Canelo Alvarez Vs. Austin Trout: Where Is All The Hype?

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 04/02/13 11:04AM EDT

We are just weeks away from one of the most intriguing boxing matchups in years. On April 20, the perceived future of boxing, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez will face the toughest test of his career when he takes on Austin "No Doubt" Trout in a junior middleweight title unification bout. The fight, which will take place at the Alamadome in San Antonio, Texas, has already sold thousands of tickets. Yet, both fighters are staying quiet instead of hyping the fight.

Usually in a fight of this magnitude, at least one fighter tries to talk a lot of smack in-order to hype the fight. In the case of Canelo Alvarez vs. Austin Trout, neither fighter has to say a single word. Anybody who knows anything about boxing and/or either of these fighters knows that this is a fight they will not want to miss.

Simply put, this is a fight that sells itself.

Canelo Alvarez is arguably the most popular boxer in the world following Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The red-headed Mexican has an impeccable boxing record of 41 wins and zero losses. He has 30 wins coming by way of knockout. In his past four fights, Canelo has blown out Alfonso Gomez, Kermit Cintron, Shane Mosely and Josesito Lopez.

Austin Trout is also an undefeated fighter with an overall record of 26 wins with 14 victories coming by way of knockout. Even though Trout does not have as many professional fights as Canelo, he does have a very impressive unanimous decision victory over Miguel Cotto. Cotto is arguably much better than any opponent that Canelo has faced up to this point.

Needless to say, neither fighter has to say anything leading up to April 20. This fight featured two undefeated fighters going toe-to-toe in the primes of their careers. That's something we rarely see in today's boxing world. If you were only going to watch one boxing match this year, Canelo vs. Trout would be the one you would want to see.
