I think this is a fair assumption. I picked Trout by U.D but tbh so many was picking Cotto I was starting to question my own opinion.
I don't feel Cotto is washed up by any means just Trout had the style and physical attributes too make Cotto look bad/old/washed up.
Hes a very good, slicker cagey southpaw and guys with that style can make other fighters look awful.
One of those styles IMO where no matter who you are or how good you are, you will never look very good against.
