LAS VEGAS: Floyd Mayweather Jr. used his speed and accuracy to win a unanimous decision Saturday night over a game Miguel Cotto in one of his toughest fights ever.

Mayweather dominated late, rocking Cotto in the 12th round to pull out a win and remain unbeaten in 43 fights. But it wasn't easy, with Mayweather getting his nose bloodied and Cotto fighting until the final bell.

Mayweather won Cotto's 154-pound (69.9-kilogram) title in the fight, which two judges scored 117-111 and the third 118-110.

The decision was roundly booed by the crowd at the MGM Grand arena, which cheered wildly every time Cotto landed a punch.
