Image result for miguel cottoIt was a bitter sweet moment this past Saturday night, when we watched a legend put the gloves on one las time.  We expected a show, and Miguel Cotto (41-6, 33 KO’s) delivered.  Sadly, he lost a 12 round unanimous decision to Sadam Ali (26-1, 14 KO’s), but he went out with a bang, and with class.  Miguel reiterated that even with the loss in what was his final fight, he would not return to the ring, he would stay home and focus on his family.  The sure fire hall of famer looked sad to leave the boxing world in his rear view mirror, but he said said over and over that now it is his turn to be there for his family, just as they have stuck by his side throughout his boxing career.

After a feel out first round for both fighters, things started heating up in the second.  Salam Ali hurt Cotto badly with a right hand and had him on wobbly legs.  Later in the round Ali went down on what looked like a knockdown, but was in fact a slip.  Cotto came back strong in the third, outlander Ali, but still looked a bit bothered by Ali’s hand speed.  Back and forth they would go, as again in the 4th, Ali stunned Cotto with a huge left hook, and had him dazed momentarily.  In the 6th, Cotto turned the tables with a huge right hand of his own, and had Ali trapped in the corner.  Ali would escape the round with a brilliant left hook counter, that got Cotto out of his face.

Cotto also had a huge 7th round, but in the 8th, things would start to turn in Ali’s favor.  For some reason, Cotto stopped throwing in the 8th round.  We would later learn that Cotto tore his left bicep, and it sure looked that way after the fight.  The bicep curled up and looked ads if it was in the wrong place on his arm.  Without the left arm at his disposal, Cotto lost his money much, which is his left hook.  In the 10th, Ali hurt Cotto again with a big left hook, and Cotto spent the rest of the round running.  Ali, perhaps feeling a sense of urgency in a close fight, came out guns blazing in the 11th, showing lightning quick combinations.

In the final round of Cotto’s career, Ali’s speed would prove to be too much against the wounded veteran.  The 12th round was a toss up, and if given to Cotto, the fight would have ended in a draw.  Cotto did outland Ali in the final frame, but Ali landed the more meaningful punches, and just looked better in general.  The final scores were as follows:  Julie Lederman had it 115-113 (Ali), Eric Marlinski had it 116-112 (Ali), and Steve Weisfeld had it 115-113 (Ali).  The final push stats read as follows:  Cotto landed 163 of 536 (30%) while Ali landed 139 f 647 (21%).  The difference in the fight was the power punches.  Ali landed 122 of 373 (33%), while Cotto landed 108 of 322 (34%).  Ali was the busier fighter and he got the nod.  This could have easily been a draw, as the final round was a 50-50 call.  Never the less, the legend went out with a bang, and we thank him for that.  Salam Ali becomes the new WBO Junior Middleweight champion.
