One of the pound-for-pound best boxers alive returned to HBO pay-per-view (PPV) last night (Sat., May 5, 2012) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, as Floyd Mayweather added yet another championship belt to his already extensive collection with a unanimous decision victory over Miguel Cotto.

The super welterweight clash was contested over 12 rounds and while Cotto may have presented the toughest challenge of Mayweather's career, he simply couldn't match up to "Money" over 36 minutes.

Big surprise, huh?

They weren't the only two in action on PPV last night. Saul Alvarez cemented his status as one of the best in the world with a dominant decision victory over "Sugar" Shane Mosley, whose career is all but wrapped up. Or at least it should be.

In addition, Jessie Vargas earned a decision victory over Steve Forbes and Carlos Quintana disposed of Deandre Latimore via knockout in the sixth round.
