    If he didnt grab Shane's arm he would have been knocked down. I forgot what round it was, but didnt Cotto hit him and cause him to splatter blood on the front row?

    I actually thought Castillo's strongest rounds came in the middle of the fight (rounds 6, 7 and 9 if I remember correctly). The last 3 rounds were very, very close.

    Ive watched that fight 4-5 times and the best I have is a draw. It was a really good fight.

    Yeah, I had it close...I think ended up leaning Castillo. But whatever controversy there was as to who the better fighter was, was erased in the rematch. PBF clearly won.

    Are you talking about that weird like left hook that Cotto through that connect with Floyd in the middle of the fight?
    I remember that punch

    I couldn't see a clear Castillo win no matter how many times I've seen that fight. I count it a draw every time.

    Didnt the OP ask for a full ROUND and not just a couple times Floyd's been rocked? Corley, Shane, Zab, never dominated a full round. I'd have to say Cotto won a round most handily against Floyd.

    Floyd in a interview said Emanuel Augustus and Cotto were his toughest fights. I haven't seen the Augutus fight was Floyd rocked by him?

    To be fair, Augustus' style makes him a tough fight for anyone regardless haha.

    That was on a shortlived program on HBO called KO Nation. Floyd came out looking to knock out Augustus and it turned into one of the few dogfights of his career.

    Emanuel Augustus-Burton, probably the most robbed fighter in the history of the sport. His fights with Ward were legendary. Still to this day go out of my way to watch past/recent fights of his. As someone else mentioned he was a tough fight for ANYONE but tended to fight down to his competition at times.
