Man, I'm not one of these Canelo apologist but I highly doubt that Cotto can beat Canelo. Cotto just looked bad in the late rounds, and Trout is not a heavy banger.
Trout is hard to hit and Cotto couldn't push him back to the ropes and bull him up close.
Cotto had a hard time getting up close and he had a tough time once he got there vs Trout. Then he had no hope on the outside vs the quick, long and slick southpaw.

Against Canelo, Cotto can outbox him from the outside if he uses his footwork/angles and keeps putting his jab in Canelo's face. Canelo has fast hands, but his feet are slow. Cotto can beat him
