Austin Trout suffered the first knockdown of his career at the quick hands of Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in front of 39,000-plus fans in San Antonio on Saturday night. The youthful Alvarez, 21, went on to win the fight by unanimous decision and stretch his career record to 42-0-1 while unifying the 154lb division as super welterweight champ of the WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine. Canelo also avenged an earlier loss by his brother, Rigoberto, to Trout in February of 2011. We really hope that Canelo started the fight by saying “I am here to avenge my brother, Rigoberto Alvarez.”

Alvarez handed Trout the first knockdown of his career with a big straight right early in the seventh round. Trout absorbed the blow before doing a slapstick-like stagger and falling to the canvas. Trout recovered to go the distance, but Alvarez was too much for him on Saturday.
