Austin Trout plans ‘proper changes’ ahead of spring return

Phil Jay 24/01/2014

Former world light-middleweight champion Austin Trout is ready to makes his comeback to the ring following a disastrous 2013 in which the American dropped his WBA title and suffered back-to-back defeats.

The 28 year-old, who raised eyebrows when handily defeating Miguel Cotto in December 2012, has dusted himself down after losing to Saul Alvarez and Erislandy Lara and plans to return refreshed in the coming months.

“I have been given no dates as yet, but would like to fight in March or April if that is possible,” Trout told World Boxing News.

“I will be coming back to 154 and I am currently in the process of making changes to insure my 2014 is a lot better than my 2013.”

With his previously perfect record now standing at 26-2, Trout is plotting a route back to facing his former opponents in the hope of rectifying those blemishes. ‘No Doubt’ is intent on regaining the belt he held with pride between 2011 and 2012 after making four successful defences.

“Redemption is most definitely something I want once I get back winning. I’ll be watching Canelo’s fight with Angulo in March and I think it should be a good fight – however long it lasts!”
