Jarrett Hurd vs Austin Trout Set For September 30!
IBF World junior middleweight champion Swift Jarrett Hurd will be defending his title for the first time against former WBA 154lb champion Austin Trout (30-3, 17 KOs) on September 30.
Hurd (20-0, 14 KOs) beat Tony Harrison by a 9th round knockout on February 25 to claim the vacant IBF World 154lb title at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama.
Trout’s last fight took place just over a year ago when he lost a 12 round unanimous decision to Jermall Charlo. Trout gave Charlo a lot of problems going into the second half of that bout to make it a close and very competitive fight.
