It was supposed to be some rounds of golf in secret, but when there are two figures like Miguel Cotto and Oscar de la Hoya, it is difficult to go unnoticed.
Welter champion of the World Boxing Organization yesterday played a friendly round of golf with De la Hoya, president of Golden Boy Promotions, at the majestic Bay Beach Resort in Rio Grande, a day after a last minute postponement of a promotional event in Caguas.
Cotto said that the meeting with former world champion was in the schedule of both athletes.
"It was an invitation that we had a long time ago, we wanted to spend some time," said Cotto through written communication.
However, the secrecy with which it was intended to keep the interest paid to the reunion could have De la Hoya in to add el Criollo to his squad of boxers once his contract with Top Rank finishes in late 2009.
"It was a very casual and fun between them in which only one share while playing golf. We do not talk anything about sport, we were in constant harmony, and sharing knowledge in a normal environment, "added the cagüeño boxer .
Cotto has said publicly that his career will continue to examine whether under the wing of the promoter Bob Arum, who is vacationing in Europe, or sign with another company once the agreement ends.
However, it says that the company Golden Boy Promotions, who chairs De la Hoya precisely, is keen to talk to the Puerto Rican.
Cotto has not ruled out the possibility of using him for Miguel Cotto Promotions at the same style as De la Hoya made by Golden Boy Promotions.
