Trout vs. Gausha Ends in Spilt Draw

Many felt Terrell Gausha scored a huge win over WBA super welterweight champion Austin Trout; however, the judges controversially scored the fight a split draw.

The fight headlined a Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) card at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Missippi.

Gausha was in control for the first couple of rounds, coming after and pressuring Trout while connecting with a strong right cross. Trout started to fight back and hold his own in the third before the action slowed over the next few rounds.

The former world champion tried to make things close during that span by working his jab and forcing Gausha’s back to the ropes, using the jab to set up shots downstairs. Meanwhile, Gausha continued to try and press forward while being pickier with his shots.

Gausha regained firm control in the eighth, where he scored multiple jabs while successfully getting out of dodge from most of Trout’s punching. Trout had a last-ditch attempt to score a big blow in the 10th and final round, throwing wildly while Gausha continued to be smart with his shot selection.

One judge had Gausha winning by a wide margin, 99-91, but one scored it 96-94 for Trout and another 95-95, forcing the split draw result.
