Junior middleweight contender Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs) is waiting, and hoping, that former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 21KOs) agrees to fight him in the main event of a Showtime Pay-Per-View card on March 8th. Golden Boy Promotions offered Cotto a $10 million dollar deal to take the fight. The other option for Cotto is a chance to capture his fourth divisional title against WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez, but the money involved in that deal is reportedly only worth $5 million dollars in terms of the guarantee.

Jose "Chepo" Reynoso, Alvarez's manager, hopes a deal can be worked out in the next few days.

"Saul is the best choice for Cotto. Money is money and ultimately everyone looks for the best purses and the best options. [Canelo] is a great option. The truth is, I think no one can offer [Cotto] more. It's a great deal and it speaks volumes that Golden Boy Promotions is doing things right. They delivered what they promised. We want that fight. We gave our list of opponents and Cotto is one of them. Golden Boy threw the hook and pulled the net to get him. The important thing is that Cotto says yes so we can define other things. We have the March date, while Martinez, as we have heard, we do not know when he will be ready," said Reynoso.

[QUOTE=BendOver]I did respond to you, and even without looking at their record I have to say that by the time he was 22-24 years old he had already fought guys like Bailey, Corley, Torres, Maussa, Bazan, Juuko, Sosa, Ndou, etc... and won, almost everyone of them in their prime and in the same wei...

[QUOTE=pvj]Ok, so my last statement was subjective, however, my first two points were not: Are you saying that Cotto's resume at the of 23 is better than that of Canelo's? Furthermore, are you also saying that Canelo didn't beat the man who beat Cotto last? *Tic toc ....Please res...

Very winnable fight for Cotto with the right gameplan and dedication to the body attack.

comment by BendOver, on 11-17-2013
[QUOTE=pvj]^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ becuase he beat the same man that beat Cotto last! A few of you are borderline brain dead. I'm not a Canelo fan, however, 1) This "hype job" has a much more impressive resume at the age of 23 than did your "future hall of famer." (Joe Perez, Cesar...
