Miguel Cotto kicks Bob Arum in the balls!

May 25, 2010 by Edgar Gonzalez 

We all know Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions are two of the biggest boxing promoters in the game and they highly compete against each other.

It’s no secret Golden Boy tried to sign Manny Pacquiao out from their rival Top Rank by getting his signature on a seven-fight contract during a secret dinner at an L.A. steakhouse back in 2006 in which Oscar De La Hoya tried to reel in Pacquiao with a briefcase full of money, $300,000 to be exact, to serve as a signing bonus.

At the end Pacquiao, never fought for Golden Boy and ended up signing with Top Rank days later.

In July 2009, Oscar De La Hoya also tried to get Miguel Cotto to sign under Golden Boy Promotions during a friendly game of golf in the Majestic Bahia beach Resort & golf club in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, but it didn’t happen.

Now, Oscar De La Hoya has a new plan up his sleeve. He has joined forces with Miguel Cotto to present Solo Boxeo Tecate in Puerto Rico. Former World Champion, Miguel Cotto announced today the strategic alliance with Oscar de la Hoya in order to move boxing forward in Puerto Rico to the next level. The alliance between Miguel Cotto Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions is already up and running. Their first “Solo Boxeo Tecate” show, aired by Telefutura, will take place on June 4th, in Juncos, Puerto Rico.

I guess if a suitcase full of money didn’t work the first time plan B is to make him your business partner, build a relationship then reel him in. I guess its no surprise what Miguel Cotto is doing, he never liked Bob Arum especially after Arum leaned towards helping out Antonio Margarito.

This shows how loyal Miguel Cotto can be. Cotto on the verge of headlining Top Rank’s June 5 Yankee Stadium card in his challenge of WBA junior middleweight champ and rabbi Yuri Foreman has made a promotional deal with Oscar de la Hoya and Golden Boy.

How do you think Bob Arum feels about his own fighter now working with Golden Boy and against his crew?

“I don’t know or care how Cotto can do that when he’s fighting Yuri on June 5 in New York but that is his problem,” Bob Arum told Michael Marley today.

You know Bob Arum cares but this is how you pay back someone after all those years, all those lucrative fights he got you, all the money he made and after he created you? You turn around and join forces with his biggest competitor.

Do you think what Miguel Cotto did was a kick in the balls?
