Lbs. 4 Lbs. Night of Champions May 6, 2012
It's called pay per view boxing for a purpose; to view the best of the best in boxing, pound for pound. That’s exactly what was served Saturday night in MGM Grand Las Vegas.
Four great bouts; two action packed under-cards, plus a co-feature, highlighting Saul Alvarez vs. Shane Mosley, which was pure artistry, and of course we waited with anxiety for the main fight Mayweather vs. Puerto Rican Champ Cotto.
The co-feature Canelo (40-0-1 29 kos) vs. Sugar Shane Mosley was a lopsided contest.
Canelo 21 years of age fought an old 40 year old Sugar Shane Mosley (46-8-1) with everything but the kitchen sink. An trial horse in the making, Sugar should retire to avoid further punishment to a great champion.
Canelo is a rising champ among the Mexican champs, controlled the bout at the tune of 11 out of 12 stanzas. A bright future!!
As for the main event, Cotto vs. Mayweather. It was a pier sixer, a classic and Cotto was tough!! Mayweather and Cotto are both future Hall of Fame boxers , both respected each other, no bad mouthing, no cursing, no punk.
Mayweather took most of the rounds. But, Cotto was a warrior, constantly cornering Mayweather and laid the leather on him, superbly cutting off the ring on Mayweather, which is a good strategy. Meanwhile Mayweather tattooed Cotto with everything; lefts, rights, uppercuts, and body shots, but Cotto was durable and tough!! A great Champ. The final results; Floyd “Money” Mayweather had a bloody nose and the decision. Miguel Cotto still a champ to the Puerto Rican fans.
Pure exciting boxing that night from where I was sitting I saw no punk all night.
Speaking of where I was sitting and on the subject of pound for pound champs. I watched these bouts in a spectacular supper club called Amnesia located 10007 4th Ave. in Bay Ridge Brooklyn N.Y. 11209 718 680-3131.
