Canelo vs Trout: Full fight highlights from Showtime, including Figueroa vs Cotto

If you missed last night's Showtime fights, here are the highlights from a big night in San Antonio.

Canelo Alvarez won the decision last night, but there's plenty of debate (good, honest debate, largely) about who deserved to have his hand raised in the Alamodome, though Austin Trout himself did not argue the decision, saying Canelo was the better man.

Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO) without question did more damage in the fight, and Trout (26-1, 14 KO) may have deserved to win rounds where it was more, in a way, that Canelo didn't do much than Trout did anything really noteworthy. Trout's jab was flicked out plenty, but landed at a very low rate. Canelo's solid defensive work in the fight may have wound up the actual difference in the end -- sure, the power punches he landed, including a knockdown, were significant, but Trout just didn't land much, and really didn't land a lot that made a significant impact.

Omar Figueroa's one-round destruction of Abner Cotto was a statement of arrival at 135 pounds in the co-feature, somewhat lost in the shuffle after the big fight main event. How far can he go? I think we'll start finding out sooner than later.
