Radam G says:

Wow! TSS scored it 115-112, Austin Trout. I scored in round 6-5-1 Trout, but in points 114-113 Canelo. I thought the knockdown got him over the edge. But the scoring by the judges went as I expected. No way was Austin Trout going to win -- not even by kayo. Holla!

SouthPaul says:

Trout missed way too many of those jabs, therefore , he wasn't really controlling much of anything . He came up short round after round... 1-12 .... From beginning to end... he kept throwing the jab but missing over and over. In a close fight , you go with the man who is landing the more authoritative punches. Trout himself knew he lost. Just listen to him in the post fight interview .

SouthPaul says:

I just reread the entire piece wrote by tss. I won't debate the scorecard, that'll be futile for more reasons than one, but I am lmfao seriously because you never mention the number of missed punches ??????? You can't talk this bout up without mentioning the absurd amount of punches that missed their target by both fighters, but specially how Trout kept coming up short with his jab. Seriously, poorly written piece here due insufficient accuracy.

the Roast says:

I thought this fight was hard to score. Canelo fell into the trap of trying to outbox a boxer. I scored it 115 -115. Even rounds and close rounds. I'd like to see a rematch not in Texas but Canelo should steer clear of that. Trout showed alot of class in defeat. The deck was stacked against Trout going in. Canelo is the fair haired boy. Floyd will easily beat the Ghost and we have Mayweather-Canelo in the fall. Early pick, Mayweather UD116-112.

amayseng says:

Good close fight.

I didn't score it I just chose to watch.

Thinking back it seems trout won more rounds overall

with Canelo landing the more showing punches, although not very often.

Canelo did bob and weave a make trout miss but did little to make him pay.


Wtf is partially open scoring??

Either open score every round or none.


Fucksakes.

amayseng says:

Although I felt it was a good fight.

It seemed both guys were terrified to get in the pocket.


It was a bit amateurish. No?

SouthPaul says:

I agree with two things you said, Roast; Canelo definitely tried too hard to portray himself as the red headed version of Sweet Pea Whitaker. Somewhat of poorly fought fight on his part yet at times he out boxed the boxer. He at times out Trouted Austin at his own game. I also agree ..tuff fight to score... Texted a friend who wasn't able to watch...told him a scoring nightmare was unfolding in Texas and it wasn't going to be cuz of inept judges . It simply was a very tuff bout to score and we all need to ease up on pointing the bad stick at the judges. It was doozy of a fight to judge!

SouthPaul says:

I saw the same... Definitely a standoffish type fight for both men. Specially the first 6 rounds . So many punches coming up short of their mark.

I'm with you there. I don't like even rounds but I found it hard to pick a winner in alot of rounds. I had 3 even and many close. It was a fun fight even if it was not what I expected.

SouthPaul says:

Yea, man, not to be a disagreeing prick but I ain't scoring that many even rounds ...ever.


I feel like torching this peice Mike wrote. Just wait till Deep Water reads this! War!!!!!!!! I envision him throwing that JOhhny Walker bottle across his living room. Lmfao

ali says:

SouthPaul I think u was right on point with everything u said about the fight. People have to re ally watch the fight cuz in my eyes Canelo clearly won, he made Trout miss so much throughout. Did he make him pay every time no but who does but I think he made him pay enough to win the fight.

ali says:

Canleo vs Cotto is next I don't think it Mayweather hes way too comfortable at 147.

deepwater says:

I had trout.canelo did not do enough to win and took his foot off the gas. Chavez sr would never take his foot off the gas like that. Besides being the mean looking red head canelo is not special.

SouthPaul says:

He didn't do enuff to win yet he knocked Trout down, rocked him multiple times...made him miss a an enormous amount punches . Okie dokie but I think some of you fight fans need to spend an entire year just watching and studying fights and sideline your predictions. I say that because it's obvious some of your fight prediction egos are Obstructing your better judgment .

I picked trout but I would admit it if canelo won . It was close enough to be a draw so if its close enough o be a draw both sides can see it their way.The knockdown was legit but trout came back that round. Trout had some moments and was very busy . It was a good fight . Canelo should of stepped on the gas and finished trout . He coasted the last round also because of the open scoring.

SouthPaul says:

I agree, he should've stepped on the gas. If there's a rematch..he'll knock Trout out. No doubt!

SouthPaul says:

Ali


Love the Cotto idea. Fireworks of a match up! Bring it on.
