Promoter Dons Austin Trout Boxing’s Newest Star, Wants Mayweather, Pacquiao, or Canelo Next


Promoter Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions sends his warmest congratulations to his fighter, WBA Super Welterweight World Champion and boxing’s newest superstar, Austin “No Doubt” Trout (26-0, 14 KOs).


With the world watching last Saturday night, Trout scored a mostly one-sided unanimous (117-111, 117-111 and 119-109) decision over multiple world champion Miguel Cotto at Madison Square Garden.


Cohen says he’s still on cloud nine. “Austin is a very special kid. To perform under those circumstances the way he did in front of 15,000 people who wanted him to lose. For him to block it out and rise to the occasion the way he did was a beautiful thing to be apart of.”


Cohen says it was a mix of factors that led him to put such stock and belief in a then-unknown fighter years ago when the pair began working together.


“I loved the way he boxed and I’ve always been a fan of how cool he is. He’s such an unflappable kid. His first defense was against David Lopez in Mexico and they tried to pull a fast one by using a very, very small ring. I told Austin I’d cancel the fight if he wanted and Austin’s reaction was ‘cancel the fight? A smaller ring means less room for him to run from me.’ That’s the attitude he has. I’ve always known he was special and now the world is going to jump on the bandwagon. To see Austin develop the way he did and win the world title and now to not only be a title holder but become a star. It’s a wonderful feeling and I’m so proud to be a part of it.”


Cohen says Team Trout’s next move isn’t determined yet, but knows for sure it’ll be lucrative for his man.


“We want to fight the biggest and the best. Floyd Mayweather Jr., Canelo Alvarez, Manny Pacquiao. There are plenty of fights in the division that Austin can make a lot of money and that television would be happy to put on. No matter what we end up doing, things will be good for Team Trout from here on in. it’s a very nice position to be in.”
