Trout is much bigger than cotto. As far as ppl I know in the industry, none of them know why cotto took this fight. It might be his biggest mistake since leaving top rank.
Right, but Trout is a trchnical boxer and he never really pressures. Besides Maywather, Cotto's only losses have come when he gets barraged with shots nonstop over a fight and succumbs to the pressure. Cotto does fine against guys like Trout who box rather than brawl. Plus if it's anything close on the scorecards at MSG, they"ll give it to Cotto like they did in Clottley - Cotto. Cotto by decision, 116-112 type of score is my guess.
