[QUOTE=-Kev-;13168025]Cotto wasn't that much of a loser in that fight. Easily a 6-6 or 7-5 fight.[/QUOTE] I actually had that fight around 7-5 fyi. Right around the same as Cotto/Floyd.

[QUOTE=RiC-DiC;13168015]Haha Miguel's fist made Austin squirt. Prime Cotto would have whipped Trout's behind.[/QUOTE] Prime Cotto was too small for Trout.
