deepwater says:

Trout looks huge compared to cotto. I'll be going to this one for sure. Cotto at MSG is an experience.almost like a Trinidad fight . I sure do wish Trinidad was still around to clip Lil Floyd with a hook and see what happens .

Mr. Lex Luthor says:

What would happen is that Floyd would now be 44-0.

ali says:

Trout does not impress me at all. I see Cotto winning this fight by UD. Hopefully im right cuz that would set up the fight of the year in 2013 between Canelo & Cotto.

deepwater says:

trinidad beats floyd . ko or dec is the ?

Carmine Cas says:

Floyd outboxes trinidad easily, trinidad was nothing special. I hope Cotto wins....

Radam G says:

Floyd stays away from tall, hard-hitting fighters. Money May woulda ducked Tito, as Money has done tons of tallies. Maybe Tito would have clipped Money May. Holla!

SouthPaul says:

Tito brought the heat and excitement. Attended many boxing events but it's him vs Vargas that was most exciting of them all. Great brawl, great crowd.
