He gave Mayweather the fight of Mayweather's life and although lost, he left the ring at peace and felt as though he didn't legitimately lose. Miguel Cotto was just bullied by Trout. So we have an undefeated, SKILLED fighter coming off a big win against a great fighter and maybe even Alvarez.
3. With that said, the way he bullied Cotto could have a bigger effect on Mayweather due to the size difference. Cotto had a size advantage over Mayweather and was using that to his advantage.

So..Trout can potentially be the man to dethrone Mayweather. It is a legitimate test for Mayweather. If I put my money on anyone to beat Mayweather, it would be Trout.
This reads well and makes sense.

I will say though however, Mayweather beat Cotto on my card 9-3, can't see it any closer than 8-4. Don't think it was that insanely close. Castillo gave him two fights tougher for sure.

Its obvious Trout presents a real pertinent danger to all at JrMW, he's awkward, massive at the weight, and technically very sound, has a good fast jab, and his hand speed is somewhat blistering by and large.

He's one of those fighters nobody really wants to face

But, the point with Trout are these are his only four wins of any note.
Right, was referring only to Cotto and Delvin, which I think are significantly better wins than the other two.

He beat cotto better than Floyd did plus there was no drug testing so cotto could've been juiced to the gills for all we know.

I think relative to other boxers, they aren't that big on him. In fact I'd say he's often underrated.

On the contrary,I think Trout is over rated,if anything.He is a spoiler and will go to obscurity when Canelo dominates him.He's had his "15 minutes of fame".

If he's overrated I think it is to a lesser degree than other boxers are overrated so by contrast it makes it difficult for me to say people are big on him. I'm sure looking forward to the showdown between Trout and Canelo though.

I can't speak for anybody else but I am big on Trout because he is straight up genuine about being the best at 154. Regardless of what people say about his record, he has fought and beat whoever was put in his face and has always sought better opponets and bigger fights. He is not a prima dona. He wants to consolidate all 154 lb belts and that is admirable. Plus he doesn't have any big organizations hyping him up. People are playing him cheap and hatin on his skills but cream always rises to the top and Trout is on his way straight up.

I wasnt impressed with his performance against Cotto . Cotto looked completely sluggish and weak , and he still won 5 rnds against Trout in my eyes . Overall Trout won the fight , He beat Miguel and theres no arguing that . I love whenever theres new talent in boxing , but sadly i was disappointed when i saw Cotto/Trout , Austin didnt look good to me and failed to impress me .

The other day somebody gave me shit for scoring it 7-5 Trout claiming it was wider and that I was bias. I was like, "uh, think it might be the other way around, bro." Plus, I really didn't think that Trout took the shots that well, considering Cotto was gassed and pressing, not getting full power on his shots, it seemed.
