Cotto vs Ali Live | Miguel Cotto (41-5, 33 KOs) tipped the scales at a shockingly low 151.6 pounds on Friday for his guard of greetings WBO junior middleweight title against #9 WBO Sadam Ali (25-1, 14 KOs) at Madison Square Garden in New York. Ali tipped the scales at 153 pounds.
Sadam Ali, 29, isn’t a notable warrior, however his promoters at Golden Boy Promotions are wanting to enable him to become well known by giving him this battle. It’s an extraordinary open door for Ali, yet he will need to demonstrate some ability and get Cotto’s regard right off the bat. In the event that Ali can’t make Cotto careful about his shots, he will run him over like a cargo prepare.
Cotto-Ali has gotten the consideration from the boxing media because of the overwhelming advancement about it being the last battle of Cotto’s profession. Yet, other than that, it’s a battle that has not pulled in a considerable measure of talk. The Cotto versus Ali battle is seen as a crisscross, and a leaving present for Cotto to ensure he doesn’t lose the battle.

HBO consented to broadcast the Cotto-Ali battle, despite the fact that it’s a poor coordinate on paper. For anybody that perceived how EASILY Jessie Vargas beat Sadam Ali a year ago, they must be quite bothered by Cotto picking Ali as his last adversary of his profession. It’s to a greater degree a battle that you would hope to see on an undercard on free TV instead of in a headliner on HBO. The system is giving Cotto a blessing by broadcasting his celebrated confuse against Ali after they broadcast his past bungle against Yoshihiro Kamegai last August. Ali is similarly as finished coordinated as Kamegai seemed to be. Cotto vs Ali
Brilliant Boy Promotions likely could have gotten WBC junior middleweight champion Jermell Charlo to bring the battle with Cotto in the event that they’d offered it to him. Charlo talked about being willing to take the battle. It would have been a striking route for Cotto to end his vocation by battling the 27-year-old Cotto rather than the as of late thumped out Sadam Ali. The one negative about Cotto battling Charlo is he’d likely end his vocation in a terrible note by getting thumped out by the unbeaten WBC champion. By picking Ali, Cotto builds his odds of resigning with a knockout triumph. The easygoing boxing fans may never have known about Sadam Ali, however some of them will be glad to see Cotto resign with a win rather than a terrible KO misfortune to Charlo.
Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin’s promoter Tom Loeffler says he’s going to be making a BIG announcement tonight on HBO’s Boxing card headlined by Miguel Cotto vs. Sadam Ali. The speculation is running high that Loeffler could announce the rematch between Golovkin and Golden Boy Promotions money fighter Saul Canelo Alvarez OR SuperFly2. Loeffler isn’t ready to give any hints at this time.
While there’s a lot of interest in the SuperFly2 card from boxing fans, there’s much more interest in the Canelo vs. Golovkin 2 rematch. Hopefully, Loeffler is going to be making announcement on that fight rather than SuperFly2. Fans want to see the rematch between Canelo and Golovkin due to the controversy surrounding their previous fight last September. Canelo was out-boxed badly by Golovkin, and yet the judges scored it as a draw. Cotto vs Ali
If it is an announcement by Loeffler about the Canelo vs. GGG rematch, then he’ll be jumping in front of Golden Boy in letting the cat out of the bag about the second fight. You would think that Golden Boy Promotions head honcho Oscar De La Hoya would want to be the one that reveals the news about the Canelo-Golovkin 2 fight. After all, it would be Golden Boy’s card. Loeffler would be stealing Golden Boy’s thunder by letting the boxing world know about the Canelo vs. Golovkin 2 rematch. Cotto vs Ali
It’s thought that Golden Boy will wait until after the December 16 fight between WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders and David Lemieux before they make a decision on picking Canelo’s opponent for May 5 on Cinco de Mayo weekend. After all, Canelo and Golden Boy can use the Saunders-Lemieux winner as leverage to get Golovkin to accept a smaller cut of the revenue. Golden Boy can tell Loeffler and Golovkin that they either accept their offer or else they’ll take the Saunders vs. Lemieux winner for their May 5 fight for Canelo. It would be a crafty move on Golden Boy’s part to use Saunders or Lemieux as leverage to get a better deal for GGG fight, but it’s predictable. Golovkin would have to take whatever is offered to him by Golden Boy if he wanted to fight Canelo on May 5. That’s the whole negative about the judges scoring the previous Canelo-Golovkin fight a 12 round draw instead of a win for Golovkin.
