I actually had it 7-5 for mayweather, with a case being made (because I switched one of my rounds I had for Cotto to mayweather to make sure I wasnt giving cotto any special treatment) as a draw.

The judges, HBO crew, and especially ledermen were close to corrupt in their scores, imo.

Not saying I think Cotto won it, but no matter how you slice it, those scores were corrupt and crimingal (imo)

I have my preferences, but I wouldn't hesitate to call you and countless other posters on this board far more preoccupied with defending Floyd than I am of hyping Cotto or Marquez or anyone else.

It's sickening to me how losers perceive and think alike. Cotto won 2 rounds period. Floyd buckled Cotto al throughout the fight. When people try to make highlight videos of what Cotto did the word that will best describe them will be cheese. Cotto landed some nice jabs and hit Floyd a few times against the ropes. That will occupy maybe a minute of the highlight videos . The rest of the videos will be Cotto not landing anything solid and just throwing flurries. You people are ****ing idiots swayed by your female emotions. The shit people force themselve to believe . 117-112 is being nice in my opinion . Cotto wouldn't do shit till the end of a round and you idiots compare that shit to Castillo. Thats a clear slap in the face to Castillo . I cant wait for the replay . EVeryone is going to have a change of opinion . Calm the **** down off your post fight high cuz youre really going to look dumb later.

If that makes me biased for disagreeing and making it known then I guess I am. But the people that are scoring the fight 115-113, draws, etc., on the board, much less the media, are in the minority.

Plus, I just happen to remember things that certain posters said before the fight and it's mostly just sour grapes on their end cause Cotto lost.

I don't mind being in the minority, and have no problems fervently disagreeing with a majority. You're not "a moron" if you gave Cotto 4 or 5 rounds, in my opinion, and upholding your own score as the epitome of competence just because a majority agrees doesn't make variances from that score any less valid.

And you're a known Floyd hater, so why should I care what you say in regards to bias?

All three judges, the entire HBO crew, the Boxnation crew, COMPUBOX, damn near every ringside observer, and the majority of fans would have to be corrupt in order for your theory to hold water. You have to ask to yourself this; what's more likely, all of those people are corrupt and can't score a fight, or that your scorecard was off and probably influenced by personal bias?

There where so many close rounds its not unconcievable that a few people had Cotto winning. I will have to rewatch the fight before I give my score card as I had drunk half a bottle of Vodka when I orginally watched it. My mate said he thought Cotto won and he normally has decent opinions even though he had Hopkins beating Calzaghe somehow.
