Unbeaten WBA welterweight champion Miguel Cotto (31-0, 25 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over former three-time world champion Shane Mosley (44-5, 37 KOs) on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Cotto landed the better shots in round one and most of round two, however Mosley landed some good rights at the end of the second. Both landed big shots in round three with Cotto momentarily rocked by a right hand. More good exchanges in the fourth, slight edge to Cotto. Round five was close, but Cotto appeared to be taking control in the sixth. Mosley adjusted and tried boxing from the outside in a sloppy seventh round. The boxing continued in the eighth as Mosley moved and Cotto pursued...close round. Mosley hurt Cotto in the ninth round but Cotto fought back gamely at the end of the round. Mosley dominated the first half of the tenth, but Cotto rallied in the second half. Mosley pressed in the eleventh, but Cotto landed some great counterpunches to win the round. Possibly thinking he had the fight won, Cotto was staying out of range in the twelfth, although he landed two good rights. Scores were 115-113, 115-113, 116-113.

its a toughie for both, its cotto's toughest fight to date and mosleys most likely toughest fight at the moment besides mayweather but cotto may punish him more than mayweather woudl. This is goign to be real interesteing but i never count cotto out.

If sugar shane is gonna win this fight he will have to move around constantly. He cant stand infront of Cotto and fight his fight. Mosley has to jump around move jab punch in combinations and get out. Get in and get out. To do that hes has to show up in the shape of his life. And this fight is going to happen at ww :D thats great

You are soooooooooooo right. Boxing is climbing back up, im so sick of this UFC ****!!! This is a huge fight and if Mayweather/Hatton do fight, not official and from what i hear Mayweathers camp has the contract written up just waiting on Hatton's camp. But the two winners of these fights when they face off it will be the biggest fight in a decade aside from Cinco De Mayweather. But i got to go with Cotto, i love shane very good resume. But Cotto is too strong, and can take a punch. Zab hits harder then Shane and most of the boxers around that class. So im calling a 8th round KO by Cotto.

Mosley has an iron chin, hes been in there with some pretty big hitters. I honestly can't see Cotto stopping a pro like Mosley, i actually see Mosley taking him to school abit in the early rounds and hanging on in the later rounds to win a close SD. If Mosley comes out fast i wouldnt be surprised if he took Cotto out early.

Really? So i change it KO in the 11th round and if not a UD. Mosley is good i just think Cotto has too much power for him. And Cotto did well against a quick fighter (Zab Judah) and (Paul Malinaggi). Thats why i give the edge to Cotto. IMO it should be Cotto/Hatton and Mayweather/Mosley

Cotto-Hatton would be a war, but Cotto would bully Hatton on the inside he'd be physically alot stronger. Cotto could stop Mosley but id be surprised, perhaps after 11 rounds of a punishment body attack Mosley wont be able to take it anymore, but it will definetly be down to accumulation rather than one punch.

Cotto takes a while to get going, so i see Mosley sweeping the first 3-4 rounds and then i see a strong comeback from Cotto. I just dont know if it will be enough against a brilliant fighter like SSM.

cotto is strong. and he is relentless. Cotto has problem with pressure fighters. cotto easily nuetralizes fast hands and zab seems to be faster and stronger than mosley at this point in his career. cotto wins most likely by decision. Forrest almost stopped mosley, so cotto can, but i dunno if he will.

You could say Zab ALMOST stopped Cotto in the early rounds:laugh: Seriously, the guys who have done well against Mosley used the jab to good effect, Mosley is fast and has alot of power, and unlike Zab he fights for 12 rounds not just the first 4.

I agree, this is one fight i cannot see disappointing at all, both guys are quality fighters and it should be an intriguing fight. I honestly see Mosley winning a decision, IMO he is a level above Judah and will pose alot more problems for Cotto.
