MIGUEL COTTO is hoping to make the first defence of his world middleweight title in December with Julio Cesar Chavez Jnr and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez being mentioned as possible opponents.

The Puerto Rican legend, 33, revitalised his career, and then some, when he stopped Sergio Martinez in June. Now trained by Freddie Roach, Cotto, currently on vacation, is keen to enhance an already impressive legacy in the twilight of his career.

“I’m enjoying my last victory and most of all waiting to see what happens in my career,” Cotto said to ESPN Deportes. “There are many possible names, such as Canelo and Chavez, but there again, we are still waiting. This is business. We will ensure the best option for Miguel Cotto. But it is a fact that the Mexico-Puerto Rican rivalry can be rekindled.”
