MGM Grand, Las Vegas - WBA 'regular' junior middleweight champion Erislandy Lara will be an interested party later tonight, when he sits ringside to watch Saul "Canelo" Alvarez trade leather with fellow Mexican Alfredo Angulo.

Last June, Lara faced Angulo in a drama-filled fight. He was down twice before rallying in the tenth round to stop Angulo by way of an eye injury.

Lara, who picks Angulo to get the upset later tonight, says Canelo disrespected everyone by failing to make the junior middleweight limit. Canelo and Angulo, on Friday morning, agreed to fight at a catch-weight of 155-pounds - after Canelo realized he was unable to squeeze down to junior middleweight.

"I think it's bullsh*t. It is disrespectful not only to Angulo and his team, but to the fans - because this is on the pay-per-view level. This is not Showtime any more or ShoBox, this a pay-per-view. He says he is such a big star, then he should make the weight and obligate his contract," Lara told

"I still feel the way regardless of Canelo not making weight. I just think Angulo is going to steamroll him. He is a strong guy, he comes ready to fight and throws a lot of punches. I just think Angulo is going to steamroll him."

Money Mayweather should be fighting Lara, not Maidana. Lara should be calling out Mayweather.

[QUOTE=DoktorSleepless]Why don't we see this more often? Recently, I could only think of a few instances. Haye did it in a Klitschko conference, Pascal did it after Dawson beat Hopkins, and Martinez kind of it did After Chavez beat Rubio.[/QUOTE] the networks still push fights that way

Tell Lara To Shut Up, Canelo Is 23/24 Yrs Old & Growing; The Fight Still Goes On!

They will both hydrate on fight night and and this weight thing won't matter. Canelo will stop this rube and then the clowns can complain it was a weight issue, although Canelo is considerably shorter. Canelo gets the winner of Cotto/Marquez next while GGG knocks out Chavez Jr, setting up a great...
