Cotto back on top!

Former two division world champion Miguel Cotto (35-2, 28 KOs) has taken over another division, dethroning previously unbeaten WBA super welterweight champion Yuri Foreman (28-1, 8 KOs) in nine rounds on Saturday night in the first fight card at New York City’s famed Yankee Stadium site in 34 years. Now trained by Emanuel Steward, Cotto looked extremely sharp outboxing Foreman over the first six rounds and in the seventh stanza Foreman’s right knee buckled compromising his mobility. Someone at ringside threw in a towel in the eighth round and people entered the ring, but referee Arthur Mercante Jr. threw everyone out and resumed the fight. Cotto continued to batter Foreman dropping him with a left to the body in round nine and the bout was then waved off. Time was :42.
