From the Auditorio Miguel Barragan, San Luis Potosi, Mexico:
Austin Trout 153.78 vs. David Lopez 153
(WBA super welterweight world title )
By Louie Burke
The Weigh-ins went off without a hitch, Austin made weight easily, just maintaining what he already accomplished the night before by making 154 lbs. David "The Destroyer" Lopez, surprisingly came in at 153 lbs. Weigh-ins, medicals and paper work were done within an hour, a quick and painless procedure, most American commissions could learn from.
Lopez is a tough, rangy boxer/puncher that has a wealth of experience, not only the number of fights he’s had ( 62), but also the quality. A win over Lopez is going to be a huge step in gaining the legitimacy towards a super title bout or a unification bout against better known names in the division.
Austin feels great and wants his supporters to know, that this fight is for YOU!!!!
Thank you for your support!
