Lara vs. Trout To Have "Regular" WBA Title at Stake

By Elisinio Castillo

The World Boxing Association has ruled that Erislandy Lara (18-1-2, 12KOs) vs. Austin Trout (26-1, 14KOs) will have the WBA's "regular" junior middleweight title at stake. Lara-Trout takes place on December 7th in a Showtime televsied clash from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The previous "regular" champion, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, fought the WBA's "super" champion at 154 - Floyd Mayweather Jr. - on September 14th and lost a twelve round majority decision at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather will remain as the "super" champion at 154, according to the WBA.

Lara captured the WBA's interim title in August with a tenth round stoppage of Alfredo Angulo. Trout previously held the WBA's "regular" title but lost the belt in April after dropping a twelve round decision to Canelo before 40,000 fans in San Antonio.

[QUOTE=techliam;13861634]Where'd you hear this from? This is certainly not the case. In most divisions, there aren't regular/super champs, just the normal WBA champion. Where there are regular/super titles, the Super belt is pretty much the champ for the WBA. The…

Gotta love these bogus title belts're either the "regular", "super", "interim", "half-assed", "runner up", "not this time" champion of the world...and that's just for one belt. How many titles do we have? WBC, WBA, WBO, IBF, etc...smh
