Top Rank CEO Bob Arum has advised that Miguel Cotto will return to the ring on December 13th at Madison Square Garden and that his opponent will be finalized next week. 

"Cotto will actually be returning to the ring on December 13th at MSG. Todd (duBoef) is meeting with Cotto next week and they will finalize his opponent," Arum told BoxingScene.

Arum confirmed that former 154 lb. champ Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez is not in the running to face Cotto in December, though a fight they will aggressively explore next spring.

"Canelo isn't an option for December but a fight in May is certainly a possibility," said Arum. 

Cotto last fought in June when he upset WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez and became the first Puerto Rican fighter to capture a world title in 4 weight classes.

[QUOTE=Hyacinth]Always wanted to see a Cotto-Marquez match-up. Wonder if this is a possibility/fair match-up? I've got my money on Marquez if they were around the same weight. at 154, Marquez gives Cotto serious problems.[/QUOTE] By problems you mean which punch to kill Marquez with? Even roid...
