Two of the best junior middleweights in the world are getting ready to square off against one another, Erislandy Lara vs. Austin Trout. The Lara vs. Trout fight has been heating up as these two seem to dislike one another, and have plenty to say about it.
Here, Al Bernstein offers his keys to victory for Lara vs. Trout in this special video fight preview and analysis.
Bernstein believes that Trout should establish his jab, work hard and stay busier than Lara, and avoid underestimating the power and counter-punching of Lara.
Lara should also establish the jab against Trout, as each man looks to be the superior tactitian in the ring. From there, Lara wants to make Trout come forward, and he wants to land his big right hook.
As I always say, it’s fun to watch Bersntein offer his pre-fight take on big matches, whether or not he’s the one who ends up as announcer. Of course, he will be there ringside for this match.
Stay tuned for more fight week updates on Lara vs. Trout and the rest of the Brooklyn quadrupleheader on Showtime this Saturday.
