Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30KOs), a former three division champion, had a terrific performance last Saturday night in Las Vegas, when he traded punches for twelve rounds with Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs) at the MGM Grand. Although he lost a twelve round unanimous decision, Cotto performed much better than anyone expected.

Evangelista Cotto, the uncle and former trainer of Miguel, hopes his nephew, 31-years-old, considers the possibility of retirement after earning a record high purse and performing at the top level against the best.

In a radio interview NotiUno, Evangelista said - "[Miguel] should consider the option of [walking away from boxing] all his faculties intact. Boxers should not walk away when they are finished, they should walk away when they are still doing well. And right now he has a great opportunity to retire. There is no need to feel bad. He did an excellent job [against Mayweather], a great fight. When we were a family unit, myself along with his father, said Miguel would retire at age 30 with no injury."

He also hopes to win the multi million dollar lawsuit he got against his nephew.

Cotto looks rejuvenated with Pedro at the helm, he did well against Margs and now Mayweather. Kind of interested to see if team Cotto can string together a run a 154 and possibly challenge for a title @160. There are 6 or 7 viable opponents @ 154 (Canelo, Vanes, Lara, Molina, Kirk, Angulo, K9, Pw...
