Prediction,

I think this is a fantastic fight!

Jarrett Hurd has a lot to prove, he is good, he can punch, is he great?, is he on the same level as Charlo, Andrade, Lara?, these are questions about him which haven't been answered yet, Austin Trout could be able to answer them. Jo Jo Dan, Oscar Molina, these are not great opponents, Oscar Molina was tough, went the full 10 against Hurd, but neither of these guys are anything like Austin Trout, and I think it is nearly guaranteed that Trout is the toughest opponent of Hurd's career so far, so this is something of a test for the unbeaten Maryland fighter.

Austin Trout is not Tony Harrison, Harrison was skilled, awkward, frustrating for Hurd, he built up a lead after 6 rounds, but he was fatuigued, and his chin didn't hold up against the power of Hurd, it seemed as if there were the two weaknesses that were important for Hurd. Austin Trout has a fantastic chin and one great engine, he has been 12 rounds many times, he isn't the biggest puncher (though not a non-puncher) he has done plenty of rounds in his time. Austin Trout was able to withstand every punch Jermall Charlo hit him with, without going down, without seeming to be close to falling, and he had his best round of the fight in the eleventh, and a decent final round against a still strong, also very athletic Charlo, so taking these two details into consideration, it is very interesting, because Hurd will have to find another way to get through the New Mexican.

It is extremely difficult for me to predict the outcome of this fight, based on what I've seen from Hurd, one half of my mind tells me Trout will win this one, the other half tells me that when one guy is unbeaten, and another guy has lost three fights, it is very rare that the guy who is not undefeated wins, of course, it can happen, Pacquiao had several losses on his record before beating Bradley, Algieri, speaking of Tim Bradley, he wasn't undefeated when he beat the previously undefeated Jessie Vargas, Marcos Maidana had 3 losses on his record when he beat the then unbeaten Adrien Broner, Badou Jack had a defeat on his record when he beat the previously undefeated Anthony Dirrell, and the same situation with Jacobs against Quillin, there are many more examples recent and historic, so it can happen, but it does not seem likely on paper.

Thinking logically, when I gather the facts and my opinons which will be proven right or wrong, I want to predict Trout to have a little bit too much for Hurd, but at the same time, Hurd has looked solid throughout his career so far, we don't know how good he is, maybe he will rise to the occasion, we don't know his talent, his capabilities, how quickly he is learning, the extent of his power, his adaptability, so the outcome, of this (I believe, 50/50) fight, is very hard to predict.

I think Hurd is going to win an SD, I think it will be razor tight, I think Trout, and his fans will be devastated, they will think their guy won, Trout will think he did enough to win, but the decision will be fair, disagreed with, but fair, hopefully, if the fight is as close as I think it will be, the scorecards will all be narrow either way.

If Hurd is going to win this fight, and Trout is as good as he was against Charlo, Canelo, then he will have to perform very well indeed, because Trout, on his game, is a tough nut to crack, he's big, strong, skilled, durable, athletic. I believe, that if Trout can withstand the power of Canelo, Lara, Charlo, then he can withstand the power of Hurd, I don't think Hurd hits as hard as Charlo, but of course, we don't know yet, and Trout has disappointed before, against Lara, he had a terrible night, and he was dropped heavily twice against a not so great, Daniel Dawson in his comeback fight, but no, if the layoff has not affected Trout (which is something I consider but don't think will be an issue), and the Trout who beat Cotto, came close to beating Charlo and Canelo, then he'll be there for 12 rounds.

I hope Trout wins this, I like Jarrett Hurd, he seems like a good guy, but Austin Trout is liked by everyone, I've always looked up to him, since I was a young lad who had just started boxing, and I watched him beat Cotto, when he called out Canelo respectfully, and at the same time, in a way which got the fans excited. I think Hurd will be given more opportunities in the future with one loss, than Trout will be with four losses, Hurd can afford to lose more, he's younger, so I hope Trout wins, but ultimately, I will be happy for either if they win, and I very much hope it is a good fight which entertains the fans in attendance, and course, as always, both athletes some through the fight 100% safe and healthy. If Trout loses this fight, in the fairly controversial, disputable way I think he will, maybe he can still win a world title in the future.

One thing that I have recently considered, which doesn't convince me Trout will win, is activity, he was active in winning a few fights, with dominant performances against good opponents between his terrible off night against Erislandy Lara and his fantastic performance against Jermall Charlo, but he hasn't fought since his defeat to Charlo, and that was over a year ago now.

I predict Trout to win, I think UD.

What a fight!
I really enjoy watching these fascinating fights, they enthrall you, educate you about what can win fighters fights in boxing, good to watch.

Jarrett Hurd, I thought was great in this fight, he proved a lot, he's a massive 154 lb fighter, he's got arms as long as a flipping heavyweight, and he's teak tough, he makes a lot of mistakes, there a lot of flaws, he took a lot of punishment from Austin Trout, but he was able to use his advantages, and after 6 rounds, at which point, he was behind, without doubt, he took over, and in rounds 9 and 10, the way he was able to be so methodical as he stood there, teed off on Trout, landed with such hard shots, didn't waste anything, a lot of accuracy on the punches as well, he was patient, Hurd, he knew it was a matter of time, he knew he could break Trout down, and he did that, let's be honest though, Hurd does need to work on his defence, I think he is defence is better than we have seen evidence of, and we will see that when he fights a guy who's power he respects, but even so, it is one thing to take so many hard, clean shots from Austin Trout, which are shots which will put miles on the clock if he takes volume and spite like that everytime he fights, but imagine if he went up to 160, and fought Canelo or Golovkin, he'd have a problem. I think Hurd is a very good fighter, it will be interesting to see how he can improve in the future, see what the extent of his talent and skill is, one thing is for sure, and that is that he is no hype job.

Austin Trout has had a great career, he is one of the most unfortunate fighters in the sport, aside from the tragic stories, obviously, but what a fighter Austin Trout is, time, and time again, he has either won, or done fantastic in defeat, I saw a great fighter just come up short against an even greater boxer, when he fought Canelo, then Charlo, and now Hurd, he looked awful against Lara, but that was a bad day at the office. You could be a critic, and call Trout a bit of a nearly man, there are "could haves", "would haves" which can be thrown around, but the upshot is, he wasn't quite good enough in his 4 defeats. I think had Trout fought a smaller, slightly less dangerous fighter, he may have won, had he not had 16 months out of the ring, it may have turned out differently, he's 32, he's taken some beatings, but I think he might have come of age, I did not see a vulnerable looking Austin Trout in there, I didn't see a fighter who's punch resistance had gone, I didn't see a fighter who couldn't sustain a high punch output, maybe he does have a big fight or two left in him, what an achievement it would be if he became a world champion again, I wouldn't write him off, but one might think, that after the beating he just took from Hurd, what's that taken out of him?, he might not have looked over the hill against Hurd, but how do we know he won't against another world champion?, it is interesting. I hope Trout is darn proud of himself for his gutsy, skilful, athletic, spirited performance on this fight, if he decides to retire, all his fans will respect and support his decision, and salute the warrior, if he decides he wants to continue for another year or two, then good for him, I would like to see him in maybe one more big fight, because I just think he has been unfortunate, and still is underrated, he always has been, and I think always will be. Whatever happens, Austin Trout joins Floyd Mayweather Jr, Manny Pacquiao, Saul Alvarez, as a man who beat Puerto Rican boxing legend Miguel Cotto, something Zab Judah, Joshua Clottey, Sergio Martinez, Paulie Malignaggi, Shane Mosley, Alfonso Gomez all failed to do, and Trout came so close to beating Saul Alvarez, nobody can take any of this away from him.

I wouldn't mind seeing Austin Trout vs Kell Brook, I think Trout would have a chance of winning that, I think also maybe, Trout vs Martirosyan in a world title eliminator, Trout may decide to hang up the gloves, you couldn't call it a premature retirement, but I can see him having another 2 or 3 fights.
