Austin Trout and big time sparring

It appears that unbeaten Las Cruces junior middleweight Austin Trout will head to Big Bear, Calif., later this month to train with welterweight Shane Mosley to help Mosley get ready for his May 31 fight with Zab Judah.

Mosley is one of the sport's best fighters and has taken on some of the biggest names in the sport. He lost a close decision to unbeaten Miguel Cotto last November.

Trout is 13-0 in his career and is scheduled to fight sometime in April.

Also, El Paso super bantamweight Antonio Escalante, who is 17-2-1, could fight in mid-May on a Telefutura-televised card. One of the opponents being mentioned is 32-7-3 Gerson Guerrero.
