Miguel Cotto Would Not Rule Out a Sergio Martinez Fight

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30KOs) is focused on one thing - the December 1st title fight with WBA "regular" champion Austin Trout (25-0, 14KOs) at Madison Square Garden in New York City. To Cotto, a former champion in three weight divisions, it was very important to put himself in position to end the year as a world champion.

"For me the most important thing was to end the year with the hope of getting a new title and that's what I aspire to do. I have a huge motivation to get back in the ring to prove that I can go back to being a champion for the fifth time in my career," Cotto said.

"All I want is to be a world champion again. We're going to do it on December 1, and after that we will rest for a while and discuss what may be a new year full of positive things.

If everything goes as planned in December, one boxer who wants to fight Cotto is WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (50-2-2, 28KOs), who doesn't have a problem moving down to 154-pounds.

"Sergio Martinez is one of several possibilities before us. After Trout, we can discuss which [opportunity] is the most appropriate. If it's Sergio Martinez, I will surely have no problem facing him," Cotto said.
