Erislandy Lara vs. Emanuele Della Rosa WBC Eliminator

By Miguel Rivera

The World Boxing Council has advised BoxingScene.com that WBC International champion Emanuele Della Rosa (31-1, 8KOs) will be the opponent for Erislandy Lara in a final junior middleweight eliminator. Della Rosa lost in 2009, by split decision, to middleweight Sebastian Zbik.

Lara (17-1-2, 11KOs) faced Vanes Marirosyan in a final eliminator last November. They went to a nine round technical decision draw after Vanes suffered cut above his left eye from an accidental clash of heads. The WBC ordered them to fight again, but Vanes took a pass with no written contract clause for the winner to get a guaranteed shot at WBC champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Your typical garbage from TELEVISA. Suleiman is a fraud. WBC is a joke. I wonder what palenque in Uruapan, Mich. Will this garbage take place in.
