I wouldn't call it "ducking" per say, but I do agree with your point. Let's put it this way: if Trout had the same earning potential as Canelo, I still don't think Floyd will take the risk, cuz there's no sure-fire method to beat Trout. He has the physical attributes and the style to give Floyd all kinds of hell.

He's not obligated to fight these big guys when thats not his weight class, and he cant make the weight! Anything he does at those weights, are his choice on whether or not he wants to bless us with those fights that are not obligated to take place!

Call Floyd a duck for not fighting pac, because Floyd is OBLIGATED to fight the best in his weight class! Trout will absolutely beat Floyd, and the fight is a waste of time.
You're right, Trout is a horrible style match-up for Floyd. A counterpunching southpaw who is taller, has longer reach, good handspeed, and uses his feet. When was the last time Floyd fought such an opponent?

I say no. Canelo is a bigger cash cow at 154 and Guerrero would mean Floyd went back to welterweight.
If he were to fight Guerrero, I can see people on her saying that he ducked trout and went down to welter weight to avoid trout.

I think your overthinking the thread question. This is the rule of the WBA:

1. The SUPER CHAMPIONS will be obliged to make the mandatory defense of their titles in a period no longer than 18 months against the boxer recognized as the World Boxing Association Champion of the corresponding division.

As it stands now, Floyd is the WBA Super Champion. Trout is the WBA Champion. The WBA has the power to force the fight.

The threadstarter is asking whether or not Floyd would accept the mandatory challege if it were to be forced.

That's how I understood the question at least.

I can't help but feel that you kinda contradicted yourself. In the Part of your post were you said that fight trout would do nothing for his legacy, wouldn't a win over trout mean more than a win over canelo. You stated that trout was slick jabs bigger, basically a more dangerous opponent while canelo is the protected untested fighter, basically a cash cow. Wouldn't a victory over the more dangerous fighter add to cottos legacy.
