Trout doesn't need to resort to all that useless jazz you speak of. There's enough fan interest to see the Canelo-Trout fight that Saul will feel pressure. If Canelo ends up fighting a lesser opponent then fire away with your criticism. Otherwise calling him out for not participating in some kind of cheesy face-off is just utterly ridiculous and childish. You'll see plenty of that during pre fight pressers anyway. So why does it matter so much? It doesn't. And that's the truth.
people arre sick of gbp and canelos bullshit. 100's of thousands of fans saw trout call out canelo.
if canelo ducks him to fight another blown-up, washed-up ww then an additional 100's of thousands of fans will know that canelo is a fraud.
trust me, if that was kessler calling out ward and ward left the building no one would make anything out of it.
but when your best win in the two years youve held captive the wbc belt is a ryan rhodes who then retires after his next fight people are going to "jump on every opportunity" to ridicule said fighter, especially when he actively seeks out the losers of fights as opposed to the winners(molina/cintron;williams/lara) and cherry-picks clearly shot fighters(mosley) and fighters out of their weight class(josesito).
love the fact that trout, a well-spoken and respectable person, audaciously calls out and embarrases "el corredor."
