Austin Trout Plans To Drop Down To 147, Targets Danny Garcia

By Ryan Burton

EDINBURGH, TEXAS - Former super welterweight champion Austin "No Doubt Trout" servied as the FS1 expert analyst for the Premier Boxing Champions on FS1 card that aired Saturday night.  In the main event, Brandon Figueroa crushed Javier Nicolas Chacon in 4 rounds.

Trout was last in action in May when he battled Terrell Gashau to a disputed split draw. He said that he doesn't have any issues facing Gashau again but revealed that he has bigger plans on the horizon.

“I’m looking for something else. I’m even looking to try to come to 47 and shake sh*t up," Trout told

Traditionally boxers look to move up as they age but the 33-year-old Trout says that he is more than up for the challenge over moving down 7 pounds.  He credits a new diet for his inspiration in moving down a weight class.

"I sure can (do it). I make 154 easy and it’s been easier since I changed my diet. With just a little more discipline I am sure I can make it and be strong,” Trout explained.

As for who he would like to fight in his new weight division, he said that he is open to anyone.  When asked for a specific name sans the obvious Manny Pacquiao, Trout said, "give me Danny Garcia. Give me Danny. I’ll take (Adrien) Broner. I will take them all. Keith Thurman. Danny Garcia would be easy work for me or Shawn Porter - I will take the winner or loser (in his fight versus Errol Spence)."
