Mayweather Vs. Cotto Result: Floyd Mayweather Takes Hard Fought Decision Win

Miguel Cotto came out and put on a hell of a show in his HBO pay-per-view bout with Floyd Mayweather, being the first man to really test Floyd for any sustained amount of time since Mayweather fought Jose Luis Castillo twice in 2002.

Cotto was able to trap Floyd against the ropes much of the fight and dig to the body, and eventually that opened up hard shots to the head that did draw blood from the nose of "Money." But in the end, it was Mayweather's ability to get his hard right hands, uppercuts and jabs in with enough regularity to take most of the fight.

Mayweather took the fight on official scores of 117-111, 118-110 and 117-111. The crowd disagreed, having been caught up in the underdog putting forth a tremendous effort, but we had the fight scored 116-112 here at SB Nation, so it's hardly an indefensible score.

We'll have some deep insight on the fight in the coming day, including an in-depth look at the action.
