Former 154lb world champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout takes on former title challenger Terrell Gausha in a 10-round main event on PBC on FOX Sports 1 in Biloxi, Mississippi on May 25. The co-main event features undefeated junior middleweight Chordale Booker taking on tough veteran boxer Wale “Lucky Boy” Omotoso of Nigeria in a 10-round bout, rising welterweight prospect Eimantas Stanionis will be the open the main card broadcast.
Austin Trout (31-5, 17 KOs) is a former WBA junior middleweight world champion and at 33 he is at a crossroads in his career, another loss could mean his days as a top contender are likely over.
Trout made changes to his camp by adding Floyd Mayweather Sr. as his head trainer and Oscar De La Hoya’s longtime conditioning coach Rob Garcia to the team.
His biggest win was against future hall of famer Miguel Cotto, but all his losses were hard-fought and some were controversial decisions that could have gone his way like his fight with Mexican super star Canelo Alvarez.
This is an opportunity to revive his career. If he cannot beat a top contender like Gausha he may have to hang up the gloves and let go of his desire to become a world champion again, if he wins it could be one more step to an ultimate comeback story.
Terrell Gausha (21-1, 10 KOs) represented the United States at the 2012 Olympic games in London. He has one professional loss to former champion and slick Cuban southpaw Erislandy Lara. At 31 he feels he is fresher than Trout who has more wear and tear on his body.
After his loss to Lara, Gausha wants to come back with a vengeance and knockout Trout for calling him out.
