Round two of the HBO pay-per-view main event fight between Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto had Cotto needing to do a little bit better than he had in the opening frame. An interesting moment transpired with Cotto and Mayweather locking up and Cotto lifting him well off the ground before setting him down and patting him on the head.
Mayweather was looking to land looping overhand rights in the round, rather than a continued reliance on the jab/straight right. Cotto was able to keep Floyd against the ropes and actually do good work to the body and head. Floyd returned fire with power shots of his own, making for a better action fight than most Mayweather fights. Cotto had a nice left hand but he needs to focus on the body going forward.
Good round, but still slightly in favor of Mayweather in my eyes.
Round: 10-9 Mayweather
Fight: 20-18 Mayweather
