Once again Miguel Cotto felt hard done by. As he alighted from the ring and tramped solemnly back to his dressing room in the bowels of the Mandalay Bay Events Centre, Las Vegas, the Puerto Rican veteran, to his continued chagrin, had someone to blame for his latest defeat – his fifth in 45 bouts – that had been meted out by the thudding fists of the popular Mexican Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez.
