Polideportivo Sur in Chihuahua, Mexico – Former WBA junior middleweight champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout (33-5-1, 18 KOs) dominated Juan Garcia (21-7-2, 12 KOs) over twelve rounds to secure a unanimous decision win.
Tourt, 35-years-old, has too much experience for Garcia, who didn’t have the experience or the tools to upset the veteran. In the tenth and final round, Trout was doing a job on Garcia and likely could have pulled off a stoppage if there were two more rounds.
All three of the official judges saw it 99-91 on the cards.
It was Trout’s fourth victory in Mexico. The last time Trout fought in Mexico was in 2011, with back to back bouts in the country – including a victory over Canelo Alvarez’s older brother, Rigoberto Alvarez.
Trout is hoping to get more active in his career. Saturday’s return was the first fight for Trout in a year. He saw action in February of last year, when he stopped Rosbel Montoya in two rounds.
In 2019, he also had one bout in his career and fought to a ten round split draw with Olympian Terrell Gausha. The contest was very close, with neither boxing running away with a win.
One bout prior, Trout lost a twelve round decision in a world title fight with junior middleweight champion Jermell Charlo.
Trout’s other defeats came at the hands of Jermall Charlo, Jarrett Hurd, Erislandy Lara and Canelo Alvarez. The only boxer to stop him inside the distance was Hurd.
