An announcement on Miguel Cotto’s next fight could be soon
Miguel Cotto may actually fight this year.
Michael Yormark, president of Roc Nation Sports, said that arrangements are being made to get Cotto, who hasn’t fought since last November, in the ring in 2016 and that an announcement could be soon. Cotto (40-5, 33 knockouts) was eyeing a summer return but the right opponent couldn’t be found.
“We are hoping to have Miguel back in the ring before the end of the year,” Yormark said on a conference call on Tuesday. “We are working on that now. We are hopefully going to have some type of announcement over the next couple of weeks.”
Juan Manuel Marquez has been mentioned as a possible opponent but issues with weight have complicated those plans. Yormark declined to go into specifics as to who is being considered for the 35-year-old, four-time champion. “We are looking at a couple of opponents,” he said. “But I think it’s too early to disclose who we’re talking to.”
