There’s no question that boxer Miguel Cotto’s swift knockout of Daniel Geale in Saturday night’s World Boxing Championship makes him the one to beat. But does it make him kosher?

Cotto sports a tattoo of the Orthodox Union’s kosher symbol, a circle with the letter “U” in the middle, near his right collarbone. Elie Seckbach of the boxing website ES News reports that Cotto chose the emblem as a tribute to a Jewish friend in New York.
