I'm liking the idea of Cotto vs Canelo also, it's a better match up than JCC jr right now as far as size is concerned. idk if canelo is ready for a mega fight just yet, so fighting cotto will be a good test to see if he's even in the ball park.....
I agreed, until you said that Canelo's not ready for a megafight, and yes, a Cotto fight would be a good test. Dude sells out Mexican arenas between 10-12k seats and he sells crazy at the Staples Center.
He's knocked out just about everybody thats been put infront of him in the lasy year and a half. Then, he's champ at 154. So no, he may not be quite ready for a megafight, but his credentials are screaming for one! Hell, this guy has fought 4 times this year alone, so he can do the same next year and confidently claim that he's ready for a mega fight.
He could very well have a few tests next year be ready for a big payday...just by his volumes of fights in a 12-month timespan. Im not sure Arum would put Cotto out there like that just yet, and besides, we still have to see what Cotto does with Margarito with this weekend...or the other way around.
