Pacquiao Stops Cotto to Win the WBO Welterweight Title

LAS VEGAS -  Filipino icon Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao stopped his opponent, Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto during their match dubbed as ‘Firepower’ to capture the WBO Welterweight title.

Pacman‘s speed and power were way too much for Miguel Cotto, who knocked down twice during 3rd and 4th round before finally stopping him at 55 seconds of the 12th round.

“I didn’t know where the punches were coming from,” Cotto said. “And I didn’t protect myself from his punches.”

He was so dominant in the later rounds that Cotto was fighting backward most of the way, simply trying to survive. Pacquiao was credited with landing almost twice as many punches, Pacquiao 336 while Cotto 172.

Pacquiao is the only boxer who had 7 titles of different divisions under his belt and voted as No. 1 pound-for-pound boxer in the world by  Ring Magazine.

Congratulations Manny, for winning the WBO Welterweight title!
