Miguel Cotto To Be Ringside To Watch Chavez Jr Up Close

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto will travel to Los Angeles, California in the coming days to attend the middleweight showdown between WBC champion Sebastion Zbik and mandatory challenger Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., which happens on June 4 at Staples Center. If Chavez Jr. wins, he is the frontrunner opponent to face Cotto in the fall. The Puerto Rican champion was going to fight Antonio Margarito in a rematch, but the Mexican fighter is still recovering from a serious eye injury that was suffered in last year's bout with Manny Pacquiao.

"Margarito is waiting for some medical studies, but Miguel is not going to wait on him. We are going to travel to the fight with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on June 4 and we'll see what happens," said Cotto's legal advisor, attorney Gabriel Peñagaricano, to Carlos Narvaez. "After this fight on June 4, I can say that the picture will be clearer. I'm not saying that we'll fight the winner of that fight, but we'll see things more clearly and won't overlook anything. We are confident that in a couple of weeks we'll know more [about Miguel's next fight]. Currently Miguel is not training to fight, but he is being active in the gym."
