Kevin McRae@@McRaeWritesFeatured ColumnistDecember 1, 2012

Austin "No Doubt" Trout came into a hostile environment tonight at Madison Square Garden and dominated Puerto Rican legend Miguel Cotto, winning a wide unanimous decision, to retain his WBA championship.

Trout fought a brilliant tactical fight, keeping Cotto at bay with his jab, and preventing the legend from mounting any significant offense.

The decision was highly unpopular inside the heavily partisan Garden, but it reflected the action in the ring, where Trout was dominant. 

With the victory Austin Trout moves to 26-0 and retains the WBA junior middleweight championship. Cotto drops to 37-4 in what could be the final fight of his illustrious career.
