Austin Trout Outboxes Delvin Rodriguez Over Twelve
Home Depot Center, Carson, California - WBA "regular" junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (25-0, 14KOs) outboxed Delvin Rodriguez (26-6-3, 14KOs) over twelve rounds of action. The scores were 117-111, 118-110 and 120-108.
They fought in a very measured and tactical manner. Neither fighter was spectacular in any of the rounds. Trout landed more of the telling punches. Rodriguez was able to get in some shots during the action. They never exchanged until the final minute of the twelfth and final round, when both boxers decided to let their hands go.
Trout is a frontrunner candidate to face WBC champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Styles make fights, a fight between two counter-punchers is not supposed to look good. Trout is more deserving than Kirkland who got schooled by Molina in an even worse fight. Do I wanna see it? No I'd rather see Canelo/Lara…Comment by ksan on 06-03-2012
