Let me be perfectly clear, this is a GOOD FIGHT. I just don't see how it helps posturing for a superfight in the future with any of the marquee players at 154 or 147. Either way, I'll be tuning in.

Cotto IS the marquee name at 154...and I NEVER want to see this dude weigh anything south of it. Canelo better make an impact before Miguel retires, or else, someone will soon take his spot. I like this boss shit from Cotto!

Trout D12... Cotto has trouble with guys who will box him. See the Clottey and Mayweather fights.

Real talk, how the hell is Alvarez not fighting Trout? All the legit guys in his div and Lopez gets the bout?!

Cotto, doing what a champ (well former champ) does, take on the best available opposition. Plus he knows he needs a belt prior to entering any negotiations regarding Alvarez as a means to help remain parity on the purse. All makes sense, who's griping about this fight? Like, where's the rationale there? Only gripe is that its Cotto not Alvarez, but that's a knock on GBP/Canelo, not Cotto or Trout.

Good fight, boxing needs more of it imo...

Agreed.

Alvarez vs Trout made more sense to me but whatever. I don't know about anyone else but I think this will be easy for Cotto.

If cotto can't hurt this guy it will be tough for him. All trout has to do is avoid the big shots or have a high guard and walk cotto down like clottey or marg.

With Floyd being as slick as he is, and Miguel being able to land some meaningful punches (more than he was given credit for), then Trout will have a fight on his hands. Cotto was able to clinch, move, and pretty much bully a bigger Margarito, then months later, maintain a steady and effective pace against arguably one of the slickest fighters of this generation...then he may have prepped himself good for this fight.

I have no doubt ( (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) ) that Trout could win this one as well. Also understand that Trout has the tendency to makes fights boring, so Miguel best try his hardest to look cool, calm, collected, and ready to serve up an oscar-nominating asswhoopin'.

i just don't see cotto winning this one. trout is huge for 154 and has very good power, he is not a belt holder for nothing. Cotto's punch resistance isn't good, especially in the latter rounds. I expect him to look good in the beginning and get stopped late. I love cotto but the margarito fight took too much out of him.
