Cotto talks Roc Nation partnership, eyes big name opponent

Puerto Rican Miguel Angel Cotto gave an impression jump this Wednesday on a flash trip to New York. The reason was for announcing his alliance with the Roc Nation Sports, property of the rapper Jay Z, who made his debut in boxing last January 10th organizing an event at the Madison Square Garden theater.

Cotto, who is currently a Promoter and World Boxing Council middleweight Champion, will officially combine with Jay Z to promote several events during this year. The jewel in the crown will be the defense of his title, which is not yet scheduled.

“We are where we are best treated,” Cotto explained in an exclusive to the Puerto Rican Newspaper EL VOCERO. This is an alliance between Miguel Cotto Promotions and Rock Nation that goes beyond my career as boxer. We are working to settle the dates in America and Puerto Rico. It is an alliance to spread boxing.”

Concerning his next bout, Cotto commented he is still having some conversations and studying rivals.

But he is sure of something. His next fight will be alongside Roc Nation. “This represents a huge step to Miguel Cotto Promotions we are going to go forward step by step. Concerning boxing, we are going to look for the best names.”
