Mayweather Beats Cotto in Drag Out

In one of the toughest bouts of his career, Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeated Miguel Cotto Saturday night in Las Vegas. “You’re a hell of a champion,” the victorious pugilist told Cotto after the match. “You’re the toughest guy I ever fought.” Mayweather, who was guaranteed a record $32 million minimum pot for the fight, will report to a county jail in a few weeks to serve a three-month domestic-abuse sentence. “He’s a tough competitor,” Mayweather told reporters of the Puerto Rican Cotto, who stuck with Mayweather through 12 rounds. “He came to fight, he didn’t just come to survive. I dug down and fought him back.”
