Alvarez has done nothing to suggest he can hang with Trout, so why are people making a case for Trout to angle for Alvarez?
The outrage exists because Alvarez is young any many feel like he's done nothing to deserve the leverage to choose who he fights, and bypass more deserving boxers. Also, the fact that Lopez beat Ortiz whom Alvarez was set to fight, but not fighting Trout seems shady and quite honestly the most blatant duck in recent memory. You know the whole Mayweather vs Pacquiao fiasco? Well, it looks like Canelo will be doing similar things with every worthy opponent for his entire career.
