In what was another glorious victory for welterweight powerhouse Floyd Mayweather Jr., Miguel "Junito" Cotto was able to prove his worth as one of the more talented fighters in the sport of boxing today.

The fight between Mayweather and Cotto was one for the ages, to say the least.

Lasting all 12 rounds against the 43-0 Mayweather Jr., Cotto was able to withstand multiple blows to the body and up top. Not to mention, he gave Mayweather a hefty amount of shots to think about throughout the contest.

What made the bout such a significant one for the talent is that not only was it a fight in which he lasted until the end, but he also has now faced both Manny Pacquiao and Mayweather in efforts where he was able to last 12 rounds in each.

Fighters don't normally find this type of success against these top-caliber talents, as Cotto has proven he is certainly one of the more skilled fighters of our generation and to ever grace the game.

The Puerto Rican sensation with the top-notch performance is proving that he is ready to take on Pac-Man once more. Mayweather found Cotto to be his toughest opponent, which says a lot about just how special his talent is.

A rematch against Pacquiao could be the difference maker for Cotto's career, as he still has yet to prove he can take down Filipino's finest.

It would take a plethora of training, preparation and strategy, but after putting forth such a memorable performance in Las Vegas on May 5, Cotto would be making the right move asking Pacquiao to put on a part two.
