Pacquiao vs. Cotto Results: Live Updates

It's now official, Winner of Pacquiao -Cotto Fight is no other than The Philippines' Pacman via a TKO of Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico. Modesty and greatness seldom go hand in hand, but in Manny Pacquiao they do. The brilliant and engaging Filipino mastered Miguel Cotto, stopping the Puerto Rican in the twelfth round to become WBO welterweight champion at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in the early hours of yesterday, then batted off all the plaudits being thrown at him with a shy smile. “I always tell myself that I am just an ordinary fighter, but I have to beat the best fighters and sometimes I can,” he said. Pacquiao, 30, is far from ordinary. When he beat Oscar De La Hoya in the same ring 11 months ago, comparisons were made to Henry Armstrong — a three-weight world champion when there were only eight titles. But as his reputation has grown, so have the comparisons. Pacquiao is now grouped with Muhammad Ali, for his impact outside the ring as much as his achievements in it.
