Default Re: who wins cotto or trout and why????

It's going to be a close fight. Trout is a southpaw, which makes the fight interesting. Now, Cotto in the past has dealt with southpaws and this hook the liver is lethal. That will be his money punch through the fight to break Trout down.

Trout is actually a fairly good boxer, but he's lacking in power. He could outbox Cotto for the first few rounds before Cotto start to break him down and win rounds. If Trout wants to win, he has to bank rounds early and not get hurt in the later rounds, which he will probably lose.

I could see Cotto pressuring and trying to land his hook to the body and Trout trying to box. I favor Cotto to stop Trout late, but I won't be surprised at a split decision either way.
