Erislandy Lara-Ronald Hearns To Battle on February 11th?

By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg

Sources close to the situation have advised BoxingScene.com that junior middleweight Erislandy Lara (15-1-1, 10KOs) could very well end up facing Ronald Hearns (26-2, 20KOs) on January 21st, which is a Showtime televised doubleheader. Hearns has been inactive since challenging Felix Sturm for the WBA middleweight title in February. He was stopped in seven rounds. Months later he was scheduled to face WBC champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., who withdrew from the contest with a hand injury. Former champions Andre Berto and Victor Ortiz would battle in the main event.

Lara will win, maybe TKO Hearns who hasn't fought since his tko loss to Sturm 10 months ago...

Ronald, has had to learn his craft as a professional without the standout amature background of the expirenced Lara. Lara has the background of a fighter that exceeds 50 professional fights. This is a no brainer! I'm not knocking Hearns…
