I was pretty nervous coming up to the decision. It was a close fight, although I had Cotto up also. Cotto even when defensive at times was still countering well and landing effective punches. Cotto has extremely under rated boxing ability, and it won him the fight tonight.

I was very very impressed with Shane in this fight. The speed and power behind his jab, the angles he was working, his combinations the whole lot was unreal. That was the same Mosley I watched beat Oscar in the first fight, and not the same fighter we saw in the first Vargas fight.

Will be interested to see if a Mayweather v Cotto fight ever eventuates. It would play out very very differently to the fight we saw tonight. Cotto would need to be throwing in much greater numbers to the body, and outwork Mayweather to get the win.
You underestimated how good Shane is??

I had the fight as a draw.

I could see from round 4 onwards that Shane was gonna slow down. He aint the young boy he thought he could be, not with that pressure being applied.

Shane has always been hittable and tonight was no different, no way no how would Cotto land that stuff on PBF. He gotta make it reaaaal rough and tough just like Hatton has to.

You're still a Cotto ball licker

Hey teke, bort asked me to ask you something (his comp is ****ed, probably too much scat porn)...

He wants to know if Mosley will still go down as an ATG, or a HOF'er even though he was a drug cheat. He feels theres a bit of double standards seeing as how drugs has cost Andrew Johns being the next league immortal.

Steroid cheat, it's been through the legal channel and he came out not giulty - enough said

Old man Mosley still gave this up and comer a tough fight, it was a draw in my eyes and nobody will convince me otherwise

The good thing to come out of this fight was Mosley hurt Cotto a number of times

Cotto at 36 will be a withered old Gatti slurring words

Some people think Cotto won by 4 rounds aswell which is just as ridiculous, this fight was inconclusive, Shane was just average throughout, Cotto was great in the first half and poor in the second half. Hope they fight again.
