Miguel Cotto vs Austin Trout News and Latest Updates
WBA Super Welterweight title - HBO PPV
December 1, 2012 - New York Madison Square Garden, USA
Former WBA Super light middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30 KO’s) has announced on his twitter that he’ll be challenging unbeaten WBA World light middleweight champion Austin Trout (25-0, 14 KO’s) for his title on December 1st at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Cotto lost his version of the 154-pound world title to Mayweather at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in the year's biggest fight. It generated an astonishing 1.5 million pay-per-view buys.
Although Cotto lost a unanimous decision, he gave Mayweather, widely considered the world's No. 1 fighter pound-for-pound, one of the toughest fights of his career.
Cotto had been planning to return to action on Dec. 1 at the Garden, where he has been a huge draw for years because of his immense popularity in the Puerto Rican community.
He emerged as one of three possible opponents in the running for a fight with Pacquiao, who also is considering frontrunner Juan Manuel Marquez (for a fourth fight) and Timothy Bradley Jr. for a rematch of their highly controversial fight in June. Pacquiao knocked Cotto out in a 2009 welterweight world title fight.
