Trout is a good fighter with a style to bother floyd but he gets a bit overrated. Watched the cotto fight and while he won it wasnt amazing. Floyd performed better against cotto than trout while being a lot smaller.
Still to answer the question he is more proven than canelo and so I think his chances against floyd are a lot better than canelos both by being proven and based on styles.
I will be really really surprised if they let Canelo fight trout. Canelo wants that fight because fighters have egos and he thinks he can beat trout easily but the business people know that is a HUGE risk when the floyd fight is all but guaranteed. Sort of like Chavez had to practically beg TR for the right to fight Martinez. Chavez wanted it bad because he has an ego but TR did not want that fight at all. If canelo doesnt basically demand the trout fight it wont happen.
