Yeah kinda. Floyd could've put on his running shoes and fought Cotto exclusively from the outside (like I thouhgt he was gonna do if they fought way back) and we would've had a different fight. And yeah, I think Trout has enough pop to stop a Cotto bullrush. I'm not saying Trout isn't gonna get punished 'cause that's just silly its ****in Cotto but I think he's gonna do enough each round to outbox him. And yeah I agree Cotto is a massive step up, but I think Trouts physical capabilities and athleticism are too much for Cotto. But I admit I'm biased in favor of big size/reach advantage coupled with athleticism and good speed.
I hope Cotto puts a hurting tho.
