Pacquiao beats Cotto

I watched Pacquiao's fight on free live stream at UStream. As expected, Pacquiao made another history after bagging the welterweight title.

Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao made history Sunday (Manila time) when he bagged the welterweight title, his seventh in as many divisions, after defeating Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto, the reigning champion in that division.

Pacquiao has won the world championships in the flyweight (112 pounds), super bantamweight (122 lb), featherweight (126 lb), super featherweight (130 lb), lightweight (135 lb), and light welterweight (140 lb).

No man has won seven world titles in seven weight divisions and only five boxers have won six – Pacquiao, Oscar de la Hoya, Thomas Hearns, Hector Camacho, and James Toney. source
