When: December 1st, 2012
Where: Madison Square Garden - New York
Why: WBA Super Welterweight Title Match
Bet on one of the most exciting boxing match ups of the year, when a 12 round battle take place between four-time and three-division World Champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30 KO) Vs. WBA Super Welterweight World Champion Austin Trout (25-0, 14 KO’s) that will take place on December 1 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, televised by Showtime.
Cotto is four years older, which probably doesn’t mean much except that he has had a whopping 40 fights against the best in the sport. Trout is a southpaw, which could be a factor since Pacquaio is also a leftie and did a number on the Puerto Rican in 2009.
Miguel Cotto, enters this bout 3-1 dating back to 2010. His last time out was an inspiring effort against Floyd Mayweather that saw Cotto come up short. He is now getting back in the ring and contending for a world title, though this time it won’t be against one of the top names in the sport.
Cotto, of Caguas, Puerto Rico,is one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world. He has held a world title every year since 2004 while winning 16 of the 19 world championship bouts in which he has fought. Puerto Rico’s most exciting fighter and one of its greatest of all time, Cotto has fought some of the most talented fighters in boxing, including Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, Shane Mosley and Antonio Margarito.
Austin Trout, at 5'10" legitimate junior middleweight, is simply a bigger man than former junior welterweight and welterweight titlist Cotto. The undefeated “No Doubt” Trout, of Las Cruces, N.M., has made three successful defenses of his WBA title. The 2004 U.S. amateur champion is a former alternate for the U.S. Olympic team and is considered one of the most avoided young champions in the sport.
Cotto, who is listed at 5'7" and was fairly small height- and reach-wise even at welterweight, has been able to use his great skill to succeed at 154 pounds, where he's beaten Antonio Margarito, Ricardo Mayorga, and Yuri Foreman, and lost to Floyd Mayweather. Margarito and Mayorga were at their best at 147 pounds, too, while Mayweather, of course, has traveled in weight from 130 pounds at the start of his career. Foreman, meanwhile, was simply not physical at all, and also suffered a bad knee injury in his fight with Cotto.
This is one of the big things that makes Trout, a live dog on December 1. If he can use his size, and you add in the fact that he can box and can move well, then Cotto could very well have a long night in the ring awaiting him.
Of course, boxing has a long history of some "little dudes" putting the hurt on bigger foes for a variety of reasons, and we've seen smaller guys in fights turn into the bully many times. The bottom line is, Trout has to be prepared for someone better than he's ever fought, and Cotto has to be prepared for what might really be the first true, natural 154-pound fighter he's faced.
