EL PASO, Texas -

Boxer and Las Cruces native Austin "No Doubt" Trout has been selected as this year's FirstLight Federal Credit Union Sun Bowl Parade Grand Marshal.

The 77th annual parade is at 10 a.m. Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28.

Honorary grand marshals will be Mitchell Marcus and Jonathon Montanez.

They are the two former high school basketball players who have been recognized nationally for their sportsmanship moment during a rivalry basketball game earlier this year. Marcus played for Coronado and Montanez played for Franklin.

Trout, 28, had an undefeated record until April 2013, dropping a decision to Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, making his record 26-1 with 14 knockouts. The junior middleweight boxer was inducted into the New Mexico Boxing Hall of Fame this past summer.

"I am very excited to be a part of the FirstLight Federal Credit Union Sun Bowl Parade, which has been a regional tradition since 1936," said Trout. "I continue to honor the tradition of the biggest event in the Southwest by serving the parade with pride."

Review Stand tickets for the parade can be purchased now at FirstLight Federal Credit Union branches, Circle K locations and the Sun Bowl Association office. For more information call (915) 533-4416.
