Default Re: Austin Trout's Chances

This is a real estate fight. If Trout is able to keep Cotto at range, he could win a decision. He seems to have the physical tools to do so, but I don't think he will.

Cotto needs to apply intelligent pressure, which I think he will be able to do. Trout isn't a huge puncher and Cotto's lateral movement has improved greatly in the last couple of years. A return to the body attack would be nice.

I think I'll end up scoring the fight in the 7-5 8-4 range but a couple of judges have it wider and Cotto takes a decision.
