If Guerrero performs like Trout did and May fights like Saul, then yes Guerrero should win the fight. Oscar De La Hoya landed shots on May but May was more accurate and the busy fighter that night.
Trout was the busy fighter, yes Saul improved and looked great in some spurts but come on Cshels it was close and again I give it 7-5 or 8-4 to Trout but its whatever.
Lol, I should make this very post part of my sig...just so I can hold you to it. *still considering it*
If Trout was as busy as you say he was, then that would've made Canelo just as busy (which he wasn't). If Trout was so busy, then why was the fight so freakin' close??? This frustration isn't 110% directed towards you, but more towards Trout.
As much of an asshole as you guys think I am for repeating this, I have to do it...if a fight comes down to a 7-5 affair, then it's sure to end in controversy. To me, 7 rounds to 5, is too damn close to 6-6 (a draw), so some judges will "give" a certain fighter that ONE round, just to avoid a draw.
As strange as it sounds, a robbery is always better than a draw. We're all sitting here discussing the decision last night, but think of how sour we'd be if that fight was scored a draw. We'd want ONE of the fighters to win, but the fact neither of them would've actually won (if a draw occurred), then that would've been a HUGE waste of out time.
Well, now that I think about it, I still have that "draw" feeling, because I had Trout edging it by a pre-teen's pubic hair, but Canelo won, and there's no chance of a rematch because the oh-so shitty contracts have been signed. Those contracts were whack...they just about as whack as biscuit-chin Khan going into D.C. to fight Peterson WITHOUT a rematch clause, then begging like a bitch after the "questionable" decision was announced.
Trout's not a draw (translation: bring in money) like Khan, so he can eternally bitch and moan (if he so chooses to) for a rematch, but his voice wont be heard. Sad, but true. If anything, Trout will get Canelo after he gets Cotto (which is coming this fall), then Mayweather. He can be 2-0 or 1-1 in those fights, THEN he'll come back and decide to fight Trout...if he so pleases. Trout put himself in a bad spot, just as Cotto did when he decided to fight Trout.
PS: I wonder if Cotto will get the bigger split when he and Canelo fight. Common sense says "yes"...its not like he Mosley begging for a payday, but in the boxing world, Cotto will end up getting the smaller cut. If GBP gets real bitchy, then it may be a 51/49 split like it was in the Pac/Hatton fight...or it was some weird number like that. Lol
