    I don't think Trout's as faded as others, I'm not sold on Hurd quite as much as others either. Wouldn't be surprised if he gave Hurd fits. Should be a fun fight, good style math up. As others have mentioned, this is a great card.

    Really looking forward to this card. I question Hurd, I haven't seen much from him, but I wasn't really impressed at all from what I saw. I'm pulling for a Trout upset, he's taken better fighters into deeper waters and will be too crisp for Hurd I think who looked very sloppy, slow, and off-balance from what I remember.

    he still looked good against a dangerous charlo. perhaps jermall faded later in the fight because he had problems making the weight but hurd has done nothing. slaps with his punches and a limited amateur background. i like Austin and hell probably be a plus 200

    I hope so, but I am also willing to bet that it is easier for a promoter to move a fighter up, then to move an older one back up.

    I think they see enough slippage that Hurd can outwork Trout and win; probably a close split loss.

    they both are self promoted and are fighting under the haymon pbc banner. I think its a pick em fight and trout will be at plus 200 or higher. imo, hurd is nothing special

    ostensibly self-promoted by Haymon unofficially has a lot of involvement when it comes to putting these fights together.

    I can see why it's a pick'em, which is part of the reason I see if being a split loss for Trout, even though I am pulling for him.

    Harrison showed the world Hurd can be outboxed, we'll see if he learned to cut the ring off.
    Trout has a better gas tank than Harrison, might get an upset.

    Trout opened at +200, now +170 at 5Dimes. I bet Hurd and Hurd KO last time and it worked out but I don't think it's wise at this level for Hurd to potentially drop every round and have to rely on coming back from way behind and get a knockout to win a fight.

    I have questions about both hurd and charlo. So this card as a whole should be fun

    Hurd is a huge overachiever though, which is kind of cool. Plus, he is from right up the road from where I live. However, you can tell that his biggest advantage by far is his size. Skill wise, Trout has him beat easily. I think Hurd has sneaky power so we will see what happens.

    Charlo doesn't have the firepower to match Jack and Sledge, coming out party for Lubin.
