April 16, 2015

NEW YORK (AP) Miguel Cotto is set for his first fight under Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports banner.

Cotto defends his share of the 160-pound championship against Daniel Geale on June 6 at the Barclays Center in New York.

Cotto had long fought under the Top Rank promotion until he split from the company early this year to sign with Roc Nation.

With a win, Cotto is expected to fight Canelo Alvarez in the fall.

Cotto is one of many star athletes to sign with Jay Z, including Kevin Durant, Robinson Cano and CC Sabathia.
