? Nothing."

[QUOTE=PAC-BOY]:pat: WHY? Cotto will get smashed! Its because Cotto has fans? Even his fans are pissed at him and anyone in their right mind knows Cotto dont stand a chance.[/QUOTE] actually I do. I saw Trout as a very difficult fight but I do believe Cotto can beat Canelo

This would be an excellent farewell for Cotto, a big payday and and a great closing to his career win or lose.

[QUOTE=Cuban Linx]Cotto lost convincingly to Austin Trout... he is no longer elite in that division. Austin Trout is a great fighter, he makes good fighters look ordinary, but Cotto lost convincingly and if you are considered elite you can't get blown out like that. Did you see their faces? Cotto...
