i've watched jordan play basketball for years...even at his advanced age...i seriously doubt that would serve me in any way shape or form if i were to play him one on one. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

"everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face." -m.tyson

cotto has seen all of what trout has to offer. he typically does very well against boxers who counter punch and allow him to fight at his own pace.

Well, if you don't play pro ball, then that analogy doesn't fit. In this case, Trout is a pro boxer, and he's been watching Cotto for years. I'm sure Cotto hardly paid Trout any attention until recently.

Cotto is NOT good against counter punchers....please show me that. Lol. Cotto has fast hands and can counter punch, but Trout is bigger and a bit faster than Margarito.

this kind of goes back to what i was saying before the floyd fight....

margarito was a big pressure fighter who forced cotto to fight at a pace he wasn't comfortable with.

cotto has problems with guys who pressure him and force exchanges. if u box him and allow him to fight at his own pace...he wins. the only time he didn't was against floyd.

margarito is 5'11...trout is 5'9. trout at the absolute best is a very poor man's floyd. sure...he's a counter puncher but his shit is not as precise, not as fast, not as automatic as floyd. i thought cotto won 5 out of the 12 rounds when he fought floyd. i think it will be fairly easy for him to win 6 or more against trout. especially in madison square garden.

Okay. I trust your scores for the Cotto/Mayweather fight, not sure about the Trout fight though. Really though, Trout had to strip to make weight earlier, and Cotto seemed unusually asshole-ish and confident...so you may be onto something. Trout looked a bit drained in the face and stressed a bit, regardless of what he said about being in good shape. I still have Trout by upset though.
