Cotto said he felt for Foreman having to continue fighting.
Cotto’s new record is now 35-2 and this stoppage win is his 28th.
Cotto gave Foreman a lot of pressure early on the fight, he immediately showed Foreman what a former 3-time world champion can do. Foreman suffered a couple of falls on the seventh round that looked like they were slips but Cotto made use of it to make the kill in the eight round where Foreman’s corner threw the towel.
