Arum: Miguel Cotto May Have Sold More Than Ali at MSG

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum has appointed WBA 154-pound champion Miguel Cotto as the king of New York's Madison Square Garden. The 80-year-old promoter believes Cotto, among his seven appearances at MSG, has sold more tickets at the venue than heavyweight legends Muhammad Ali or Joe Frazier. This Saturday, for Cotto's rematch with Mexican rival Antonio Margarito, a complete sellout is once again expected with less than 300 tickets remaining. The venue holds a max of 20,080 fans for boxing.

"It's amazing how the fans are anticipating this fight, "Arum said. "In fact, I think Cotto should have the record for most tickets sold at Madison Square Garden since the late 60's. I don't think Muhammad Ali or Joe Frazier or anyone else have sold more [than Cotto in MSG]. Madison Square Garden seems to be his second home."

Bob Arum is the Mitt Romney of the boxing community. He has flip-flopped more more than a quarter at kickoff.
