WBA interim super welterweight beltholder Erislandy Lara and former WBA super welterweight titlist Austin Trout held an international media conference call today in advance of their bout on the Zab Judah vs. Paulie Malignaggi undercard on Dec. 7 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn
Austin Trout: Where he excels in technicalities, footwork, speed, precision, I feel he lacks heart and will and we’re going to expose that…I’m going to make him look like the amateur he is.
Erislandy Lara: Austin Trout is an OK fighter. There’s nothing special about him. I feel he’s on his way out. He had his time and I’m going to prove that. As far as having a heart, let’s see in the ring…I’m focused on busting up Austin Trout’s mouth.
