So, was the decision really controversial? I've heard that Canelito won by a pretty wide margin on some reports, and others are saying Trout clearly won. WTF is the deal?
I read Trout's comments after the fight and he seemed to admit that Canelito won the fight fair and square. So, the conflicting reports are confusing... I'm still PISSED I didnt get to see the fight.
I think the "controversial" was the 118-109 score Canelo got, which just showed that judge filled out his card before the fight.
As for ppl saying Trout won, I think it just depends on your preference. Canelo definitely landed the better power punches, but Trout definitely threw more punches (although Canelo landed more overall). The knockdown got Canelo the win in my mind, both really showed that they are the tops @ junior middleweight.
If the Canelo/PBF doesn't go through, I would love for them to have a rematch.
