In the third round of the HBO pay-per-view main event fight between Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto, it began to shape up to be a good bout. Cotto was able to get off a jab early and keep trying to defend the head and work to the body. Mayweather was able to return a counter right hand off the Cotto body work though. Cotto did a good job of trapping Floyd against the ropes again this round.
Cotto had a good moment of taking a right to the body and then going right upstairs with it and a hard jab as well. Another hard jab by Cotto was met with a right hand by Floyd. The jab continued working as the round went on for Cotto and he did mix in a right hand also.
This was the first round I saw as a Cotto round.
Round: 10-9 Cotto
Fight: 29-28 Mayweather
