So if you think Cotto will win by stoppage, just put Cotto by KO. if you think he will win by a UD, SD, MD, put that.

Good to see you in here Kid Boxing.

David if the fight isnt already happening you can switch your pick to challenge malden. And from now on if nobody else challenges the champ then its open for the person who fought for the title the previous week to do so.

As my post count goes down and I'm trying to commit to less time straining my eyes here (failing half the time, as I keep refreshing the pages, obsessively when I'm not concentrating on restraint), I've adopted a special IBRBR reading technique, for fights that I want to know what happened, but not that badly. It's a special kind of skimming in which I pretty much just read how he scored the round and whatever he capitalised. Unfortunately, if it's a boring fight and there's nothing exciting to capitalise, like "MACGRUBER LANDS AN ENORMOUS LEFT HOOK AND CORNGOOD IS DOWN!" I end up having absolutely no idea what happened, despite my attempt to catch up, save my eyes randomly picking up obscure references and highfaluting words my brain alerts me to being out of place, here.

Boy, oh boy, what a rough weekend.

Dang, and now Cotto or Trout? Man, that's rough. I like Cotto and I like Trout. I guess, as a pick, I'll take Cotto by UD.

RESULT:

11/30 - Joan Guzman vs. Khabib Allakhverdiev - 12x3 WBA World Light Welterweight Title
Allakhverdiev Tech SD8 - 76-75/75-76/76-75 - Guzman down in the 3rd by a left, and Allakh took really took the fight to him... The fight got stopped in the 8th on a injury and went to the cards while most of the reports say it should have been a TKO. At least the right man won, be it barely.

* Anyone can put down a little bit on how you think the fight will play out. It will also go into the featured fight video *



Bulletproof
I like Trout in what I consider a slight upset. Trout is better than people think. Cotto is a lot more shot than people think. Don't let the Mayweather fight, in which Floyd fought Cotto instead of picking him apart like we all expected to fool you. No disrespect to Cotto, but his time is about over.

Cotto vs Trout - Pre Fight Quotes

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


Cotto
ďTrout has been a World Champion and he deserves his recognition. I know why I accepted this challenge"

ďTraining in Big Bear was great and we accomplished all the goals that [trainer] Pedro [Diaz] had for us. Everything so far is going just as he planned. Iím feeling great.

ďPedro has been a great addition to my career and for our team. Everyone saw the results with my fights against (Antonio) Margarito and (Floyd) Mayweather. Now, weíll see how I perform against Trout.

ďTrout is not the only undefeated fighter that I have faced. He is not the first champion either. With that in mind, I will climb into the ring to win.Ē

"I am really excited to come back to my second home. Fighting at The Garden is always special for me and a true pleasure. There is something unique in the atmosphere and it means a lot to me every time I fight there because the energy of the fans gives me extra motivation. Austin Trout will be a challenge for me, but I will win my fifth world championship on December 1."

----

Everybody who knows Miguel Cotto knows that I donít pick easy fights. He was the next in line and Iím ready for him. Weíre going to see what happens on Saturday.

Heís fought in Panama and in Mexico but next Saturday heís going to be in New York with me at Madison Square Garden. Itís my home and there is nothing is going to be equal to that. Madison Square Garden is a special venue and heíll figure that out when he gets in there.



Trout
"Miguel Cotto needs no introduction. He's a true champion and one of the best fighters of the last 10 years, but I'm the present and future of the sport and this is just the showcase I need to prove to the world that I'm one of the best, pound-for-pound. I can't wait to fight in such a legendary place like Madison Square Garden; it's every fighter's dream."

"I am a lot bigger, physically, than him. That was the first time I had been right next to him. I knew pretty much about his dimensions. But seeing it up close, it was funny. But it was cool. We kind of looked at him and we agreed that if we need to, we can definitely push this little dude around."

... "He looked me right in the eyes, and a lot of people don't do that for as long as we were in the stare down. I didn't expect fear. But I thought that it was funny that he really had to look up a lot to do the stare down. I'm 5-foot-10, and I would say that he's about 5-8 or 5-7."


-----

There are 2 sides of Austin Trout: Austin Trout the fan and Austin Trout the fighter. I love to watch him fight but in the back of my mind I think that I can beat him. When Iím daydreaming about beating up somebody in front of a large crowd its one of those guys that Iím a fan of and he happens to be one of them.

My past experiences have not been on this level but practice makes perfect. The crowd can only do one thing and thatís make noise. It doesnít help him punch harder or move faster.
