Cotto Ready For The Best Possible Option in December

By Miguel Rivera

Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32KOs), the brand new WBC world champion at middleweight, has no idea who he'll face at the end of the year. Last Saturday night at New York's Madison Square Garden, Cotto demolished Sergio Martinez in ten rounds to capture the WBC crown.

Top Rank wants to bring Cotto back on December 6 or 13th, at Madison Square Garden or a venue in Las Vegas. Cotto's mandatory challenger at middleweight is Marco Antonio Rubio, but there are far more lucrative options at junior middleweight - like Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

During a phone conference with the offices of the World Boxing Council (WBC), Cotto said he was ready for the best possible options.

"Next week I will meet with my trainer Freddie Roach, and he will analyze what would be the best option, because right now I have no idea who I could fight against. At this moment my future is a bit uncertain. But as always Miguel Cotto is open to the top challenges, the most viable options. I just have to wait and see what will happen [and take a look at the best options that] would be the biggest benefit to me and my family," Cotto said.
