Am I the only person who thinks that fight was pretty close? People are talking as if Canelo walked all over Trout and I really feel they are putting too much emphasis on his performance. I have no problem with him getting the win b/c i believe he did win the fight but IMO the KD was difference. Trout is no Mayweather when it comes to speed and defense. I think Canelo is great fighter but I'm wondering if the Trout fight is a good measuring stick to see how he fairs against Mayweather. Let's not forget that this fight was in Texas and they where doing open scoring which I think ultimately caused Trout to alter his game plan and fight in a way that he is not accustom to. Anyway I want to know what you guys think.

lets be real trout wasn't going to win a decision against canelo.

not when you have a future floyd vs canelo fight looming.

As soon as I heard the fight was in Texas it was over. Come on guys.. Texas, do we need to watch paulie vs diaz post fight interview again?

I had trout up 3 points, wasn't complete dominance but canelo didn't so nearly enough to win the majority of the rounds. It's like these people that argue for Tim Bradley against pac.

Trout was busier more effective and consistent... Just not in Texas I guess.

Me too and like you I thought Trout was the busier fighter coming forward (effective aggression), landing his jab cleaner and more often but I knew that unless he knocked Canelo down that he was not going to get a win in SA with that Mexican crowd influencing the judges open scoring system.
