“THEY say don’t fall in love with a fighter, but how could you not fall in love with Miguel Cotto‘s skill,” purred HBO commentator Jim Lampley as a young Cotto ripped hooks into Randall Bailey’s midsection way back in a 2004 WBO light-welterweight title defence.

Fast-forward 13 years, 25 fights, three weight classes and five world titles later and the 37-yead-old Puerto Rican idol brought down the closing curtain on his distinguished career, albeit this time as a hard-fought injured loser.

“If you knew how your story would go, would you travel the same path all over again?” ponders the brilliant narrator Liev Schreiber in this emotional postscript to the much-loved Cotto’s unforgettable journey. Enjoy.
