R1- Linares controls this feel out round by outlanding Cotto with the jab, scoring with his right hand at will, and beating his opponent to the punch at all times. Not much offense comes from Cotto and even less success is created for him.

R2- The output increases from Cotto, who is able to score with several jabs. However, nothing he is doing is gaining him the edge over Linares, who still looks sharper. After using some jabs to set it up, Linares lands a mean right cross on the button, sinking Cotto to the canvas. Linares stays calm and composed in his follow up, landing another flush right before the end of the round.

R3- Linares is landing jabs to the body and right hands to the head. Suddenly, another right to the chin stuns Cotto. Cotto backpedals and Linares pounces, sending him crashing to the canvas with a right through the guard. Despite seeming unsteady, Cotto is allowed to continue. Linares proceeds to pick off big shots on Cotto, who tries to get the attention of the referee after a low blow. As he should, Linares takes advantage by landing right hands and left hooks upstairs. After Cotto clinches, he takes a series of clubbing rights to the head, slowly falling and causing Linares to tumble to the canvas with him. Both men rise, but Cotto clearly has no legs, as he falls back to the canvas. This was an easy win for Linares, like I expected as well as a career-ending fight for Abner Cotto. Despite Linares looking and feeling good as he says and JoJo saying ahead of time that he deserved a title shot should he look the part, sudden disaster would occur for him next.
