Cotto: No Preference in Facing Chavez or Margarito

BoxingScene.com caught up with WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto shortly after Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. captured the WBC middleweight belt via majority decision over Sebastian Zbik.

"I thought Chavez did a good job. Congratulations to him for winning the title," said Cotto.

Cotto is looking to face either Chavez Jr. or Antonio Margarito or in his next fight.  The Puerto Rican star said that he didn't have a preference as to which fighter would be his next opponent.

Cotto told BoxingScene, " I am not leaning either way.  My team and I will talk to Bob Arum and we will do whatever makes the most financial sense."

I tried to pry a little further by asking if a fight with Chavez would be more tempting because it would give him the opportunity to win a world title in a fourth weight class, a feat that hasn't been achieved by a fighter from Puerto Rico.

The Boricua, still not tipping his hand said, "Of course I would like to do that (win a 4th title) but we won't make a decision just based on that. We will sit down and discuss all of our options and then do what makes the most sense."

Cotto fought last in March when he scored a 12th round knockout over former champion Ricardo Mayorga at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

[QUOTE=Cuauhtémoc1502]No of course not, he's been treated with white gloves, I don't deny that. I just think that when you consider the kid hasn't had one amateur fight, then he starts boxing at age 16 and he is the son of a legend, he can't win. Cotto beats him, let's be clear on that. I j...

[QUOTE=Aracibo04]Cua, Don't you think that maybe because his record shows that he is undefeated that maybe is part of the reason why peeps hate on him.. I at least saw him loose 2 times. So, do you really believe his record is accurate?[/QUOTE] No of course not, he's been treated with whi...

i think cotto beats both now...with a better trainer i think he will avenge his loss to margarito, but he will have a tough time with chavez due only to the weight disadvantage...but i wanna see both fights...
