Trout Says Canelo Won't Enjoy Weight Edge This Time

By Rene Umanzor & Lazarus Montano

WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14KOs) says WBC king, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0, 30KOs), will not enjoy his usual size and weight advantage on April 20th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Trout feels Canelo has faced plenty of opponents where he held an obvious advantage in size and weight. This time Trout believes Canelo is the smaller fighter and he plans to impose his strength and abilities on the Mexican star.

"This is definitely my biggest fight. This is a unification fight, I'm going for my second world championship. It can not get any bigger than this, fighting another undefeated fighter who is also a superstar. I just want to show the world that I'm better. I feel he has had a weight advantage with a lot of boxers that he's fought, so I'm going to put him in an uncomfortable place to see how he deals with that," Trout said.

"I do not care if I'm the one who comes in as the underdog, I do not care, and anyway I'll fight at my best and I'll give the fans a good fight. It's not about what people think, it's about what I know. It will be a war. Saul is a hungry fighter and strong, like me, and we both have the attitude of not wanting to lose our undefeated records or our belts in the ring. I will leave everything in the ring and I'm sure he's going to do the same, and if he does I'm going to take his belt."

(Part II) Let's not forget about Dulorme. That motherf*cker was a disappointment last year too. Lou Dibelle f*cked him by throwing him in with the Wolves (a.k.a. Agregu) too soon in his career. The guy has amazing skills and potential,…

[QUOTE=Tobi.G;13146651]Bull****. Cotto is not in his prime anymore but hes not shot. Still a verry capable fighter. Trout is a verry good boxer. He should not trade or go toe to toe with canelo. He has good legs and skills,…

[QUOTE=marvin douglas;13143958]I think Trout will not be able to keep Canelo off of him. Who has Trout beat that was any good. And don't say Cotto because Cotto is shot.[/QUOTE] Bull****. Cotto is not in his prime anymore but hes…
