Ya I watched the fight while I was out, couldn't hear the commentary at all. Cotto came out a lot stronger than I have seen him in recent (if any) fights. He wanted to muscle floyd and keep him on the ropes, kept f****** pushing his head into floyds chest lol. Floyds defense is just too good though. Cotto was landing a lot of shots in the earlier rounds...I actually thought he was winning the fight by the 5th round. But Floyd was getting his jabs in well and kept throwing what looked like uppercuts whenever he had openings. Don't remember exactly when but around the 7th, 8th round Floyd just was too loose for Cotto and was able to use his footwork to get off the ropes and keep the fight more toward the center. Once Floyd was able to do this he was basically landing blows whenever he wanted. Hit Cotto in the ear too many damn times to count. Any time Cotto tried throwing a flurry at Floyd he would just duck them off and block anything that would of done damage. Honestly Floyd is just too good once he figured the fight out its f****** over. But Cotto looked like he had trained hard, fought the best fight he possibly could of. The 12th was also a crazy round for Floyd, looked fresh as can be. Even buckled Cotto's legs with a few shots. I wouldn't say they are protecting his record, he is just too much of a technician for these guys who want to overpower him to beat. Personally compared to Mannys last fight against Marquez I would say Floyd was a lot more impressive.
i gotta give cotto credit he came to fight...1st mayweather jr fight i seen n yrs his opponent gave him real ompetition....that boy who beat moseley gon' be a prob'......no need to protect his record dude is the best fighter i seen period...
hello no...>FLoyd won that s***...masterfully....Lost 3 rounds in a row where it got sketchy. But, no way are they protecting records if anything they would try to gv Floyd a random L.... He's a technical beast.
I was at the fight... S*** was crazy, floyd came out solid cotto barely even thru any punches round 1, but then he kicked it into gear. Caught mayweather with some good shots, even got floyds nose drippin blood. But once again floyd adjusted and landed some nasty clean right hooks. Defensively floyd looked decent but not like the floyd im used to, its like he couldnt get cottos timing down or something but his shoulder roll and head movement still avoided alotta big shots. The fans would heer like crazy even tho cotto would only labd 1 outta 5 shots he thru at floyd against the ropes... All in all both fighters did a good job, gonna be the fight of the year imo.
