|It's doubtful Cotto's next fight will generate the excitement his last one did.|
It's good to be middleweight champion of the world. It seems you can pretty much make career choices with impunity. Face a major star who wants to throw down? Nah. Go head on with the most feared individual in your division? When you get around to it.
Give Miguel Cotto this - he's not overly concerned what others think of him or his choices. After frustrating fans by forgoing potential bouts with Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin, the legendary but aging slugger has decided to settle on Daniel Geale, who Golovkin mopped the floor with last summer.
Nothing against Geale, he's a talented guy and a game one, to boot. This is not the bout fans want to watch, however. It will be interesting to see how the ratings are for HBOs live broadcast of the fight on June 6th. Indeed, Cotto's recent comments are most likely not generating a whole lot of excitement for the throwdown.
"I had to wait sometimes in my career for my opportunities," the Puerto Rican legend said. "Canelo has to do the same. Golovkin has to do the same."
And there you have it.
"Just sit, be calm, and wait you turn," Cotto added.
