I had it 114-114 and so far the press scores i have collected have been around 50-50.

I will not be doing a fight report for my site as i have computer problems and on the work computer lol but i can collect scores when home and on twitter @thefightscore

The scores along with an average score from the press and fans combined will also be added on my site

Thanks for any scores provided.

What I keep seeing is that, because Alvarez didn't perform as well as hyped to do, and Trout did better than expected, it's skewed the perception of what actually happened. Trout had his moments for sure, but he was generally landing a jab on Alvarez's arms and gloves, or missing entirely. He got some good shots in and moved Canelo around, but from the third on, the ginger warrior was landing hard shots and generally avoiding much of what came back.

If he'd kept his workrate up, we wouldn't even be having this debate. I think @Pabby has it right - Trout's being credited for doing things he wasn't really doing. If Mayweather had lain on the ropes like Alvarez did and dodge eight of ten shots, we'd call it a masterclass. Because Alvarez does it, he's being pressured by Trout.
I agree there certainly were rounds early on where Alvarez was evading and deflecting almost every Trout jab and returning hard accurate punches. I was scoring the rounds easy for Alvarez. However I also recall rounds where Trout pressured a tiring Canelo, landed his jab more and put together combinations. While Alvarez was still returning hard counters they maybe weren't frequent enough to take the round.
