Cotto Overwhelmed Sluggish Geale, Says CompuBox

All Cotto.  He doubled up the sluggish Geale in total punches landed, and also landed 8 jabs per round thru the first three rounds.  Cotto closed the show by landing 17 of 34 power shots in round four.

Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto retained his World Boxing Council middleweight world title with a crushing victory over Australia's Daniel Geale. Cotto knocked down Geale twice in the fourth round before referee Harvey Dock stopped the bout at 1:28 of the fourth.

Cotto dominated from the opening bell in front of a crowd of 12,100 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Cotto landed a devastating left hook early in the fourth and then finished off the challenger soon after with a series of body shots that sent the Aussie to the canvas for a second time. Geale got up but was obviously unable to continue and Dock called a halt.

The 34-year-old Cotto improved to 40-4 with 33 knockouts and the win now sets up a likely showdown with Mexico's Saul "Canelo" Alvarez possibly later this year.

Geale, 34, fell to 31-4 with 16 knockouts. The former world champion suffered his third defeat in his last five fights.

[QUOTE=HEND;15770544]If someone wants to compare: [url]http://www.boxingscene.com/forums/view.php?pg=golovkin-geale-compubox[/url] The two fight almost ended the same time with the +1 minute in the first round of GGG-Geale. Cotto-Geale: 10:28 GGG-Geale: 9:47[/QUOTE] Probably about as long as Cotto would last against GGG.

I don't think we can glean that much from the compubox stats. For one, compubox is notoriously inaccurate. However Golovkin is a lot more aggressive than Cotto. Geale was forced to eithter try and gain GGG's respect or get overwhelmed,…
