By Miguel Rivera

WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14KOs) doubts the story of WBC king Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs), who claims he wanted to face Trout in order get revenge for his older brother Rigoberto Alvarez, who Trout decisioned two years ago in Guadalajara for the WBA title. Canelo faces Trout on April 20 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Trout questions Canelo's story.

"I beat his brother two years ago and now it’s so important? I’m not buying it. If Canelo was fighting me for revenge, then why wouldn’t he fight the other guys who beat his brother? I’m not the only one," trout said.
