Cotto Makes it Clear: Bob Arum Will Always Promote Me

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto is starting to get a little annoyed with the continued rumors regarding his possible parting of ways from promotional company Top Rank. Last Saturday's rematch with Antonio Margarito was the final fight of Cotto's contract with Top Rank. Even before Cotto stopped Margarito in nine rounds, rumors began to circulate that Cotto was going to leave Top Rank in order to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 5.

Cotto, during a televised post-fight interview last Saturday night, voiced his loyalty to Top Rank and their CEO, Bob Arum. But, rumors continued. In yet another televised interview in Puerto Rico, Cotto once again made things clear.

"The only thing I want to let you know is that Bob Arum was, is and always will be my promoter. No matter what direction I decide to take my career, he will remain. [Bob Arum] is the person who made me who I am," Cotto said.

Cotto is considering a possible fight with WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. for 2012. A win against Chavez would make Cotto the first boxer from Puerto Rico to win four titles in four weight divisions.
