Cotto Will Eye May 4th Outcomes Before Setting Return

By Rey Colon

Former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (37-4, 30 KO's) lost back to back fights to Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Austin Trout. The Puerto Rican superstar is looking to return on a date in September or October.

Both Mayweather Jr. as Trout are going to take part in separate fights on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayweather will defend his WBC welterweight crown against Robert Guerrero, while Trout is likely going to challenge WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in a unification fight.

According to sources, Cotto will wait until the two May fights have been resolved before making his move. However, if Mayweather Jr. and Alvarez are the winners, and decide to fight each other in the fall, then Cotto will have to search for another high profile target.

[QUOTE=RL_GMA;13073696]If Canelo loses, Cotto vs Canelo sorta makes sense again and can probably be a big fight in the Fall.[/QUOTE] If Cotto doesn't decide to retire, this would be a great plan.
