Cotto vs. Pacquiao
By Dan Ambrose: Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30 KO’s) recently turned down a whopping $13 million to fight Manny Pacquiao at a catchweight of 150 lbs, according to Dan Rafael of ESPN. Instead of fighting Pacquiao for big money, Cotto will be taking on WBA World junior middleweight champion Austin Trout for considerably less than that. […]
By John F. McKenna (McJack): Former World Boxing Association (WBA) junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30 KO’s) is one of the fighters under consideration to take on eight division champion Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KO’s). A Cotto – Pacquiao rematch makes sense. Cotto’s boxing career received a shot in the arm when he stopped […]
By Chris Williams: Junior middleweight Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30 KO’s) is one of the two fighters that Bob Arum is strongly considering to put in with his fighter Manny Pacquiao on November 10th. Cotto brings in the money on pay per view due to his large fan base, and he puts backsides in the seats […]
By Chris Williams: Former WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto is one of the remaining big three opponents that Bob Arum has hand picked for Manny Pacquiao to choose from for his November 10th fight in Las Vegas, Nevada. Arum really likes the idea of Pacquiao fighting Cotto again because of the potential pay per […]
By Mark Havey: A rematch is presently being talked about between Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, KO’s 38) and Miguel Cotto (37-3, KO’s 30). I don’t see much point as Pacquiao destroyed Cotto in 2009. If Cotto wasn’t in his prime then, he certainly isn’t now. In his last the popular Puerto Rican lost to Floyd Mayweather […]
By Chris Williams: I’m going to make a prediction and I’m dead certain that’s going to come true. Manny Pacquiao will not be fighting Miguel Cotto next on November 10th. Cotto won’t get the fight and will be bypassed for a lesser threat and a lighter puncher like Tim Bradley.
By Allen Fox: Despite the talk of Timothy Bradley being the likely next opponent for WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao to fight on June 9th, fellow Top Rank fighter Miguel Cotto (37-2, 30 KO’s) still remains very much alive in the hunt for the Pacquiao fight.
By Chris Williams: Victor Ortiz is solidly behind Manny Pacquiao in him being able to call the shots for a rematch with Miguel Cotto, according to examiner.com. Cotto is standing firm in not wanting to drain down from his fighting weight of 154 all the way to 147.
By Dan Ambrose: With Floyd Mayweather Jr. asking for the lion’s share of the revenue for a fight against Manny Pacquiao, it looks like the mega fight between them is off for now at least until possibly November.
By Chris Williams: Since it seems painfully obviously that WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto isn’t going to give Manny Pacquiao any more weight advantages so he can beat him again like he did last time they fought at a strength draining 145 pound catchweight, Pacquiao is going to have to agree to fight Cotto […]
By Chris Williams: If Miguel Cotto wants the big money rematch with Manny Pacquiao that he’s been after since getting thrashed by him in 2009, Cotto will likely have to play it by Pacquiao’s rules by coming all the way down to 147lbs rather than the Filipino star agreeing to fight him at a catchweight […]
By Allen Fox: According to article from Chris Robinson at examiner.com, promoter/advisor Sampson Lewkowicz is saying that Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto IS going to be the next fight for both of them. However, he Lewkowcicz points out that the weight for the fight is an issue for Cotto because he can’t get down to […]

By Dan Ambrose: Michael Marley of examiner.com sees Miguel Cotto being the next opponent for Manny Pacquiao to fight on June 9th, as the negotiations between Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. haven’t gone beyond Mayweather contacting Pacquiao by the telephone to tell him he’s not getting a 50-50 deal. Supposedly there won’t be any catchweight […]
