Austin Trout did everything right against Miguel Cotto.He boxed perfectly against Cotto,landing the jab all night and connecting with more snap than I thought he had.All in all it was a great fight that surpassed expectations.
Cotto never could get in a groove against Trout’s size,reach and jab.Not only did Trout outbox Cotto,he handled all Cotto’s power as well.Cotto landed some flush shots to the face and body that I thought would hurt Trout but it never even wobbled him.It was Trout that seemed to hurt Cotto a few times.Most rounds were close but Trout definately won this fight.Maybe not 11 rounds to 1 like the one judge had it but he did win 116-112 in my opinion.
We may have seen the last of Cotto now.He was already talking about spending more time with his family and that the end is near.Will he start over now trying to get another big fight.Canelo is out now and forget Mayweather and Pacquiao.The best he may get is a Trout rematch.Will that be enough for him to fight again? Maybe,but I can see Cotto hanging the gloves up after this one.
