Tark, I have no problem dealing with guys like you. Gogue usually never makes predictions. He did think that Berto was going to win but so what? I explained why he doesn’t like to make predicitions. If you can’t understand that then you’re an absolute tool!!

Have a nice day!!

Is there any website to watch the fight tonight?

Right Herron… Gogue thought Berto was going to win. That’s obvious.. He was pretty confident.. For Cotto-Trout he said the super obvious and shied away from saying who he thought would win. Who gives a crap about people you call a–holes or what they say because you made a bad call.. Are you going to let others intimidate you? Do you think Barack Obama gives a damn what any rightwing fruitcake says about him that goes out to millions of viewers? He won’t watch Fox News unless he wants to laugh his ass off and hear about what an outrageously terrible and incompetent leader he is.

Have some courage. If you’re going to do an analysis on a fight that’s admittedly hard to call, step up and make a prediction. I mean Gogue. You do make predictions, at times.

It is without a shadow of a doubt native Puerto Rican and Puerto Rican boxers born abroad will give their best in the mainland and everywhere they have to go to and demonstrate their agility, ability and passive hostility.
These human beings will demonstrate what it takes to have heart just like they have done in every Conflict or War the United States has been involved. !With this said more power to them!
Respectfully Yours,

Interesting fight, have 2 lean 2wards Cotto though. Trouts way longer and taller and mite b a star in the making, have 2 wait and c. I don’t think cottos best work has been at jr middle. How much does Cotto have left how hungry is trout. The ref has an important job In this 1. Will he let Cotto rough him up n side or pull them apart. All will b answered soon

I ordered this fight because I finally got a DISH Hopper so I’ll be able to save this fight to the 2TB hard drive. My old DVR hardly had any memory so it was impossible to save good fights without one of my kids deleting it to make room for cartoons. One of the guys I work with at DISH thinks that this is going to be an incredible fight no matter who wins, and although I agree that it’s going to be an intense fight, I think Cotto is going to win.

This will be a snorebore fight. I already watched a 12 rounder void of fireworks in Fury-Johnson. Not doing that twice in a day especially on a Saturday night. Yes, Trout = Johnson: Boring, will fall far behind but still won’t try to win. No thanks.

Tark, Gogue usually doesn’t give predictions…it’s not like my “Head to Head” articles. It’s called “Big Fight Preview”…not “Big Fight Prediction”.

He usually doesn’t stick his neck out because of so many a**holes that will disregard his insight and merely pay attention to the prediction.

Honestly,the Berto/Guerrero analysis was a sound fight plan in which most people agreed before the fight.

If you read closely, you can tell who James Gogue thinks is going to win and how.

Koolz…. “Guerreo did what he did to win and beat up Berto.” … My problem is with the referee Lou Moret.. The bum issued a 100 warnings and never took a point, even when Guerrero threw 20 punches after the final bell, even as Berto turned and walked away he threw more. Berto was dumbstruck by the non-calls—and all the warnings—all night long.

If Guerrero knew no fouls would be called—and Berto didn’t… That’s a problem.

Tark I love how you keep bring up that Berto Ghost fight, he did what he did to win and beat up Berto.
yea this might be the end of Cotto. I don’t know what he did at Big Bear Lake.

Maybe he will know Trout’s game plan? If not this might not go the distance.

Austin has a good shot at winning the majority of rounds if he can stay with Cotto’s great jab. It’s not going to be a foul fest, or a Greco-Roman Wrestling event, like Guerrero-Berto. This fght will actually feature some great boxing. Trout has the height and range that should give him the edge … I pray it’s a fairly judged fight.

All the way Austin……………………

Gogue’s big fight preview didn’t include a prediction or any real analysis of how the fight should play out… Maybe because he screwed up so badly in picking Berto to beat Guerrero and the general nature of the action in that fight.. He’s guy shy, so he gave scenarios of what each fighter has to do to win, and says, “I can’t wait to see what happens.”

Cotto all the way

Gogue should have made a prediction. I predict that Cotto will win via 9-th round KO.
