Cotto Is Retiring, But Puerto Rico Producing More Champions


Bronx, NY: Puerto Rican champion, Miguel Cotto had the last fight of his glorious career last Saturday December 2nd and as a famous Salsa song from the great, Hector Lavoe goes: “Todo Tiene Su Final,” (everything has Its end), He lost to, Sadam Ali by unanimous decision.

Cotto had announced that he would retire after that fight and though it would have been great to see him walk away from boxing a champion winning his last fight it was not meant to be.

However, I believe the universe has other plans for Cotto and he will still be around boxing for a long time, not as a boxer, but training and promoting other up and coming boxing greats.  Alberto ‘the Explosive’ Machado (19-0, 16KO) and Angel ‘Tito’ Acosta (17-1, 17KO) are two upcoming Boricua boxers that boxing fans will be hearing much of in the future.
