Gaby Peñagarícano, the legal adviser to WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto, does not expect his fighter to face Timothy Bradley in December - mostly due to the weight issue. There have been no conversations at the moment, says Peñagarícano, but the potential match has been mentioned by Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum.
Peñagarícano is also the legal adviser to Bradley and he doesn't see the boxer making a decision to fight above 147-pounds, at least right now, and he certainly doesn't see Cotto fighting at a catch-weight below 154-pounds.
"Nobody has approached us to discuss Timothy Bradley. I know what Bob has stated, but we have not spoken with him about it or with [Top Rank President] Todd DuBoef. The truth is, we have not even discussed that. I don't know if that fight makes sense. I do not see Timothy fighting above 147-pounds and there is even [less of a chance] that Cotto will fight below 154-pounds," Peñagarícano told Carlos Narvaez.
