Default Cotto's defining moment?

Hey Cotto fans just a quick question, in your opinion what was Junito's defining moment as a professional boxer?

Was it TKOing Cesar Bazan in the 11th to capture the WBC?
Maybe when he had to pick himself of the canvas and stop Torres in the 7th.
What about busting Malignaggi's jaw in MSG?
Stopping Zab Judah in the 11th was a nice fight and got him much respect.
Personally, I'm thinking the way he outboxed Mosley to a 12 round UD was his career defining moment.
But some might feel his revenge on Margo?

What do you guys think? I would really like to hear some Boricua opinions on this.

I think defeating Margo was the beggining of a new chapter in his life along with redemption.

The loss to Margarito was a huge profile fight. Cotto's rivalry with Margarito will be remembered for years to come. Beating Shane Mosley was also huge.

I would say its a tie between recovering from the Ricardo Torres early KD and the Mosley fight. The prior was a real test on elite level and the latter solidified his position in the elite

He did not defeat Bazan for the WBC title. Cotto has never had a WBC title.
