For the round-per-round results, observers notably scored the first rounds of the fight as very close, with Mayweather having seen with a bloody nose in Round 4 and had his face with blood starting Round 6, but the undefeated champion went back in the latter rounds particularly in Round 12.

On his last fight in September 2011, Mayweather also won against Victor Ortiz in a controversial fight after knocking down the latter in Round 4 with a strong right hand who was caught unaware of that moment.

On the other hand, Miguel Cotto, who also lost from Manny Pacquiao in November 2009, won over challenger Antonio Margarito via TKO in Round 9 last December 3, their second match.
