Trout Confirms USADA Testing, Canelo's Rematch Demand

By Luis Sandoval

Austin “No Doubt” Trout is training hard for his upcoming mega fight with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez as both undefeated champions will meet April 20th at the Alamodome  in San Antonio, TX on Showtime. It’s a fight most didn’t think would happen but now we’re less than 2 weeks away from seeing this unification bout happen.

Trout was on the most recent episode of BoxingScene Radio as he revealed that random drug style testing was agreed upon and both fighters have already been tested by USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) who is the agency administering the tests.

“Definitely. We pushed and pushed for it and actually USADA is here right now getting all their stuff ready. But they got to wait until my interview [with you guys is] over! But yeah, I've been tested twice and this would be the third. I'm hoping they're testing him and not just destroying results like they've done before. Maybe next time we can get VADA but right now we have to take what we can get with USADA. No offense guys” a chuckling Trout would say to BoxingScene Radio as well as the USADA personnel in his presence.

Random drug testing is extremely prevalent now for big fights and this bout was no exception. Even before this fight was anywhere near to being signed, Trout had disclosed he would only fight Alvarez if both participated in random style drug testing.
While Trout made his request, Alvarez and his handlers had one of their own. Trout was asked if a rematch clause had been set in the contract.

“You know it! You know it. Of course they did. They didn't want this fight. [It’s for] when things don't go their way. That's one of the things we were worried about [with] the contract going back and forth. They wanted options and a rematch and we're like ‘come on, get out of here'. You can have the rematch, that's fine. And of course if the other way happens, say he wins -which is not going to happen- there is no rematch clause. So you know, I'm again taking the short end of the stick to get the fight that I want. Hopefully I won't be doing that too much longer” said the New Mexico native.

Trout expects a tough fight from Canelo but regardless of what he has to go through, he promises his hand will be raised when it’s all said and done.

“April 20th when we meet in the center of the ring we're having an explosive fight…for a while. Then I feel I'm going to do like I usually do and pull away. If he can take it, we can go 12 rounds. And if he can't, he's going to down. But either way my hand is going to be raised by the end of the night with that green strap around my waist along with my WBA belt. I will walk out of there a unified champion and he can go get another brother to try to avenge his loss. There's other fish to fry but you won't catch Trout” said the WBA champion.

[QUOTE=boxingfeind;13231250]Wait a minute,Canelo ask for a rematch clause just in case he loses but would not give a rematch clause to Trout.So that means if Canelo gets a gift decision, he can just move on with his career and go…
