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.
Manny Pacquiao's comeback fight has been moved from Oct. 13 to November, Top Rank head Bob Arum said yesterday. Macau would still be the venue. Arum said the month of October is filled with Chinese holidays and it is not ideal for an event to take place during that particular month. China is observing the National Day Week from Oct. 1 to 7. Pacquiao's next fight will be either against Mike Alvarado or Brandon Rios and Arum plans to divulge the name very soon. Pacquiao was left with Alvarado and Rios after Juan Manuel Marquez and Tim Bradley agreed to face each other on Sept. 14 in Las Vegas.
