Listen To the Fans for a Change – Give Us Alvarez vs. Trout

Listen To the Fans for a Change Give Us Alvarez vs. Trou

I would never disrespect a boxer, amateur or professional. I know firsthand the hours of training that are spent in and out of the Boxing Club, the pain one goes through just to wake up and do it all over again. Then you climb the latter to get the opportunity to turn professional. Much more is demanded of you, everyone wants a piece of you the higher you climb the latter in the professional rankings. Managers, promoters, governing bodies, media, fans, and worst of the entire thing is hanger on so called friends that just want to drag you down. And then you still need to train, your driven into isolation to train away hopefully from all the distractions. Over the last year I’ve spent a lot of time learning about the world of Professional Boxing, because I never made it there. Most of these athletes go through a tremendous amount of pressure, but to give them the praise they deserve!

On September 15th, 2012 Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has an open date to defend his WBC light middleweight title. Boxing fans love to watch a unification bout; it captures the interest of the boxing fan to see which champion will be left standing at the end of the bout holding 2 title belts! It so happens the current WBA light middleweight title holder Austin “No Doubt” Trout is free that night. Austin Trout won his title on February 5th, 2011 by defeating Rigoberto Alvarez in a convincing 12 round Unanimous Decision, all 3 judges scored the bout 119-108. If the name Rigoberto Alvarez sounds familiar it should he’s the brother of Saul Alvarez! At the time Saul Alvarez publicly stated he would seek a match with Trout to avenge his brother’s loss. In modern boxing history unification title bouts have drawn huge crowds and attracted a large return of revenue with PPV viewers.

Recently I caught up with Austin Trout yesterday and asked him some quick questions, as he always has time for me even when pressed for time, in regards to the open date on September 15th. And how he felt about being overlooked to match-up against Saul Alvarez, here’s what Mr. Trout had to say;

R.A.M: (; You’re currently hold the WBA light middleweight title, and have a perfect record of 25 (KO 14) -0 -0.In your mind why should you not get the bout against Saul Alvarez.

A.T: In the warriors mind I see no reason for me not getting the Alvarez fight. In a business sense I feel they know I can beat Canelo, and don’t want to tarnish his marvelous record.

R.A.M: (; The Boxing world would love to see the WBA and WBC light middleweight titles unified. Do you think Alvarez wants a lesser opponent, then a current title holder with a 25 (KO 14) -0 -0.

A.T: Yes!!! Without a doubt

R.A.M: (; Would you be willing to go to Mexico to fight Alvarez, or would you want to see the fight in Vegas at a big venue like the MGM Grand.

A.T: I would love to see the fight in Vegas, but I’m almost willing to go back to Mexico to make that opportunity happen… of course the price goes up if that were the case!

R.A.M: (; It seems in the mind of the public Saul Alvarez is a star, while in the mean time Austin Trout has been disrespected as a major title holder, WBA light middleweight title.

A.T: I guess the people need me to pay more dues before giving me the respect I feel I deserve. Which is understandable, I need to fight a name and get my name out there.  At the same time people don’t realize I haven’t had anything given to me, I’ve been on the back burner of everyone’s list and had to take the scraps given to me. So I’m here by Gods graces and hard work! I believe I am where I am supposed to be.

Those were some very powerful and truthful words from a champion who has defended his title 3 times to date. Austin Trout has climbed the latter the hard way, never turning down a fight! He’s held other titles throughout his career;

The WBA Continental Americas light middleweight title, won in Mexico against Martin Aliva

The WBA Fedelatin light middleweight title, won in Panama against Nilson Julio Tapia

The WBC Continental Americas light middleweight title, won in the United States against Taronze Washington.

To Austin “No Doubt” Trout’s credit when he won the vacant WBA World light middleweight title against Rigoberto Alvarez you guessed right, it was at the Arena Coliseo, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico!

If anyone in professional boxing deserves to fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 15th, 2012 against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez its Austin Trout. He’s even came out publically and stated he’d participate in VADA testing, as did Saul Alvarez did for his last bout against Shane Mosley on May 5th, 2012. Alvarez had a convincing 12 round Unanimous Decision win that night. Both Alvarez and Trout are highly skilled at their craft. Let these two great boxers settle who is the “Super Champion” of the light middleweight division.
