Three world titles in two different divisions isn’t the only legacy Miguel Cotto boasts. The Pride of Puerto Rico is also New York’s #1 box office attraction. Miguel’s six fights at Madison Square Garden, dating back to 2005, with many coming on the eve of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade, have sold approximately 93,000 seats, easily making him New York’s most popular – and bankable – fighter for the past decade. On June 5, Miguel will become New York’s first and only fighter to have sold over 100,000 tickets in this millennium. The breakdown is as follows: Muhammad Abdullaev – 12,000 (June 11, 2005), Paulie Malignaggi – 15,000 (June 10, 2006), Zab Judah – 21,000, a complete sellout (June 9, 2007), Shane Mosley – 18,000 (November 10, 2007), Michael Jennings – 12,000 (February. 21, 2009) and Joshua Clottey – 15,000 (June 13, 2009). 30,000+ are expected Saturday at Yankee Stadium.
