Trout vs LoPorto Card Coming Together For November 11

On November 11, Greg Cohen Promotions and Gary Shaw Productions, in association with Zeferino Promotions, will proudly present the homecoming of undefeated WBA Junior Middleweight Champion Austin "No Doubt" Trout.
Trout (23-0, 13 KOs) will defend his belt against Australia's WBA #14 contender Frank LoPorto (15-4-2, 7 KOs) at Cohen Stadium in El Paso, Texas. The bout will also be Trout's first premium cable television appearance, as it will be broadcast live on Showtime network's SHOBOX: The New Generation.
Trout's promoter, Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions, says local boxing fans should be at Cohen Stadium on fight night, and boxing fans across the country should be watching on Showtime.
"We are thrilled to be working with GSP on this event and November 11 will be a great night. The people in the El Paso area can see their hometown boy made good and the world can finally get a look at the true superstar of the junior middleweight division. Austin has waited a long time to get his USA premium cable debut and he fully intends in making the most of this opportunity in front of the US boxing public and the executives at Showtime."
26-year-old southpaw Trout won his title in Mexico last February by unanimous decision over Rigoberto Alvarez, brother of WBC Champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and successfully defended it in June, again in Mexico, via 12-round decision over the formidable David "Destroyer" Lopez.
He was born in El Paso and resides in Las Cruces, New Mexico, about 40 miles away.
"We're expecting a packed house that night," continued Cohen. "Austin enjoys celebrity status in his hometown and the people of the community will rally behind him in big numbers. Everyone is very excited about Austin finally bringing his championship back to home soil."
The night's televised co-features will pit Colombian knockout artist Milton Nunez (23-3-1, 21 KOs) against power punching Michael "The Brazilian Rocky" Oliveira (15-0, 12 KOs) in a 10-round middleweight battle that has wild shootout written all over it, as well as the return of Puerto Rican knockout puncher Jonathan "Mantequiilla" Gonzalez (14-0, 13 KOs) to face Philadelphia, Pennsylvania"s "King" Gabriel Rosado (18-5, 10 KOs) in a 10-round junior middleweight showdown.
The exciting undercard will be announced soon.
