Paulie Malignaggi Decisions Jose Miguel Cotto Over Ten

By Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Former junior welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (29-4, 6KOs), who now fights as a welterweight, won a clear ten round unanimous decision over Jose Miguel Cotto (32-3, 24KOs). The scores were 99-91, 99-91 and 97-93.

Cotto was able to finds spots of success with his heavier punches, but he allowed Malignaggi to outwork him in most of the rounds. Malignaggi was buzzed a few times, and suffered a cut above his left eye in the fifth round, but he was never seriously rocked and used a much better workrate to win the rounds.

[B][I]Good fight & a good win for Malignaggi & now he got some sort of revenge against the Cotto's by beating his older brother!! José Cotto did land some good shots, but compared to what Malignaggi was throwing & landing…
