Trout leaves no doubt and whoops Cotto in New York

Miguel Cotto Vs. Austin Trout

 

Current champ Austin Trout (26-0) retained his title in a very impressive 12 round unanimous decision over future hall of famer Miguel Cotto. Trout used his jab well, and was able to have success on the inside as well. Cotto came on late in a few of the rounds, but was not able to steal them. Trout showed that he's not just a finesse type fighter. Big win for Austin Trout who earned a well deserved victory.
