Miguel Cotto To Take a Few Months Off, Ponder Return

By Jhonny Gonzalez

For now Miguel Cotto (37-4, 30KOs) is only focused on his promotional company. The Puerto Rican star is not thinking about fighting at the moment. He plans to take a few months off, with an announcement on his future to come at some point in 2013.

Cotto lost a twelve round unanimous decision to unbeaten Austin Trout earlier this month. EVen with the loss the Puerto Rican boxer is said to be under consideration as a possible opponent for WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. He does intend to continue working with his coach Pedro Diaz.

"I'm going to take a few months off. Boxing is out of the picture for now. I'll make an announcement when we have something planned. We do not know (when), things are going to be discussed later. At the moment, (I'll) celebrate and enjoy Christmas," said Cotto.

I think Cotto needs to take some time off. It was a his choice to fight Trout. Thats the thing I like about Cotto he likes to challenge himself in the ring. I wish a lot of these boxers would…

I think Cotto has got one more fight left in him, and it would be great to see him retire on a win

[QUOTE=RossCA;12838902]He needs to come to the realization that he is not the fighter he used to be. Either retire or fight guys you can beat. Canelo will hurt this guy bad right now.[/QUOTE] Trolololol Cotto would outbox Cinnabum.
