Austin Trout Waiting on Mundine To Sign The Contract

By Phil D. Jay

WBA light-middleweight champion Austin Trout is still hoping to finalize his next title defence after revealing to WBN that potential challenger Anthony Mundine is yet to put pen to paper for their discussed August match-up. The 25 year-old made a successful first defence of his title against David Lopez last month and is hoping that his second defence will take place in the challenger’s home country of Australia.

“I’m excited to go to Australia first of all, it has been a country that I have always wanted to visit,” Trout told World Boxing News.

“I want the fight with Mundine, he is a former two-time world champion and just the name I need to possibly get me even bigger names.

“All I want is Mundine’s camp to stop playing with us and sign the contract so we can get the media involved in promoting this fight,” he added.

Mundine, 36, was thought to be keen on the title shot as he would get home advantage for the fight due to the monetary aspect of holding the bout down under. ‘The Man’ now has to decide whether to accept as Trout wanted to hold the bout in August and time is fast running out.

you'd swear it was the other way around if ya go to @The_Man_Mundine on twitter. On there he says Trout better not duck him like Cotto did. Wonder what the hold up is he's been screaming for this fight this…

If Trout keeps going to the other guy's patio to fight it's going to backfire on him soon, though I understand as he can't prob get the $$ in US as he is overseas...be careful...

I really liking Trout. The only thing that worries me is that I hope he doesn't turn into a diva when he makes it.
