Gaby Peñagarícano, the adviser to WBA 154-pound champion Miguel Cotto (37-2, 30KOs), spoke to BoxingScene.com regarding the circulating rumors that his fighter is going to face Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs) in a rematch on June 9th. In their 2009 welterweight title fight, Pacquiao stopped Cotto in the twelfth round to capture the WBO title. There have not been any conversations regarding the Pacquiao rematch, says Peñagarícano. But, there is a meeting scheduled for later this week with Top Rank to discuss a potential fight involving Cotto.

"We have not had any conversations [with Top Rank] about a Manny Pacquiao fight. We are going to speak with [Top Rank's CEO] Bob Arum later this week. He wants to talk about a potential fight for Miguel, but I don't know which fight that's going to be. It might be Pacquiao, it might be [Julio Cesar] Chavez Jr., we don't know right now," Peñagarícano told BoxingScene.com.

There have been reports that Pacquiao will not fight above the welterweight limit of 147-pounds. Hypothetically, without knowing the financial details and the overall package,  Peñagarícano told BoxingScene that Cotto would not fight at the welterweight limit. Of course, as stated, that position could change depending on the terms - if Cotto is offered the fight.

"A hypothetical scenario, is that, if we were offered a fight with Pacquiao, that fight would not be at 147. We have to wait and see. Nothing can be categorical in this huge fight. We have to wait and see the entire package to see how the fighters react with their decisions on the weight. Without knowing the financial platform for the fight, it would not be at 147, from Miguel's perspective," Peñagarícano said.

[QUOTE=PAC-BOY]Cotto wants that like he wants a hole in his head. Id love to see him fight Floyd. because if he does lose...It wont be as bad as a beat down from Manny. Floyd will just be another boring win or default win. If Cotto dont smash his ass up like i d like for him to do.[/QUOTE] -...

I think this should be the deal, Cotto fights at 147...but it has to be in NYC...if the fight takes place in Las Vegas then at 154.

[QUOTE=onechance87]Going on 2 years since cotto fought at 147.I expect him to be weak and weight drained at 154.There is no reason to make this fight. I want canelo-cotto at 154.[/QUOTE] lol but cotto has said he can make 147 lbs comfortably..he made the 153 lb catchweigth without a problem ...
