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.

Its just an exageration which he tends to do. You can't take everything Mayweather says so literal. He has given Cotto plenty of props and even said he was his toughest fight. And fighting defensive, making Cotto miss, but landing clean accurate counters does not help Cotto.

Mayweather does not fight to please the fans. If he did, he would have fought Pacquaio 2 years ago.

He fights to win and take as little punishment as possible.

He tried to keep the fight in the center of the ring, but Cotto used his jab, and his physical strength to push Mayweather back against the ropes.

You can see in Mayweather's face, that he was uncomfortable, regardless of whether the punches were landing cleanly or not.

I also think Mayweather was impressed with Cotto's ability to take his punches, and that may have caused him some alarm.

But in the end, as always, Cotto faded. Cotto started to fade in the 9th round, and it was all downhill from there.

From that point, the fight was over, and the outcome wasn't in question. Mayweather's superior conditioning, combined with his accuracy took over, and that was that.

The same people saying Floyd could have made it easy are the people that said Floyd would WALK COTTO DOWN and KNOCK HIM OUT cuz that's his NEW STYLE.

Anybody who thought that doesn't know shit about boxing.
You don't know shit about boxing you rat fu@k.
