Fight Goes The Distance As Mayweather Dethrones Cotto
THE SOVEREIGN boxing champion Floyd Mayweather proved yet again his dominance in the fighting fraternity following his win over Miguel Cotto to claim the World Boxing Association super welterweight title.
The feat however did not come easy as Cotto put up one hell of a fight blooding the champ’s nose in the process earning the respect of his opponent.
“You’re a hell of a champion!” Mayweather told Cotto.
“You’ret he toughest guy I ever fought.” he added.
The judges results also revealed that the battle had been one of Mayweather’s toughest challenges in a while with two adjudicators scoring 117-111 and a third at 118-110.
This could possibly be the last fight Mayweather partakes in prior to serving out three-month jail sentence in june on counts of domestic abuse.
Boxing enthusiasts around the world still believe that if Mayweather is going to be considered one of the greatest he has to defeat Manny Pacquiao. Let’s wait and see if this epic battle will ever take place.
