Miguel Cotto’s trainer Freddie Roach does not see a fight against Gennady Golovkin as profitable

"The thing is, they have not marketed the kid well. Nobody knows who he is. On pay-per-view he can’t do ten cents. Why fight a guy like that for no money? Unless he’s brining money to the table we’re not going to fight him”

Earlier, WBA president Mauricio Sulaiman stated that the winner of the upcoiming fight between Gennady Golovkin and Antonio Rubio would be a unification fight and the winner would face Miguel Cotto.

Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez, in turn, said that Cotto’s team has been making “all kinds of excuses” not to fight the Kazakhstani boxer.

But Cotto’s trainer sees a fight against Canelo Alvarez as the most promising and lucrative. Cotto’s next fight is scheduled to December 13 at Madison Square Garden. “If that happens, we’ll talk about Golovkin after that. We have no fear of him. He’s hittable, he can punch a little bit. He’s hittable and he doesn’t have a great defense. He’s a nice guy, a good fighter, real friendly guy and real polite. I met him a few times, he’s a really nice gentleman. But boxing wise he’s hittable and anyone who’s like that I feel Miguel can hurt,” Roach said.

Golovkin’s next fight will take place on October 18. The Kazakhstani undefeated boxer will face Marco Antonio Rubio in Los Angeles in a unification fight. The winner of the Golovkin-Rubio fight will face WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto in 2015

GGG would maul Cotto to a late TKO but Roach is right, I don't think Gennady would do any special PPV numbers yet, atleast nothing in the ballpark that Cotto can draw

After the Canelo fight, who other than rematches with the sport's top two cash cows Floyd and Pac would bring Cotto more money than a matchup with GGG?

He's right though. GGG isn't known yet. He's a fucking monster, but a few more (big) fights would do him good to get his name out there. He's a special fighter and someone that can be a huge star with his style. Rubio is a good start for sure though. Phone Post 3.0

Catch 22 Roach, how are they supposed to Market the Euro boxers, especially one as respectful as GGG. If his KO streak can't do any talking in Boxing, then the sport really does have a problem.

I assure Freddy Roach, there is not ONE Boxing Fan that doesn't know who GGG is lol. hasn't he even covered Ring Magazine?

I understand where he's coming from though... GGG would STARCH Cotto.... I don't think Cotto would get past Canelo if that fight were to happen... Phone Post 3.0

I'm a huge Cotto fan and I think he could win a decision by out boxing GGG but wouldn't take that fight at this point in my career their is no upside to it Canelo Gona bring him way more money and if he gets KOed by GGG it's most likely his final fight. Phone Post 3.0

Obviously Cotto is going to wait for Canelo since it seems he will be working with HBO soon

Golovkin is definitely getting his name out there, you dont have to draw on PPV to be a star

The problem with fight sports in 2014

Id hardly say being the first 1 to beat Golovkin is a low reward, its more just they know Golovkin is too much for old Cotto

And contrary to Roach's point, for a guy from Kazakhtan who has yet to get a crack at a top name Golovkin has made a pretty good name for himself. 1.1mil, 1.4mil, 750 viewers last 3 fights on HBO. Pretty good til the Geale fight and hardly fighting big names in US. Id expect the Rubio fight will get a good rate

Cotto & company are ducking Golovkin. They know they'd get massacred in a bad way. I hate it, but it's smart. Golovkin would give Cotto the kind of beating that at his age he wouldn't be able to come back from.

The only thing Freddie is right about is that he is very hittable. Bad news for him and Miguel is he seems to enjoy it and walks through punches. I want Ward to get his promotional issues taken care of so he can finally get back in there. That's the fight I want to see GGG in and would definitely buy that PPV. GGG is the guy I get most excited to see fight in boxing right now. Phone Post 3.0
