He just posted it on his Facebook page saying him fighting Roberto is just a rumor....thank god, I have been waiting for some words from him for the longest! I am never paying any attention to who is he going to fight unless he himself announces it.

However I believe we will know the name soon as January closes down and if he is to fight on May 4th, his training camp and promotion should commence at the end of February or maybe even sooner. I think I'll be as surprised as when he announced hes fighting Ortiz. Didn't see that one coming!

Can you think of any other unlikely names that could end up in the mix?

till Mayweather beats a legitimate 154lb champion there's no way he can simply beat Trout. I have my doubts about the Canelo fight too, but I think Mayweather outboxes him but who knows, he's shown he can be hurt.

Trout definitely didn't dominate. He clearly won. However to say Trout dominated that would mean trout thoroughly outclassed Miguel. He didn't dominate. He was up 2 rounds (115-113). Cotto put up a great fight. That was a nail bitting fight. An ENTERTAINING high energy fight. I'd go out on a limb and say that fight was even more exciting and competitve than Mayweather-Cotto. They both split rounds with Cotto. Trout's win was just more impressive because he was an underdog, and he beat cotto at the Garden. Just because it's expected of Floyd to always win and he abnormally ended up winning under tough circumstances doesn't make Trouts win more definitive because he was the underdog. It does however bring a Mayweather-Trout fight into question which as a Floyd fan i wouldnt want to see but as a boxing fan I'd vouch for. It could go either way.In the ring Trout had just as much trouble as Floyd did. Trout was younger, and used his legs. Trout-Cotto took pace throughout the entire ring. Mayweather -Cotto was fought in a corner on the inside. That style Floyd used imo was way more difficult than fighting an athletic fight such as Trout did. Trout's stamina and ability to move throughout the ring was Cotto's Kryptonite. Trout i was a young strong big JMW fighting a Cotto that just came off a heartbreaking loss. Floyd was a welterweight fighting at JMW that beat Cotto coming of a 3 KO win streak including Margarito. And they both arguably had equally competitive fights.

I dont even know what to say about Canelo. He hasn't faced anybody notable. And as a 154 world champion holding a belt there was NO HONOR in him defending a title against Lopez. He should've taken that disrespectfully. Josesito Lopez is no Roberto Duran. Canelo Mayweather right now shouldn't even be a discussion. Lets see how he does against Trout first. At least Guerrero fought a #1 contender at welterweight.

i had cotto/trout 9-3 in favor of trout. i had mayweather/cotto 7-5 in favor of floyd. cotto busted mayweather up...and for a guy who very rarely loses rounds...that fight was more competitive than any mayweather fight i ever saw. as for trout...cotto landed his best punches on trout and he just ate them and kept going. at the end of that fight...cotto was busted up. i get ur point about the bouts they just came off of...and u have a legitimate argument there. trout and canelo both bring something floyd hasn't seen in a while....youth, size and skill. cotto brought skill to the table. ortiz brought youth and size. trout and canelo bring all 3...i'll even add one to canelo and that's punching power. even though canelo's resume is suspect, one thing is for certain...he hasn't lost yet. neither has trout. i'd like to see floyd show us how to beat each guy. both are obstacles standing in the way of his retirement. it would be a huge statement if he fought those two prior to retirement. i seriously doubt he faces trout though because floyd sr won't allow him to face a southpaw...especially one with as much skill as trout.

I like that 9-3 scorecard. Floyd got busted but again he fought in a corner on the inside all night. Trout fought a young mans fight. Very true, trout did eat Cotto's punches better than Floyd did. But you do make valid points. Trout is a big threat for certain.

While Canelo has power, i give Trout the bigger chance to beat Floyd beacause i think he's far more skillful. He's more athletic than Canelo and i think he's faster. While Cotto isn't the fastest power puncher in the game i realized trout was able t time his punches effectively. Two things Canelo and Trout do lack a defense. Cotto was catching Trout flush and Canelo even got caught a few times by Lopez.

I think experience and defense would play a big part in Canelo losing to Floyd. He's powerful but that right hand will tag him all night as he tries to hook to Mayweather's body. If mayweather wins thats the only way i can see it happening.

As for Mayweather Trout I have no clue how that fight will go. If Trout is to beat Canelo, Mayweather will probably try to let him face Ishe Smith first.

If Canelo is to lose to Trout on May 4 (Which is very likely) I'd love to see Canelo-Cotto. I would still love to see that fight.
