Miguel Cotto ordered to defend WBC title against winner of Golovkin v Rubio

Today the WBC ordered Miguel Cotto to defend his middleweight WBC title against the winner of Gennady Golovkin and Marco Antonio Rubio, with the deadline for the fight to take place by June 2015. 

This leaves Cotto in an uncomfortable position as he was lining up a mega bucks fight with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. It has been rumored that Miguel Cotto had been ducking Gennady Golovkin and with the WBC stepping in, it seems to have Miguel Cotto backed into a corner! Team Cotto do have big decisions to make. Cotto will have to look at what he gain after each of those fights, In Gennady Golovkin you have the chance to hold unify the WBC, WBA, Ring Magazine and IBO belts. Leaving him in a postion to dictate more than he has ever done before, along with immense power in the sport. In Saul Canelo Alvarez you have a massive chance for a big payday, the Latin audience along with American TV would make the fight very lucrative. It also seems as Cotto see's this as an easier fight!
