While at yesterday’s media brunch in Los Angeles advance of this weekend’s welterweight title clash between WBO champion Tim Bradley and Mexico City’s Juan Manuel Marquez, Top Rank CEO Bob Arum discussed the future options of Puerto Rico’s Miguel Cotto.

This past weekend in Orlando, Fl., Cotto returned to HBO’s airwaves with a scintillating stoppage over Delvin Rodriguez in the third round. Cotto was in rare form, as he ripped the Dominican’s body relentlessly while breaking him down with sharp, powerful blows.

After having two fights co-promoted by Golden Boy Promotions in 2012, Cotto returned to work with Top Rank, his original promoter dating back to his pro debut in 2001, for the Rodriguez match and it looks like a strong possibility that he will finish his career with the company.

Arum seemed extremely upbeat when discussing Cotto’s options, pointing towards a match with lineal middleweight champion Sergio Martinez in particular as a fight worth making. Arum also discussed the possibility of a showdown with former junior middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

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.

On Wednesday afternoon, Puerto Rican star and three-division world champion Miguel Cotto held an open media workout with his trainer Freddie Roach inside of a newly-renovated gym right beneath the famed Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles.

A promotional free agent and one of the biggest attractions in the sport, Cotto is again working with his original promoter Top Rank ahead of his Oct. 5 date against former title challenger Delvin Rodriguez.

Cotto vs. Rodriguez isn’t looked at as the most enticing of matchups on paper, and that’s why much of the talk at the open workout seemed to center around Cotto’s options moving forward.

Mexican superstar Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez is coming off of a one-sided majority decision loss to Floyd Mayweather this past weekend in Las Vegas, yet he still remains one of the biggest names in the sport and could make for an attractive opponent for Cotto next year.
