He seems the same as he's always been. The vacant belt critique is old, everybody knows he's fought and beat solid competition.

I scored it 9-3 or 10-2 I don't remember exacty. I thought it was a pretty dominant win.

Trouts just too big and has a totally wrong style for Cotto. I could see Cotto getting stopped late in a rematch. Trout didn't seem effected at all by Cotto's power.

Agreed, but Cotto did find a home for his left hooks and those were pretty darn clean, which leads me to think Canelo who is a full fledged young Jr Middle weight will find a home for his left hook and I am sure the results will be a little different

Cotto gave Trout all he can handle in one of his worsts performances. He'll take on Trout again if he wants because Austin wont refuse the money. However, lets not jump the gun and assume Trout gets past Saul just yet.

The **** you mean the champs family gets the door closed on them when they attempt to attend the weigh in the **** kind of shit is that? Trout gave Cotto an opportunity at his world title end of ****ing story
The opportunity comes in the way of exposure for a guy that no one cared if he held a belt. Cotto was and still is the super star in this scenario. Not only did he give Trout the fight, he removed himself from the may 4th fight with Canelo which he could have had if he wanted it....Schaefer seemed to be on board.

Canelo's certainly faster and definitely stronger. I don't know if he's as crafty though... to be soon (hopefully)

He doesn't deserve it but Trout would be up for it because it'd be a decent payday and a relatively easy nights work.

You know it doesnt take much to qualify for a title shot these days my point is if he is going to get one why not have him fight the winner of that fight and if anything bring something to the table when he faces the winner of Trout Alvarez

Sure he does deserve a rematch, he gave Trout the shot when no one wanted to, Trout owes him one in return.

I believe that the title he won from Foreman was not a vacant title.
