Boxing icon Manny Pacquiao writes history when he beats Miguel Cotto winning his seventh title in seven weight classes. He fortifies his stature as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. The ring gladiator puts up another dominating performance knocking down Cotto twice and turning his face into a bloody mess before finally stopping him at 55 seconds of the 12th round.

Cotto fought gamely, but in the later rounds he was just trying to survive as blood flowed down his face and Pacquiao came after him relentlessly. Joe Santiago, Cotto’s trainer tried to stop the fight after the 11th round, but Cotto went back out to take even more punishment before a final flurry along the ropes prompted referee Kenny Bayless to end it. Cotto's wife and child, who were at ringside, left after the ninth round, unable to watch the beating any longer. They later accompanied him to a local hospital for a post-fight examination."I didn't know from where the punches were coming," Cotto said. "This is the last weight division for me," Pacquiao said. "It's history for me and more importantly a Filipino did it."
