Notwithstanding all the discipline he's taken throughout his brilliant profession, in which he's won big showdowns in three weight divisions and apparently as of now has the guardians clearing space for him in the International Boxing Hall of Fame, Miguel Cotto has turned out to be an exceptionally shrewd businessperson.

Cotto will challenge Sergio Martinez on Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York for the WBC middleweight title. On the off chance that he overcomes Martinez, the ruling champion, Cotto will turn into the first Puerto Rican-conceived boxer to win world titles in four weight classes.

He as of now has world title cinchs at super lightweight, welterweight and super welterweight in his trophy case. A triumph over Martinez would be huge, however it could likewise be setting himself up for an epic catch up.

Consider this: Floyd Mayweather, who vanquished Cotto in 2012, holds both the WBC welterweight and super welterweight sashs. No boxer has held three real weight class titles in the meantime since Henry Armstrong held the featherweight, lightweight and welterweight titles in 1938.

Mayweather has yet to declare his rival for a Sept. 13 session, and it would be troublesome for Cotto to battle in an alternate significant occasion in 97 days. In any case there is nothing situated in stone that would constrain Mayweather to battle on Sept. 13, particularly on the off chance that he could draw off something as memorable as holding a title in three weight classes all the while.

It's all conceivable – improbable, yes, however in any event conceivable – as a result of the splendid way Cotto has taken care of the recent a piece of his vocation. The way that situation is even remotely conceivable identifies with the quick way in which Cotto has situated himself in the course of the last a few years.

Cotto used a large portion of his vocation with Top Rank, more than once alluding to it all through the years as "my organization." He was enrolled out of the 2000 Olympics by Top Rank president Todd duboef, and the two keep up a nearby companionship right up 'til the present time.

In late January 2012, when the free operator Cotto selected to acknowledge an offer to battle Mayweather, the first individual he informed was duboef.

Mayweather, obviously, doesn't work with Top Rank thus marking an arrangement to battle him implied leaving the main special organization Cotto had known.

The part was neighborly on the grounds that Cotto had kept duboef insider savvy all through the choice making methodology. Maybe he did it on account of their fellowship, yet it was likewise insightful for business reasons. On the off chance that Cotto had beaten Mayweather, he'd have been committed to provide for him a rematch. A win over Mayweather would have been an all-clock and Cotto would likewise have made monstrous open doors for himself.

He would have been a reasonable adversary for a rematch with the Top Rank-advertised Manny Pacquiao and also a battle with Golden Boy-pushed Canelo Alvarez.

Cotto gave Mayweather one of his hardest battles, yet lost an unanimous choice. He decided on a session with the then-unbeaten Austin Trout as a rebound match, endeavoring to influence his prevalence in New York, yet Trout's style was completely wrong for him and Cotto wasn't himself in an uneven misfortune.

Still, Top Rank stayed intrigued by pushing Cotto once more, and for great reason. It had a large number of potential rivals for Cotto and a rematch with Pacquiao stayed on the table.

It says a ton in regards to what Cotto intended to the organization that a number of its representatives were slaphappy when Cotto re-marked with Top Rank to face Delvin Rodriguez a year ago.

Rodriguez is minimal more than an apprentice, yet after consecutive misfortunes, Cotto not just required to get again on the winning track, however he required a veteran coach to upgrade his amusement.

He enlisted Freddie Roach, who works nearly with Top Rank, and Cotto appeared to be his old self in a prevailing triumph over Rodriguez.

It's great to be distrustful of that win, in light of the fact that Rodriguez isn't remotely in Cotto's class, and a win over Rodriguez barely means he's primed to contend on even terms with somebody like Martinez.

In any case Cotto utilized that win over Rodriguez to vault himself into a real session with Martinez that has extraordinary fan and media interest. In the event that Cotto sets up a great execution, he opens the entryway for all way of huge battles.

In the event that he wins, he could conceivably confront Alvarez if Alvarez moves beyond Erislandy Lara in their July 12 session in Las Vegas. A Cotto-Canelo battle is one of the additionally enthralling scraps that could be made.

A second session with Pacquiao would be intriguing, despite the fact that Pacquiao halted Cotto in the twelfth adjust in 2009. Top Rank CEO Bob Arum said he will offer Juan Manuel Marquez the first break at Pacquiao, yet Marquez is going to drive a hard deal and is no certain thing to acknowledge.

Accepting he could make welterweight once more, Cotto would additionally set himself up for battles with Timothy Bradley, Amir Khan, Marcos Maidana, Shawn Porter and Keith Thurman in the event that he looks better than average against Martinez.

Cotto's stature in the business stays gigantic, about 14 years after his vocation started. An email from a marketing specialist to correspondents blanket Saturday's quarrel was telling over the way in which the business respects Cotto.

"The press turnout for this battle is huge," the marketing expert composed, utilizing yellow to highlight the passage to point out it. "Hence, we have extremely constrained seating."

No one thinks about where correspondents get to sit, however the fact is that even in the final lap of his profession, Cotto can in any case pack them in.

Not many warriors in the course of recent years have verged on taking care of the stretch run the way Cotto has.

Cotto isn't one for consideration and he's never met a meeting he was willing to do. He'd far like to go to the rec center, prepare and head home than arrangement with news people the route stars of his gauge must do. Be that as it may Cotto is the polished proficient and handles the greater part of his business in a top notch way.

On the off chance that he beats Martinez and Mayweather indicates the scarcest enthusiasm toward confronting him, it would mean a huge payday for Cotto. By marking fleeting arrangements and keeping
