  • Comments Thread For: Cotto Offered Over $10 Million For Canelo in March

    Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer has advised that an offer "in excess of $10 million dollars" was presented to former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (38-4 32KOs), for a Showtime Pay-Per-View battle on March 8th against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs).

    Schaefer had a meeting with Cotto and his team on Tuesday, where they discussed several topics - including the mega-match with Cabelo.

    Cotto, a promotional free agent, worked with Golden Boy for both of his 2012 fights - against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Austin Trout. For his last fight, against Delvin Rodriguez on October 5th, Cotto worked with Top Rank.

    "The main topic of discussion was a potential Canelo fight. I made him a very lucrative offer, eight figures...well in excess of $10 million dollars. He said he is going to let me know what he decides to do. I told him it could be a one fight deal or a series of fights, whatever he wants to do," Shcaefer told

      I don't know if he would even make half of that with Martinez. He should take it. I bet Schaefer basically told Cotto he has to stay with GBP for the remainder of his career though.

            Take the money Cotto! It's great payday and its a fight you could possibly win. I think with his market value the Martinez fight will always be there, unless Sergio retires of course.

                  Hopefully this gets made..

                  With Canelo fighting Lara/Trout winner if they're still be coming off a win. (If Canelo wins)

                  Or Cotto taking another shot at Mayweather. (If Cotto wins)
