good fights from everyone involved last night. Cotto proved he still has something left, and Mosley managed to hear the applause of the fans once more by displaying the heart of an old warrior

118-110 for Mayweather

Cotto kills Saul Alvarez. Puerto Rico vs Mexico once again

I actually didn't think PBF looked as sharp as he usually does. Staye on the ropes too much. He won the fight but I expected more. May have been a reflection on Cotto...

yep

Floyd was a bit sloppy. Guys with a good guard to block shots always manage to make Floyd's ranged offense look less impressive than usual. This happened in both the Oscar and Cotto fights. Floyd doesn't really throw the kind of combos to open up their guard.

118-110 is wide. cotto definitely won rounds 6 & 8 and i would give maybe 2 close rounds to cotto. mayweather was definitely not as accurate as he usually is, but he threw a lot more combinations than we've seen in a while and stood his ground. the left uppercut and right hook worked beautifully for him. floyd could have made it an easy fight, but i commend the fact that he gave the fans an exciting fight

Bradley like the majority of pacquiao opponents isn't coming off an impressive win in his most recent outing, but Bradley-pacquiao should be a good fight.
Tim will do better than expected, and people sleeping on this fight are missing out. One of manny's better opponent selections in recent years.
manny's limitations has been permanently highlighted recently. Bradley's hunger, determination, and decent Ring IQ will give manny trouble.
I told you guys

I just said that he got a GIFT in his last fight.....
post #223 of 385
where in that fight did you think Bradley had the upper hand. *casual fan - you know a lot more than me*
post #224 of 385
Manny lost. His focus isn't where it should be...

He is probably still the best talk show host/singer/politician/movie star/boxer in the Phillipines....

He won 4 rounds for sure. I gave him the 1st, and he swept the final 3.

Those last rounds are usually the most important to judges. Juan-manny 3, where Juan was robbed, iirc Juan did not win the final 2 rounds.

I'll have to rewatch the fight to come up with an accurate score. As you all know I'm not a pacquiao fan at all. Watching a live fight puts me in a f manny mode, and the quality wasn't great either on a stream.

I remember there being many close rounds. Timmeh's accumulation of bodyshots and ring intelligence took him through the final rounds.
