Sept. 12, 2004 (SPORTZNEWZ) - After a series of punches, Kelson Pinto was down on the canvas for the third and final time in the fight. Miguel Cotto
had captured his first World Title. It was a great fight with good action, but in the end Pinto could not handle Cotto's power which sent him crashing
to the canvas on 3 occasions. The fight was stopped by the referee in the beginning of the 6th round after Pinto's corner threw in the towel to keep
their fighter from getting badly hurt. A new Boxing Star is born as Miguel Cotto is now the WBO Super Lightweight Champion of the World.
