Erislandy Lara: Extra Weight Won't Help Canelo Win

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBA 'regular' junior middleweight champion Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12KOs) is not worried about Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (43-1-1, 31KOs) coming in much heavier than him later tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Both boxers weighed in at the catch-weight of 155-pounds.

Canelo is expected to rehydrate to around 170-pounds or even more. Lara plans to stay lighter for speed and defensive quickness. Canelo likes to pack on the weight, after he makes weight, for some added power when he explodes with his rapid combinations.

“Every fighter that I’ve fought has been heavier than me and I’ve been able to deal with them, so we’re not worried about Canelo’s size.  Everyone goes into the ring how they feel comfortable.  I’m not worried about his weight on fight day," Lara said.

“We’re going to wait for him. We’re going to see what he can show. The Cuban style is the best style in boxing.  Everybody knows that we win the most medals at the Olympics, at international tournaments.  And that’s shown throughout our history."

[QUOTE=.:: JSFD26 ::.]He comes in at 154ish while most JMWs come in at 170+. One guy out of his whole f*cking career. I've always said aside from Molina, all the other guys have been bigger. Williams Angulo Trout Canelo And I think Hernandez was bigger too.[/QUOTE] Was grady brewe...

[QUOTE=BoxingFan82]I think Canelo's stamina issues are primarily due to his body composition (stocky frame, etc.). Nothing will change that meaningfully although I wouldn't be surprised to see his stamina improve modestly if he moves up and doesn't have to drop so many pounds to make ~154. At...
