    Nice find...

    one of the most underrated punches in Chino's arsenal is his jab...

    he also caught Mayweather with a few flush jabs.

    Mayweather gets hit so rare that, it takes viewers aback when it occurs.

    "Holy shit, Mayweather just got hit!"

    I was surprised to see Maidana land flush uppercuts and overhand rights. His jab looked good and his work to the body was never ending. He definitely had a good strategy going in.

    Yeah, his body work was great...and when they were both within striking range he kept up the tempo by throwing that jab...

    He had a great game plan...and how could you not love that Bite he landed in the
    12th round? Maidana is my new 2nd favorite fighter.

    That bite wobbled Floyd.

    Am I the only one confused as to why Floyd went down there? I can't see a punch landing let alone a clean shot before the KD.

    Injured his hand maybe? Looks like he connects a hook and then says "owwww". And shakes his hand a little after.

    You're right. He's punched him in the elbow with the left. Gone down with the left hook directly after it.

    He did have an injured paw in the Carlos Herandez fight.

    the one i remember was like cotto i think was circling and threw punch where it was almost out of frustration but it actually caught mayweather. Money had seen it coming,tried to move out of the way but still ate the end of that punch. Its like it took everything cotto had to land a glancing fuckin blow on the guy.

    Floyd admitted to be shocked that Maidana actually had a good jab.

    Maidana hooking up with Robert Garcia was one of the best career choices he could have made...

    watch his fights before and after his fight with Devon Alexander.

    Maidana has a great jab...and he complements it by mixing it up with his brawling tactics.

    Castillo was very good in the middle rounds in their first fight. I recall Corley rocked Floyd in one round, but then Floyd came back and whooped him for the rest of the round. Round 2 vs Mosley would be an obvious candidate. Cotto had one or two quite successful rounds. Maidana had a few, as well.

    Cotto jab? Maidana landed equally as well. At one point he landed 4 straight. Rd 5 vs Maidana imo. Haven't seen the Castillo fight enough to know. Never cared to watch through and score it.

    The first is actually a pretty decent fight. Even the second is quality boxing.

    A lot of people did. Most people whose opinions I respect tend to see it as a very close fight that could have gone either way. I can see it narrowly to Floyd or Castillo, though, I tend to score it very narrowly to Floyd, but it truly was close enough to go either way. The rematch was fairly close again, but Floyd clearly took it.

    It was close and could have gone either way. Floyd won a lot of early rounds. Most people see a "robbery" there because Castillo finished strong.
