SO i don't know how effective they were, respectfully!
Well I thought Castillo won the first fight but Mayweather adjusted in the second fight obviously.
Cotto lost 8 rounds at least but I think the jab from a right handed stance inside really gave Mayweather problems at times. Now we are talking about one of the best fighters of all time in Mayweather and there are plenty of fighter who try and fight like him that can't pull it off.
That's why styles don't beat fighters, fighters beat fighters if that makes any sense. Of course styles play a big part but there isn't this set of rules as to what style beats what even though a lot of fans think that.
