Cotto Has No Preference For December Ring Return

WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32KOs) is not focused on any individual opponent for his planned ring return in December. Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum revealed to BoxingScene.com that Cotto will return on December 13th at New York's Madison Square Garden. The opponent is unknown. Cotto and his team will sit down to discuss possible opponents in the next week or so.

"I have no favorite [in mind for the] opponent. We have several [options], and we will take the best one. We're willing to listen all proposals...we are going to sit down and negotiate. We will reach an agreement and enjoy a great fight," promised Cotto.

"Seeing how Freddie Roach has worked, the efforts he had made to improve my career, it's something that motivates me to be the best. Freddie is a key factor in the choice of my next opponent. We are confident that we will offer a great show."
