LAS VEGAS -- Floyd Mayweather Jr. finally found himself in a real fight, complete with a bloody nose and an opponent in Miguel Cotto who never was going to quit.
As usual, he found a way to win.
Mayweather used his speed and accuracy Saturday night to take a unanimous decision over a game Cotto in a bruising bout to win a piece of the 154-pound title. But it wasn't easy, as Cotto landed some hard punches and kept attacking all the way to the final bell.
"You're a hell of a champion," Mayweather told Cotto in the ring afterward. "You're the toughest guy I ever fought."
Mayweather dominated late, rocking Cotto in the 12th round to pull out a win and remain unbeaten in 43 fights. Unlike most of his fights, though, Mayweather got his nose bloodied and engaged in some bruising exchanges he usually likes to avoid.

Two judges scored the fight 117-111 and the third had it 118-110. ESPN.com had it 116-112 for Mayweather. The Associated Press had Mayweather winning 116-112.

What I found interesting in the reports of this fight, is that media like the fight because Mayweather finally got his nose bloodied, seriously. Sports like boxing are centuries old slavery traditions being turned into sports. Back then in slavery times they would face Negroes against each other in bloody fights for the amusement of their slave masters for free, today however they charged their slave masters big money to do it, still the majority people in the stadium watching are the so called white people. It's a wicked custom that I wish our people would stop partaking in.
