Im sure GB is looking for a !40 pounder looking to move up to 154 lolPosted January 29, 2013 11:52 am
I like Austin Trout, but I think Canelo will beat him.Posted January 28, 2013 6:39 pm
Shy is Canelo so protectec by Goldenboy? why won’t they allow him to fight anyone that isn’t washed up or his true size???Posted January 28, 2013 2:08 pm
The way boxing is now, a fighter has no say so on who his next opponent will be. All these promoters want is a meal ticket and cause people to question their fighter’s heart and courage….No fighter is really afraid of another, but alot of keyboard warriors have nothing better to do than bash a fighter they don’t like. Just climbing thru the ropes takes alot of courage while writing negative comments takes no courage at all….when you see your opponent across the ring and realize it’s the real thing, then you know…but a fighter that promotes himself, well that’s a whole other thing…..Respect to anyone that is man enough to get in the ring…..Posted January 28, 2013 1:27 pm
Typo=I thought that Cotto would stop TroutPosted January 28, 2013 12:46 pm
I am a HUGE Cotto fan and I thought he would stop Cotto, but the idea that Cotto beat Trout is NONSENSE…. Trout was too strong, he outboxed Cotto and for a few moments had me worried he was going to stop Miguel… We forget that Trout had a belt in that ring as well and despite Cotto’s standing he had to come and win which he CLEARLY failed to do…Trout/Cotto does not compare with Manny vs Marquez… JMM was clincally effective in round 3 but he ONLY counterpunched and his volume was very low… All a judge had to do was miss a few of those counters (happens) or be more impressed with activity and its reasonable to see how Manny won…. Cotto was in his backyard and a just decision was rendered it would have been a ripoff if Trout lost that bout…Posted January 28, 2013 12:03 pm
Trout, in my eyes LOST to Cotto. If they scored it like scoring Manny PACIOU fights, Cotto won. Thats to say Cotto threw the more meaningful agressive punches throughout, but Trout won on volume. If Cotto were manny they would say that Manny was the Effective agressor ALL NIGHT AND THERE FORE WON. That said, I dont think Troiut would last 8 rounds with Canelo. Vanelo ios like Marquez, way to crafty and smart. Could make mid round adjustments and make them work to his advantage. I wasn’t impressed with Yrout at all. Hes a nice guy though. Should stick to broadcasting.Posted January 28, 2013 8:20 am
The Mad Scientist
I can understand people are pissed off that Canelo is not fighting the top contenders at 154lbs for whatever reason but to say Trout will school him or destroy Ginger is just pure hater crazy talk..Trout is getting too much credit for winning against Cotto while Canelo would’ve gotten bashed if he would’ve done the same..Posted January 28, 2013 4:12 am
Trout will school caneloPosted January 27, 2013 10:59 pm
angulo VS trout would be a good stoush …Posted January 27, 2013 7:58 pm
Trout is a good fighter, but not interesting to watch – rather see Angulo fight any day.Posted January 27, 2013 7:56 pm
It would be a great competitive fight but i think Canelo should take that risk against Lara a loss wont b as bad.Posted January 27, 2013 6:57 pm
trout should call out martinez at 154 and question the size of canelos balls every chance he getsPosted January 27, 2013 6:49 pm
Trout is a very good fighter and he definitely deserves to face Canelo. Cotto cannot be used as a guage to assert how good Trout is. He (Cotto) has been barely holding his own at the top level and will continue to get beat by good fighters. He should retire. Canelo will crush Trout. I am not a Canelo fan nor a Trout advocate, I just see the difference between a fighter that has sound skills and one that has good skills, devastating power and the heart to overcome that which is in front of him. Canelo may be protected by Golden Boy, but when they let him loose on some of these so called excellent fighters the truth will become apparent. Canelo is the real deal.Posted January 27, 2013 5:31 pm
Mexicans love the ginger freak show, so yeah Canelo is protected. He’s got power, but is slow and takes a lot of hits. Trout probably would beat him if he just stayed on the outside and peppered him to decision. Still, Canelo probably would Matthysse him into the canvas if they ever traded, so he’s not a total hypejob.Posted January 27, 2013 2:40 pm
I also think that cotto was a very disapointed he lost cause after the fight he left a with a very unsportsmanship attitude as if the judges should have given it too him because he was fighting at the MSG please you lost man grow up your suppose too be a man and except defeat nomatter what well he suck that nightPosted January 27, 2013 10:43 am
I totaly agree Canelo is being protected by golden boy and i do believe that trout will be him with no problem canelo gets hit alot mosley was just too old and he still gave him problemsPosted January 27, 2013 10:39 am
I believe that Canelo should fight Trout; however, looking at it from the business side of the equation, it’s not the best choice. There’s an obvious reason for Canelo and Floyd to be fighting on the same card…to prepare for a big showdown between the two on September. However, in order for that to take place they’ll have to win to their respective fight.
From that point of view, it doesn’t make any sense for Canelo taking a risk by fighting Trout… even if Canelo were to win the fight. We all know Floyd wants to retire with an undefeated record, as he already stated. If Canelo were to beat Trout, especially in an impressive fashion, there’s no way Floyd is going to risk his undefeated record against Canelo. And if Canelo were to lose to Trout, then we all know Canelo will be saying good bye to his biggest payday of his career. So either way is a no win for Canelo to fight Trout at this point.
Those are a few of the “business” reasons Canelo-Cotto would be a good choice…less risky for Canelo and still a competitive fight. Trout did beat Cotto, but it wasn’t a one-sided fight. I think a win against Cotto would be big for Canelo since Cotto did a good job against Floyd. I would be interesting to see and compare Canelo-Cotto to Cotto-Floyd’s previous fight.Posted January 27, 2013 10:05 am
Is Canelo camp that p-ssy… You move up a 140 pound fighter to 154 in Lopez cause he beat Ortiz but you do not want to fight Trout who easily beat Cotto? Do the right thing and give Trout his fair due…Posted January 27, 2013 9:44 am
This political / marketing manouevering is all that is wrong with boxing, Canelo needs to fight titlists in his own division, regardless of it being a hard fight he needs to step up, his record is piss-poor, he couldn’t finish off matthew hatton & wasn’t decisive vs ryan rhodes, mayweather would pick this guy apart, let trout do so then spend time building a Sept fight between Mayweather & Trout, 2 undefeated fighters shouldn’t be hard!Posted January 27, 2013 8:46 am
No chance GBP puts Canelo in with Trout. Too much money on the line for a September beating by the hands of PBF. Instead, look for Canelo fighting a blown up light welterweight (again) or a limited, shot fighter like Cotto or Cory Spinks.Posted January 27, 2013 3:53 am
but to be call out by another champ. Man Canelo is still interested in Cotto. How do this make since. I know its all out $ but it would good on there record for Canelo or TroutPosted January 27, 2013 2:48 am
i AGREE WITH U BUT ITS TIME FORcANELO TO START MAKING A MOVE .tTROUT IS A GOOD STEP WOULD U AGREE?Posted January 27, 2013 2:40 am
How can any one agree with a fighter being to risky when he is holding a beltPosted January 27, 2013 2:36 am
Trout is a HUGE risk and no reward for Canelo. Canelo wants a big money fight with Floyd. If he fights Trout, he most likely loses, and that FMJ paycheck will vanish.Posted January 26, 2013 11:37 pm
YeapPosted January 26, 2013 9:28 pm
hecdog cotto did not hit trout often that is why he lost the fight …Posted January 26, 2013 9:26 pm
what were they expecting cotto to beat trout i guess maybe make it close enough to get the decision (JUDGES) how does cotto feel about the fight now he wasnt a happy chap leaving the ring even though the contest itself wasnt even close …Posted January 26, 2013 9:25 pm
None of this comes as a SURPRISE. All one had to do is look at the way Canelo AND SCHAEFFER BOTH reacted AFTER TROUT DEFEATED COTTO. Canelo REFUSED to engage Trout in conversation when Trout called him to the ring and microphone during his post fight interview; and you could CLEARLY see Schaeffer waiting on Cotto in his dressing room after the fight; WHINING AND COMPLAINING ABOUT THE JUDGES SCORES. They don’t want any parts of TROUT OR MAYWEATHER if you really want to be HONEST ABOUT IT!!!!!Posted January 26, 2013 8:26 pm
funny how scrubs like Kirkland and Angulo haven’t had a fight as big as Trouts vs Cotto yet they’re fine options for Schaeffer……They’re ducking the sih like a blind shark, it’s pathetic. Trout would outbox Canelo badly and Schaeffer knows it.Posted January 26, 2013 8:16 pm
Martinez, GGG, and Quillin aren’t fighting each other either…are they? I don’t expect David Price and Kubrat Pulev to fight.. I don’t really expect a fight between Donaire and Rigondeaux to happen.. Mayweather and Pacquiao?
So why would anyone expect Canelo to fight Trout??? It’s a fight fans want to see.Posted January 26, 2013 7:09 pm
Well give Canelo his agreement that if he wins he get to fight Mayweather in September. It will never happen if he fights Austin he will get outboxed worse that his brother did against Trout. I think Canelo wants to fight Austin ,its that wus Schaefer thats scared to put Canelo in with Trout. I like Canelo he is very exciting but unfortunatly he will get outboxed.Posted January 26, 2013 6:26 pm
It’s Me, Ernie.
Something fishy besides Trout…Posted January 26, 2013 6:02 pm
the only problem with what your saying papa is that goldenshower expect people to pay to watch canelo fight the best …no or the second third or 4th best fighter is that right if they were paying themselves out of there own pockets i wouldnt have a problem with what you are stating though there not the promoters are pilfering the people to line there own pockets and if you understand that very fact why condone it …..Posted January 26, 2013 5:44 pm
Yahoo has said that fight with Trout is an almost certainty. Of course we have heard that before but it might and should happen. Enough protecting Canelo. Trout went in and beat Cotto at his place on a card he was promoting. That is far better than anything Canelo has ever done.Posted January 26, 2013 4:38 pm
Well, let’s face it; Trout is not a big money maker. Why risk losing for pennies, when there’s a chance to make a lot more money by taking on someone who could be less risky.
Oscar job is not to prove Canelo is a “macho man” who can take on anyone. His job is to make sure him and Canelo can make the most money possible. I believe the smarter fight to make at this point is Cotto. We all know Cotto is not getting any younger, it’s limited due to his size and he still popular enough to up the per-per-view numbers.
Trout needs to add more fights to his resume if he wants to be consider for the big fights.Posted January 26, 2013 4:21 pm
Agree with this article. Trout is much too risky an opponent for Canelo and GB Promotions knows it full well.Posted January 26, 2013 4:12 pm
