Boxing: Tasty Trout batters Cotto

Undefeated American Austin Trout jabbed his way to a unanimous points decision victory over Miguel Cotto to retain his WBA light middleweight title at New York's Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.

Two judges scored the fight 117-111, with the third awarding it 119-109 all for Trout, known as "No Doubt", with Cotto's face left bruised and swollen after the contest.

"Cotto is a great champion. It's just an honour to be in the same ring with him," said Trout.
