2005-09-24 Miguel Cotto w co 7 Ricardo Torres, Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBO. Referee: David Fields. In a topsy-turvy affair that included five knockdowns, having dropped Torres (140) in the first the champion was battered all over the ring in the second round before being put down for the first time in his career. The third was relatively quiet by their standards, but in the fourth Cotto (140) again put Torres on the floor, only for the latter to come back firing heavy shots. It couldn’t last and in the sixth Torres was again floored and although he got back up to last the round out the seventh saw him finally ground down and counted out on the 1.52 mark, a left hook being the finisher.
