Cotto Says Canelo, Chavez and Others on His List

By Salvador Rodriguez

WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32KOs) says there are many options for him - including Mexican super stars Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. Cotto is scheduled to return to action in December, where he will make the first defense of the title he captured last month from Sergio Martinez at New York's Madison Square Garden. Besides Canelo and Chavez Jr., Cotto says there are many other names to be considered for future fights.

"I'm enjoying the last victory and most of all waiting to see what happens in my career. At the moment I have not thought about anything. I'll let the tide take its course and see what it brings," Cotto said.

"There are many names on the list, obviously Canelo and Chavez stick out, but we are waiting [to see what happens]. This is a business, my business and I will ensure the best opportunity for Miguel Cotto. But it is a fact, the Mexico-Puerto Rico rivalry can be rekindled."

If Cotto takes the Chavez fight at 160 he should put in the contract a deduction at 750k of Chavez' purse for every pound he goes over.
