Pacquiao vs. Cotto

Pacquiao knocked Cotto to the canvas twice, with a quick right hand in round 2 and a left in round 4 — punches that Cotto admits he didn’t see coming.   In the last few rounds Cotto seemed to be near a TKO loss several times as Pacquiao battered him using his superior speed and timing.  Cotto danced away from Pacquiao who motioned for him to come forward and fight, but Cotto was in survival mode and showed little interest in mixing it up.

When Pacquiao pinned Cotto on the ropes and landed a combination at 55 seconds of the 12th round referee Kenny Bayless had seen enough and stopped the fight. Some fans thought it should have been stopped sooner.

Pacquiao extends his record to 50-3-2, 38 KOs.  Cotto is now 34-2, 27 KOs.
