It was a very even fight. Canelo landed more solid shots but was very inactive at times.
I could see Trout winning if not for the knockdown. Trout was way busier but Canelo landed 85% of the big shots in this fight.

I had Canelo by a point. Not sure what that one judge saw to give it a 118-109 score, or hell even a 116-111.

There were some rounds where Canelo literally landed one solid shot after sitting back the whole round...

How do the corners know the scorecard during the fight?? Is that normal in boxing?

i didn't have him winning big. just can't see an argument for Trout winning.

So, what is next for each fighter?

Both should move up in weight I think. No one else really left to fight at 154 for them, though Canelo wanted to fight Miguel Cotto.

Trout should have thrown more power punches. He was expecting a completely different fighter according to him.

Canelo got cornered numerous times and used only his head to avoid the punches, that was awesome to see. He has mad power but I think he got tired very quickly. At this stage I think he wouldn't do anything to Mayweather.

Sergio Martinez would destroy both.

Cotto is damaged goods. The only thing Saul may gain is beating Cotto in a more impressive fashion than Floyd in hopes of a future bout with him (even though fight between common opponents are exaggerated and meaningless)
