Trout: Lara Won't Get Decision, Needs To Down Canelo

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former champion Austin Trout is tabbing WBC 'regular' junior middleweight beltholder Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12KOs) to outbox Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (43-1-1, 31KOs) on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Trout lost a close twelve round unanimous decision to Canelo in April 2013, but then  lost a lopsided twelve round decision to Lara beat in December of 2013.

While Trout feels Lara will get the upper hand in the contest, he doesn't expect him to get a decision unless he scores a stoppage victory and he doesn't believe Lara is capable of ending the fight early.

"I feel that Lara will out box him, but Canelo will take it," Trout told The Las Cruces Sun-News. "I don't see Lara getting a decision unless he puts [Alvarez] down and I don't think he can do that."

Trout expects a great fight and says the two boxers match up very well with each other.

"Their strengths are perfect for each other and those are the fights that make for great fights," Trout said. "Canelo has to throw combinations, which he is good at but he has to stay busy and throw more punches than he normally does. Lara can also throw combinations, but he has to utilize his footwork to get in position."

Duh. Do you think a judge is going to score to fight the for you when run all night, fight off your back foot, and have very little punch output? Lara should've boxed circles around Canelo for about 6 rounds…

[QUOTE=Bigg Rigg;14754839]Knew the shaky decision was coming days ago and even told a poster that the crowd will go nuts if they give it to Canelo[/QUOTE] Trout's words turned out to be prophetic, huh?

[QUOTE=Evol;14736071]my point is that if he dominates canelo and make it obvious, theres no way he can get robbed on the score cards. now if its a close fight then yes he will not get the nod. but 8-4 to…
