WBC, WBA and Ring Light Middleweight Titles - Saul Alvarez vs Austin Trout
|Mario Lopez aka AC Slater is in the house.|
115-113 Trout. I had this 7 rounds to 5 for Trout, but the judges didn't and it doesn't matter. It was a super close fight even if my scores don't show it. Very even match here but Trout threw more, hit more and was the more active fighter.
115-112, 116-111, 118-109 for Alvarez. The last judge must have been watching a different fight and the first two weren't a ton better, but it was close. A couple of rounds could have gone either way and I'll give up to 3, but no more. However, due to this audience, Trout was going to have a harder time.
Overall, this was a good fight. Not a classic, but good boxing and a very close match. I'd watch a rematch and I think Trout deserved a lot more points on the score cards. I can totally understand him having him lose and have no qualms about that.
