Yes..it seems that Cotton would have taken the crown proper from Torres, had he not, in the words of a boxing scribe at the time.."did nothing in the last round in an almost regal way", apparently, Eddie thought he had it in the bag, and needed to take no chances in the last round...it was close, and Cotton, IMO, deserved it, even after doing nothing in the 15th round.

Pastano won if it was a line-dancing match.

Marquez in his second fight with Pac. Some people would also include his first fight with pac but I felt Pac won that fight or it was a draw.

I dont know hwy that fight gets so derided good fight to watch and Pastrano boxed very well behind his jab with good movement.

I dont think he would have won if it was line dancing as he used too many angles
