Almost a month after His world title win and a whole lot of local excitement, Austin has been back in training for two weeks, and this last week he’s been in camp with World Middleweight champ, Sergio Martinez, getting him ready for his title defense against Serhiy Dzinzuiruk. While in the Los Angeles area, Austin will be attending the 154 WBC World Title fight between Canelo Alvarez/ Mathew Hatten. If Canelo wins, Austin, will call him out, giving Canelo an opportunity to restore the family honor against Austin who beat his older brother, Rigoberto for the WBA Title. After Austins win over his Rigoberto, Canelo called Austin out. Now, we can see just how serious he was.
In the meantime, Abie Han has been working out religiously, preparing for his March 18th fight in Tijuana, Mexico, promoted by Abie’s promoters, Top Rank. His opponent is TBA within the next couple of days. Instead of fluctuating from 154 to 165, Abie plans on campaigning at the 160 lb weight. He says, “ He just feels stronger at that weight”
Before leaving to California, Austin was giving Abie some work in the gym as is Tim Meek who himself has been preparing for a fight at the Las Cruces PAL on March 12 and for the upcoming New Mexico Golden Gloves and Men’s USA’s.
