On Saturday night former champion Austin Trout and Terrell Gausha battled to a split draw in Biloxi, Mississippi. The fight headlined a Premier Boxing Champions card that was broadcasted by FS1. The scores were 99-91 for Gausha, 96-94 for Trout and 95-95.
After the fight Trout called for an immediate rematch. The demand for a rematch is debatable given the fact that the fight didn’t have a lot of action and most observers felt that Gausha deserved to get the victory.
One do those interested observers was the coach of former world title challenger Erickson Lubin. Kevin Cunningham is currently training his fighter for his June 29th Showtime televised fight against Zakaria Attou that takes place on the Jermall Charlo-Brandon Adams undercard.
While their current focus is on Attou, Cunningham made it clear that they are willing to face either Trout or Gausha next. They are especially interested in facing the former world champion Trout next.
“I thought Gausha won clearly. Gausha landed clean right hands all night and out-boxed Trout at times. I gave Trout a few close rounds but no way a draw,” Cunningham told BoxingScene.com. “We are not looking past Attou on June 29th but after that Lubin would love to send Trout into retirement since Gausha couldn’t do it!”
