Canelo Alvarez Beats Shane Mosley

Canelo Alvarez Beats Shane Mosley On Points

What a great, all action fight! Shane Mosley puts on a spectacular performance and pushes Canelo to the limits of exhaustion. The fight went to the score cards where Canelo won a wide decision. But the cards were not very accurate, the fight was much closer. Canelo was cut by an accidental headbutt early in the fight and this no doubt affected his fight plan and made him uncomfortable going into the second half of the fight. Credit to both fighters because the fight was mostly toe to toe action from the first bell to the last.

Many people are saying that Canelo is a fraud because he couldn't stop an old Shane Mosley. However, styles make fights, and their styles gelled extremely well. This had a lot to do with this fight being so close. Shane Mosley really came to fight tonight. Full credit to him. He surprised a lot of people tonight by keeping up with a very young, in his prime fighter. Canelo landed some great power punches that did stun Mosley, but Mosley for most of the exchanges just kept moving forward. Great Fight.

Mayweather Beats Cotto

Oh, and surprise surprise. Floyd Mayweather beats Miguel Cotto on points. Cotto put on a super brave performance, and a great effort overall. He did catch Mayweather with some decent punches at times, and when Cotto closed the distance and worked in close along the ropes he did have some good success. Cotto surprised a lot of people. He really came to fight. Mayweathers nose was bleeding through out most of the fight and he did look more marked up then usual at the end of the fight. However, all in all, Floyd Mayweather did put on a great boxing performance. He was on another level, to sharp, too slick, too clever, and also very impressive defensively. Very good fight. And much closer then most people thought it would be. Great counter punching by Mayweather. But just like the Canelo Mosley fight, the score cards should have been much closer for this fight. Probably the toughest fight of Floyds boxing career so far.
