Mayweather throwing 687 punches has alot to do with why the fight was entertaining lets not forget that either.
Then we agree that his statement is crap and he's just trying to take all the credit and not give Cotto his props too.
And if Mayweather was more defensive, it would only have helped Cotto. So basically, Mayweather did what he had to do to win...good for him. But Cotto was gonna take it to him no matter how he reacted.
