Trout Has a Feeling That He Will Knock Canelo Out

By Ryan Burton

San Antonio, Texas- WBA junior middleweight champion Austin "No Doubt" Trout (26-0) is just a day away from the biggest fight of his career.  Tomorrow he faces WBC champion Canelo Alvarez at the Alamodome in a unification fight televised by Showtime.  The New Mexico native insists that the bright lights and the 38,000 plus fans in attendance won't distract him.

"I was born for this.  I like the attention.  My personality is perfect for it," Trout explained.

The 27-year-old knows that it could be tough to get a decision in Texas so he wants to dominate the fight from start to finish.  At the same time he said that he respects Alvarez as a fighter and won't take him lightly.

"I want to beat him, beat the hell out of him so that I don't leave any doubt that I won.  He is an explosive brawler but he has some skills though.  He is not just a head first get hit and hit type of fighter," Trout explained.

I mentioned to Trout that Alvarez tends to fight in spurts and asked if they were concerned that Alvarez might steal rounds by throwing flurries towards the end of the rounds.  He said that they have picked that up and noticed Canelo has a tendency to fade late in fights.

"That is one thing we looked at.  He does tend to get tired throughout the second half of the fight.  I haven't seen anyone really push him.  We are going to box but we are going to apply pressure throughout the fight," Trout revealed.

Trout has been campaigning for this fight the past couple of years and is very grateful for getting the opportunity to fight Miguel Cotto this past December and now face Alvarez. He feels that Golden Boy never wanted this fight for Canelo but that it is all part of a greater plan.  He fiinshed our interview by saying that Alvarez's chin will determine if this fight goes the distance and that the fans can expect an exciting fight.

"God is good.  This is all part of the plan and I think that God has sent this path.  You can't mess with destiny.  I don't think they wanted an African American fighter from Las Cruces, New Mexico to be here on this stage.  I want to thank the fans because I think the fans made him put his foot down to make this fight happen.

"I have a feeling this won't go the distance but that is up to him.  If he can take it for 12 rounds we go to decision.  If he can't then he's falling sooner.  You can expect fireworks," said Trout.

Trout is Kocky which has to be respected but I feel he is underestimating Canelo to a very large degree and will be getting it handed to him tonight because of his mentality. He will say that Canelo is much…
