Mexico's Saul "Canelo" Alvarez  defeated Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto by unanimous decision Saturday night at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, to claim the WBC Middleweight title.

The judges scored it: 117-111, 119-109 and 118-110 in favour of the Mexican with a record of (45-1-1, 32 knockouts). 

Miguel Cotto came out smoking in the first round of the WBC middleweight title bout, jabbing,  protecting his head and waiting for an opportunity to give him an early victory. That move gave him the first round victory of 10-9.

However, all that changed from the second round as Canelo’s left hand jab was all that was needed to open the round which eventually led to him becoming victorious in the title bout.
