NEW YORK -- Concerning challenger Miguel Cotto, there were a number of major questions to be answered entering Saturday night's challenge for the WBA junior middleweight (154 pounds) title owned by Yuri Foreman.
Among them, how much did the 29-year-old former three-time champion have left, given the bloody wars he had during an 11th-round knockout loss to Antonio Margarito in July 2008, a split-decision victory over Joshua Clottey in June 2009 and November's 12-round stoppage loss to Manny Pacquiao that dethroned him as WBO welterweight (140 pounds) king?
All three bouts left Cotto with severe cuts and bruises, including one particularly cavernous gash over a left eye that routinely streamed blood down his left cheek.
