After three rounds of action last Friday night in California, the smell of an upset was in the air. Daniel Dawson (40-4-1, 26KOs) of Australia had dropped former champion Austin Trout (27-2), twice, and seemed to be on his way to an upset win. But then Trout started fighting back strong, and Dawson badly injured his calf muscle in the fifth round. He initially tore it in the fifth round and from that point forward he was a one-legged fighter. Trout scored his own knockdown in the eight and piled up the points to win a ten round unanimous decision. Dawson has vowed to come back stronger in the next fight.
