TBF vintage Floyd would never miss 2 punches in a row much less 5. This version is visibly slower.

Nope, he fought a fighter that had skills and was his own size where he couldn't over power him, that was the real truth.

Good shit. Cotto showing his slickness.

There's some good moments in his fight with Pacquiao as well.

All the rounds I try to give Floyd, I simply can't because he didn't land enough scoring blows in those rounds, where Cotto landed around the same percentage but he was outworking him in the exchanges and not getting credit for the punches he did land.
No. He barely landed anything really significant (mayweathers defense was really good), but his Jab was effective. But to Cotto's credit Mayweather wasnt connecting like he usually did, due to Cotto's def and his insistence on wearing 10 oz glvs which helped his defense a great deal. But when Mayweather DID land, they were clear, hard, and clean punches that moved Cottos whole head. Mayweather made excellent adjustments, and you are not giving him credit for this. Mayweather isn't getting credit by you for all the very CLEAN body punches he landed to cottos ribs, which did damage. All because a person isnt as heavy handed as his opponents, the punch doesnt have to make a "boom" sound to be effective. The result of Mayweathers body work had cotto pissing blood after the fight some. But I will say

Yes he was slower, but it could just be the fact that he was fighting at 154... but when I look at the Ortiz fight, which he looked really rusty, he was much slower than he was prior at 147.

Such a good moment. Floyd walks off in annoyance, and Cotto watches him leave then struts away as if he's on holiday.

Watch the Oscar fight . DLH was making Floyd miss widely at times, and picking off most of his shots too.


Thing about Floyd is his offense is pretty predictable. He throws single shots and never anymore then 2 punches at a time, and it's almost always a left hook or a straight right / overhand right. His speed and timing negate that a little bit though, but like I said even guys like Oscar, Castillo and Cotto were picking off most of his shots and they arent known for having good defenses at all.

Yep the holiday where you have a great time, sip margaritas on the beach, get on the plane and plane nose dives into the tarmac of the airport.

Floyd landed 38% of his power punches. His average was down like Ortiz because of the flicker jab hes been using to stage his attacks now. Cottos train wreck of a face even with 10 oz gloves shows Floyd devastating attack in this fight.

You remain a moron.

A light welt under the left eye and a bloody nose that was stopped in the 10th. Wow.

Show Pacquiao with the ww2 head wrap looool.


Oh and compare that to Cotto who looked like luis Resto beat him.
