That's the issue with Mundine in relation to not taking the fight.
Mundine said he was searching for bigger and better things by not taking the Trout fight (in addition to the messing around from both camps with inking the fight) and now Trout has scored a fight with Cotto, which was a goal of Mundines.
He'll have to fight someone credible in his next fight to provide some justification for his course of action.
I wonder how much Trout will be making from the Cotto fight? Given Cotto has made almost $20m in his past two fights with Margarito and Mayweather, you would think he would make some handy coin.
