Roach: Cotto's Top Choice is Canelo, GGG Possible

By Edward Chaykovsky

Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach sat ringside at New York's Madison Square Garden, watching WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27KOs) drill Daniel Geale in three one-sided rounds.

After the match, Golovkin said a unification with WBC champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32KOs), who Roach trains, is his top selection at the weight.

"I want unification fights. I want Miguel Cotto. I think this is the best fight for the fans, good for everyone," Golovkin said.

That fight appears distant, even with Roach leaving the possibility open. The fight Cotto wants most, says Roach, is Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (44-1-1, 31KOs). Cotto returns on a date in December, but no opponent has been determined.

“HBO signed Golovkin to a six fight deal and they’re in love with him. The number one choice for Cotto right now, is we’d like to fight Canelo Alvarez but GGG could be next for us," Roach said.
