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

Comment by PacmanP4PLegend on 06-19-2014

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…
