Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather went to war in a great HBO pay-per-view main event that saw Mayweather get a deserved, but very hard fought, victory. Cotto was able to punish the body and land enough punches to Floyd's face to actually draw blood from a man who almost never gets hit clean.
For Cotto, it was a fight that proved that he is truly an elite fighter, capable of hanging with any man in the world. While Floyd was forced to fight an entertaining, crowd pleasing fight and couldn't coast to an easy decision victory. It was a fight that may be deserving of a rematch as a mega-fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao seems unlikely and Oscar De La Hoya says that Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, who trounced Shane Mosley on the undercard, isn't quite ready to step up to Floyd.
Here are the video highlights of the bout:
