Austin Trout: Canelo is Easier To Hit Than Miguel Cotto

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBA "regular" junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (25-0, 14KOs) is not holding his breath for a potential unification with WBC king Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs).

Miguel Cotto was being lined up to face Canelo on May 4th, but those plans are now in jeopardy after Trout won a lopsided decision over Cotto on Saturday night in Madison Square Garden.

Despite the loss, Canelo-Cotto is still a possibility for next year, according to Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer.

"I wouldn't be surprised [if Canelo-Cotto] still happened," Trout told BoxingScene.com.

"I think it was too good of a performance [against Cotto] where his promoter may not want to put him in there. I think his promoter wants to keep him as the Golden Goose and putting him in there with Austin Trout would risk all that."

When sizing up a Canelo match, Trout said he expects another impressive victory.

"It's something similar to this [win over Cotto]. He's a little younger. I think its a good fight. I think he gets hit easier than Cotto does," Trout said.

Cotto-Canelo will happen and Canelo will KO Cotto. I'm a huge Cotto fan but while I do think he came in heavy, overconfident and general just out of shape prior to camp that wasn't the only thing affecting his performance.…

CANELO will get knocked out by Trout. I can't believe the Canelo hype. Canelo is a poor man's Micky Ward.
