Cotto-Margarito Pushed Back To September in Las Vegas

By Michael Marley

It was formally announced Thursday by Top Rank that junior middleweight contender Kermit Cintron was joining their ranks. I rang Arum in Puerto Rico, where his marvelous little champ Juan Manuel Lopez fights Saturday night, to ask about plans for the James Prince handled Cintron. (Prince being the Houston Rap-A-Lot music mogul who used to manage Floyd Mayweather Jr. before they had a money dispute.)

Arum said Cintron likely fits in as the next foe for the Antonio Margarito-Miguel Cotto revenge match winner. The rematch was set to happen in July in New Jersey but the Mexican veteran is still recovering from wounds caused by the beating he took last November from Manny Pacquiao.

"The doctors said to push it back to September and we have," Arum said. "Now the fight will be in Vegas, not in New Jersey. Cintron is a good opponent for the winner of that fight as well.

Lawyer Josh Dubin and and Prince are co-managers of Cintron who has a record of 31-2-1 with 27 knockouts. (He's been stopped twice by Margarito and lost on a technical decision to Paul Williams.)

It was Prince who guided Mosley away from Top Rank rival Golden Boy. Arum said his dealings with the music man have gone smooth, dating back to when he advised Mayweather.

Margarito is just a human punchbag but an effective one I think he will end Cotto in a rematch to

[QUOTE=Mr. Fantastic;10376990]As much as I loved the first one and I'm 100% sure I'll be going to Vegas, I think Cotto and Cintron should fight first.[/QUOTE] That fight would be too risky for greedy Bob. If somehow Cintron won, it…
