Cotto Vs. Mayweather Fight Results: Floyd Mayweather Jr. wins vs. Miguel Cotto by unanimous decision

Floyd Mayweather Jr. remains undefeated when he won vs. Miguel Cotto in their WBA Super Welterweight Title Fight held on "Cinco de Mayo" May 5, 2012 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, the same venue for Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley fight on June 9.

The result of the Mayweather Vs. Cotto "Ring Kings" fight was predicted by many to be in favor of Mayweather, winning via unanimous decision.

And it did happen, 34-year-old American boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. won over 31-year-old Puerto Rican boxer Miguel Cotto as judges scored: 117-111, 118-110 and 117-111. It was televised by HBO Pay-Per-View (PPV).

Mayweather's new record is now 43 wins, still with no loss, while Cotto now has 37 wins and 3 losses.

Cotto's previous 2 defeats were an 11th Round TKO loss to Antonio Margarito in June 2008 and a 12th Round TKO loss to our very own Manny Pacquiao back in November 2009.

On this Cotto vs. Mayweather fight, Cotto was guaranteed $8M while Floyd Mayweather Jr had $32M guaranteed paycheck, not counting their shares on PPV.

It's both Cotto and Mayweather's biggest paychecks ever, with the latter's paycheck being regarded as the biggest ever in boxing history.

After the fight, instead of celebrating over Mayweather's victory, many Twitter users opted to tweet about "Mayweather Vs. Pacquiao" and made it to Top 5 Trending Topics Worldwide in the said micro-blogging site.

They're possibly hoping that it's the next fight for Mayweather, and that Manny Pacquiao will finally be the one to beat Mayweather.

As long as Mayweather keeps rejecting the proposed 50-50 split in revenues by Manny's camp (he wanted a higher share than Manny), the fight is impossible to happen.

Also generating more buzzes online than Mayweather's victory is the special appearances of American rapper 50 Cent and Canadian singing sensation Justin Bieber in the said event.
