Cotto's Adviser: A Fight With Canelo Would Be Huge

By Miguel Rivera

The legal advisor to three-division world champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30KOs), Gabriel "Gaby" Peñagarícano, says a fight with WBC/WBA junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) would be a huge event. If Canelo is unable to secure a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. for September 14th, Peñagarícano says the second biggest opportunity for the young Mexican is a fight with Cotto.

"Canelo and [Austin] Trout put 40,000 people [at the Alamodome] in San Antonio. And as I said before - a fight Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez would be much more attractive. I am certainly sure it would attract more people. It would be like one of those events held years ago, [before many thousands] in a stadium. But Miguel has not indicated who he would like to return against. He is in no hurry [to make that decision]. Cotto is sitting in a good position at the moment. Everyone is talking about Canelo, but he's never been on pay-per-view," Peñagarícano told Carlos Narvaez.

[QUOTE=El Angel;13364540]Change it? I can mention recent fights in Texas that were robberies too. It's not that hard. My point was Texas has bigger issues than just scoring. This fight, if it happens, should be in Las Vegas or Cotto…

[QUOTE=Mr. Fantastic;13363971]:rofl: So now you're trying to change it and go that route once you realized I was going to mention fights that were robberies. But since you want to play it like that.......NY let Tito wrap his hands illegally…
