The main event between Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto will be up next and I'll have live round-by-round thoughts on that fight.
Round 1 - Mayweather likely wins the round after using a quick jab and lead right hand. But, Miguel did manage to land a combination against the ropes and wasn't blown out in the round.
Round 2 - Good round with Cotto trapping Floyd against the ropes, but Floyd likely did enough firing back to win the round. It's a good action fight through two rounds though.
Round 3 - The first round I saw for Cotto, although Mayweather still may have won it for the judges. But Cotto did good work against the ropes and landed a nice jab throughout the round.
Round 4 - Very good round for Mayweather as he landed power right hands to Cotto and stopped him from coming forward. Cotto did do a little damage and drew blood from Floyd's nose, but a clear Floyd round.
Round 5 - HBO gave the round to Cotto as he did good work but Mayweather still fought effectively and won the round in my eyes.
Round 6 - Jab from Cotto has blood flowing from Floyd's nose again and he is doing very good work. Floyd is chasing now, but this is a very competitive fight with Floyd actually looking a bit tired.
Round 7 - Floyd takes control again in my eyes with a nice right hand and jab. But Cotto is still there, working hard.
Round 8 - Cotto's best round fo the fight. Great work for Cotto, landing hard shots throughout the round.
Round 9 - Strong Mayweather round but Cotto has his moments as well. I have Floyd up 3 points to this point but it's been a great, great fight.
Round 10 - Good round that I had Cotto stealing on a late flurry to end the round making it a 2 point fight with 2 rounds left.
Round 11 - Good comeback round for Floyd. Cotto fought him well but Mayweather did enough to take the round with his right hand as Cotto faded a bit.
Round 12 - Mayweather hurts Cotto badly in the round but doesn't get the finish.
Official scores: Floyd Mayweather wins by scores of 117-111, 118-110 and 117-111
