A second bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Miguel Cotto might be held on December 1 in Madison Square Garden in New York following the success of the first meeting. Cotto himself mentioned that date for a possible return in 2012 and rejected an offer to fight on September 15 against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, who is without an opponent after injuries to Paul Williams and Victor Ortiz. Cotto was in New York City approximately three weeks ago as were those who handle Mayweather Jr., who is currently serving an 87 day sentence in a Las Vegas jail. If Floyd gets out by September, they would be ready to fight on the coast East where Cotto is an idol. And as The Sport Press reported on May 14, the economic success and the closeness of the first fight, where the ‘Money’ praised Cotto, makes a second fight viable. According to a credible source, the date of December 1 is already reserved at the Garden.
