WBA welterweight champion Miguel Cotto defeats Alfonso S. Gomez by TKO doctor stoppage in the fifth round. Cotto won all five round on last nights scorecard, in his overwhelming defeat of the former “Contender” reality star, Alfonso Gomez.
The Puertorrican boxer has made a name for himself with his fast pace, energetic fighting style. Three of his last eight opponents have not returned to boxing after losing to Cotto.
Floyd Mayweather Jr., the reigning pound-for-pound king in boxing, the WBC welterweight champion, the 2007 Boxing Writers Association of America Fighter of the Year and part-time pro wrestler, won’t fight either Miguel Cotto or Antonio Margarito.
Both Cotto and Margarito were brutally efficient during knockout victories Saturday in their respective welterweight title fights before an enthralled crowd of 9,724 at Boardwalk Hall.
