Austin Dwayne Trout, (born September 18, 1985) is an American professional boxer who fights out of Las Cruces, New Mexico.[1] He is a graduate of Mayfield High School in Las Cruces, New Mexico.[2]

Amateur career[edit]

In 2004, Austin was the U.S. National Amateur Welterweight Champion.[3]

Austin was the runner-up to make the 2004 U.S. Olympic Boxing Team. He would finish his amateur career with a final record of 163–42–1.

Professional career[edit]

In November 2009, he beat Taronze Washington to win the vacant WBC Continental Americas Light Middleweight title.[4]

Light Middleweight[edit]

Light Middleweight title[edit]

On 5 February 2011, Trout won the WBA World Light Middleweight Championship bout with a unanimous decision against Interim champion Rigoberto Álvarez in his foe's hometown of Guadalajara, Mexico.[5][6]

His first defense of his newly awarded title was a win against mandatory challenger David Alonso López on June 11.[7][8]

On 11 November 2011, Trout stopped Australian Frank LoPorto. Trout's next fight was against Ring Top 10 Light Middleweight, Delvin Rodriguez. Trout dominated the fight, going on to win a one sided unanimous decision.

Trout vs. Cotto[edit]

He then defended his WBA Light Middleweight Championship against former three division champion and No. 2 ranked Light Middleweight, Miguel Cotto, on December 1, 2012, in New York City. Trout started the fight off fast, using his quick combinations to continually get his punches off first against Cotto. Trout also used his superior footwork to evade most of Cotto's punches, and was able to out muscle Cotto off the ropes when he was cornered in the fight. During the middle rounds, Cotto found success trapping Trout on the ropes and keeping him there, ripping Trout with body shots and finding the range with his left hook. Trout regained control in the later rounds, even backing Cotto up later in the fight, and stunned Cotto several times down the stretch with his straight left hand. Trout won the fight by a wide unanimous decision, giving him the biggest win of his career thus far. After the fight, Trout called out fellow Light Middleweight champion Saúl Álvarez.

Trout vs. Álvarez[edit]

Austin Trout faced Saul Alvarez who was also undefeated as a professional. The bout went the full distance and Alvarez came out victorious in a close competitive fight. All three judges scorecards were in favor of Alvarez but many thought the bout was much closer than the scorecards indicated. Trout was knocked down for the first time in his career in the 7th round.
