WBC light middleweight titleholder Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will batter WBA super world light middleweight champion “No Doubt” Austin Trout in their unification bout on Saturday night at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
The 22-year-old Alvarez (41-0-1, 30 KOs), who began boxing professionally at the ludicrous age of 15, last exited the squared circle in September with a fifth-round TKO triumph over interim WBC welterweight titlist Josésito López.
Comparatively, the 27-year-old Trout most recently impressed by unanimously outscoring Miguel Cotto on Dec. 1 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
A southpaw who is a native of Las Cruces, N.M., Trout easily outperformed “Canelo’s” 35-year-old brother, Rigoberto, to capture his crown in February 2011.
Trout is a defensive wizard with a prolific jab and advanced ring smarts.
Unfortunately for the New Mexican with feathery fists, Alvarez is a powerhouse steamrolling toward greatness.
A fierce redhead and thunderous slugger, Saul Alvarez will floor Austin Trout and emerge victorious within 10 rounds this weekend in the “River City.”
