Description : Here we have an original full-size MGM Grand Las Vegas, onsite main event boxing fight poster for Miguel Cotto vs. Ricardo Mayorga "billed as Relentless", for the WBA Super Welterweight championship. The bout was held on March 12, 2011, at MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.

Ricardo Mayorga wanted to brawl all night long. Miguel Cotto saved his big punching for the final round. Cotto fought with discipline for 11 rounds before unleashing a vicious left hook in the 12th round Saturday night that put an exclamation point on his successful defense of his 154-pound title against the wild-swinging Mayorga. The hook dropped Mayorga to the canvas and he quit a few seconds later.

Cotto was a big favorite to retain the title, but Mayorga fought a competitive fight and landed well in flurries to the head. He took more punches than he gave out, though, with Cotto outscoring him 249-176 in total punches scored at ringside. Before the final round, Cotto's trainer, Emanuel Steward, told his fighter to make sure he kept going forward and that he could stop a tiring Mayorga. He did just that, though Cotto only had to remain on his feet in the final round to win.

"I told myself, 'keep calm and be myself,'" Cotto said. "He has very strong hands and punches that hurt."
