Boxing: Alvarez earns unanimous decision over Trout

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez notched a 12-round unanimous decision victory over Austin Trout Saturday to unify the World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association light middleweight titles. Mexico's Alvarez remained unbeaten, improving to 42-0-1 with 30 knockouts as he retained his WBC title and handed Trout the first defeat of his career to capture the American's WBA belt. "This is for my brother," said Alvarez, whose brother Rigoberto was beaten by Trout in 2011 for the vacant WBA light middlewight crown. "It was a big motivation for this fight."

Boxing: Trout seeks another upset against Alvarez

Austin Trout, who surprised Miguel Cotto for the World Boxing Association light middleweight world title, will look for another upset Saturday in San Antonio when he takes on World Boxing Council champ Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. Trout's punishing unanimous decision over Puerto Rico's Cotto at New York's Madison Square Garden saw the 27-year-old US southpaw improve to 26-0 with 14 knockouts and cemented his status as a rising ring star.
