Cotto Hopes To Secure Opponent Before Year's End

By Miguel Rivera

Former champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs) is hoping to finalize his next opponent before the end of 2013, according to his legal adviser Gabriel Peñagarícano. There is interest from both Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez. Gabriel Peñagarícano tells Raul Alzaga that Cotto wants to return around May of 2014.

"Our intention is to have a decision made on who [Miguel] will face before the end of 2013. Miguel is interested in fighting near the month of May in order to have a chance to do a good promotional tour," Peñagarícano said. "Canelo People are interested, but I have not been made a formal offer yet. And Cotto has also been asked about Martinez. Both are attractive fights, but there is nothing official on the table. Once we receive official offers, we will sit down to negotiate, review the terms offered and then decide [on who Miguel will face]."

Because Cotto is a free agent, Peñagarícano said the fighter can negotiate with anyone - Top Rank or Golden Boy Promotions.

"Cotto is a free agent and he can negotiate with anyone. Cotto can negotiate with whoever he wants. There is no obstacle with [negotiating with either promoter]," Penagaricano said.

[QUOTE=Koba-Grozny;13890458]Interesting. 'Nelo brings bigger $s but probably Martinez ain't so far behind and also brings a title at 160. Thing is, neither deal will come without some strings. Cotto is in a stonger bargaining position vis-a-vis Sergio, I'd guess, but…

Cotto is in the driver's seat. He can negotiate with whoever he wants so he should play Martinez and Canelo against each other. Whoever gives him the best deal is the one he should fight.

Mosley fight was great and Margarito was coming on On in The 2nd fight when they stopped it... I guess canelo would be a great competitive fight.. I'm a big cotto fight.. Do it..
