Cotto Eyes Fall Return, Two More in 2014, Then Retires

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30KOs) is planning to have three more fights before retiring from boxing to spend time with his family and pursue his venture as boxing promoter on a full-time basis.

Cotto, 32-years-old, plans to fight in October or November of this year, and then wants to have two more matches in 2014 before walking away for good. He still has hopes for a big match with WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. Their match was going to potentially happen this year, but Cotto was upset by WBA champ Austin Trout last December in New York.

"I can say that I'll have three fights before I retire from boxing and devote myself to my children," Cotto said to El Nuevo Dia.

I dont think Cotto will win a major belt again. He wants 3 more fights? Has he money issues or what? He had a great career but its time to retire.

Honestly, I don't want to see Cotto vs Canelo. I did about 3 fights ago but not now. Canelo hands Cotto a brutal beating.
