Lara, Despite Bad Blood, Feels Angulo Will KO Canelo

By Miguel Rivera

There are certainly no friendly feelings between junior middleweights Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12KOs) and Alfredo Angulo (22-3, 18KOs).

Last June, they went to war in Carson, California. Lara dominated early, but then saw himself dropped hard and in serious trouble during the contest. Lara came back in the ninth, stopping Angulo after a punch injured the Mexican fighter's eye.

Since the fight, Angulo has claimed that Lara poked him in the eye and the fight should not have been stopped. Lara claims Angulo is "a quitter" who turned his back on the fight.

Even with that loss, it was Angulo who landed a lucrative fight with former champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs) on March 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Lara is expecting to have a rematch with Angulo, because the Cuban fighter anticipates an upset.

"If Angulo's eye holds up from the pounding of his last fight, I think he will knock
Canelo out," Lara predicted.

Lara believes he was passed up by both me and he's ready to fight anyone at 154-pounds or 160.

"I will fight anybody they put in front of me, that's the difference between being the best and being protected. There is no need to protect the best. The team of myself, Al Haymon and Luis Decubas Jr. have the best promoter in Golden Boy. I know they will deliver me the big fights," Lara said.
