Trout Eyes Mayweather, Top Middleweights After Canelo

By Luis Sandoval

Despite the outcome on April 20th when Austin Trout takes on Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, Trout will have fought the two biggest names currently in his division as he also defeated Puerto Rican superstarMiguel Cotto late last year.

Trout is 110% focused on Canelo but when he was on the most recent edition of BoxingScene Radio, he was asked what fights he would pursue if he was victorious considering he would’ve already faced the two biggest names at Junior Middleweight.

“You know there's still plenty of names in the 154 pound division. There's a lot of name, it’s a stacked division. And if not 154, we got the middleweights right there that have a bunch of names. [Sergio] Maravilla [Martinez], [Gennady] GGG [Golvokin], and even [Matthew] Macklin and [Martin] Murray and all these guys. I don't think there's a shortage of people to fight” said Trout.

One opponent Trout would also pursue is the same one his opponent has his eyes set on and that’s pound for pound king Floyd “Money” Mayweather. While most speculate a fight with Alvarez and Mayweather is most likely to happen if both are victorious, Trout says he wouldn’t mind following that same road if he beats Alvarez.

“You know it'd be nice. When we get to that road we'll definitely figure out which way we're going. But I want to be the best. The pound for pound best and who does everybody consider to be the pound for pound best fight now? (Floyd Mayweather) Well then that's where we need to go and get that done as well” Trout would tell BoxingScene Radio.

Even though Trout would love to take on one of the best fighters of this generation in Mayweather, he isn’t over looking Canelo as he understands this is an important fight and nothing can happen if he doesn’t win.

“But you know nothing is going to happen if I don't get passed Saul so we'll cross that bridge when we get there. Like I said, there are plenty of names. We don't want to wait [as Floyd] only fights once a year. I'm trying to fight more than that. I'm down to fight [Sergio] "Maravilla" [Martinez] who is also on that pound for pound list. I'm down to fight anybody who claims to be the best just to have my own stake as the pound for pound” informed Trout.

Assuming Trout gets past Canelo, I see the new excuse is that because Trout eyes an eventual move up to 160 (doesn't say when, in fact he talks about other 154lbers) that Floyd shouldn't fight him. Is this the trend…

Floyd isn't gonna fight Trout... he saw the Donaire/Rigondo fight didn't he? Counterpuncher vs Counterpuncher is a horrible match up.
