Austin Trout: "They gave me a call and said, 'Do you want to fight Cotto?' I didn't believe it. I was like, 'Well, yeah, duh.' But I wanted to fight Sugar Ray Leonard, too. 'Since we're fantasizing, you're telling me I get Cotto on December 1st?' I dropped the phone. I didn't believe it."
Miguel Cotto: "Austin Trout, he had the belt, because he earned it. He won the belt. Nobody gave it to him, you know? He has his moment right now. But I've faced everybody in boxing, on all levels. This is going to be new for him. I bet on my experience. On my courage. Every time I go into the ring. And I can guarantee you today, I'm going to be the new champion."
All Access: Cotto vs Trout premieres tonight at 10:30 pm EST on Showtime, just before ShoBox: The New Generation. The fight takes place on December 1 at Madison Square Garden. If you've missed anything, check our Cotto-Trout coverage page.
