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!!!!!
i agree with most of this post.

the part i don't agree with...i think cotto has exposed some kinks in floyds armor. he has given a blue print on how to beat floyd. problem was...cotto didn't have the stamina nor the patience/intelligence to get it done. if he would have stuck to the body work...he would have had a much easier floyd to deal with in the final rounds. both fighters made adjustment after adjustment after adjustment. i take nothing away from either. they will both go down as two of the best of this era. great fight for boxing fans.

Based on.... not getting KO'd? super. Mayweather took Cotto's own strategy and began to beat his ass with it.

protested? the rules stipulate 10oz for anything above 147.

The commission would've agreed to it but Cotto(e)'s team didn't want them.

I really think this is a case where both fighters "won" the event. . . Cotto's stock goes up slightly in the loss. . Mayweather proved he was still Mayweather. . .

Cotto could step right back in against any big name (probably even a Pac rematch @ 150-154) based off the common perception of his performance (which was good, but he wans't close to winning like some mainstream fans might think). . But still, just because he did that good against FLoyd, his stock goes up.

I believe Castillo gets credit for the blue print

Cotto kinda perfected it, but not really Floyd won

Sick!

When the crowd who bought tickets to see you boos you, because you are such an asshole that you want to leave the ring without talking to them, I would say you lost the event.

Floyd won it, when he gave fans an exciting fight and dug deep with all his injuries and sickness to dominate Cotto in a spirited fight.

Mayweather won by a wide margin on the cards. That is not Cotto winning the event. Cotto is not a young fighter who didn't have a title who was biting off more than he can chew. He had a title and he lost it in a rather wide decision. The fight was tougher than the cards showed,but Cotto did not win the event. Mayweather won the fight and won the event. Abril is more of a guy who won the event againts Rios.

I thought both fighters showed a lot in that fight. Floyd didn't run for many years now and fought in the pocket as he promised.
