Hence, you posting a bunch of pictures of Pacquiao vs. Cotto.

The pictures were about Cotto's face, not Manny Pacquiao.

I don't know what your on, but a picture of Pacman and Marquez together doesn't belong here.

It did appear to me that he eased up. For what reason, I have no idea.

I honestly believe Floyd held back for one reason or another. That a decision was made in an instant that went contrary to his natural instinct.
I was being serious... I was giving you credit. You have your own radio show and you study boxing!

When I watched the fight live I thought Cotto was close to being stopped. However when I watched the replay last night I thought Cotto recovered quickly and wasn't in serious trouble!

I was laughing hard when Floyd keep hitting Cotto with that looping right hand and Cotto was still standing and keep coming. Feather fisted Floyd.

Fans of this sport invent shit like no other... Floyd KNEW Cotto was NOT hurt and was in a defense mode KNOWING that Cotto wanted some get back after that punch.

Only a retard would think Floyd would not want to make a BIG statement to Manny Pacquaio by knocking Cotto the **** out... HE COULD NOT.


THE END.


JIm Lampley "Many here could have this fight EVEN at this point" Round 8. So let's stop pretending this fight was 117-111....


This shit was much closer than many are admitting.

Its kind of funny. How aggressive Mayweather was with Cotto the whole fight throwing combos, trading punches, retaliating after taking hits himself. Throw hard long punches at the end of rds. Yet he finally has Cotto clearly stunned and he doesn't jump on him. He went through all that only to pull back when finally getting him hurt.

He didn't carry him, he just didn't *attempt* to see if he could finish him.

No, Cotto has shown even when badly stunned he can deliver a tide changing blow, Cotto was still swinging and Floyd was looking for another opportunity. Of course the bandwagoners will say the contrary.
