20th April, Alvarez v Trout, my take.

20h April will be a night to keep free, as 2 of the best upcoming fighters will go head to head and compete for a potential shot at current P4P champ Floyd Mayweather. Both Austin Trout and Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez will look to overcome each other as this could shoot them to the big payday they are both seeking.

After an incredible upset against Miguel Cotto, Austin Trout has put himself in great position but must defeat the odds by putting an end to the incredible win streak of the Mexican. Rumours are already circulating that Canelo is next inline for Mayweather, but I can't help but agree with many critics and reporters that the young gunslinger should hold fire and continue to wow throughout the division and work his way through an overwhelming talent of fighters.

Trout on the other hand will no doubt be entering this match up the underdog just like he did when he  outclassed the Puerto Rican Cotto, but he offers an incredible ring presense, with great in ring ability, speed and strength he can surely do what many have failed to do and unlock Canelos weaknesses. It will be the undoing of one of these men, for me I have to favour Alvarez, but I really hope Trout pushes him to the edge of his ability.

With a barrage of incredible fights coming our way this is definitely one not to be missed, styles make fights and this fight is built on two different styles that will surely prevail as one of the fight of the year contenders. Mayweather will be watching this one very closely, although not to close as he will currently be getting in shape for his showdown with Robert Gurrero, another potential fight for one of these two ringmasters.
