Miguel Cotto the promoter has been busy with his promotional company signing young Puerto Rican boxing talent and making a foray into concert promoting. Gabe Jackson Jersey .Cotto the future Hall of Fame boxer has been a lot less busy.At 35, Cotto is in the twilight of his career, during which he came out of the 2000 Olympics to become one of the sports biggest and most exciting stars as well as the first Puerto Rican fighter to win world titles in four weight divisions (junior welterweight, welterweight, junior middleweight and middleweight).In recent years, however, Cotto (40-5, 33 KOs) has picked his spots to fight. He boxed only once in 2013 (following a 10-month layoff), once in 2014 (when he knocked out Sergio Martinez to win the middleweight crown) and twice in 2015, returning from a year layoff to stop Daniel Geale in a middleweight title defense and then losing a decision and the title to Canelo Alvarez in their huge fight in November 2015.Since then there has been much discussion about Cottos next move. He and promoter Roc Nation Sports talked at length about a fight in the second half of this year. There were negotiations with Mexican star Juan Manuel Marquez, also a four-division titleholder, for a major pay-per-view fight, but Marquez is a smaller man and they could not agree on a catch weight acceptable to both fighters.Then there were conversations with HBO about a fight with former junior welterweight titlist and welterweight contender Lamont Peterson on Dec. 3 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. But nothing was ever finalized with one issue being that the date was too close to the Nov. 19 fight Roc Nation Sports is co-promoting between its other star fighter, Andre Ward, and unified light heavyweight titleholder Sergey Kovalev.So for the first time since his 2001 pro debut, Cotto will go through a calendar year without a ring appearance.We have had several conversations with Roc Nation about where Miguel is at and what he wants to do. Everything is good but with different circumstances he decided not to fight in 2016, Bryan Perez, a Miguel Cotto Promotions executive and Cottos close friend, told ESPN. We had different conversations about fighting in December but we decided not to fight and do it in the first part of 2017, between February or March.According to Perez, Cottos next fight will be the last one of the three-fight deal he signed with Roc Nation Sports in March 2015. While many have speculated that would likely be the final fight of Cottos career -- he has said he is looking ahead to life after the boxing ring -- Perez said it probably wont be.The next fight is the last fight on the agreement we signed in 2015 but Miguel feels healthy and good and wants to continue fighting, Perez said. He has the last word and will decide what to do and what his plan will be but he says he wants to continue to fight and to explore facing the best names out there and getting the best guarantee (in terms of money). He will fight twice in 2017.Although Cotto won the middleweight title, he fought below the division limit of 160 in all three of his title fights (155 and 153 twice). The mid-to-low 150s is where he intends to fight next.He will be comfortable fighting below 160, but whatever opportunities pop up and whatever fight is the best guarantee and benefits his career he will consider, Perez said. We will wait to see.Obviously, he is not going to go to welterweight.Perez said Peterson (34-3-1, 17 KOs), 32, of Washington, D.C., remains a possible opponent. Peterson has not fought since last October.Lamont Peterson is a former world champion, a great fighter and it would be a great fight but not a pay-per-view fight. But I think its a fight that could get done, Perez said, adding that even though Peterson is aligned with adviser Al Haymon it would not prevent a deal being made with Roc Nation Sports, which is owned by music star Jay Z, a longtime rival of Haymons.A far more intriguing bout would be against former welterweight and junior welterweight titleholder Timothy Bradley Jr. (33-2-1, 13 KOs), 33, of Palm Springs, California. Bradley has voiced interest in moving up to face Cotto.Thats one of the fights Tim would like before he is done with his career, Monica Bradley, his wife and manager told ESPN in August when he re-signed with promoter Top Rank.Said Perez: Bradley is a huge fight, a great fight to make. Its a great fight for the fans, a good style fight. Miguel is always willing to fight the best and if Bradley is there and available and we can agree on terms, we are more than happy to put them in the ring.That fight would entail Cottos camp co-promoting with Top Rank, which promoted Cotto for most of his career until he left to sign with Roc Nation Sports after saying he would never leave the company. It was a move that deeply disappointed Top Rank president Todd duBoef, who recruited Cotto out of the Olympics and grew very close to him through the years.We ended our business relationship with Top Rank but if theres a fight we can work on together we will work together, no problem, Perez said. We had a great relationship with Top Rank and we like and respect Bob [Arum] and Todd. I think Bradley would be a huge fight and a great fight.When asked for his view of the possible fight, duBoef was not overly enthusiastic and not anxious to go down that road. But he said he would acquiesce to his fighter.If its a fight that Tim Bradley and Monica want, I would discuss it, duBoef said.Regardless of when Cotto returns, at what weight and against which opponent, he will be back soon training with Hall of Famer Freddie Roach and looking for the biggest fight that can be made.This is the first time he had a layoff like this, Perez said. But at this point in his career its good for him. Hes been moving around in the gym to maintain his condition but its good for him to get the rest. But he is ready to fight again. Ronnie Lott Jersey . Tevez, who has had conflicts with coaches in the past, has not been called up since Sabella was named coach in 2011. Argentina boasts Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Angel Di Maria. Bo Jackson Jersey ., for the next three years with the signings on Monday of Daryl Townsend and Michael Carter. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. A woman who accused Florida?football players Antonio Callaway of sexually assaulting her and Treon Harris of attempted sexual assault in December is boycotting a Title IX hearing because the university appointed a Gators football booster to adjudicate the case.According to a letter obtained by ESPN, the womans attorney, John Clune of Boulder, Colorado, informed Floridas deputy general counsel that the complainant, her parents and five witnesses will not attend Callaways student conduct code hearing, which is scheduled for Friday in Gainesville, Florida.This has been a difficult decision but as I previously indicated to you, the fact that UF has hired a football booster to adjudicate a sexual assault allegation against one of the teams own football players is a fundamentally skewed process in which [the complainant] refuses to participate, Clune wrote in letter sent Friday morning to UF deputy general counsel Amy Hass.To be clear, [the complainant] remains very willing to participate in a fair and unbiased disciplinary process. Mr. Calloways behavior has had a great impact on her life and continuing as a student at UF is of great importance to her and her future.In January, Florida suspended Callaway and Harris for violating the schools code of conduct policy. They were barred from campus and took online courses during the suspension. According to sources, the woman reported the incident to Floridas student conduct and conflict resolution office in early December. She didnt report the incident to police.Gainesville police and University of Florida police previously confirmed to ESPN that they didnt have reports related to the alleged incident.The U.S Department of Education allows schools to establish their own structure for adjudicating Title IX complaints within certain guidelines and standards. The agency requires anyone involved in the grievance procedure to have adequate training in handling complaints of sexual harassment and sexual violence -- and to be unbiased. A letter the agency sent to colleges and universities in 2011 states, a schools investigation and hearing process cannot be equitable unless they are impartial. Therefore, any real or perceived conflicts of interest between the fact-finder or decision-maker and the parties should be disclosed.Florida officials appointed attorney Jake Schickel to serve as a hearing officer. Schickel, a founding partner of a Jacksonville, Florida, law firm, has a bachelors degree in political science and law degree from Florida. He is also a past trustee of Floridas Levin College of Law.A former track and field athlete at Florida, Schickel, 68, is a Scholarship Club donor to Florida Football Boosters, which requires annual contributions of $4,800 to $8,599, according to a 2014-15 Year In Review program published by the UF athletics department. According to the documents, Schickel is also a 3-Point Club donor to Florida basketball, which requires annual contributions of $2,000 to $4,999.To be clear, this letter is not intended to cast any aspersions about Mr. Schickels character or his service to his alma mater, Clune wrote in an Aug. 2 letter to Hass. However, UF should never have asked him to serve as an objective reviewer and decision-maker on this matter when the claim has been brought against a star member of the very team for which both he and his law partners have provided considerable financial support.Quite frankly, short of finding a relative of Mr. Calloway, Im not sure how UF could have found someone with more conflicts [than] Mr. Schickel.Janine Sikes, the universitys assistant vice president for media relations and public affairs, issued a statement Thursday afternoon saying that Schickel is qualified to preside over the hearing.Any hearing officer and all committee members are trained and vetted for their impartiality, Sikes statement said. A hearing officer or committee member would not be disqualified or lack objectivity simply because he or she had been a student athlete decades earlier or purchases athletic tickets as more than 90,000 people do each year.Florida officials, citing confidentiality laws, declined to say whether it routinely hired Schickel to oversee student judicial hearings, and Schickel did not respond to interview requests from ESPN.This is beyond unacceptable, Clune told ESPN. I couldnt be more proud of my client for boycotting this hearing and shell take her testimony and her witnesses elsewhere. Victims are not required to settle for whatever scraps of fairness are left over in a biased university process. They get a full seat at the table just like the accused, football player or not. If Florida wants to clear their athlete to play, so be it.Brett Sokolow, executive director of the Association of Title IX Administrators, a nonproofit association for schools, colleges and universities, said if Florida is choosing someone with such deep ties to the athletic department and university, it opens up any potential decision to a complaint to the U. Jim Otto Jersey. S. Department of Education or a Title IX lawsuit.The obligation for a Title IX investigation is for it to be impartial and completed by somebody whose perspective is objective. All of those associations with the university certainly raise the issue of potential bias, he said. How would the alleged victim feel like shes getting a fair shake?Im not even sure its ethical under the state ethics rules for the attorney to take on this engagement, given his donations and other boosting of the athletic program, he added.He said any such conflicts should have been disclosed to both sides of the Title IX complaint. Clune said the information was not disclosed and that his firm discovered it on its own.Harris, a junior from Miami, announced last month that he was leaving Florida and transferring to another school. Sources familiar with the case told ESPN that Harris agreed to leave Florida as part of a plea deal related to the Title IX case. He also apologized to the woman, the sources said.Callaway, a sophomore from Miami, has maintained his innocence and planned to fight the allegations in Fridays student conduct code hearing.According to his law firms biography, Schickel previously worked as an assistant state attorney and chief assistant attorney for the Fourth Judicial Circuit in Florida. He is also a fellow of the American Bar Foundation, adjunct professor at the Florida Coastal School of Law and past president and member of the American Board of Trial Advocacy, according to the bio.In the letter sent Friday, Clune also objected to Florida officials allowing the womans past sexual history to be included in the hearing materials. UF had previously assured [the complainant] and her advisor that UF does not tolerate such slut-shaming tactics and that per UF policy, all such information would be excluded from the process and that any material that had previously been submitted by Mr. Calloway would be placed under seal and not given to the hearing officer, Clune wrote.Amy E. Osteryoung, the attorney for Callaway, said Clune is being inappropriate and making an attempt at intimidation.We are not going to besmirch his client in the press, Osteryoung said in a statement. The totality of the investigation, which is over 1,000 pages, will do that for us.Clunes letter also said he emailed Hass suggestions of organizations that can connect you with independent hearing officers that arent boosters of Mr. Calloways football team. I have put your office in touch with the Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights, who has expressed their concern about the impartiality of the hearing officer. Nonetheless, these efforts have all fallen on deaf ears and UF seems even more determined to move forward with their selection.It is not uncommon for universities to appoint independent officers to adjudicate student conduct code hearings. When former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was accused of sexually assaulting FSU student Erica Kinsman in December 2012, FSU officials offered Winston and Kinsman the choice of three former Florida Supreme Court justices to hear their case.Winston and Kinsman were each allowed to reject one of the justices, and they settled on Major Harding, a former state Supreme Court chief justice. Harding received his undergraduate and law degrees from Wake Forest University and a master of laws degree from the University of Virginia.Clune also represented Kinsman. FSU paid her a $950,000 settlement earlier this year. Her federal civil lawsuit against Winston is set to begin in April in U.S. District Court in Orlando.Sokolow said all colleges and universities right now are trying to show the public that their Title IX processes are ones of integrity. When situations arise that make it look like a fix is involved, he said, weve failed to uphold a sacred public trust.As a freshman last season, Callaway was Floridas leading receiver with 35 catches for 678 yards with four touchdowns in 14 games. He also returned two punts for touchdowns. He was suspended from participating in football activities and missed spring practice before returning to campus for classes in June. Callaway practiced with the Gators for the first time this year on Wednesday, but hasnt been fully reinstated to the team, according to Gators coach Jim McElwain.To get a guy who took a ton of snaps, anytime you get that kind of experience it obviously helps, McElwain told reporters this week. Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
