Austin Trout Ready For The Challenge of Anthony Mundine

By Chris LaBate

Austin Trout (24-0, 14KOs), the WBA's "regular" junior middleweight champion, is looking to defend his belt against the mandatory challenger - interim beltholder Anthony Mundine (43-4, 25KOs) of Australia. Mundine is looking to become a star in America and recently visited the offices of Top Rank, looking to get a promotional deal in place. He even enlisted the help of trainer Jeff Fenech

There were discussions in 2011. The deal fell apart. A lot of blame was thrown around by both sides. Trout has no problem traveling to Australia to face Mundine.

"All Mundine has to do is accept. I'm ready for my mandatory," Trout said.

During a recent with Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, on BoxingScene.com, Mundine was mentioned as a potential foe for WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., who faces Marco Antonio Rubio next month.

"If we can't do Cotto, we could do Antonio Margarito. That's a possibility. There is also Mundine, who brings a lot to the table with the Australian TV," Arum said.

Trout is good but I'm not sure how good. He hasn't fought any top guys at 154, he has to step up the comp this year if he wants to be taken seriously. There are some good fights to be…
