WBA super welterweight champion Austin Trout remained undefeated as he won a twelve round unanimous decision over “The Destroyer” David Lopez, to defend his title on Saturday night at the Auditorio Miguel Barragan in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Scores were 119-109, 117-110 and 118-109 for Trout.
Lopez, the 33-year-old mandatory challenger, undefeated in six years after struggling at the start of his career, made no impression on Trout and his record dropped to 40-13, including 23 knockouts.
The Sonora fighter lost seven of his first sixteen bouts and was on the verge of becoming just another journeyman, until he turned his career around.
Lopez after losing to Fulgencio Zuniga in January 2005 he went unbeaten through 16 fights.
Last year he beat Saul Roman and in March this year he dropped to light-middleweight and won the vacant NABA title with a majority decision over Michael Rosales.
The 25-year-old American is now unbeaten after 23 fights. He has stopped 22 of his opponents.
The 25 year-old claimed the vacant title in February by out-pointing Saul Alvarez’s brother Rigoberto by a landslide margin in Jalisco,
