Austin Trout said he needed an impressive performance to return to the big fights, and he got what he wanted.

The former junior middleweight champion knocked out Joey Hernandez with a dazzling body barrage in the debut of PBC’s Toe-to-Toe Tuesdays on Fox Sports 1 from Hollywood Palladium in California.

The end came at 3:00 of Round 6 after Trout drilled Hernandez with a right to the body, waited for an opening, nailed him with a left cross, then dug another left that closed the show.
