Cotto Would Not Rule Out Facing Sergio Martinez

by Rick Reeno

Former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30KOs) would not rule out the possibility of facing WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (50-2, 28KOs), potentially at a catch-weight of 157-pounds.

"Of course [I would consider it], but we would have to check the whole business [of the offer] first and then we'll decide what way we're going to go," Cotto told BoxingScene.com. "We always check what are the best options available to us and the best option available for our next fight - we're going to get it."

Martinez returns on April 27th against Martin Murray in Argentina. Cotto, 32-years-old, is coming off back to back decision losses, to Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Austin Trout, and only plans to fight for another two years at most. After the two years are up, he plans to spend time with his family and wants to concentrate on his growing promotional company, Miguel Cotto Promotions.

"[I'll be back] between November and December of this year, we'll come back to the ring again and check how Miguel Cotto is doing. About a year and a half, two years - that's all Miguel Cotto has. Three more fights, that's all, and then Miguel Cotto will hang [up] his gloves and enjoy life with the family," Cotto said.

[QUOTE=BafanaBafana;13103762]Why does every single thread on this site turn into a Mayweather/Pacquiao thread after about 30-50 posts? One guy claims Martinez would beat Cotto because he's a bigger version of Pac and all the *******s come flying in like flies…

[QUOTE=Light_Speed;13103727]Was JMM the tougher opponent for Pac yes or no? You got people here who said team Pac ducked Bradley (a fighter most people believe he beat) to fight JMM (a fighter most people believe beat him in the 3rd…

[QUOTE=Mr. Fantastic;13103765]Another one who clearly talks out of his ass with fights he most likely didn't see.[/QUOTE] What would be your take on Margarito/Garcia?

Comment by Mr. Fantastic on 03-02-2013

[QUOTE=GRUSTLER;13103508]They chose JMM because Cotto would not agree to another catch weight before the 3rd and 4th rematch(es) with JMM. Also, JMM was the bigger money fight. Margarito was suspended for a year, came back and [B]had a competitive fight…
