Austin Trout Will Help Macklin Defeat Sergio Martinez

By Ryan Burton
 
BoxingScene.com has been advised by WBA "regular" junior middleweight champion Austin Trout that he will traveling to New York to help Mathew Macklin get ready for his HBO televised fight against middleweight beltholder Sergio Martinez, which takes place on March 17th at New York's Madison Square Garden.
 
"I am going to New York for a month to train with Macklin.  He is getting ready to fight Martinez so I am going to help him out and it will help keep me sharp.  I am going to be primed and ready," said Trout.
 
Trout, who is a southpaw like Martinez, is hoping to have his next fight finalized soon.  The 5'10" Trout last fought in November when he knocked out Frank LoPorto in 6 rounds.  Trout also told Boxingscene.com that he is aiming for an April ring return.

Ouch. Trout knows Martinez very well and forced him to take a break when they were sparring. This may save Chavez from that fight.

If he can't beat a guy like Sergio Martinez, he should retire.

nice jesture but Trout needs 2 do something 2 establish himself as an elite champ, which he hasn't done, maybe fight a valid contender not Lopez or LoPorto...
