This fight looks to be on as the co-feature of margarito vs zab.

This is BS, yeah its probably seting up cotto vs tony but they could still have fought a more live opponent than gomez.

i like the kid gomez, he's got a lot of heart but he's not at this level and i doubt he ever will be.

Arums conned Cotto fans once again.

fighting judah and mosley still doesn't justify gomez as an opponent for cotto imo. this is just like arum trying to push pavlik/duddy on us. i'm not into fighters having "gimme" fights when they're on the elite level. i didn't like it when floyd did it against bruseles, so i'd be a hypocrite to think this is ok.

You might not like it, but it's something that's always happen through out the years. Elite fighters are always going to have gimmie fights. No matter what. Every elite fighter has done it

California boxing writer Robert Morales is quoting Bob Arum saying that Oscar De La Hoya will rematch Floyd Mayweather Jr next. Golden Boy Promotions are not confirming the fight, but are not denying it. Which if true, means that Arum’s star Miguel Cotto won’t be fighting either of them next.

***
An insider at Top Rank has said that Miguel Cotto may now fight The Contender’s Alfonso Gomez on April 26, with Antonio Margarito facing Zab Judah in the co-feature. Wins by Cotto and Margarito could result in them meeting later in the year. A Miguel Cotto-Shane Mosley rematch is also being considered.

YES! Please give me the rematch of Mosley-Cotto. Maybe they will get it right this time dammit.

As far as Cotto-Gomez I have no problem with it honestly. It makes sense to me, and I feel like Cotto deserves an easier fight to hone his skills just a little more before supposedly teeing off against Margarito, who will kill him.

Gomez is alright this will obviously be his toughest test .. I dont think he will beat Cotto I could see it going like 8-9 Rounds with a Cotto KO .. Gomez seemed tough on the contender and then he fought Gatti(old) and then Ben Tackie Who is Crap too .. they could have found someone better but it might be enjoyable .. soon find out
