Mayweather Vs. Cotto Results Live - Round 1

The HBO pay-per-view main event fight between Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto kicked off with an opening round that saw Cotto looking to come out and take the center of the ring while Floyd, calm as ever, looked to pop out his quick punches and stay on the outside, controlling the moments of engagement. Floyd's jab was working well early in the round, and he did try to start getting his right hand lead working as well.

Cotto did land occasional punches to the body and head but there was a clear speed differential with Floyd being much more quick. Mayweather's quick punches were likely enough to win the round, but at the end of the round, Cotto landed a nice three punch combination with Floyd against the ropes. Not the mismatch some expected, but still a Mayweather round.

Round: 10-9 Mayweather
