Cotto defeats Mosley via unanimous decision

We'll have an extended recap tomorrow morning, but for now, here are the quick results:

Miguel Cotto defeats Shane Mosley via unanimous decision, scores of 115-113, 115-113, 116-113. I had it 116-112 for Cotto.

It was a phenomenal fight. Just outstanding. Every bit as good as advertised.

Antonio Margarito scored a first round TKO of Golden Johnson, roaring past him with bomb after bomb after bomb, flooring him three times. It was the vicious Margarito of old.

Joel Casamayor retained the lightweight title with a split decision win over Jose Armando Santa Cruz. This was a deplorable decision. Expect paragraphs on this tomorrow. I had it 117-110 for Santa Cruz.  Lederman had it 118-109. This was trademark scoring horseshit, and those three judges should be ashamed. What on earth were they watching? Casamayor did nothing but circle and clinch. Ugh -- again, I'll have more on that garbage tomorrow. The fight was also absolutely horrible, too.

Victor Ortiz knocked out Carlos Maussa at 1:15 of the first round.

So what we had was a magnificent, brutal main event, plus a horrible fight and worse decision, and two first round knockouts.

Over in France, David Haye beat Jean-Marc Mormeck via 7th round TKO to win the RING, WBC and WBA cruiserweight titles. Haye was down in the fourth. Sounds like another fight that lived up to its potential.
