Steiner Sports Memorabilia has produced a new, knockout collection. Boxing's world welterweight champion Miguel Cotto has his own collectibles line available at www.steinersports.com, which will includes a variety of boxing gloves, limited edition boxing trunks and photographs, all hand-signed by the Puerto Rican star.

Cotto, who will defend his WBA Welterweight belt in Atlantic City on April 12 against Alfonso Gomez, has signed a collectibles deal with Steiner Sports which includes limited edition items with Cotto's signature, including fight model Cleto Reyes Gloves, the same as those he uses in the ring, Everlast Gloves, Puerto Rican Custom Trunks (just 25 pair, designed by the seamstress that creates all of Miguel's fight trunks) and color photographs featuring his last two championship title defenses against Shane Mosley and Zab Judah.

Cotto will literally be joining the Giants of the collectibles world. The New Rochelle, New York-based Steiner Sports, the leader in authentic sports collectibles, has just completed a Super Bowl collection with the miracle Giants squad, including the likes of Eli Manning, Michael Strahan, Plaxico Burress and Amani Toomer.
