I wanted "Cotto" to win, but found myself rooting for "Clottey". With the best seats in the house, the edge of my bed, I watched in slight disbelief when "Cotto" was announced the winner. 116-111,(Cotto) 114-113 (Clottey) 115-112 (Cotto), was how the judges scored the fight. Going a full 12 rounds, with "Clottey" being knocked down in round 1, "Cotto's" accidental headbutt and left eye split in round 3, "Cotto" throw'n "Clottey" over his back and hurting "Clottey's" left knee, it was some how easy to see why the fight was scored like it was.

All and all "Miguel Cotto" was the favorite in Madison Square Gardens, "Joshua The Grand Master Clottey" feels he won, and is demanding a rematch, I agree, but for now "Cotto" still remains the Welter Weight Champion Of The world.
