Cotto-Trout postfight quotes

Miguel Cotto: “I’m satisfied with the job I did tonight,” former three-division champion Miguel Cotto said after his loss to Austin Trout on Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York City. “I’ll go back to Puerto Rico and think. He came at me with both hands and it was a great fight. He fought until the end.”

Austin Trout: “Miguel Cotto is a great champion. “He’s a great fighter and it was an honor to be in the same ring as him. It’s even more of an honor to be the man to beat him. To have my hand raised against a kingpin like Miguel Cotto is a dream come true. Those shots that Cotto hit me with were strong and I knew he’d be strong, but it reconfirmed that I could take those shots. It was definitely the hardest fight of my career and when you fight someone as big as Miguel Cotto, it motivated me.

Showtime reporter Jim Gray asked Trout if he wanted to fight 154-pound champ Canelo Alvarez, who Cotto was scheduled to face had he dethroned the champion. “Give me Canelo – it’s time to unify this division” Trout said. “There are a lot of good fighters out there and I want to be the best.”
