Miguel Cotto Wants More, Not Thinking of Retirement
By Jhonny Gonzalez
A few years ago, former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30KOs) promised to retire by the age of 30. On October 29th, Cotto turns 32 and he has no desire to retire in the near future.
"We have not thought about it [retirement]. I said I was retiring at 30 and here I am continuing, almost at 32 years...with a lot of energy. I'm eager to keep fighting, with renewed energy, as you saw in the last fight on May 5 [against Floyd Mayweather]," Cotto told Paul Maldonado.
"When I say I will [retire], I will, and I will not return, which is why I'm still in the game."
Cotto faces junior middleweight champion Austin Trout on December 1 at Madison Square Garden in New York. If he wins, he could face Golden Boy promoted boxer Saul "Canelo" Alvarez of Mexico.
"We have an excellent relationship with Golden Boy. They have treated us very well, we would say even better than we expected," Cotto said.
"All of this will be viewed in 2013. We are focused on Austin Trout on December 1 in New York. After that we will have the opportunity to sit down and talk about these things."
Haters are going to hate on Cotto all day and all night. He got this fight vs Trout and will beat on the Ginger boy...! Saving all my eCash for the Cotto vs Ginger bout!!!!Comment by Grimgash on 10-24-2012
[QUOTE=Bronerobron;12632625]Thats how a warrior does it floyd. Not using retirement as a means to duck a whole division. Stupid coward.[/QUOTE] Ironic that he won a rather lop sided division against Cotto though, at a weight class he has no business…Comment by GUEVARA on 10-23-2012

[QUOTE=DigitalBeast;12630474]That word is short for "you are". Now read what you typed...:dunce: Good enough if English isn't well known to you... I'd want to see Cotto in there against Saul. That would likely be quite a fight.[/QUOTE] You're a funny…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (36)
