Former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30KOs) is considering the possibility of a move to 160-pounds on December 1. Cotto's return could take place in New York's Madison Square Garden or a venue in Las Vegas.

All of the champions at 160-pounds are very big compared to the 5'7 Cotto. If possible, Cotto would attempt to get a catch-weight involved in the fight.

"It's a very attractive option for me. We're analyzing and studying to see if we can do it. Yes, it is a motivation, to become the first Puerto Rican champion to win titles in four weight divisions," Cotto told Jose Sanchez.

"I do not know (how high I could fight). Those are things to discuss in the negotiations."

One possible option is French boxer Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam (27-0, 17 KOs). N'Jikam is the WBO's interim-champion, but he is set to become the full champion once the current king Dmitry Pirog steps in the ring to fight WBA champion Gennady Golovkin in August.

N'Jikam's promoter told Sanchez they are interested in facing Cotto and the right amount of money could overcome any issues with the weight.

Although he was never actually mentioned to be in the running, Cotto is not even considering the possibility of facing WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on September 15th in Las Vegas.

"September is not a possibility. I have plans with my family in July. Fighting in September would be disrupting the plans that I have with them and that is something that I will not do," Cotto said.

I dont belive that Cotto has anything to do at 160. Figthing "K'ndo" at a catch weight for the belt I dont agree. I belive that ANY championship fight should be up-to the weight limit IE: No Catch Weights. :nono: There are plenty of good fights at 154. He should and try to go for the kill a...

[QUOTE=Mr. Fantastic]Actually I don't. Like I've been saying, the reason Cotto fans think that is because most of you just stick in Cotto/Margarito threads. You guys need to look around more often or check my post history before you comment something stupid.[/QUOTE] Almost all boxing fans disp...

I wouldn't be surprised if Cotto fights Lara. Lara didn't look like a world beater tonight. Cotto has always shown a willingness to fight any and all comers. Well other than Paul Williams when they were both top welters.

[QUOTE=Mr. Fantastic]I don't have him to the same standards as Floyd or Pac. You fans are the ones that make him seem into something he's not. Besides I don't really dislike Cotto, if I did I wouldn't pay for his fights. It's his dumb fan base that display double standards like crazy. Typical stu...

That is a horrible idea. Not even a match that the fans want
