    Exclamation Gennady Golovkin vs Miguel Cotto

    Gennady Golovkin wants to get back inside the ring in December
    To defend his middleweight titles rather than sit and wait until May of 2018
    To face Saul Alvarez. One option for Golovkin’s December fight is Miguel Cotto
    He’s supposed to be retiring after December, and he’s looking for a big fight...

    Negative article because his would be a big fight. It would likely take place in Madison Square Garden. Yoshihiro Kamegai would actually be perfect preparation as he was a naturally larger man who just kept coming forward and provided nonstop pressure (albeit with inferior offense) I know people will write Cotto off because of his size but he is a world class fighter and he would give GGG issues for as long as he holds up under the pressure. Another option would be Jacobs but I think we all know that GGG wouldn’t risk a rematch with Alvarez fighting Jacobs in December.

    GGG should just fight Saunders and collect the other title which stops Canelo doing anything at middleweight.

    Cotto would be a second option but no catchweight.

    Canelo fighting twice a year is a joke.

    Sad that Cotto is retiring, hell of a career....I'd like to see him go out a winner, but if he fights GGG that ain't happening.

    GGG should fight Jacobs or Saunders

    Saunders is boring and nobody cares about the WBO title. Canelo has already won the WBC belt along with the lineal championship at 160. If GGG is too small to meet Ward at 168 then he can surely lose a few pounds and meet Cotto at 158 or whatever weight Cotto decides (he's the draw)

    Cotto is not the draw or A side fighter no longer. I respect Cotto but he avoided GGG just as Canelo did when they stutter at interviews saying how they would fight GGG but never did. Canelo was put in a corner and had to fight.

    Cotto should fight someone at light middle and defend his title and retire.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Cotto has taken a lot of punishment in career.

    He needs to edge away into retirement perhaps facing Kell Brook in the U.K for a big payday.

    He will never fight GGG and will only get more of a hiding from Canelo in the rematch.

    @imp he's not coming to the UK, he'll probably close out his career in New York. It could be Brook or Khan but I think it's most likely going to be a rubber match with Margarito. He beats all three for me.

    @Master the problem is there are no names at 154. Guys like Lara, Andrade and Charlo are all high risk and low reward so he'll be hoping somebody from 147 moves up (Khan, Brook, Garcia) if not we'll likely get a third fight with Margarito.

    I can't stand Margarito.

    Why on earth has he not been banned for life?!

    I would like to see it. Cotto claims he wants a big fight and GGG needs to stay busy. It would be another name on his resume. What is not to like? It isn't as though there is an age difference or anything like that. Cotto has fought at MW against a crippled Martinez, now how about he face off against a healthy strong MW?

    Someone trying to get Cotto permanently injured? There is a reason Cotto never ventured to 'legit' middleweight and it's because he knows his limitations at this point. Cotto has been eyeing the exit door after a great career for some time and has stated again December is it for him. Respects to him but honestly it's a step sideways at the least for Golovkin after majority of fans, save for some , had him beating the man in Canelo who himself already beat the same Cotto convincingly. Cotto is a 'name' but Golovkin has new exposure after Saturday and needs go forward on his own terms. Golovkin should camp out on the lawn of Saunders and hope to speed up rematch with Canelo. Or do something absolutely nutty like fight one of his mandatories like Charlo.

    I'd like to see Cotto make a final run at 154 where many top guys are sorting each other out soon. Here's a crazy idea...if..there's that word again..Trout beats Hurd and grabs his strap Cotto tries for redemption and walks into the sunset as champion, not a stepping stone scalp.

    Absolute garbage fight. Cotto is way too small and is way way past his best. It's also garbage for a rematch between GGG and Canelo to wait a year instead of doing it in December. No reason for a stay busy fight.

    It's a better fight than Kell Brook and as a stay busy it makes sense from a GGG perspective. A name, staying active and maybe another comparable Canelo opponent. However, from a Cotto point of view it probably seems like hard work and it doesn't seem like he wants any of that.

    It's only a name. The Brook fight wasn't a great pick but st least he was known by most as the best welterweight in the world at the time. Much better than Cotto is at the moment.

    Cotto said he wants a big fight and that's the biggest out there for him. If he is really done by the end of the year it's short notice.

    With Pac out maybe Cotto could travel and fight Horn at a CW. I think that could be fun.
