Default Re: Austin ''No Doubt'' Trout Vs Saul ''Canelo'' Alvarez: Who Wins & Why?

The problem with Cotto is he fights in spurts. He's changed dramatically from the young hungry pro i recall at 140. The dude has to start putting his punches together, winning rounds, and fighting with a sense of urgency, instead of taking a Mr nice guy glorified sparring partner approach. Canelo can really punch. He's young. And he puts his punches together exceptionally well in 4 and 5 punch combinations. Trout has his hands full. And i don't think he punches hard enough to keep Canelo honest who will be in his face all night.
Cotto's fallen off. Its Canelo's time.
