Miguel Cotto & Tito Trinidad lift Puerto Rico back to the top

By Kevin Davis

The island of Puerto Rico has produced some of boxing, most beloved champions, know for it rich tradition of skillful fighters, it has always had a champion that stood the test of time, with others to follow. For the last two years Puerto Rican boxing has fell of the map with very little developement going on, and rushed talent. Lou DiBella rushed in and brought us fighters that wasn't quite ready and now Felix Verdajo is being slowly worked up, the gapin between Miguel Cotto and the next PR, superstar are decades away, so it seems.

Saturday night Miguel Cotto took things into his own hands, with almost every boxing expert writing him off, he pulls off his most dominating performance. Dethroning the lineal middleweight champion of the world Sergio Martinez, was the biggest win in Cotto career, since he defeated Antonio Margarito, in their rematch that took place in December of 2011. Puerto Rican fans were already a buzz because of Felix Tito Trinidad going into the Hall Of Fame the same week of this major event. The writing was on the wall that night for a major outcome and we got it. Puerto Rico needed this as they had fell almost off the map, for the big stage, and this victory says maybe Cotto can still around a little bit longer until the next one in ready.
