Trout will not fight Smith in Las Vegas
El Paso, TX — Las Cruces boxer and former WBA Light Middleweight title holder Austin Trout will not get the chance to meet Ishe Smith September 14 in Las Vegas on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather-Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez bout card.
Smith will meet Carlos Molina for the IBF Light Middleweight title belt on the undercard of Mayweather-Alvarez.
Newschannel 9 spoke to Trout's training camp this week, and they confirmed they had never received any paperwork from the bout promoters, and were eagerly anticipating paperwork for a potential bout versus Smith. It never materialized.
No word on when or where Trout will fight again. Trout lost a unanimous decision to Saul Alvarez on April 20, 2013 for the WBC and WBC Light Middleweight title. Trout's record currently stands at 26-1 with 14 knockouts.
