    Cotto Announces Multi-Fight/Multi-Year Deal With Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports

    in Sports

    The speculation has now been confirmed. Miguel Cotto has announced that he and his fighters have partnered with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports. The deal was announced by the middleweight world champion himself on ESPN.com this morning.


    “We have an announcement to make today. We have an alliance with… Miguel Cotto Promotions, Miguel Cotto boxers with Roc Nation and we are more than happy to announce that.”


    ESPN reports that Cotto signed this multi-fight/multi-year deal earlier this week.


    Miguel Cotto is the second major star in the sport to sign with Roc Nation Sports. Super middleweight Andre Ward signed with Jay-Z’s company back in January which added much-needed legitimacy to the Roc Nation brand as a boxing promoter.
