Miguel Cotto Won't Rule Out Mayweather, Canelo, Chavez

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (37-2, 30KOs) is officially a free agent. The Puerto Rican star's contract with Top Rank expired on December 31st. Cotto is sizing up his options for 2012 and he doesn't rule out any of the possibilities. Cotto is planning to continue working with Top Rank, likely without a contract, on a fight by fight basis.

Some of the possible options could include WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr., and even a rematch with Manny Pacquiao, the WBO's welterweight champion who stopped Cotto in the tweflth round of their 2009 bout.

"I do not rule out any of those fights. We have always been open to big names, big challenges, and all of these fights are major challenges. We'll see what offers the new year brings, and we'll review them, analyze them and then make the best decision," said Cotto to Jose Sanchez.

[QUOTE=thoughtsss;11624976]If Martinez fights like he did against Barker, I doubt it. Cotto should take the fight with Saul and after he beats him then move on to a Floyd or Manny rematch.[/QUOTE] Fam, Cotto ain't beating Sergio Martinez.

[QUOTE=PRking718;11626010]^^^^ THIS Cotto is IMHO, the best at 154 right now. Who beats him? Canelo who struggled on Gomez? And who looks like more of a beast bc of his comp, not that he probably isnt one, but we'd all…
