By Rick Reeno

Former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (37-4, 30KOs) has no interest in moving back down to the welterweight division. A few days ago on BoxingScene Radio, Cotto's new trainer Freddie Roach made a statement that his boxer would likely do better at 147 than entertaining a move in weight to pursue a world title at 160-pounds.

Cotto moved up to junior middleweight in June of 2010. He takes his sixth fight at the weight on October 4th at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida - against rugged Delvin Rodriguez (28-6-3, 16KOs). Should Cotto win, there is the possibility of a 2014 encounter with WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez.

"I'm not interested in 147 at all or coming down [in weight]. I feel great at 154, I'm working great at 154, I'm doing what I'm suppossed to do at 154. The problems at 147, as everybody knows, it was very difficult for me [to make the weight]. I don't want that to happen to me again, so 154 is where I'll stay," Cotto said.

I always knew that Cotto could no longer make the 147 lbs weight class. That's why he turned down that rematch with Manny Pacquiao last year, after requesting a catch weight of a 150 lbs, because he had outgrown the division. He is larger than what many fight fans are lead to believe. Many are er...
