I though when Cotto gave him hell in the 8th, that Mayweather start to bounce away and potshot Cotto the rest of the night to avoid damage. He came right back at Cotto and rocked him in the 12th. I'm not a huge Money Man fan now, but I respect him and would root him to beat most fighters now.
What about Pacquiao? He TKO'd Cotto, something Mayweather couldn't accomplish going up against damaged goods.
