The decorated career of Miguel Cotto will come to an end on Saturday, December 2nd as he will defend the WBO super welterweight title against Sadam Ali at Madison Square Garden. Cotto, who has held world titles in the 140,147, 154, and 160 pound divisions, will try to go out as a champion if he gets the win against Ali.

Sadam has been in a world title fight before, but that was in the welterweight division against Jessie Vargas at the DC Armory in March of 2016. He lost via TKO in that bout and had to work his way back up the ranks at 147. He had scored a few wins after his TKO loss, including a win over Johan Perez in July to win a minor WBA belt. This would be his first fight at the 154 pound limit, however and he will going up against a future hall of famer in Cotto, who has faced the likes of Manny Pacquaio, Floyd Mayweather, Canelo Alvarez, Austin Trout, Antonio Margarito, and Sergio Martinez. Cotto’s last fight was on August 26th where he got a unanimous decision win over Yoshihiro Kamegai for the WBO super welterweight title.

It will be a big task for Ali to get the win, but if he does get it then it will be a big mark on his resume and open him up to get more significant fights in the future.
