robert is a good fighter at 135....he is unproven at 147 and trout would giving him a boxing lesson by the way
Fighting Trout would be considered wasted. Trout doesn't have a following.
Robert has been boiling down to make 135 for years and showed up on the night of the fight at 153lbs. THe move to WW would a norm/relieve for him and made him stronger without having to weight drain. He obviously prove that he can hang with the WWs. Alydin and Berto were both very strong WWs and Robert was able to take his Alydin's shots and outmuscle Berto. So to say that Floyd have a strength advantage? I doubt that.
With the boxing pedigree that Robert have. I would not say he would get a boxing lesson from Trout.
