Austin 'No Doubt' Trout spoke to the media after his big win over Miguel Cotto at Madison Square Garden in New York City Saturday night.
Las Cruces Native Austin "No Doubt'' Trout (26-0) took control of the bout at its onset and roughed up Miguel Cotto (37-4) winning a 12-round unanimous decision thus retaining the 154-pound title Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. Trout, not a crowd favorite, never wavered throughout the bout. Two of the judges scored the bout 117-111 while the third had it at 119-109.
"The Cotto fans were there in full force, all week, but they gave a level of respect that I didn't expect until after the fight... Ah shucks, not bad for a kid from Las Cruces."
