Default Re: Maybe cotto did beat mayweather

I had Floyd by an easy UD. 10-2 or 9-3. Cotto landed nothing more than jabs. Floyd was landing crisp counters and was the aggressor / dictator of the fight.

Cotto having Floyd against the ropes doesn't mean he dictated the fight. Yes, he pinned Floyd, but pinning someone usually indicates landing/trading punches and that's something Cotto was unable to do (other than a few jabs). All the while Floyd landed counter/cleaner punches. So I believe Floyd dictated the pace/style of that fight, despite being against the ropes for nearly half the fight.
