Mayweather Wins & Gets Ready For Jail At The Same Damn Time...

Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber, 50 Cent, and HHH and it wasn't even Wrestlemania; just the circus that's now known as the Money Team…

Let's get this straight right here and right now I'm no fan of Floyd Mayweather but I am a fan of the sweet science and for that reason I'll admit that Mayweather is the ultimate technician and he proved it again Saturday night as he used his speed and accuracy to win by unanimous decision Saturday night versus Miguel Cotto in one of Money's toughest fights ever.

I've said all along that the attribute in Mayweather's skill set that will leave him first is his speed and Saturday he didn't look as fast as he usually does and I guess you can credit that to Miguel Cotto punishing Junior in ways we've never seen.

Who remembers the last time Mayweather left a fight bloody?

Exactly!!! I can't remember the last time either…

However it was Mayweather that dominated the fight late, blasting Cotto in the 12th round to pull out a win and remain a perfect 43-and-0.

Mayweather won Cotto's 154-pound title in the fight, which two judges scored 117-111 and the third 118-110. The decision was roundly booed by the crowd at the MGM Grand arena, which cheered wildly every time Cotto landed a punch.

Floyd Mayweather, Jr. reports to prison June 1st to serve a 90 day sentence.
