Trout Demands Rematch, Gausha Wants Title Shot
Many people saw Terrell Gausha as the clear winner of Saturday’s showdown against former world champion Austin Trout, as the two boxers went to a split-decision draw on Saturday night.
While Judges saw it 96-94 for Trout, a 95-95 draw, and a 99-91 rout for Gausha, many who saw the fight gave the world title challenger the win, and Trout feels the need for an immediate rematch.
“We need to do that again. That wasn’t right,” said Trout. “Let’s do it again. That was after a year layoff. Timing is going to be off. Now that I am a little more active. I need an immediate rematch. Immediate.
“You never know how the judges are seeing it, but I know 99-91 for (Gausha) wasn’t right. I was definitely in there more than one round,” continued Trout. “But I didn’t feel good in there tonight. I had to force a lot of things, and I had to close the gap in the later rounds.”
“I felt like I won the fight,” said Gausha. “That’s boxing sometimes. You don’t get the decision.
“I have been through a lot this camp. It is what it is,” continued Gausha. “I caught a bad cold the last week of training camp. My father passed away during this training camp.
“I don’t really care about a rematch with Trout. I just want bigger fights. I’d like to do something different. But if we have to go through (Trout) again we’ll do it and just make it more convincing next time.”
