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.

If I was Cotto's promoter or manager I would have him comeback in October or December of this year against K9 for the IBF 154 pound title in New York and then next year on the night before the PR…

[QUOTE=PiXelElite;12114934]Canelo is still too green to fight Cotto... Canelo is not beating Cotto at this point.[/QUOTE] Canelo claimed Cotto was a cherry pick for Mayweather choosing to fight cotto over him and he deserves an ass beating just for that.
