Because they're poor and were forced to watch some shitty ass stream?

And/or have no understanding on how to score a boxing match.

Bar a few sloppy rounds in the middle Floyd was in control.
People just get excited when they see Floyd get hit and Cotto do better than expected.
Mayweather vs Pacquiao and Alvarez vs Cotto would be nice fights at the end of the year.
This version of Cotto will embarrass Canelo.

This fight looked like the De La Hoya and Castillo fight mixed.
You are confusing clean shots with blocked shots there is your problem...
Sure if you ignore the blocking part yeah the fight was not close at all

I think that's the key. Heaps of people are looking at Cotto's work rate and are saying ohh look how close he made it, but the fact is most of those punches weren't scoring shots. Yeah, Floyd got a blood nose, Cotto clipped him a few times.

The fight seemed close, because there were some good solid rounds between the two.

Some close but clear rounds to Floyd made the fight seem closer than it was.

But fights are scored on a round by round basis. And Mayweather did exactly that, won more rounds.

I have 500 post cause I have a damn job(Unix/Linux Engineer, do you know what that is?), 2 daughters, one I am putting through college, a wife and a brand new damn house. It seems with 4000 thousand post in less than a yr you don't have no woman, like men who sweat all over their body, and post about it. I don't be on here a lot and post when I can so no need to go there. You have probably watched the replay several times already crying like Ms. Jackson when Floyd was about to puke in the corner in the last rd.

Because we're talking about Mayweather here.

What rounds did Cotto win definitively? IMO, none.

Give him a few based on Mayweather taking a few rounds off and Cotto pressing the action.

Still a 118-110 type decision.

Easy work.

Cotto won a couple of rounds maybe.
My score was 115-113 Mayweather. And it could had benn a draw.
I knew it was imposible for Cotto to win a decision to Mayweather, although he win. I'm not saying he won but was close to that. I want to see a remath.
As a matter of fact, Cotto Mayweather is the fight with least difference of landed punches between the two fighters in May career.
