Pac vs Cotto for me WW is Floyd's domain. Pac looked stronger than ever in a new division.

Saying that Floyd fought perfectly, too perfectly I got bored seeing Mosley befuddled like that.

but it could be said that Floyd has never fought a genuine, full welterweight and the fact that he put him on the back foot for the last 10 rounds edges it for me

Shane was a broken man after his losses. Silly to split hairs like this really. Cotto has a fight schduled against a tough opponent. Let's see how he does.

Both are great wins and performances, which is why we need them to fight each other next.

Cotto was younger, more active and a better boxer than Mosley at the time and also holds a win over him less than 3 years ago, although it seemed he had slipped since the Margarito loss. I would say Mayweather's overall performance was better than Pacquiao's, but not by much as both were pretty much dominant throughout.

Pac over Cotto for me.

Also this question would have been better asked in a couple of months time, as the Mayweather vs Mosley fight right now is in the forefront of everyone's mind

I was more shocked with how Manny Pac took Miguel Cotto's shots, and then beat Miguel Cotto up.

I placed a bet on Miguel Cotto, to knock Manny Pac out in 2 rounds..!

The Floyd Mayweather fight shocked me aswell, i did'nt think it would be as one sided. But in terms of "Shock" value.

Manny Pac vs Cotto......changed allot of opinions that people had in this sport, and its when i suddenly realised.

"He's for real, Pacman is for realllllll at welterweight"

I'd have them both on par to be honest. Like Kos said, it's easy to get carried away here because it was last night but when you look back, both were fantastic wins against fighters who 'at the time' were classed as 'in their peak, natural Welter'

It's easy to discredit both wins with hindsight but both were very good wins
