All I've learned from the Mayweather fight is that there is a huge difference between the Cotto, from between the two Margarito fights, and the current post-revenge Cotto. I'd like to see more of him, maybe a fight with Canelo?

Floyd earned back my respect. Both of them put on a great fight and Floyd finally fought a great fighter that wasn't past it or low risk/high reward.

Hopefully he fights Pac next.

I think he's more or less in the same position he was before the Floyd fight got signed, and I think there are a slew of interesting options out there for Miguel at 154.
just curios: what was your prediction?

Good post...I think they split the event. I would like to see Cotto vs Alvarez.

Floyd by late stoppage. TKO10 was my pick on the latest edition of "On the Ropes".

This was not the first time I was wrong on a fight prediction, and surely it will not be the last.

You would've been right had Cotto not protested against the use of the 8oz gloves.

I think Cotto earned some more big fights BUT Mayweathers next fight is going to be that much bigger because the fans really enjoyed this fight. He won the event.

Not in the 10th.

Mayweather would have been having to eat the shots with 8oz too

Them Jabs might have dropped him once or twice

Miguel was incredibly good, this version of Miguel Cotto would have beaten anybody at 154 and 147 last Saturday night. Whose last name is not Mayweather.

Floyd was amazing as usual, more on him in the next paragraphs. What I loved most about this fight. Wasn't The incredible Heart, Skill, Endurance, Athleticism, Fitness and Guile that both warriors displayed. Nor was it the elite level of boxing, in which the fight ensued. We can all agree, that it was fun to watch. We also know that something really good and kinda special happened on Saturday night.

As the years go by we might look back and say. Who was the only dude that really tested Floyd Mayweather ... Miguel Cotto. The more Mayweather dominates, which I believe he will continue to do. The better Miguel will look. He showed every one that was calling him shot, that he still has a lot left in the tank, bitches!! He fought like a beast and put hands on Floyd and although he lost, his stock has risen.

Mayweather is a bad man. He did his thing boy, don't think Money did not dig deep son. He was awesome in so many ways, he got hit,busted up, rough up. Not all work, is easy work son, believe that. It was like Duran vs. Leonad I, but Leonard won this time. He was a little smarter and more seasoned. Than Sugar Ray Leonard was at the time of his fight with Roberto. Duran was also coming up 2 weight classes by today's classifications.

Think about it we paid $70 bucks to see them fight and nobody is complaining. We are as happy as pigs in shit. After the fight was over, we were left with mad boxing possibilities and scenarios, to talk about.

The most important thing about this fight to me, though. Was that it was a throw back outcome. What I mean is that, even though Miguel lost on paper, he won over the boxing world, once again, Floyd fans included. We are not calling him shot or washed up. Great night of boxing! Everybody has been mad respectful before, during and after the fight. Miguel should have done the interview. It's not that he thinks that he was cheated. It't was more like the realization that he did all I could to win and he still lost .....wow Floyd is that good.

I am sure he will apologize and explain himself with time.

That's a Wrap!!!!!
what a moronic thread

Dude, take those PR blinders off for a second and think. Cotto was able to block more shots because of the larger gloves with extra padding, that's the very reason he gave for wanting them.

Those looping rights Mayweather was hitting him with early in the fight would've done serious damage. Mayweather would've been faster as well.
