Hennessy, the world’s best-selling Cognac, presents six-time championship boxer and philanthropist Miguel Cotto with the 14th annual Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège Award following the last match of his accomplished boxing career. The private dinner celebration took place at Hunt & Fish Club in New York City.

Manny Gonzalez, Senior Director, Multicultural Marketing, Moët Hennessy presented Cotto with the award along with a donation to support the boxer’s ongoing community...

Now in its 14th year, the Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège Award is bestowed to individuals who are not only masters at their craft, but have achieved unparalleled levels of accomplishment and use that success to inspire and give back to their community through leadership, service and mentorship.

Cotto, who recently retired after one of the most storied careers in modern boxing, began his professional fighting in 2001 and has since risen above every obstacle, injury and adversary to leave an indelible mark on the sport – with a 41-6-0 record and winning championship belts in four weight classes. In addition to his showmanship in the ring – Cotto has shown just as much passion outside of the ring, empowering Latinos through his Fundacion El Angel de Miguel Cotto charity – where most recently he's spent his efforts in helping the Hurricane Maria recovery across the island of his home of Puerto Rico.

"It is a true honor to be presented with the Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège Award," said Cotto. "Like Hennessy, I am dedicated to empowering future generations, and being recognized for these efforts is both humbling and inspiring."

During the evening, Hennessy also announced its donation, on behalf of Miguel Cotto, to the Hispanic Federation to help support his continued efforts to rebuild and bring relief to Puerto Rico, and to the Fundacion El Angel de Miguel Cotto to support the boxer's ongoing community efforts.

PR government needs to honour him too with a medal or sports personality award, alcohol companies aren't exactly the pillar of the community, he should have declined it: [URL="https://www.alcoholrehabguide.org/alcohol/crimes/"]https://www.alcoholrehabguide.org/alcohol/crimes/[/URL]
