Cotto came through a lot in that fight only to be denied seeing the final bell, the ref was likely a corrupt prick, the usual in boxing.
You don't deserve to "go the distance" by running
Cotto was getting beaten like he owed pac money and was running away in fear.
The ref made the right call, cotto had mentally quit by that point
Stop saying it was tactical! You can see the terror in his eyes
That was primal survival instinct, nothing more
