Let us debate: Cotto and No Doubt Trout

Everyone that either witnessed or observe the fight between Miguel Cotto and WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout were obviously in for a surprise. Whether you were like me, and believed that Trout would pull out the victory, but he was going to have to dominate being at MSG. Whether you were the latter and […]

Miguel Cotto should fight Kirkland next, or rematch Austin Trout

By Jorge Lugo: I find it funny that everyone is jumping on the “Cotto should retire” campaign. Truthfully, after watching Cotto vs. Trout three time’s it’s clear that the first six rds were even, and that Trout won because he pulled it out in the 2nd half (with Cotto still putting out an effort but […]

Pacquiao: Cotto doesn’t look like the same fighter he once was

Cotto was overtrained for Trout, says Hunter

By Allan Fox: Expert boxing trainer Virgil Hunter wasn’t surprised that Miguel Cotto (37-4, 30 KO’s) was beaten last Saturday night by WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14 KO’s) because he felt that Cotto’s physique, and the way he fought, looked like someone that had over-trained during preparation for the fight.

By Dan Ambrose: WBA World junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14 KO’s) says he’ll give Miguel Cotto (37-4, 30 KO’s) an immediate rematch if Cotto wants it or if boxing fans question who results of his 12 round decision win over Cotto last Saturday night in New York.

Cotto needs to move back down to 147 if he wants to prolong his career

By Allan Fox: The short 5’7″ Miguel Cotto (37-4, 30 KO’s) really never had the size to be fighting at junior middleweight to begin with after moving up to the division back in June 2010 when his then promoter Bob Arum matched him against one of his Top Rank stable fighters Yuri Foreman, who had […]

Is Trout now too dangerous for Mayweather?

By John F. McKenna (McJack): With his impressive 12 round unanimous decision over Miguel Cotto (37-4, 30 KO’s) it is quite possible that undefeated Austin Trout (26-0, 14 KO’s) has eliminated himself from consideration of being a future opponent for WBA light middleweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26 KO’s). Trout decisively defeated the popular […]

Trout: I would beat Saul Alvarez like I did Cotto

By Dan Ambrose: WBA World junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14 KO’s) is convinced that he would have schooled 22-year-old WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (41-0-1, 30 KO’s) as easily as he did with Miguel Cotto (37-4, 30 KO’s) last Saturday night had Alvarez been in the ring with him instead of […]

Trout’s stock goes up after beating Cotto; Mayweather’s stock goes down

By Allan Fox: In comparing how Floyd Mayweather Jr. and WBA World junior middleweight champion Austin Trout both dealt with the same opponent Miguel Cotto in beating him this year it would seem that Mayweather’s skills are really starting to deteriorate at 35. Mayweather had to really struggle to beat Cotto, and the outcome was […]
