Cotto’s final words literally brought tears to my eyes as he was the one that got me into boxing. To be able to watch his last fight has made me feel sad, yet grateful. Thank you @RealMiguelCotto. #CottoAli

Miguel Cotto fought five rounds tonight with a torn bicep, an injury that would end any NFL player’s season, no questions asked.

I wanna cry bruh 😭 Miguel Cotto is officially retired

Excellent scorecards. Judges nailed it. Not the way it was scripted, not the farewell Cotto wanted, but fitting and emotionally satisfying in its own way. And boxing will move forward with good young fighters like Sadam Ali.
