Default Re: Cotto vs Trout was high altitude training a factor?

You'd have to stop more frequently to breath, you couldnt necessarily reach your thresh hold unless you had a training camp for the training camp. I'm not trying to take anything away from trout but Cotto just didnt seem to be himself that night and I simply dont buy the rumor that he is completely shot. Especially after his performance against Mayweather. I apologize if this was brought up in earlier forms

no.. I said before the fight if Trout can last into the later rounds and be hitting Cotto consistently then he will take over and win the fight maybe by late round knockout. The fact Cotto was training high altitude had more to do with him probably trying to fix his problem of tiring late in fights.
