NEW YORK CITY -- TQBR caught up with Golden Boy Promotions' Richard Schaefer Friday at the weigh-in for Miguel Cotto vs. Austin Trout the next night on Showtime, where we asked him about the choice of Trout for Cotto's opponent, what's next for Adrien Broner, how to transform Lucas Matthysse from a hardcore fan favorite into a star and why Peter Quillin might fight Jermain Taylor next.
That covers most of the waterfront for some of Golden Boy's bigger names who aren't already enlisted for an upcoming fight (like Devon Alexander and Amir Khan) or who might soon be fighting one another (Floyd Mayweather vs. Saul Alvarez or Robert Guerrero).
Between the pulsing beats from the loudspeakers to hype the Puerto Rican-friendly crowd and before all the boxers got down to their sk...

Miguel Cotto is, rather literally, boxing at Madison Square Garden. And he returns Saturday on Showtime to the home where he's sold tens of thousands of tickets, filled up sloshing buckets full of his own blood, broken men's faces (really), avenged dark losses and repeatedly turned the one-time "Mecca of boxing" into the world's loudest cheering section for...

Cotto, a Puerto Rico native, has seen his fights morph into giant fiestas the previous seven times he fought at the Garden. Against Antonio Margarito last year, a sellout of crowd of 21,239 honked horns, waved the Puerto Rico flag and absolutely went wild for all things Cotto...

NEW YORK CITY -- Arriving slightly late here in storied Madison Square Garden. Usually cards start at 6 p.m., but this one kicked off earlier. Bad planning, Starks.
