Alvarez-Trout headed to Mexico

By Gabriel F. Cordero

WBA super welterweight interim world champion Rigoberto ‘Español’ Alvarez is currently in his hardest period of training for his first defense against mandatory challenger Austin Trout. Sources say that the Alvarez-Trout fight will be held January 29 in Mexico under the Golden Boy Promotions banner with venues in Leon, Puerto Vallarta, Guadalajara and Tepic under consideration.

Two other Canelo Promotions prospects will see action, as well. WBA #4 super bantamweight Victor “Vikingo” Terrazas will face #2 ranked former WBA bantamweight champion Nehomar Cermeño and WBA #6 flyweight Jesus “Zurdo” Jimenez meets WBA #2 Jean Piero Perez. Both matches will be WBA eliminators.
