Cotto To Return on 12/6 or 12/13 at MSG or Vegas

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32KOs) will return to action on December 6th or December 13th, according to Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum. Cotto will be back at New York's Madison Square Garden or a venue in Las Vegas. The Puerto Rican fighter made history on Saturday night at MSG, when he stopped Sergio Martinez in ten rounds to become the first boxer from Puerto Rico to win four world titles in four weight divisions.

"We have nothing definite, we'll talk about it soon, but it is best to return on December 6th or the 13th, here in the Garden or is Las Vegas if the opponent is a Mexican," said Arum.

There are many options for Cotto, with former WBC/WBA 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez as one of the biggest fights to be made, should Canelo defeat Erislandy Lara on July 12th in Las Vegas.

Erislandy Lara will School Canelo but the Judges will Screw Lara to Make Canelo vs Cotto on December

People seem to ignore that Canelo is fighting LARA. Which is a fight i don't see him winning but his chances are good.

[QUOTE=Journeyman;14644368]Cotto beats up Canelo.[/QUOTE] I don't know . . . Canelo is young, strong and fresh. He is no broken down faded champion. This might be the best fight for Cotto as it is winnable and would do big numbers…
