Puerto Rico’s favorite boxer, Miguel Cotto, gave quit a show to his fans and all the pay-per-view audience watching his fight against Floyd Mayweather.  Mayweather was victorious at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas with scores of 117-111, 1117-111 and 118-110 but Cotto rode it out until the 12th and final round.

Saturday’s fight saw the great Mayweather win by a unanimous decision, winning nine rounds to three.  He is now the WBA super light-middleweight title holder.  This impressive win gives him a 43-fight record.  Mayweather will now serve a three-month prison sentence for domestic violence.

31-year-old Cotto, born in Caguas, Puerto Rico, is a former WBA super light- middleweight champion and has been a four-time world champion in three different weight divisions.  He has participated in the Pan Am Games, Summer Olympics and Junior World Championships.
