Austin Trout Focused on Shocking Canelo in San Antonio

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14KOs) can't wait to get in the ring with WBC 154-pound champ Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs) on April 20th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

The match was going to take place in on the May 4th show, featuring Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Robert Guerrero in the main event at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The match was moved when Canelo refused to fight on the undercard.

Trout returns from the biggest win of his career, a twelve round decision of Puerto Rican superstar Miguel Cotto in December.

"I am extremely excited to step to the next level. Alvarez is a strong fighter, undefeated. He is going in there with every intention of keeping his belt. We're both undefeated, but I'm sure I'm the best," said Trout to Carlos Gonzalez. "Although [Canelo] does some things like Cotto, he also does a lot of different things and therefore I am preparing with the same dedication and enthusiasm."

"I always keep training, so there is enough time to get ready [with the date switch]. In a few days I will be doing sparring sessions for 10 rounds. I wish it was on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather Jr., since it is a big event that receives a lot of attention, but for me the important thing is that we will give a good show in San Antonio."

[QUOTE=techliam;13106898]I can see Trout constantly landing his straight left to the body, wearing Canelo down. People call me crazy for seeing Trout being able to stop Canelo, but that body work, along with the fact Canelo is not that hard…
