Last night, Caguas, Puerto Rico gave a touching farewell to its favorite son Miguel Cotto and wished him success in his February 21 WBO title bout against Michael Jennings at Madison Square Garden. The Municipal Administration and the Criollas of Caguas organized this ceremony that allowed the people to applaud the career of the champion who has brought so many triumphs to this city and to Puerto Rico. “We are sure that this title is yours and we’ll be here to celebrate when you bring it back to your city,” said mayor William Miranda Marin. Cotto expressed his gratitude for the words of support and confidence.
