Definitely not a robbery, very close fight, I had it a draw last time I watched it. The time before I think I had JLC winning. Floyd was somewhat unimpressive, JLC was impressive but if you score it on an actual round-by-round basis, it is very close.
What's quite interesting is that JLC definitely had something in his style that caused Floyd problems. In the 2nd fight, Floyd pulled away towards the end but Jose definitely had success in that fight too (though admittedly I haven't see the rematch in a long time so I'm going off memory).
Just shows how underrated Castillo was.

People act like the second fight was some kind of 12-0 beatdown by Mayweather, it wasn't.
He won more convincingly of course the second time around, but, it was still a competitive fight. The mid rounds especially.
The only real difference between the first and second fights were Mayweather closed strongly or stronger.
And you're absolutely right about Castillo being underrated. He's the best Lightweight of his era, bar none. He's the only person who's ever truley come close to beating Mayweather.

I thought that Castillo did enough to win, but I'm not calling it a robbery either. I was at the rematch live and didn't think it was as close as the cards had it.

Not a robbery, but I still think Castillo deserved it. Hell of a fighter.
I thought the rematch played out pretty much exactly like the first fight through 9 rounds, and then Floyd closed it strong.

Interesting observations here. Looking back, it was definiteley close but I still think Mayweather won clearly. He swept the first 4 or 5 rounds and I thought there was only a couple more rounds that I could have scored for Castillo, one of which I scored even, even if I had scored both for him, I would still have had him losing. Simply put, Floyd's punches were just better and that's what makes the difference in a close round. Castillo was the one coming forward but some of his punches were illegal and he was getting hit cleanly. I think it was a situation where, because Mayweather had never been into deep waters before, people got really excited that he got seriously pushed and tested and this made them think that Castillo did better against him than was actually the case.
As for the rematch. I don't think it was close at all. I scored it 117-111 for Mayweather. Having stated that, I could see someone having it closer depending on their personal preferences and if they listened to the commentary or not. One things is for sure though, Mayweather won very clearly.

The fight was very close and could have went either way. If Castillo won I would have been fine with it. I had Mayweather up 6-5-1. I hate scoring even rounds, but the round Mayweather got a point deducted, I had him winning.
