Miguel Cotto Says He Has Plenty Left in His Tank

In early 2010, Miguel Cotto (38-4, 32KOs) announced  that when he turned 30 years old, he would be retiring from boxing. Today he is 33 years old and savoring his historic triumph from June 7th at New York's Madison Square Garden in New York, which came against Argentinian Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez.  Cotto, who captured his fourth world title in his fourth weight division, now says that he still has a lot to show inside the ring. 
 
“Miguel Cotto used to think that his boxing career would be short," mentioned the boxer referring to himself in third person. "But June 7th convinced me that there is still enough boxing skills left in Miguel Cotto."

The Puerto Rican idol, who received his WBC Middleweight belt from President Mauricio Sulaiman, said that he has not yet spoken with his team about the future fights, but he made it clear that for now he just want to enjoy this great and historic moment.

Cotto has a tentative return targeted for December in New York or Las Vegas.
