David Price became British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion last night after brushing aside Sam Sexton with a fourth round knock-out.

Fighting at Aintree, in his home-town of Liverpool, Price secured his 13th career win to keep his record as an unbeaten fighter intact.

The MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas proved a telling venue for a fight which will be remembered as a true classic, with Mayweather having to overcome his toughest opponent yet. In a month’s time Manny Pacquiao will face Timothy Bradley in the same ring, and Mayweather laid down a marker for ‘Pacman‘ with his most inspiring performance for a while.

Leading up to this fight ‘Money’ was continuingly respectful of Cotto’s credentials, labelling him as a future Hall of Famer and in his opinion an undefeated fighter, because of certain circumstances in his two professional defeats to Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito.
