Marquez's Trainer Likes Idea of Miguel Cotto Fight at 150

By Salvador Rodriguez

Hall of Fame trainer Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain, who works with former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez (56-7-1, 40KOs), likes the idea of a super-fight with Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32KOs), who is also a four division world champion and currently holds the WBC title at 160-pounds. But Nacho only likes that fight if a reasonable catch-weight is agreed upon.

Cotto captured the WBC title in June with a stoppage of Sergio Martinez. The Puerto Rican star practically weighed in as a junior middleweight for the match, coming in at 155-pounds.

"For me it would be a sensational fight, both are equipped with a high school in boxing technique," Nacho said. "I've always viewed Cotto as one of the most technical fighters today, beyond what he's done with Freddie Roach and everyone knows that Marquez is a the best fighter from Mexico to take part in the art. It would be a great fight."

"We would have to reach a good agreement [regarding the weight]. To fight at 150-pounds does not seem bad, or even a little less."

At 150, JMM hurts Cotto.

Comment by Iceta Lives on 09-04-2014

JMM would kill Cotto, but if it happened nobody would give him credit and say Cotto was weight drained. Cotto is getting all hyped up by beating Martinez who was handicapped like a mug. I hate to rain on the…
