Ricardo Lopez is ridiculously overrated and the greatest thing about him was ability to always be equally concentrated and focused for every C level opponent he was fighting.

Everyone is so used to him hardly getting hit at all that what would be a dominant, easy fight for someone else (ie Trout) becomes a life and death fight for Mayweather because Cotto landed some jabs that bloodied his nose. It's incredible.

But a Cotto win by two points......That's not unpopular. That's just plain absurd. There isn't any way possible that he got remotely close to winning 7 rounds.

Which 7 rounds did you give Cotto?

You have to put that one up.
You have guys like Raskat that not only think Cotto won but think it was a robbery The guy was literally in shock that he was the only one who thought it was a robbery.

I apparently only think it wasn't a robbery because I'm American (I'm not American)

The Mayweather-Cotto fight wasn't close at all.

I think Trout did beat Cotto more clearly but nevertheless I think Floyd won pretty clearly as well. 8-4 is the fairest scorecard in my opinion, and I think if you're being generous you maybe could make an argument for 7-5. But that is being generous to Cotto because he faded badly after the big effort he made in the 8th round.

Really interesting to see how different the two fighters were physically after the 8th. Cotto was physically spent, and Floyd suddenly looked like a new man. While Floyd is a model of energy conservation in the ring, the contrast from that point onwards is still pretty startling. It was downhill for Cotto after that and there was just no way he was going to win the fight.

I thought it was a great fight though, and it was the fight I rewatched the most last year. Not since Castillo has anyway been anywhere near as effective as Cotto was against Mayweather. And yet, it was fascinating to see how Floyd still came out on top despite Cotto doing so much right. A fight that enhanced both guys in my opinion.

Casual fans don't even know who he is, and he's overrated?

He's criminally underrated and would give Jimmy Wilde a run for his money.
