On Cinco De Mayo 2012, HBO gave viewers a great fight between Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather Jr. To the average mainstream boxing fan this was the first bout that Mayweather seemed to struggle.

Perhaps the most controversial fight in Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s undefeated career was his first bout with Jose Luis Castillo on April 20, 2002. At the time Mayweather jr. was transitioning to a higher weight class at 135 lbs sporting a 27-0 record.

Castillo was already established at 135 lbs weight class with a 45-4-1, 41 KO record while holding the WBC’s title.

Was Jose Luis Castillo robbed a victory? Was this very fight a gift from the judges?

Watch for yourself.
