An estimated 1,400 fans turned out at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas for the kickoff press conference for the April 20 154lb unification showdown between WBC super middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and WBA super middleweight champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout.
Trout spoke first saying, “If I didn’t believe I would be victorious, I wouldn’t be standing here in front of you today…April 20th isn’t going to be easy, but I’ll come back unified unified world champion.”
Alvarez said he was very humbled by the number of fans in attendance and said “This is why I work work very hard in the gym. April 20 will be a great fight!”
This was the first of a three city press tour. Tomorrow the fighters will be in both Houston and McAllen.
