Trout has not fought since losing a decision to Jermell Charlo last June

Austin “No Doubt” Trout will make his first ring appearance since last June next month when he faces former U.S. Olympian Terrell Gausha in Biloxi, Mississippi, headlining a May 25th PBC on FS1 show co-helmed by Chordel Booker vs. Wale Omotoso.

Trout (31-5, 17 KO), who handed Miguel Cotto the latter’s first-ever loss at Madison Square Garden and subsequently gave Canelo everything he could handle, is just 1-3 in his last four, losing competitive decisions to the Charlo brothers and suffering a TKO loss to Jarrett Hurd. He’s still a strong super welterweight, though; even in the Hurd loss, he was doing well until his larger foe started to wear him down. At 33, a title run looks to be out of the picture unless Tony Harrison skips a few contenders, but he shouldn’t be written off yet.

Gausha (21-1. 10 KO) represented America in London, but has had a fairly unremarkable pro career, feasting on mid-level opposition until Erislandy Lara outclassed him in 2017. He returned from 14 months away last December, knocking out PBC regular Joey Hernandez in one.

Booker (14-0, 7 KO) is the A-side of the co-main, a developing prospect going up against a decent gatekeeper in Omotoso (27-3, 21 KO). This fight will end an 18-month layoff for the Nigeria-born, Oxnard-based Omotoso.
