This November 2009 bout was won by Pacquiao via a 12th round TKO. It essentially featured Cotto agreeing to go down in weight by a lot, giving up a lot of the purse split and eventually losing his WBA Light Middleweight Title. All in all, not a great night for the Puerto Rican fighter.
This November 2010 bout, one that netted Pacquiao his eighth world title in an eighth different division, etched the champ’s name into the record books.
