MIGUEL COTTO insists he was the worthy winner of last Saturday’s (November 21) epic clash with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Speaking on the La Perrera show on SalSoul 99.1 FM on Tuesday morning in Puerto Rico, the former WBC middleweight king said: “We have the fight recorded and if you see it 300 times, you’ll see the same thing: Miguel Cotto defeated ‘Canelo’ Alvarez”.

Cotto added: “I went out with purpose on September 25 to train to do the best in the fight. Those who saw the fight, saw the effort I made and I’m satisfied. What happened, has passed. Now you have to look forward with optimism and not be intimidated by this kind of thing.” The 35-year-old four-weight champion also downplayed the 10-year age gap between him and the 25-year-old Canelo: “The ten years difference was nothing, we did what we planned. We were very comfortable and I feel good about the way I fought and for my 35 years. I just do my job.”
