LAS CRUCES — World boxing champion Austin Trout will soon take on a new opponent, and "she" is from right here in the Borderland. It may sound like suicide to some, but Central Elementary School Principal Eloisa Solis has agreed to take on the Super Welterweight Champion on Monday, March 4th, so long as students at the Las Cruces school raise $2,000. It's all a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Pennies for Patients Campaign. Trout is also trying to line up a nationally televised fight with Saul Alveraz on May 4th.
