Miguel Ángel Cotto of Puerto Rico is a multi-division champion, the younger brother of contender Jose Miguel Cotto and cousin of Abner Cotto.

As an amateur, Cotto represented Puerto Rico in the lightweight and light welterweight divisions at various international events including the 1999 Pan American Games, the 2000 Summer Olympics and the 1998 Junior World Championships where he won a silver medal.

Now at 30, Miguel is a ten-year pro. A former WBO and WBA welterweight world champion and former WBO junior welterweight world champion, he is a veteran of 18 world championship fights - his last coming against Ricardo Mayorga, whom Cotto beat by TKO in the first defense of the WBA super welterweight title he took from Yuri Foreman in 2010.

Cotto has been Puerto Rico's brightest star and biggest draw in the ring for several years, has fought and beaten some of the sport's biggest names, and has already had a Hall of Fame career.

He has repeatedly fought top opposition, including current or former world champions Manny Pacquiao (TKOby12), champions Joshua Clottey (W12), Antonio Margarito (TKOby11), Shane Mosley (W12), Zab Judah (TKO11), Carlos Quintana (TKO5), Paulie Malignaggi (W12), Ricardo Torres (KO7), DeMarcus Corley (TKO5), Randall Bailey (TKO6), Carlos Maussa (TKO8), and Cesar Bazan (TKO11). He has also beaten previously undefeated contender Kelson Pinto (TKO6), as well as veteran contenders Muhammad Abdulaev (TKO9), Victoriano Sosa (TKO4) and Lovemore Ndou (W12).
