Cotto Coming Back To MSG, Tourney Idea Rejected

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former three division champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30KOs) is coming back to Madison Square Garden in New York City, according to the boxer's legal adviser Gabriel Penagaricano. Cotto last fought on May 5th in Las Vegas, losing a twelve round unanimous decision and the WBA 154-pound title to Floyd Mayweather Jr.

"There will be an official announcement soon, but it is public knowledge that it will definitely be in New York," said Penagaricano to Carlos Gonzalez.

The rumored return date is December 1.

The possibility of Cotto being involved in a potential junior middleweight tournament was rejected. Golden Boy's Oscar De La Hoya would like to put on a tournament involving the best 154-pounders, but nobody ever believed that Cotto would involve himself in such a venture.

"It's not something that I've discussed with Miguel, but he is at a level where he enjoys the privilege of choosing his opponents, when he fights and where. Participating in a tournament like that is not being considered," said Penagaricano.

Skip the September date and get twice the PPV buys to fight Cotto in December. Perfect fight for both. But I doubt Canelo goes to NY.
