Miguel Cotto of Puerto has announced that he would be going in against Yishihiro Kamegai of Japan in the coming month of August at California.


In previous times, Cotto has won world titles in four different weight divisions all the way from the light welterweight through to middleweight.

However, since losing the WBC middleweight belt to Saul Alvarez in a lopsided unanimous decision in Las Vegas back in November 2015, Cotto has never been in a fight.

Some of his notable wins in his career includes Zab Judah (TKO11, 2007), Shane Mosley (UD, 2007), Ricardo Mayorga (TKO12, 2012) and Sergio Martinez (RTD10, 2014).

He also had a beautiful rematch victory against Antonio Margarito whom he stopped in the 9th round back in 2011.

Margarito had earlier stopped Cotto three years earlier in the 11th round thus carting home his WBA World Welterweight title. The former was caught in his very next fight attempting to make use of illegal wrappings on his hand in the dressing room before his unsuccessful title defence against Shane Mosley.
