Austin Trout: ‘If You Have a Belt, I Want That Belt’


    download (1)It has been a tough road for the past couple of years for Austin “No Doubt” Trout.

    After consecutive defeats to both Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara, Trout (27-2, 14 KO) found himself in a very peculiar situation, fighting on ESPN Friday Night Fights instead of pay-per-view.

    In a fight that was supposed to showcase a Trout that was still a force at 154 pounds, Trout found himself picking himself off the canvas again and leaving more questions than answers about his boxing future against lightly-regarded Daniel Dawson (40-4-1, 26 KO).

    Although Trout overcame the early calamity, Trout was unimpressive in a unanimous decision victory.

    There is a new fighter appearing on the horizon that wants a shot at Trout. Julian “J Rock Williams is fresh off a unanimous decision victory against Eliezer Gonzalez.

    There is one problem, however. Trout was unaware of Williams’s taunting.

    “He constantly taunts me,” questioned Trout? “I did not even know. No one is scared of Julian Williams,” he added.

    As far as champions are concerned, Austin Trout wants to fight all of the top fighters.

    “If you have a belt, I want that belt,” stated Trout. “My goal is to be undisputed.”

    If Trout wins his upcoming bout against the lightly-regarded Luis Grajeda (17-3, 13 KO), the former WBA Light Middleweight Champion would be interested in fighting fight Floyd Mayweather, Cornelius Bundrage, or a rematch with Erislandy Lara next.
