Gonna be in vegas for evo but really want to go to this such a mix up.

Awsome match I got Canelo winning by late ko. Pretty solid undercard also.

Can't wait for this fight!

This fight will be absolutely EPIC! You got the young, talented Alvarez, got a great record going already but don't be against Olympic gold people. Lara is unbeaten and highly under-rated for his level of talent and skill... Should be a great fight none-the-less but expect a solid UD for Lara ...

Just three more weeks!
