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

You want to know why Cotto gassed heavily?
Trout was landing heavy Left hands to his body along with stiff jabs to his body all through the fight. You could see the cummulative effects as the fight progressed and the apex was when Trout hit him in the body with his left that hurt Cotto and made him turn around and run to the corner.

That was all Trout, not his conditioning.
I agree here about the body shots from Trout taking the wind out of Cotto. Its not to dissimilar to what Mayweather did to Mosley. Notice, Mosley did not gas against Mora, Pacquiao or Alvarez because they made no concerted effort to go for body shots.
