Trout: Jermall and Hurd Were Huge, Jermell Charlo More My Size

By Ryan Burton

It has been over 5 years since Austin Trout (31-4) last held a world title. He lost his title in April, 2013 in a unification bout against Canelo Alvarez.

The New Mexico native has had plenty of chances to regain titles in the super welterweight division, facing the likes of Jermall Charlo, Erislandy Lara and most recently Jarrett Hurd.

He will have another chance on June 9th when he faces WBC champion Jermell Charlo at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The fight will serve as the co-feature bout of the evening in chief support of the Leo Santa Cruz-Abner Mares rematch. Both fights will be televised by Showtime.

"I want to thank Al Haymon. He keeps giving me the opportunities to shine. I am not going to let this opportunity slip through my hands. I don't say no. I am always saying yes and I will always fight the best if they are willing to fight me," said Trout.

The 32-year-old is very confident despite coming up short in his most recent title challenges. His last two title fights were against Hurd who is huge for the weight class and Jermall Charlo who is now campaigning as a middleweight.

Trout feels that size wise he is much more evenly matched against Jermall.

"It is more even absolutely. Mall was huge. Hurd was huge. Mell is big but he ain't huge. It will be good to finally fight somebody my size. I am going to beat Charlo and become a two-time world champion. Just watch," Trout told

As for any comparisons between twin brothers Jermell and Jermall, Trout said that it was a good experience to go the distance with Jermall but that both fighters have their own individual styles.

"It helps but again they aren't the same person. Mall is bigger and Mell is a little bit faster. We are definitely preparing specifically for Mell - using the experience I gained fighting everybody to hone in and beat this boy," Trout explained.
