Miguel Cotto may have finally found an opponent for 2016.

Cotto and former junior welterweight titleholder Lamont Peterson are far along in negotiations to meet on Dec. 3 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, a source told RingTV.com. The source tempered his enthusiasm by saying nothing had been finalized but that things “looked good” for the two to reach a deal.

:jjones

Decent fight IMO. One that could also be a potential banana skin for Cotto if he takes his eye off the ball.

Sky Sports doing a brilliant job of selling this GGG v Brook fight. The majority of people i have spoken to actually think that Brook is going to K.O GGG early on.Clueless

Kell has not even remotely cleared out the WW division and the public over here are going on like he is one of boxings greats.. I think GGG ends this fight whenever he wants to. Far to much power and can see a body shot ending things within 6

Kell Brook has heart and I don't think we should ever question his chin again after tonight! He gave a gutsy effort for a couple of rounds and showed massive cojones.

Brave decision by Ingle to throw in the towel like that. It was the right move, Kell was wilting and beginning to get clobbered all over the ring. He did it for Kell's health.

GGG didn't look like he was 100% to me. A lot of his punches felt forced and they didn't seem to have much snap on them, plus he was showing an awful lot of frustration in there. Perhaps those rumors of him being sick yesterday were true, or was it a ploy to get Canelo in the ring? Who knows but it certainly was a poor performance from him.

The ending was anti-climatic but it is what it is. British boxing crowds are the best though, wish other countries would take not and share some of their enthusiasm and passion for the sport.

A total no lose situation for Brook and so it is proving. The minimum requirement a boxing world champion should have is heart. Brook was supposed to be the superior boxer here with his speed and combinations but i didn't see that apart from a brief spell in the second round. That was the worst i have seen GGG box ever and he still put him away in 5. The British media are already painting it over as a injury that ended the fight and failing to recognise it was GGG who actually inflicted the injury. The fight was never going to end with Brook as the winner.

Boxing wise i thought Khans performance against Canelo was far more impressive than Brooks tonight. Kells chin is a lot stronger than i thought but he got tagged far to easily. Nobody makes heroes out of defeat like the British. Thats for sure

Awesome fight, and absolutely agree with the decision to throw in the towel. GGG looked a bit off but still an animal.


Make Canelo vs Brook (Y)

I wonder if Canelo saw enough last night to re-think his ducking of GGG? :hmm:

BTW apparently Kell's eye socket was broken during the fight. And some mongs in the cbox had the audacity to question his trainer throwing in the towel :kobe


Fight of The Year contender? :avit:

It's safe to say his health was at risk had that fight continued. Seeing as he got brought up, Khan would have been obliterated.

Anyone seen the Eubank Jr comment along the lines of "my corner don't own towels". In addition to that being incredibly insensitive given his past fight, he will be immediately regretting that if they ever fight.

I dont think we seen anything from GGG that we have not seen before. Technically he is not the best and he takes shots on a regular basis. The Geale fight was not to dissimilar from last night. Daniel had good sucsess with landing shots for the first 3 rounds but got dropped in the 4th. Being the natural lighter and faster guy Brook was expected to land quite a lot in the earlier rounds. GGG never stopped coming forward and applying pressure and for me never looked in any trouble. The guy is like a machine

I didnt see any of the CB comments but they are obviously clueless to boxing. Brook was taking massive punishment and was ready to fall in the 5th before the towel come in. Ingle has worked with Kell everyday for 10 years. He more than anybody knows when enough is enough. Throwing the towel in was 100% the correct decision. No point taking more damage in a fight that is only going to end one way

Eubank Jnr and his Dad are a pair of cunts no doubt but if Jnr does fight GGG it will be a much closer fight than last night. People under estimate the weights in boxing. Jnr is a natural 160lbs and would absorb the shots much better than Kell did. You cant expect to jump up 2 weight divisions and it not take its toll. For all the talk of how well Kell did last night the fact is the fight ended within 5 rounds and Brook needs surgery on a fractured eye socket. It was interesting for a couple of rounds but Kell was beaten up badly
