Ali Expects Critics to Discredit His Win Because Miguel Cotto is 'Old'

Cotto vs. Ali Fight results live updates highlights round-by-round score

He suffered an injury to his left biceps in the seventh round at Madison Square Garden (MSG) and struggled to make an impact in the fight. Ali turned in strong rounds in the ninth, 10th and 11th, looking more aggressive and fresher than Cotto.

Cotto finishes 41-6, and he looked his age far too often.

"I already know that's gonna come", Ali said during a post-fight press conference. "Something happened to my left bicep..." It is my last fight.

Numerous 12,371 fans booed the decision, and again when Ali spoke in the ring.

The Jets defense then almost let it all go to waste, allowing a 40-yard catch by speedster Tyreek Hill that flipped the field. The second-year player has been up and down versus the run this season and struggled in space against the pass.

"I worked hard for it". "They could have taken an easier fight".

The fans soon were cheering as Cotto made his final statements to his legion of fans. He usually answers questions in Spanish.

"Thank you for supporting me at every opportunity", Cotto told his fans.

BOXING legend Miguel Cotto has vowed to go out with a bang as he enters the ring for the final time this Saturday night (December 2). The 3rd brought back and forth action from both fighters leading to intelligent exchanges and a more dominant Cotto round.

Scott Frost To Leave UCF For Nebraska
One of his first moves as a head coach was to add players' names to the back of their jerseys again after O'Leary removed them. Of course, this news puts a damper on UCF winning the AAC Championship and completing an undefeated season.

Now, he becomes a force in this division. "And, again, we would have loved to go out with one of the bigger names, but the thing is they're not available at this point, and we want to stay busy", he said. I have been training since I was eight years old, and I am glad I got this win at MSG, in my hometown.

But despite the loss, Cotto was gracious in defeat and reiterated that this will be indeed his last fight in the ring - a performance that failed to sell out the famed arena like he has done in the past. Sure, he lost a handful of other bouts, but they were against such prime competition as Canelo Alvarez, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao.

Cotto's trainer, the great Freddie Roach, believes his fighter would have been up for such a challenge against either man but is now ready to deal with what is in front of him. Ali just as better.

Still, Vargas won the battle of unbeatens to hold onto his World Boxing Council super bantamweight title. He won all three of those rounds on all three scorecards. Moments later, Ali connected with a left hook and Cotto looked like he was in a bit of trouble, though he quickly recovered. He fought gamely, trying his best to apply pressure and bore his way in with compact power shots, and did make this a competitive farewell encounter, even rocking Ali with a straight right in the 6th. His WBO 154-pound belt was at stake tonight and it now belongs to Sadam Ali. Acosta, 27, of Puerto Rico, is 17-1-the only defeat was by decision to Tanaka in May-and all of his wins have been by knockout. Even if he didn't end it with a win, he still left the Garden as a champion. "But I didn't want to get over myself and get caught with a shot". Sadam won the fight. He was beaten by Donnie Nietes for the WBO championship in October 2015.
