Will and should Cotto stay at 154 or try back at 147?
Spinks vs Molina was a #1 contenders bout for Bundrage/Smith so if he stays maybe Bundrage/Smith hopefully fights Molina in may/June and Cotto could fight them to get those guys more exposure. Yeah he just had back to back title fights but Cottos still and OG and puts up a good fight. Kirkland and Alvarez are still viable options. Even a trout rematch if he loses to Alavrez. Maybe a tuneup against Deandrade or Rosado. Needs some confidence after back to back losses.
My favorite option if he would do it is go back to 147. Thats where he would most likely become champion and stay relevant. Pac isnt what he was so a rematch between them would be sick. Like a recent thread suggested by Phantom, I think a tune up against Maidana, Berto or Ortiz would be sick! Then he could fight for a belt. He'd smash Paulie and make Devon quit. A Bradley fight would be sick to earn another shot at Floyd or Manny. Bradley would remind me of Clottey-Cotto I think it would be sick because Cotto would need to really get his punch numbers up because like Clottey Bradleys hard to hit and never stops working on the inside and solid boxer too.
