NEW YORK — In an event that was centered around Miguel Cotto’s retirement, Sadam Ali spoiled the post victory party and was able to gain the close unanimous decision and capture his first world title.

By scores of 115-113 (twice) and 116-112, Ali secured the final four rounds of the bout on all three judges’ cards. Cotto, after hearing the decision, did not have any ill will towards Ali and seemed to accept that notion of not only the sixth loss of his professional career, but the final matchup.

Ali (26-1, 14 KOs), in his first bout at 154 pounds, won the WBO world title and brought an end to the 17-year career of the 37-year-old Cotto.
