Team Trout Target 154 Unification With "K9' Bundrage
By Rick Reeno
Greg Cohen, promoter for WBA "regular" junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (25-0, 14KOs), advised BoxingScene.com that he's trying to secure a unification with IBF king Cornelius "K9" Bundrage (32-4, 19KOs), who recently became a promotional and a managerial free agent.

Deep inside K9 knows he's the weakest champ of the bunch. He won't beat Trout (or the other champs for that matter). He will come up with the excuse that Trout isn't a big name and he wants to fight…Post a Comment - View More User Comments (18)
