The media and public is cordially invited to the media day of Las Cruces' own WBA Light Middleweight World Champion, Austin "No Doubt" Trout, on Wednesday, May 23rd at 2 p.m. at the Sammy Burke Youth Boxing Center located at 700 N. Solano in Las Cruces. This will be a great opportunity to get interviews, photos and video of Trout training for his upcoming nationally televised fight.
Trout will be defending his title belt against world ranked middleweight contender Delvin "EL Peligro" Rodriguez on Saturday, June 2nd at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. The 12-round fight between Trout and Rodriguez is part of a live quadruple header on Showtime that will feature fighters such as Antonio Tarver and Winky Wright.
The Sammy Burke Youth Boxing Center is home to the Las Cruces Police Athletic League (PAL) Boxing Club, a program that takes at-risk youth off the streets and teaches them discipline through boxing. During the media day event, Las Cruces PAL will also be selling dvd copies of the feature length documentary on Las Cruces PAL Boxing called "Let's Shine." All proceeds will go back to the Las Cruces PAL Boxing Club. The documentary also features Trout, who began boxing with the Las Cruces PAL Boxing at the age of 10-years-old.
