Wasn't this a chaotic fight, I must say I saw this fight from a slightly different perspective to you, you are a smart scorer and I would love to get your opinion on how Floyd won 9 of those rounds, it is interesting how opinions can differ, I do agree that this was the right decision though, 47-0 is correct in my opinion.

Hey buddy! So, I have a hard time with this fight in general. While it is obvious to me that Castillo seemed to be comfortable and persistent in his aggression, I have never felt that he was affective nor landing clean punches (I am generalizing). I usually like the HBO crew all around, but something seemed off in this fight. For example, round 5 seemed to be pivotal in their minds, and I believe Compubox had Castillo landing 16 to Mayweather's 12. So, I've watched that round specifically multiple times counting punches to see if I was crazy. I most recently counted 20 lands for Floyd and, if I'm being generous, 11 for Castillo. Anyway, I know that's not the end all be all for fights, but I really feel that Floyd just out-boxed him. He "retreated" throughout rounds 6-10 a lot, but was landing wonderful counter punches. I think he beat up Jose in round 10, and I think the closest rounds in the whole fight were the final two. Round 7 was definitive Castillo, but other than that, I have to fight to give him rounds. Now, I understand being in the minority on this one, and I completely respect the opposing view on this one. This is just how I continually view the fight. I saw it like the judges did, oddly enough. lol. Thanks for asking. :) As far as the second fight, I really want to make my highlight video for it and watch it closely. I know I should already have done that by now, but I'm sure you understand a busy schedule. haha. I do what I can. Talk to you soon, my friend.

I have always said that compubox is dodgy. This fight is widely disputed and what is so interesting is that a few may say that the first Pacquiao vs Bradley fight was not a robbery and the rest will say it was, the simple answer is that Pacquiao was robbed and anyone who says different doesn't understand the sport whereas in this case I have seen experts say Castillo was robbed and experts agree with us.

Hey Champ, do you think Castillo gave Mayweather his toughest fight, or was it Cotto?

Hey Christian, I think physically, maybe Cotto, I mean, in that fight, I don't think I've seen a braver performance, overall, I'd say Castillo. What do you think?

Hey Champ!

I say Cotto. Castillo bullied him more than anyone ever had at that point, but Cotto had strength and skill that really pushed Floyd to that next level.
