Miguel Cotto Eyes Year-End Return, 2 or 3 More Years
By Jhonny Gonzalez
Former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30KOs) is planning to return before the end of the year. Last Saturday in Las Vegas, Cotto lost a very competitive twelve round decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs). Cotto, 31-years-old, had once promised to retire by age 30, but after last weekend's performance he believes his career can possibly continue for another two to three years.
Cotto plans to rest for a few weeks and then he'll begin making plans for his next fight.
"I feel that it was my best performance. After this fight, I feel that I can go for two or three years more,' said Cott. Everything was part of [trainer Pedro Diaz's plan], which could be the reason we were able to do [that performance] and more," Cotto told Jose Sanchez.
There are a lot of good possible match up at 154. Cotto could fight Alvarez, Kirkland or Lara.Comment by ChiTown2Diego on 05-12-2012
