Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez beat Miguel Cotto

Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez was dominant in winning a decision against Miguel Cotto, here is the video of the full fight.

It was a fight of momentum shifts and some telling power displays from Canelo, who got a deserved victory Saturday night against Cotto, becoming the new lineal middleweight champion and new (for now, at least) WBC middleweight titleholder on unanimous decision scores of 117-111, 118-110, and 119-109.

SB Nation scored the fight a much closer 115-113 for Alvarez.

The victory for Canelo (46-1-1, 32 KO) is not the issue, but rather the scores seeming pretty ridiculously wide, at least compared to those who scored the fight on social media, including members of the boxing media, fighters, and others in and around the boxing game.

Almost everyone seemed to agree that Alvarez won, but more of the scores were in the 115-113 and 116-112 range, representing a more competitive fight, which is what we saw.
