WBC middleweight champion quietly arrived back in Puerto Rico today with little fanfare at the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in Carolina. “I like to go unnoticed, get home and rest in peace,” Cotto told El Nuevo Dia.
Promoter Bob Arum stated Saturday that Cotto could return on December 6 or December 13.
HBO Sports will present the replay of Cotto-Martinez this Saturday on the live “Boxing After Dark” doubleheader from Brooklyn headlined by the WBO junior welterweight world title fight between Ruslan Provodnikov and Chris Algieri and WBO junior middleweight title fight between Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade and Brian “The Lion” Rose.
21,090 boxing fans rocked the famous Madison Square Garden in New York City for Saturday night’s fight.
Cotto had a guarantee of at least $7 million for last night’s fight. Martinez’ purse was $1.5 million + a percentage of the PPV upside.
