K9 Bundrage: No Interest in Fighting Austin Trout

By Ryan Burton

IBF junior middleweight champion Cornelius "K9" Bundrage has advised that he is not interested in facing WBA "regular" champion Austin Trout. Recent reports have said that a Bundrage-Trout unification fight may land on the
Randall Bailey versus Devon Alexander card that is being held in San Antonio on September 8th. 

"Let my fans know that that's a false advertisement.  I want the real WBA champ Floyd Mayweather, not the other guy. If not Floyd then I want (Miguel) Cotto or Pac Man since Canelo is scared of Me!" Bundrage stated.

The former Contender series participant last fought on June 30th when he knocked out Cory Spinks in their rematch. Bundrage said that he is looking to return later this year.

"I'm on vacation from boxing until later in the year.  I had a long training camp for Spinks.  I can get up for Canelo but not Trout," Bundrage told

Bundrage is looking like a b*tch right about now.

Does Buns have any interest in fight anybody of note? Does he plan on fighting Sechew Powel and Cory Spinks for the rest of his career :lol1:

Waiting by the sidelines again I see, somebody must've put a muzzle on him cuz he hasn't said anything in a while. Hopefully the IBF orders K9 to fight the winner of Rosado/Whittaker ASAP.

*sigh* Poor Cornelius. Trout just got a fight with one of boxing's biggest names, while K9 is doing what exactly? K9 stay losing
