Erislandy Lara was just too quick and too slick for Austin 'No Doubt' Trout. Trout tried to get to Lara body early, but he had trouble gauging him, due to the fact Lara is very cagey from a southpaw stance, which trout isn't use to fighting, even though he's a lefty as well. This was a mirror match as boxing fans treat this fight as the fight to see who will be the best 154lbs fighter in the world. Trout had some success in most of the rounds early on, but by time the round ends, Lara would take him back out of his groove. Trout was landing his right hook early as well, but stopped throwing it, or Lara took it away because lara started to come in with more sharper punches, as he dipped in then out.
In round 11, Trout was caught again by a sharp counter left by Lara, which made Trout do a split, as the toll of hard left counter took it's toll on Trout. He did rise up to finish the fight but it was clear that Erislandy Lara was the better fighter on this night. Now it's time for Canelo vs Lara, no excuses.
