Erislandy Lara is Eyed For Molina vs. Charlo Winner
By Rick Reeno
Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer advised BoxingScene.com that he would like to match WBA 'regular' junior middleweight champion Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12KOs) against the winner of this Saturday's fight between IBF junior middleweight champion Carlos Molina (22-5-2, 6KOs) and undefeated Jermall Charlo (17-0, 13KOs).
Schaefer would like Lara to stay busy with an interim-fight and then potentially face the Molina-Charlo winner in the fall.
Molina-Charlo will be part of the undercard to the Canelo-Angulo Showtime Pay-Per-View at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
If Molina retains his title, the fight is certainly possible. There is history between both men. They fought to a controversial ten round draw in March of 2011 at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
If Charlo captures the title, a unification with Lara will be difficult to make. Both Lara and Charlo are trained by veteran coach Ronnie Shields. Since both fighters have a close relationship with Shields, it's not likely that either of them will be open to the idea of parting with his services - and Shields will certainly reject the idea of going against either fighter.
