Miguel Cotto vs. Delvin Rodriguez Heading To Florida
By Rick Reeno
According to sources with knowledge of the details, former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (37-4, 30KOs) will return against junior middleweight contender Delvin Rodriguez (28-6-3, 16KOs) in a venue in Florida. The fight will be televised by HBO and co-promoted by Top Rank. This will be Cotto's first fight with Top Rank since his contract expired on December 31, 2011.
Cotto's last two fights, against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Austin Trout, were co-promoted by Golden Boy Promotions. In both of those contests Cotto lost competitive twelve round decisions. A new addition to Cotto's team is veteran trainer Freddie Roach. Cotto was recently being trained by Cuban coach Pedro Diaz.
Rodriguez won his last two fights after dropping a twelve round decision to Austin Trout last year. In his last fight, Rodriguez stopped Freddy Rodriguez in the eight round of an ESPN televised fight on May 24th.

It seems like Cotto needs someone like Serhiy Fedchenko, or like Likar Ramos so people around here are satisfied with his opposition. A top 15 SWW/JRMW/LMW is not good anymore. Or some smaller fighter coming up in weight.Comment by Evil Abed on 07-08-2013
Good comeback fight. Better than K9 and a step below Molina. Should be fun to watch.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (91)
