Miguel Cotto

Miguel Cotto scored a fourth round TKO over Daniel Geale on Saturday (June 6) to retain his WBC middleweight title.

The Puerto Rican boxing champ landed a huge left hook early in the fourth round that sent his opponent to the canvas. Shortly after, Cotto landed a dozen more punches and later, put him down again with a straight right... before Geale declined to continue.

"After the first round, I knew I needed to get more aggressive. I tried to do my best and I tried very hard," said Cotto after the fight. "The first knockdown I was going to throw the left hand and as I threw it, he put his right hand down and boom."

Cotto improved to 40-4 with his 33rd knockout, while Geale's record is now 31-4.

It's widely expected that Cotto will take on Canelo Alvarez next, in a megafight.
