ACCORDING to a report by USA Today Sports, a match between former multiple division world champion, Miguel Cotto (40-5, 33 KOs), and former super lightweight belt-holder, Lamont Peterson (34-3-1, 17 KOs), is under serious consideration.

If it were any other year, the rumors surrounding this fight would be shocking. But, alas, it is 2016, the year in which middleweights fight welterweights and awkward match-ups have become the norm.

The Puerto Rican future hall-of-famer was connected to Yuriorkis Gamboa earlier in the summer but that buzz was quickly silenced by a spokesperson from the Cotto camp.
