Welterweight superstar Miguel Cotto is a world champion again. Rebounding from his loss to Antonio Margarito last year, Cotto (33-1, 27 KOs) scored a fifth round KO over Michael Jennings (34-2, 16 KOs) in a clash for the vacant WBO welterweight belt on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Cotto stalked Jennings from the opening bell, dropping him twice with body shots in round four and finished him in the fifth. Time was 2:36.
