    Arum said if Canelo gets passed Lara. Him and Oscar want to do a Canelo vs Cotto fight.

    Good boxing continue to come to the fans.

    Canelo vs Cotto would be a killer fight and would no doubt sell over one million PPVs. While I think Canelo would have the edge, if Cotto somehow pulled off the win, the man would no doubt be greater than Trinidad when it comes to Puerto Rican greats. Cotto would be a fool not to retire with a Canelo win and seal his place in boxing history.

    Arum can say what he likes - he's not Cotto's promoter. Cotto wouldn't even need him to make this fight, so I'm not sure how it ends the "cold war" - especially as Haymon & Schaefer still won't be working with Arum.

    Until Cotto himself announces he wants such a fight, I doubt it happens.

    Cotto has an excellent relationship with Todd Debuof which is why Tr pushes Cotto promotions like GB did for Mayweather promotions.

    Canelo is exclusively to oscar and GB.

    If the fight gets made, first tr and GB event in a long time.

    Cotto still doesn't need TR to make this fight, as he's a promotional free agent. The reason Arum wants to be involved is he'd get a cheque; doesn't mean he has any promotional rights to either fighter.

    Cotto is a smart businessman. He'll likely wait for a few months and see what offer is best for him - fighting Canelo (Golden Boy) or fighting Floyd (Floyd/Haymon/Schaefer). What fights Bob Arum wants to make won't be a factor.

    Canelo vs Cotto would be a more even fight and the Mexican vs Puerto Ricans fans would push the ppv past 1 mil buys.

    I love Cotto but he would lose to Floyd again and would get less money and share fighting Floyd where he is the a side against Canelo.

    That's a big IF, since I have a feeling Lara gets the better of Canelo.

    I'm actually more interested in seeing a fight between GGG and Cotto.

    None of that means that the fight is even close to bring made. Nor are you privvy to what Cotto would be offered from either party.

    Nobody even remotely criticised him. I'm sorry that pointing out that he's not Cotto's promoter is somehow seen as being negative in your eyes.

    Arum wants to make this fight! Yay! Praise Arum!



    Better?

    Yea I think that's the fight to make IF Canelo gets by my boy which I strongly doubt that will happen.

    That's why I said the Canelo vs. Lara is now officially the most important fight of the year.

    Cabelo is already technically a mw since now his last two fights have been at 155.

    Him and Cotto for the mw crown would sell too well and make too much sense. Rooting for Canelo in his bout against Lara.

    Is it possible to sell too well? :p

    Regardless of whether his last few fights have been arranged for 155lbs, Canelo is a middleweight; he was far from a small light middleweight.
