Floyd Mayweather came out with a good right hand early in the ninth round of his fight with Miguel Cotto, knowing he couldn't allow a repeat of the eight round that saw Cotto do great work.
Mayweather went back to hard right hands and uppercuts while Cotto wasn't really able to get the room to work for the first half of the round before he landed a big left hand. Mayweather eventually allowed himself to get trapped against the ropes. Cotto with a big left hand against the ropes and Mayweather with a hard shot of his own before having return shots by Cotto fired back.
The two men are going blow for blow this fight and it's making for a hell of an action fight that is testing Floyd in ways he's never been as a professional. Right hand lands by Floyd and he misses a few at the end of the round.
Good round for Floyd.
Round: 10-9 Mayweather
