What I want to ask the community is, do you think Trout and his people KNOW the fuckery that he is walking into with Alvarez being the draw and the Texas commission's appointment of officials in "Cinnamon Head's" favor? Do you think Trout will be given money to throw the fight? Would he take a bribe? I don't think so, but who knows.
I believe Trout and his team know what they're walking into when it comes to Texas, but the biggest question is, will they be naive and hope that the "fans" will take their side enough to protest a bad decision here?
That's my whole mind frame after bad decisions are called in boxing, don't worry about me and what they fans "know they saw", you should've been going for the knockout, regardless.
Some of these guys (and their team) want the sympathy of the fans after a robbery instead of worrying about that 'L' on their record. Hell, some teams don't even try to avenge the robbery, they just carry themselves like, "we know who really won the fight", while the culprit moves on in his career and makes the big bucks.
A robbery is inevitable here...Canelo and his people (and fans, and promoters, and managers, and whoever tha fuck) wants to see him face Mayweather...no need to ruin that over a guy that no one really knows. Of course Trout beat Cotto, who lost to Mayweather...so....where was that train even going?
Cotto took a bad fight, let Canelo sit back in a safety zone, and now Canelo's gonna "win" this Trout fight, come hell or high water, so he can continue chasing Mayweather. Even if the Mayweather fight doesn't happen immediately after this "win" over Trout, guess who Canelo can STILL fight and make great money off of? Yep you got it, Miguel "Please the fans even if its a bad business decision" Cotto.
Thanks Cotto, for trying to please the fans against a stylistic nightmare that no one knew about (and still doesn't know), and ending up playing second fiddle to somebody who doesn't even deserve a janitorial position in the sport (Canelo).
I voted for Trout by close decision, but let's just be real here, we ALL hate how Canelo's being handled (business wise), so he's going to upset the apple cart JUST because we want to see him lose. I believe he can stop Trout, and chances are, he will....juuuust because we cant stand his situation right now. Lol
