HBO; Cotto-Corley, February 28th

13.02.05 - By Jim Amato: As the month of February closes, HBO will showcase Miguel Cotto defending his W.B.O. 140 pound title against "Chop Chop" Corley. The junior welterweight division is red hot right now and the hard hitting Cotto is right in the thick of it. With the upcoming Kostya Tsyzu-Ricky Hatton fight being a sell out.. Also the tremendous interest in a possible Arturo Gatti-Floyd Mayweather Jr. battle, there is some SERIOUS money to be made.

Cotto has been a star on the rise for a while now. One would have to be blind not to see the tremendous talent in this young man. Now though the time is getting close to see if Miguel can lay claim to being the BEST in his weight class.

After the Corley bout, assuming he wins he will probably be matched with the winner of Tsyzu-Hatton or the Gatti-Mayweather Jr. winner. That's if that fight does come off. Floyd has some legal issues to tend to first. Corley is no cream puff but at this stage of their respective careers Cotto should emerge victorious. After that we'll just have to wait and see what the future holds for Miguel.
