Trout's Trainer Feels Canelo's Style Matches Up Well

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Louie Burke, the trainer of WBA "regular" junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14KOs), is very proud of his boxer. This past Saturday  night at New York's Madison Square Garden, Trout won a twelve round unanimous decision over Puerto Rican superstar Miguel Cotto.

Trout won with scores of 119-109, 117-111, 117-111. Some felt the fight was closer, although nobody disputed the actual winner. Even Trout's trainer felt the fight was a little bit closer.

"I felt the last four rounds we had in the bag. In the middle rounds, like you said, I thought were a little close. [Cotto] had some good flurries there where he swayed the rounds," Burke said.

Cotto was being lined up to fight WBC king Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (40-0-1, 32KOs) on May 4th. Now Trout wants the fight and Burke expects the Mexican star's style to work very well for them.

"Austin has been fed on the Mexican style of fighters, where we're from, and we've has always done better against the type of style. There is no doubt in my mind that it would be a good fight for us...we're looking forward to it," Burke told BoxingScene.com.

Austin Trout got his name out there with the Cotto win but he still needs to continue building momentum if he wants to get another superstar in the ring. He got lucky he landed the Cotto fight. He has to…
