Austin Trout Planning To Attack Lopez in Round One

By Miguel Rivera

Promoter Hector Garcia has everything in place for the big show on June 11, where the "regular" junior middleweight champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA), Austin "No Doubt" Trout will defend his title against the heavy-handed David "Destroyer" Lopez.  

Trout a left-handed 25-year-old boxer with an unbeaten record of 22 wins, 13 of them by knockout, wants to make Lopez his sixth victim of Mexican origin. Trout has beaten  Justo Almazan (2005), Julio Perez and Erik Esquivel (2007), Martin "Azteca" Avila (2009), and Canelo's older brother Rigoberto Álvarez.

Lopez (40-12-0, 23 KO's) has more knockouts than Austin has professional fights. The champion will attack early, but he respects the power of Lopez's punches.

"He is very tall and strong, has a very accurate straight right, attacks with body shots, but I also hit to the body. I think he has a good chin. I will box and attack from the start. I'm faster and smarter, and you have to realize that I am just as strong as him," Trout said.
