Yeah, typical, unfortunately. He's the "draw". Trout insisted on random drug testing through USADA, so he was able to put his mark on the terms as well.

One of the benefits, I think, to this GBP/HBO/TR/SHO war might just be in keeping everyone in line. P's and Q's and all that. Each entity needs to look great right now...controversy in the way of scoring, mismatches, robberies etc. would not be a good look for anyone right now. So maybe, just maybe, the fans might win this time.

Actually it seemed like trout wanted vada or something. In the article I read he was kind of going at usada

Hahahaha!!!


Sounds like somebody's having a serious case of doubt going on. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)


Sort of reminds me of how Manny made Mosley take extra testing, but he himself didn't.


Really I didn't know Mosley took extra testing? Although he did tell Mayweather after the fight that he should get Pac tested. Sounds like a sore loser to me

Correct. He would have preferred VADA over USADA. He expressed some concerns over USADA handling it (not sure on what basis). But the testing is through USADA.

With every new training blog post I read from Austin Trout, I like him more and more...I believe in him more and more...and I find myself more and more excited about a fight I was already pretty stoked about!!

Anyone else enjoying his blog as much as I am?

It is a great blog that's well written, which shows that he could also be well spoken to the public

Definitely! And he comes up with some great soundbites. One of my favorites, referencing the pro-Cotto fans at Madison: "They were trying to put this fish out of water. But what they didn't understand is, this fish moonwalks in outer space."

Clever guy. Hope he stays hungry and grounded.

He said something about them hiding tests or destroying them, kind of curious to know what he's talking about.

I HAD NO IDEA! Shane had to do extra testing while Manny did not! That's insane.
