K9: Miguel Cotto Should Fight Me Next, Not Chavez Jr.

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com recently caught up with IBF junior middleweight champion Cornelius "K9" Bundrage.  K9 last fought in June when he outpointed Sechew Powell in St. Louis, MO.  The former Contender Series star said that he was impressed with Miguel Cotto's recent TKO win over Antonio Margarito.

"Cotto fougth a great fight.  I was happy for him.  We all know what Margarito did in the first fight so I am happy that he was able to get the win," stated Bundrage.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has been mentioned as a viable option to be Cotto's next opponent. The Puerto Rican star would have to move up in weight to face The Son of the legend. Bundrage thinks that a move up to middleweight would be a mistake at this stage in Cotto's career.  He thinks that Cotto would be much better served facing him in a unification fight.
 
"Cotto should fight me next.  Guys like Chavez are a lot bigger than him at middleweight," stated Bundrage.  "I know Mexico and Puerto Rico makes a big fight but he should fight me.  I am his size and I am an older fighter.  At this stage of his career he needs to choose his opponents carefully.  He shouldn't get in there with a real young guy.  Plus if he beats me the Chavez fight is still there for him," he continued.

The Detroit, Michigan native plans on being more active next year.  He is would like to unify titles with of his fellow junior middleweight champions.

"Cotto, Canelo (Alvarez), any of those guys I will fight.  I want to fight the champions and unify.  All roads lead to K9.  All unifications lead to K9.  2012 is going to be a big year for me.  The big fights are coming," Bundrage predicted.

Bundrage finished our conversation by wishing everyone a happy holiday season.
 
"I want to wish all the fans a Merry Christmas and Happy New years.  Keep God first and remember don't bark if you can't bite!"
