Default I am humbled to say I was wrong about Mayweather vs Cotto.

I said, "I doubt Cotto will win a single round". I was wrong, he won 2.

LMAO! I wish the world was this cut and dry most give him 3 you could argue 4 and it was clear Cotto was pretty much outclassed but the fight in itself, the action and the chess play that evolved was intresting to watch. It was competitive and the man with the more impressive pedigree came out on top. I'm sure you would agree...the rounds the Floyd won where not white washes they where earned with blood, sweat but no tears just devilish Floyd smiles. Money well spent.

I think the only rounds Cotto clearly won were the rounds Mayweather took off. Your right though it was a good bout. Cotto was just out classed by a boxing master. There is a reason Floyd is pound for pound in most boxing experts opinion. If only he was not such an annoying prick.

I gave Cotto 2 rounds that I thought he clearly won but there were 3 more rounds that I would not have argued with if someone were to score them for Cotto.

Understood, annoying he is and on the same note one hell of a marketable personality. His business savvy has increased considerably.

I thought Cotto would give Floyd a though fight but get knocked out.

He is rich and is only going to get richer. Promotions is his game and he is now also a promoter. I know people who know Floyd well and they all say that the man is a very savy business man. They all so say that his "annoying prick" gig is just an act. All I can say is, he is a good actor.

To win a round, one need only land a few more punches...Cotto fought his heart out and to this was the first fight in which I was still smiling even though my dude lost.

Floyd's connect % was not as impressive and I give credit to Cotto's defense as well as his jab, and body punches. That jab made Floyd look special in a few instances. Bap! Bap! BAP !

Gave Cotto 3 rounds...maybe even 4, but none the less, he put on one hell of a performance...was very impressed with Miguel this past saturday.
