against fellow superstar Sugar Shane Mosley.
one of 2007's most highly-anticipated fights, Cotto and Mosley gave

the rest of the world in February of 2011, when he traveled to
Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico to defeat the favored hometown favorite
Alvarez and capture his first world championship belt. He has since
