Fresh off of a resounding 3rd round TKO over Delvin Rodriguez this past weekend, Puerto Rican star and former three-division titlist Miguel Cotto’s future looks bright as he enters the final stretch of his illustrious career.

A promotional free agent, Cotto worked with his original promoter Top Rank for the Rodriguez fight after seeing bouts against Floyd Mayweather and Austin Trout in 2012 co-promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.

One of the biggest stars in all of boxing, Cotto has the luxury of picking from the most enticing matches available and he certainly seems to have some serious options floating around.

I caught up with Top Rank CEO Bob Arum at Monday’s media brunch in Los Angeles in advance of this weekend’s Timothy Bradley-Juan Manuel Marquez pay per view attraction and got his thoughts on Cotto’s choices moving forward.

This past weekend, Puerto Rican fan favorite Miguel Cotto made a resounding return to the ring by dispatching former title challenger Delvin Rodriguez in under three rounds at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fl.

Showing vintage form in what turned out to be more of a showcase bout on HBO’s airwaves as opposed to a real challenge, Cotto (38-4, 31 KO’s) ripped Rodriguez’s body early with abandon and left him dazed at the end of the second round after a whistling left hook caught his temple.

The end came moments into the third frame, as Cotto pounced on the lanky Dominican along the ropes before dropping him to the canvas with another potent left. Seconds later, referee Frank Santore Jr. would waive the contest off.

While much of the talk at the post-fight press conference and within boxing circles centered around the possibility of Cotto facing either lineal middleweight champion Sergio Martinez or Mexican superstar Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in the future, those weren’t the only big names in the play.

As reported earlier today, various reports had stated that Floyd Mayweather, fresh off of his victory over Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez last month, had selected Amir Khan as his next opponent for his return to the ring in May of 2014.

And while the news spread like wildfire on social networking sites, Team Khan have since stepped forward and denied the talks, focusing the attention to a Dec. 7 showdown with Devon Alexander.

In a statement released to BoxingScene.com, Team Khan issued the following.

Floyd Mayweather very well may be coming off of a virtuoso performance on Sept. 14 in Las Vegas, where he dominated a very dangerous Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez over twelve rounds, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a few struggles for the sport’s pound for pound king as he moves forward in his career.

Simply put, Mayweather was so sharp against Alvarez that his performance not only beguiled his 36 years of age, it also left the boxing public wondering who exactly is left on the horizon that can actually challenge him.

Sharing his thoughts on Mayweather’s latest outing, former multi-division titlist Nonito Donaire was quick to give praise.

“He’s an amazing fighter,” Donaire stated. “As much as you may not like Floyd or anything like that, Floyd has the right to brag. He has the right to say whatever he wants. Because he’s on top.”

Floyd Mayweather once again reminded the boxing world that he is the game’s premier performer by thoroughly outclassing Mexican superstar Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez this past weekend in Las Vegas.

Inside of a sold-out MGM Grand Garden Arena, Mayweather seemed to effortlessly control the action against his 23-year old foe over the course of twelve rounds. Mayweather did as he pleased on both the offensive and defensive ends before walking out of the building with a majority decision nod as well as his 45th professional victory in as many fights.

There was no one with a better view of the action as Mayweather’s father and trainer Floyd Sr.

Shortly after his son’s triumph, Floyd Sr. shared his thoughts on his performance as well as some dismay towards the 114-114 scorecard issued by judge C.J. Ross.

“I thought he did a beautiful job,” Floyd Sr. stated at the post-fight press conference. “The only thing I didn’t like is that they were talking about a draw. There’s no way in hell that could have been a draw. No way, no means, by any way.
