Miguel Cotto's Final Opponent...

The Miguel Cotto Camp recently announced their fighter's final opponent. On December 2nd, Miguel Cotto (41-5, 33 KOs) will fight Sadam Ali (25-1, 14 KOs) in a twelve round bout at Madison Square Garden in New York. Cotto, who recently captured the WBO Super Welterweight Title, openly discussed the possibility of fighting the winner of the GGG vs. Canelo fight but instead decided to fight Brooklyn's Ali.

Cotto is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Yoshihiro Kamegai (27-3-2, 24 KOs) at the StubHub Center in Carson, CA. Ali last fought Johan Perez (22-4-2, 15 KOs) on July 29th in Tucson, AZ, where he walked away the winner via unanimous decision. Ali also captured the vacant WBA International Welterweight Title in this contest. Ali's only career blemish came at the hands of Jesse Vargas (27-2, 10 KOs) in March of 2016.

The Cotto vs. Ali bout will be televised by HBO and promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.
