Cotto vs Canelo prediction: Felix Trinidad chimes inWritten by Leroy Cleveland
Cotto vs Canelo: There's at least one Puerto Rican great on record as not liking his countryman's chances.
Fight legend Felix Trinidad recently told BoxingScene he believes Canelo is simply too young and too strong for Cotto but prefaced his statement by insisting it would be a tough fight.
Alvaez will likely be the favorite because he is younger, has less ring wear and is presumably the faster, stronger and more explosive fighter but are many underestimating Cotto?
Miguel has been labelled 'damaged goods' by many since 2011 yet he continues to impress in the ring. Aside from his December 2012 loss to Austin Trout, Cotto has engineered impressive outings since his Autumn 2009 loss to Manny Pacquiao.
Even in losing to top pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather in May 2012, Cotto made a fine account of himself in what became an action-packed affair. As a matter of fact, Miguel's performance against Floyd exceed Canelo's the following year.
Who do you like in Cotto vs Canelo, and is Trinidad underestimating a fighter who, sans for one bout, has been very solid the last six years.
