Trout vs Mundine Showdown in Play For 2012 on HBO

By Mike Coppinger

BoxingScene.com has been advised that a junior middleweight clash between unbeaten Austin Trout and Aussie Anthony Mundine is in play for early next year, with HBO televising.

Trout will first make his American television debut on the November 11th edition of ShoBox, against Japanese southpaw Yuki Nonaka. If he is impressive in his network debut, all roads point to a meeting with Mundine (42-4, 25 KOs) on HBO.

"This is very premature, but we're also having talks with HBO about a January fight with none other than the big mouth Anthony Mundine," Trout told BoxingScene.com. "They want me to be on the bill in January, they're trying to bring Mundine [to the U.S.]."

Mundine would first have to get past Rigoberto Alvarez, brother of Saul, in an Oct. 19th bout in Australia for the WBA interim title. Trout is currently the WBA's regular champion.

[QUOTE=DoktorSleepless;11280889]Why is everybody ducking Lara? It's total BS. He should have an opponent by now.[/QUOTE] Timing is everything, he was impressive and isn't forgotten. I can see Lara/K9 next year if Golden Boy can out bid King to avoid options…

Won't happen. Mundine will claim he is the only one with something to lose and pull out last minute like he did with the Golovkin fight. Mundine is only prepared to use these names to promote his mismatches and endless…
