Cotto-Canelo Result: Canelo Alvarez, the new lineal middleweight champion

Saul Canelo Alvarez (46-1-1, 32 KOs) is the new lineal middleweight champion of the world.

It was a highly technical battle. It is a fight wherein every exchange might break into an all-out brawl. But either Canelo or Cotto (40-5, 33 KOs) reach the breaking point. They both stick to their tactical plan. The result was a mixture of boxing science in execution and entertaining display of action -- more than enough to wake you up --  if you fall asleep during the Rigondeux-Francisco snooze-fist.

Canelo won wide from all the three judges' scorecards at ringside against Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto. The official scores were: 117-111, 119-110, and 118-110.

More detailed post-fight recap soon.
