Default Re: What was your scorecard for Pacquiao-Cotto?

Thing that I did not remember was just how biased HBO crew were that night. F-ck, they were biased. Cotto snapping Manny's head back with jabs, landing solid left hooks and crosses. But all you hear is "second coming of Henry Armstrong".
Cotto blocks a flurry and lands a counter left: "Manny is a machine".
Cotto dances around the ring and potshots Pacquiao in the 8th: "Cotto looks like he's given up".
Cotto blocks and slips a flurry against the ropes: "Miguel can't see the punches coming, the corner should stop this"

It was a great fight, and a great performance by Pacquiao but jesus, HBO suck. If you listen to audio only you would think Pac-man put a picture of Cotto on a speed bag and hit that for 12 rounds.
Think I gave Cotto two rounds. Have not watched it in a long time but wasn't Cotto down in the third so I don't see how you can give him the round. He did well the rest of the round but you can't score the round for him.
