Austin Trout Beats Byron "Buddy" Tyson

"No Doubt" about it, Austin "No Doubt" Trout (15-0, 11 KOs) pitched a shutout. Trout, of Las Cruces, New Mexico, won virtually every round in his eight rounder with Californian Byron "Buddy" Tyson (9-1-2, 4 KOs) tonight at the Grand Plaza Hotel in Houston, Texas. Austin, a southpaw, and an accurate puncher, was a much quicker boxer than Tyson. Trout took command from the onset, stuck with his game plan and counter punched his way to a well earned victory. He remained composed throughout the fight. With the exception of a low blow and a right hand or two Tyson never really got off.

This was Trout's first exposure on a national level, with the fight being broadcast on ESPN2. He, and trainer Louie Burke made the most of it. Trout a junior middleweight is in a talent rich division, which includes the welterweights just below and the middleweights directly above. He has a lot of potential. The future looks bright for Austin Trout.
