cotto won 5 rounds in that fight,tim maybe won 4 max.the rounds cotto won he clearly won ,the rounds bradley won he just inched out.mayweather was bleeding and showed damage pac did not.mayweather layed in the corner and got outworked but yet compubox showed floyd as more active?tim runs away the last 4 rds to avoid ko and judges call it a boxing lesson?im started to feal like when i was 10 years old and i finally realized that wwf wrestling was fake and the outcomes were predetermined.boxing is bullshit.

Coasting? Pacquiao was getting outboxed the last 3 rounds he wasnt coasting shit. Bradleys jab was in his ****ing face. He was "coasting" like he coasted against Marquez and Mosley meaning he doesnt have any ****ing idea how to cut the ring off or fight someone with movement.

Mayweather who had Cotto ****ed up bleeding out his ass and wobbling around the ring coasted.

If you're going to use the face argument, Pacquaio ****ed Cotto up way harder than Mayweather.

He landed the same shot he landed on Cotto on Bradley.

Bradley just doesn't bruise or cut easily. That's stupid logic to go by.

Neither fight was competitive.

And throwing a flicker jab on some gloves and then getting caught with hard counters doesn't equal "outboxing." It equals you don't know shit about boxing if you think it does.

Bradley doesnt bruise easily either lol. Because he barely haf a ****ing mark on his face.

Bradley was hitting gloves. And pacquiao was hitting air. Difference was Brradley was throwing and boxing. Pacquiao was just coming forward in straight lines with a stupid look on his face.

Same look he had against Marquez.

Bradley was totally comfortable in that fight. With 2 injuries. Pacquiao looked like shit.

I wouldn't say Bradley looked completely comfortable. At one point I literally thought he might cry as he walked back to his corner with his head down.

I thought Mayweather won more rounds against Cotto than Pacquiao did against Bradely, but I thought the Mayweather fight was more competitive.

I gave Cotto 3 rounds and gave Bradley 4 rounds......buuuuut the rounds Cotto won were more obvious and clearer wins. All in all they're pretty even.......but boxing is scored on a round by round basis not a damage basis. Bradley made more rounds close than Cotto but Cotto won the rounds he won by bigger margins. Mayweathers offense was much more effective than Pacs, Cotto's offense was slightly more effective than Bradleys

There was actually a point in the Floyd vs Cotto fight where I said "Holy shit, Cotto might win this" ...but I NEVER came close to that in the Pac vs Bradley fight... it was the prime example of an ELITE fighter vs a good one

When is the last time you've seen Mayweather bullied on the ropes with a broken nose?

There's your answer.

Manny was a little more competitive then Cotto on the scorecards but he didn't fight as hard.

Anyone who says Bradley is a hater or like sixteen living in his mom's basement. Bradley gave a good effort and was simply outclassed. Cotto had a good, gritty fight where Floyd had to work to win, which he obviously did. Manny was business as usual and shut Bradley out.

Then you dont know how to score a fight. Cotto won 2 (3 at most) rounds the entire fight, in a competitive great fight. That fight was not in question at all going into the 10th. smh.

I had Cotto winning four rounds, which is in the normal range of most observers.

After 9 rounds, I had Floyd up 5-4, but he swept last three.

Giving Cotto only two rounds shows either bias or incompetence.
