Miguel Cotto vs. Yuri Foreman on June 5th at Yankee Stadium

Sometime WBO welterweight champion Miguel Cotto (34-2, 27 KO’s) has been confirmed for a fight against World Boxing Association light middleweight champion Yuri Foreman (28-0, 8 KOs) on June 5t, 2010 at the Yankee Stadium in New York, New York. The stadium, which is normally used to house the New York Yankees baseball team, will be retrofitted to fit "between 30,000 and 35,000 fans,"  This is perhaps an ambitious number for a fight that matches Cotto, a fighter who was recently beaten to a pulp by Manny Pacquiao in his last fight in November 14. And now fighting to defend it over his previous opponent Miguel Clottey.

Miguel Cotto at 29 has been stopped in two out of his last four fights in the past two years and looks like a shell of his former self. Maybe it is not time yet for Cotto to go for big names after scoring a 2 wins 2 losses in 2 year time.

There are some people who think that Cotto is going after Foreman, a fighter that few boxing fans have heard of, because Cotto can use the WBA light middleweight title as title bait for Manny Pacquiao, who into collecting titles for some reason and might want a chance to pick up an eighth world title. Whew! This will be another collection for Pacquiao.

Given how easily Pacquiao beat Cotto last year, he might be interested in beating him again and capturing yet another title. Some boxing aficionados might be interested in seeing the fight, that is indeed maybe. Cotto needs to pick up some significant wins over some known opponents to make a comeback on his name before Pacquiao can slaughtered him again.
