Cotto is not Trout’s gatekeeper. Trout does have a reach advantage, but so did judah, foreman, mayweather, Shane Mosley (4inch reach), and margarito (6″ reach advantange). Keep in mind Mosley held the Jr Middle title; while mayweather was and is the a Jr Middle champion. Trout does not possess a strong jab. In short, trout will not present anything that cotto has not seen. Like tyson has said, every one has plan until you get with a power shot. If Trout doesn’t keep his cool and execute; this will be a tko for Cotto by the 7th or 8th round. Trout’s only chance is taking the fight to the score cards.

Cotto is so cool, he is such a great guy. This guy fights everyone and never makes exuses win or loose, great guy.

all promotional HOF gushing aside, Cotto is playing gatekeeper to Trout’s contender. in fact, Cotto’s been little more than a protected gatekeeper at 154lbs. Cotto may be the best PR’s got but he’s nowhere near as great as the likes of Gomez, Camacho, or even Benitez. a loss v. Trout will seal the deal on a respectable career for a very capable champion.

Win or Lose, Cotto will always be a great Champion in the eyes of true Boxing Fans, just like Tito Trinidad…. because he fought the best and never looked for advantages over opponents or relied on Cheating Like MargaCheato and Chavez Chicken Jr…

Cotto’s one of the best in the business over the last 10 years…. Remarkable career… He’s been in exciting fights and a few ugly fights, but he’s never been in a boring fight.
