As expected, Puerto Rican fighter Miguel Cotto finished brief work of Daniel Geale to keep his WBC middleweight universe title.
Despite being out for about a year, Cotto clearly showed no signs of rust. He final fought on Jun 7, 2014 when he won a WBC middleweight belt from Sergio Martinez hold during a Madison Square Garden.

With a win, Cotto improves to 40-3, 33 by knockout. It was a third detriment in 5 fights for a 34-year-old Geale who is now totes a fighting record of 31-3 after a loss.
With that over and finished with, all eyes are on who Cotto will face next.
Prior to a fight, many were expecting a most awaited showdown between Cotto and Canelo ‘Saul’ Alvarez that might presumably take place after in a year.
In a prior article, it was mentioned that negotiations between Cotto and Alvarez started as early as December. Had both sides agreed, Cotto and Alvarez would have fought final May 2.
With both fighters now over and finished with their set bouts, it will be engaging if Cotto would finally lay down and accommodate Alvarez for his subsequent match.
Alvarez has his eyes on Cotto’s WBC middleweight pretension and such could manifest if Cotto’s reaction after a quarrel is to be any denote for such.
“Let’s do it,” he said. “Before that, we wish to spend some time with my family and suffer them again, though afterwards it is behind to LA and training for Canelo.”
As it stands now, Cotto could enhance his options as distant as his subsequent competition is concerned.
Quietly watching in a credentials is IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin who is undefeated and totes a 33-0 record, 30 of them entrance by KO.
Golovkin got a possibility to watch a Cotto-Geale quarrel and was flattering tender during Cotto’s triumph. Though there is no word yet, there could be a possibility a he could quarrel presumably Cotto or Alvarez next.
However, if Oscar Dela Hoya is to be believed, Golovkin could be confronting Cotto initial and Alvarez subsequent given he won’t let Canelo quarrel Golovkin during slightest for another dual years.
So could we be treated a joint quarrel if Cotto and Golovkin does materialize?
“Absolutely, yeah. Maybe a quarrel in England. Yeah, sure, maybe. A mega-fight in Germany. A mega-fight in Russia. Yeah, sure, I’m ready” says Golovkin around Fighthype. The talk can be noticed below.
Right now, it seems that a Cotto-Alvarez mega quarrel has a inside track. If negotiations tumble detached once again, Golovkin could presumably step in.
