Light Middleweight

Light Middleweight title

On 5 February 2011, Trout won the WBA World Light Middleweight Championship bout with a unanimous decision against Interim champion Rigoberto Álvarez in his foe's hometown of Guadalajara, Mexico.[4][5]

His first defense of his newly awarded title was a win against mandatory challenger David Alonso López on June 11.[6][7]

On 11 November 2011, Trout stopped Australian Frank LoPorto. Trout's next fight was against Ring Top 10 Light Middleweight, Delvin Rodriguez. Trout dominated the fight, going on to win a one sided unanimous decision.

Trout vs. Cotto

He then defended his WBA Light Middleweight Championship against former three division champion and No. 2 ranked Light Middleweight, Miguel Cotto, on December 1, 2012, in New York City. Trout started the fight off fast, using his quick combinations to continually get his punches off first against Cotto. Trout also used his superiority in footwork to evade most of Cotto's punches, and was able to out muscle Cotto off the ropes when he was cornered in the fight. During the middle rounds, Cotto found success trapping Trout on the ropes and keeping him there, ripping Trout with body shots and finding the range with his left hook. Trout regained control in the later rounds, even backing Cotto up later in the fight, and stunned Cotto several times down the stretch with his straight left hand. Trout won the fight by a wide unanimous decision, giving him the biggest win of his career thus far. After the fight, Trout called out fellow Light Middleweight champion Saúl Álvarez.
