BKFC champion Austin Trout welcomes fights with Mike Perry and Eddie Alvarez: “It does intrigue me”
Former boxing world champion and current BKFC titleholder Austin Trout is intrigued by potential matchups with Mike Perry and Eddie Alvarez.
Trout certainly knows his stuff when it comes to the sweet science. He has shared the ring with the likes of Canelo Alvarez, Miguel Cotto, Jermall and Jermell Charlo, and Erislandy Lara. Trout even defeated Cotto via unanimous decision back in late 2012. He has taken that experience to blossom in bare knuckle boxing, recently capturing the BKFC Welterweight Championship.
Now, “No Doubt” has his sights set on two notable names in the combat sports space.
Austin Trout Eyes Fights With Mike Perry & Eddie Alvarez
MMA Junkie Radio recently had the BKFC champion Austin Trout join the show. During his appearance, Trout said that while he isn’t one to make demands, he’d like to mix it up with Mike Perry and Eddie Alvarez, both former UFC fighters.
“Nothing has been shot my way yet, but I’ll be there,” Trout said. “I’m just going to throw a name out there. Eddie Alvarez is a good fight for LA. Tony Soto would be a good fight for LA. Tony Soto, they say he’s the No. 1 at 165. Those are two different decent names to put under my belt.
“…To be honest, the Mike Perry fight does intrigue me. It does. It does intrigue me. … The way I’m feeling right now, it seems like a tough one on paper but I feel like I’ll make that fight look easy too.”
Trout might just get his wish, as both men haven’t been shy in expressing their love to scrap. Perry’s stock has been soaring, and turning down a title opportunity just doesn’t seem like “Platinum’s” style. It’s important to note, however, that Perry competes at middleweight and has even dabbled in the light heavyweight division under BKFC.
