Floyd Mayweather fought hard and long to win a unanimous decision over a game Miguel Cotto in one of his toughest fights ever. Cotto held on until the last bell rang and Mayweather suffered a bloodied nose before he managed a win and remained unbeaten in 43 fights.
Two judges scored the fight 117-111 and the third scored 118-110. The Associated Press had Mayweather winning 116-112.
“You’re a hell of a champion,” Mayweather told Cotto in the ring afterward. “You’re the toughest guy I ever fought.”
In just a few weeks Mayweather enters a county jail to serve a three-month sentence for domestic abuse.
