The three-time world champion Miguel Cotto (37-4, 20 KO’s), who allegedly agreed with trainer Freddie Roach will return to action on October 5 in a feature that could be a co-promotion of his company Miguel Cotto Promotions and Top Rank. Cotto is expected to begin training in August in Florida. He began his career with Top Rank, but a few years ago decided to become a free agent and promote his own fights.
His opponent has not been named but names mentioned include Vanes Martirosyan (32-0-1, 21 KOs), Demetrius Andrade (19-0, 13 KOs), Erislandy Lara (18-1-2, 12 KOs) and Sergey Rabchenko (23-0, 17 KOs) without discarding Zaurbek Baysangurov (28-1, 20 KOs), the 154-pound champion in the WBO, and Carlos Molina (21-5-2 and 6 KOs).
The fight could be televised by HBO although Showtime is still in the running and New York City will be the location.
