An All Out War with Joshua Clottey
In one of the most action-packed fights of his career, Miguel Cotto faced the Ghanaian fighter in front of over 17,000 at the Garden. Cotto scored a knockdown in round one, however, in the third round an accidental head clash opened a severe cut over Cotto’s left eye. The boxer was able to control the pace up to round six, when Clottey then went on to controlled the offensive, noticing that Cotto was unable to see right punches. During the last rounds, Cotto made the adjustments and fought from the outside. The strategy would work and get him a closely contested split decision.
