Agreed. Why the hell do I, as a fan, give a **** about how much money these fights generate? Canelo / Trout is a fight that makes sense now, not because it would make tons of cash, but because Trout earned his shot by beating Cotto.
If not trout, hell, there are other 154lbers that Canelo can fight, what he shouldn't do is go for Cotto - who, despite being a great fighter - has now lost two in a row in convincing fashion.
Goddmanit, give us good fights and the money will come in, it's just a long term strategy instead of a short term cash grab.
