Floyd Mayweather, quite possibly the greatest boxer on planet Earth right now, continued cementing his status as the king of the ring with a 12-round unanimous decision victory over Miguel Cotto last night (Sat., May 5, 2012) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mayweather started fast, taking a commanding lead into the middle frames. Cotto, however, wouldn't go away without first making it a fight, as he came storming back with a smart strategy and even better execution. Ultimately, though, "Money" proved to be just too good to overcome as he earned the decision win on scores of 117-111, 117-111, and 118-110 to become the new super welterweight champion. Is there anyone who can stop this man, Maniacs?
