How much does Garcia weigh on fight night? Broner must be 147-150-odd.

Just watched Cotto-Mayweather for the first time...

116-112 Mayweather

Mayweather: 1, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12
Cotto: 2, 3, 6, 8

Great, great fight. Mayweather won the first with his jab but I felt Cotto took rounds 2 and 3 with his own jab and the fact that he was blocking and parrying many of Floyd's punches. The next two rounds Floyd took with that looping right hand but Cotto was still applying intelligent pressure and his left hook was landing. Cotto took the 6th with a brilliant and consistent jab but wasted a ton of movement for no reason. Floyd nailed the 7th by planting his feet and comitting to his punches. The 8th was a big round for Cotto; he had very good work inside, occasionally tagging Floyd's chin, and improvising his left hook when needed. He drilled the body and landed some great punchers. Floyd swept the last four though with his usual adjustments. Cotto was pumping the jab in the 9th but Floyd took it by starting that left uppercut from the inside and outside; he was awesome at tying up cotto but throwing short punches inside (only ward does this better). The 10th and 11th were quiet but Floyd won simply by landing the cleaner, more accurate punches. Cotto still made him work but he was clearly losing rounds now. The 12th was a big, big Floyd round. Cotto trying to bully until Floyd landed combo, after combo and of course, that big left uppercut.

Overall, a clear Floyd win but his hardest fight in years and possibly Cotto's best fight in years considering the opponent.

He is a great amateur fighter.

Talk of him beating Broner, Gamboa, etc is slightly premature, to put it mildly.

Won't be far off though, insane talent.

I could see Robeisy Ramirez doing damage to flyweight pretty quickly if he wasn't Cuban.

Virgil Hill KO4 Leslie Stewart.

Quicksilver was already considered to be much more of a boxer than a puncher at this point and Stewart had borne up pretty well in splitting two fights with the hard punching Marvin Johnson. It stood to reason that Virgil would circle and jab, and that Stewart would try to track him down; and everything went according to plan over the first three. Hill jabbed and jabbed some more and took the first and third as a result. I thought Stewart did enough work in the second to shade it in my card, but even then, he didn't look particularly comfortable in there and appeared awfully frustrated by the start of the fourth.

Still, I remember it came as a massive shock when Hill drew Stewart into a check hook from the ninth layer of Hell, producing one of my very favorite delayed reaction knockdowns of all time. And Hill certainly closed the show in style,(he was a pretty good finisher when he had someone hurt) landing another hook that had Stewart flopping onto the canvas for a second and final time.

One of the better finishes of the 80's, imo.

Oddly without looking at this thread this morning I saw Cotto-Mayweather too. Had it 8-4 May way. Floyd looked arguably the worse I've seen him. Both guys were missing but lot of those chopping rights were blocked. I give Cotto his due he made him fight and that jab always would've given Mayweather problems with a disciplined strategy. Both guys did well picking their shots but Mayweather didn't look great at all. Great performance by Cotto and great heart shown by May. He was bloodied which hasnt happened since Augustus I think.

Myung Woo Yuh vs Joey Olivo I had it 8-7 for Olivo. I gave Olivo the 15th to pull it out after a late rally by Yuh. I really enjoyed this fight. I never recall seeing two fighters race around the ring at such speed (Olivo going backward, Yuh forward). But there was plenty of action and exchanges. I think Olivo was a little more accurate.

I didn't think too much of his punching technique or his offensive ****nal either, whereas Barrera and Morales were excellent in both respects.

It left me wondering how he could have beaten a fighter of Wilfredo Gomez's calibre, certainly. Boxing is a funny old game.

Aye it wasn't one of his more inspiring performances i'll give you that, but c'mon with some of the ****e Marco, Juan manuel and Erik have given us in lower key fights or when they thought they were fighting a lesser talent, you should be able to cut him some slack.

That's the first Sanchez fight you've watched? Watch his fight with Danny Lopez (first one). Takes a big, steaming dump on any performance by any of the modern Mexican trio.

I recommend him against Castillo. Then you get to see positives and negatives.
