Miguel Cotto Net Worth

Miguel Cotto Net Worth. Miguel Ángel Cotto Vázquez (born October 29, 1980) is a Puerto Rican former professional boxer who competed from 2001 to 2017. He is a multiple-time world champion, and the first Puerto Rican boxer to win world titles in four weight classes, from light welterweight to middleweight. In 2007 and 2009, he reached a peak active pound for pound ranking of seventh by The Ring magazine. Cotto started out his career as a hard-hitting pressure fighter, but evolved over the years into a more refined boxer-puncher as he moved up in weight.

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 Olympics, and the 1998 Junior World Championships; the latter in which he won a lightweight silver medal. Having begun his professional career in 2001, Cotto defeated Kelson Pinto for the WBO light welterweight title in 2004. He made six successful defenses before vacating the title to move up in weight. In his first welterweight fight, in 2006, Cotto defeated Carlos Quintana for the vacant WBA title. He successfully defended it four times before a career first loss to Antonio Margarito in 2008. The following year, Cotto won the vacant WBO welterweight title and defended it once before losing it to Manny Pacquiao in the same year.

In 2010, he moved up to light middleweight and won the WBA title from Yuri Foreman. Having been promoted by the WBA to Super champion status, Cotto won a 2011 rematch against Margarito. He lost the WBA (Super) title in 2012 to Floyd Mayweather Jr., in one of the most anticipated fights in modern boxing history. The year would end on a further sour note for Cotto, as he lost in an upset to Austin Trout. Two years later, Cotto defeated Sergio Martínez to win the unified WBCRing, and lineal middleweight titles. In doing so, he became the first four-weight world champion from Puerto Rico. In 2015, he defended his titles once before losing to Canelo Álvarez. After more than a year of inactivity, Cotto returned in 2017 to become the WBO light middleweight champion, but lost the title in his final fight to Sadam Ali.

Miguel Cotto is a Puerto-Rican-born boxer who has a net worth of $25 million. Cotto’s 17-year career spanned from 2001 to 2017, and he won multiple world championships during this period. He is the first Puerto Rican boxer in history to win world titles in four different weight classes, ranging from light welterweight to middleweight.

After representing his home nation of Puerto Rico as an amateur fighter in a number of championships (including the 2000 Olympics), Cotto began his professional career in 2001. He then defeated Kelson Pinto for the WBO light welterweight title in 2004 and defended the title six times. He was never defeated in his defenses, but he did vacate his title to move to welterweight. He gained the WBA welterweight title in 2006 and defended it four times before losing to Antonio Margarito. Although he subsequently won the vacant WBO welterweight title in 2009, he lost it to Manny Pacquiao later that year.

After moving up once again to light middleweight, Miguel won the WBA title and eventually lost it to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2012. This was one of the most famous matches in boxing history. This would prove to be the beginning of the end for Cotto, as a number of disappointing results eventually led to his retirement in 2017.
