I like the idea that Cotto is still in the running to face Alvarez.
I think Trout was a ballsy pick for Cotto. He took a high risk fight that not a lot of other top fighters would have touched (no WAY would Golden Boy match Canelo with Trout). He shouldn't be punished for taking a really tough fight and coming up short.
If Cotto's multimillion dollar payday is thrown away because he took a risky fight and lost, it helps reinforce the current precedent, and we won't get to see fights like Cotto-Trout.
