Austin Trout victory

Las Cruces junior middleweight prospect Austin Trout was very impressive in beating Byron Tyson on Wednesday night in Houston on ESPN2. Trout won an eight-round decision by scores of 80-72 x3.

It was Trout's biggest fight to date and he did a great job of controlling the pace of the fight and keeping Tyson at bay. He was moving well defensively, he landed his straight left with consistency and he was strong to the body at times. The eight rounds were the longest the 15-0 Trout had gone in his career.

I talked to Trout today and he hopes to get back into the ring soon. He hopes to meet with Golden Boy Promotions about possible work in the future. Golden Boy Pomotions is run by Oscar De La Hoya.
